General Approach

When it comes to general website design our approach is as follows:

If you accept the quote, we’ll process payment to get things started. As required by the project, there may be an onboarding call to discuss the details in more detail.

When we have the branding details, such as the logo and images, we’ll make a mock-up of your new website for you to review within 5 business days.

You can review the design and suggest refinements accordingly. Generally, up to 3 revisions are possible within the allotted estimate.

Once the design is approved, we will start work on our WordPress development. We usually need three to five banner images for rotating banners.

We can install your WordPress website and automatically set it up on your content management system upon approval.

Depending on the time and resources allocated to your project, we can transfer as much content from the old website as possible or agreed upon. We’ll provide instructions for you to do this in-house if needed.

When you have reviewed and edited the site and all other content has been approved, the site is now ready to go live on our servers.

We need to confirm the go-live date for your new website or project so we can launch it accordingly.

Your website will go live in two days. We require upfront payment before transferring any of your data to the live servers.

Please note that hours are limited on this project. Estimates for projects under $5000 are based on an assumption that they will take 8-12 weeks to complete, depending on the size of your project. Late completion may increase costs of project management services. If you do not think you can finish in time, please let us know before starting the work.

When you begin a project, include all pertinent details so your team is well-prepared to work on it. This way, the team can be efficient without incurring additional costs.

You will be kept updated on the project via email or phone messages. If you need an update, please don’t hesitate to contact us at anytime. Please provide your full information when we first begin, so that it’s easier for everyone involved.

Once the website is live on our servers, it will be placed under the care of our developers as part of your ongoing website maintenance plan.

We have a great attitude and are willing to take on anything. If you need something changed let us know!
