Whether you need a website built from the ground up a redesign, knowing the process will keep us focused.
This is our opportunity to build a relationship, address concerns, get you up to speed and start the project on the right foot.
First, you will let me know what you hope to achieve with your website by filling out my online project application. If I feel my skills can help you reach your goals, we will set up a meeting, call or Zoom session so I can learn more.
Proposal & Contract
A few days after we meet, I send you a complete proposal, an estimate for your investment, and a contract. We sign the contract, you send a deposit and I put you on my schedule. You then start collecting all your content and send it to me.
Project Kick-off Call
This is our official start of your project. Over the phone or via Zoom, we will review your proposal details, talk about process and do everything we can to start off on the path to success with your new website.
I start by sending emails that educate and follow them with a comprehensive brand and website discovery questionnaire. This is much like the project application but more in depth.
This is step-by-step how we will design, develop and launch your new website.
Our first order of business is to create a working site map. This is a document that shows the global, hierarchical view of a website’s pages and content. Think of this as a flowchart of the pages of your website.
With the site map we complete, we move on to prototyping. In this step, I'm creating what I would call a "black and white" version of the design draft of your website. A prototype is nothing more than a stripped down website framework
Once we have approved the prototype that includes your site map, we turn that into the templates for our design. We create a homepage template, a regular page template and any special feature templates needed.
After you have signed off on the design phase, I will take apply that design to all pages of your website using the content you have provided. I will add any further plugins or features needed for your site and test across devices.
Once you approve your site, we publish it to your hosting and once again test in major browsers and on many devices. We connect Google Analytics and apply any 301 redirects needed.
Learning how to use your new WordPress website is an option. Some clients prefer to have WebCami Site Design do all their design maintenance, some D-I-Y, and others want a combo of the two.
WordPress requires back end maintenance. I will enroll you in my WordPress Care Plan for a free month so you can evaluate the service. I provide daily backups, virus scans, database optimization and reporting.
I will provide 30 days of support after launch to make sure any bugs/small changes have been ironed out and that you are confident using your new website. You'll also receive follow up information, resources, tips, and tools that will make managing your site easier.
