We want to make sure you know what you are getting when you hire us to do your website. From the time you first contact us, we will discuss and coordinate every step of the project with you by phone and through email.
Once we have the information on how you want your website to look, we will plan, setup and design the initial website.
During the project, we may need to modify, add, or remove images to bring the website in line with your requirements. We use Adobe PhotoShop to maximize your photos and images to show their best online. We will also work with your graphics designer if you need to incorporate a logo into your website. (Sorry, we generally don't do logos.) We also have a large collection of stock images and graphics that may be used.
Create your website
Once we have created an initial "Home" page for you to review, we will send you a link to review the design at your convenience. You may suggest changes in colors, positioning of images, change in fonts, etc. We will make the changes for you and let you know when the site is ready for your review again. During this process, up to three revisions of the website may be made.
Initial design approval
Once you accept the initial design of the Home page, we will create all of the remaining website pages, and upload them in a temporary directory. All of the content you have provided will be inserted into the appropriate pages. A link will then be sent to you to review the website when you can make suggestions for changing content, position of photos, add additional images, etc.
Website upload preparation
When you have given the go-ahead to make the website live for public view, we will add the necessary keyword coding for every page, as well as do a final check of every page. Our final checks include spelling, making sure all coding is compliant with current standards, and that all links from and to each page works properly.
Search engine registration optimization / SEO
Once the website is uploaded, we will create a site map (.xml file) and submit it for website indexing. If you have requested a visitor's counter to be installed, we will do that as well when we know the website is being indexed by search engines.
Free 30-day follow-up support
After the website is live, we continue to support you. We will make minor changes to the website for 30 days from the day it is uploaded at no charge. We will continue to monitor the website during those 30 days to make sure nothing "breaks".
For existing websites, we can design a new website and transfer over the content, photos, etc., replacing the existing website through your current web host service. We can do either a flat fee or charge under our maintenance rate depending upon the extent of the work and time needed.
Website content assistance
We know people do not always have time to sit down and write text for their websites. If you need help, let us know up front. We will prepare website content with your general input. We will also do research for you if you want us to. We charge $50.00 per hour for the time we spend doing the research and writing the content.
