STEP 1 - LAYOUT AND DESIGN

A large and time consuming part of the website design is in the layout, structure and design of the site. I’ll crate the framework of the website and will send the homepage and a sub-page (or more upon request) for approval.

STEP 2 - DEVELOPMENT

Once the site layout and design is approved. I’ll move forward with designing of all pages, functionality, and responsive code, making sure your site looks great and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers.

STEP 3 - REVISIONS AND EDITS

Once the site is read for final review, you’ll be able to review each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is revised completely to your satisfaction.

4) WRAPPING UP & GOING LIVE!

Once the site is ready to go live, all the unnecessary plugins, pages, images and backed-end files will be removed. The new site will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need restored. Once live, please allow 24-48 hours for propagation to occur. Some computers will need to be refreshed in order to see the new site, though most computers will see the new site immediately depending on the wifi connection.

You website login and all credentials will be sent to you via email. Though your logins and passwords will be saved locally, PLEASE SAVE ALL LOGINS FOR YOUR RECORDS AS WELL.

Upon completion, you’ll receive my “moving forward” process where you’ll receive tips and ticks on marketing your new website and also information on our Maintenance/Security plan which I highly recommend for all my clients.
