Getting Started

Here’s an overview of what we need and a process overview to help guide you along before we begin!

What we need to get started

First of all, relax.  It can be overwhelming when we start asking for content. Which is why we keep the process so simple!

We’ll email you a link to your project file.

Mostly you can just type directly into the file and provide information that we require to get started.

If we request images, we’ll  tell you how to send them to us.

Easy, right? 🙂

Read on so you understand our design process. 

Our Design Process

Designing a website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process that can be overwhelming. To better help you understand what to expect during the design and development, I’ve outlined my process into 3 steps:

l

1) Layout and Design

A large and time consuming part of designing a website is in the planning and layout stage of the process. We’ll create the sitemap (Page/Menu hierarchy) of the website for approval first, then  design the home page  for approval.

2) Build & Develop

Once the site layout and design is approved, we’ll move forward with the designing all site pages,implementing all functionality and plugins. We’ll make sure your site looks great and functions across all devices and web browsers before moving to the final step.

3) Edits & Revisions

Once the site is ready for final review, you’ll be able to review each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is ready for launch. We ask that you please review ALL pages to make sure all spelling, grammar, addresses and information are correct before going live.

 Wrapping Up & GOING LIVE!

Once the site is ready to go live, your new site will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need to be restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to pull up on some devices. Your browser may need to be refreshed in order to see the new site and though most will see the new site fairly quickly after the launch.

Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you in your project file.  Though your logins and passwords will be saved by me locally, PLEASE SAVE ALL LOGINS FOR YOUR RECORDS AS WELl. Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to our Moving Forward page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website and also information on our Maintenance/Security Plan which I highly recommend for all my clients.
