Step One: Questionaire
First, we begin the process with a questionnaire to get to know your brand and business. This goes in depth to figure out what you want in your website, from the design to the content, this is the foundation of the entire project and an important first step to begin the process. As a result, I will get an idea of what design you are looking for plus more in-depth information about your business.
Step Two: Review and Sign Contract
Upon the completion of the questionnaire, I will draw up a contract outlining the project and what everything that the entire project will entail.
Step Three: Down Payment Due
Once the contract is approved and signed, I will send you an invoice for the down payment on the project. I require 50% down before the project begins and the rest will be due upon project completion.
Step Four: Welcome Email
Lastly, I will send you a welcome email. This email will include the using Asana the project management tool I use for projects, you will be added to the project via email. Downloading Asana is not required since you will be able to reply to project messages through your email but it is helpful to see the project. I recommend downloading the app for better communication.
Step One: Website Content and Copy
Together, we will go over any needed content and copy for the site. In this step, you will provide the content you wish for your website, such as photos and text you want to use. In addition, I will also pick out any photos that are needed for the website design.
Step Two: Domain and Hosting Setup
During this step, you will set up your domain and hosting services. Bluehost it is what I use for my website. Also, I recommend any of the other official WordPress hosting providers such as Siteground and Dreamhost.
