The Process

My process includes 4 steps for every site whether it's a re-design or new site:

1) Research & Planning. We work together as a team to discover your needs and goals in having an online presence. Time is spent researching your target market, deciding what content is key and necessary to include, and on the architecture and site map.

Content is gathered and that, along with the research, provides a digital strategy to base the design upon, which in turn creates a positive user experience.

Surprisingly to a lot of people, this is usually the longest step, but an important one. This is your foundations and it should be a strong one.

2) Design. A wireframe layout is developed along with a logo and branding if needed. The overall design is decided upon with the help of visual mood boards which include color choices, fonts, and graphics. This is where we will consult and touch base regularly. And at the end of this phase you will have an exact mockup prototype of your website.

3) Coding This would either be a HTML/CSS build or a custom WordPress theme build with the WordPress install. All projects are completely responsive giving them 100% device compatibility. Cross browser testing is done, and a beta site is provided for review and approval.

4) Going Live & Further Launching a website is an exciting phase, however there are still a lot of tasks involved to have it go smoothly. Further user testing is done, and possibly a site migration and a domain name redirect.

WordPress backend training is provided if needed, and Google Analytics is set up to monitor site traffic. Further ongoing maintenance and/or search engine optimization may also be considered.

Monthly Maintenance Options

Now that you have a website, you might find yourself in need of routine updating or maintenance on an hourly basis. This can include adding or editing content (text, pictures, or multimedia), monitoring Google Analytics and making keyword changes, adding a HTML page, or WordPress updating.

We offer both a pay-as-you-go service, and fixed monthly maintenance packages to fit your specific needs. If you require something more customized please contact me and we can work out a tailored maintenance package.

  • Pay-as-you-go Maintenance

    Ideal for irregular, low-priority updates. Simply email me with a list of requested changes and you will be charged an hourly rate. A minimum charge of one hour will be applied and after the initial hour fees will be billed in 15 minute increments. Please contact me for current rates.

  • Monthly Maintenance Packages

    Need more regular higher priority changes? Save money by purchasing a monthly maintenance package. Most changes will be made within 48 hours. Larger requests could require more time but will still be given priority. You have the option of purchasing packages as a 6 or 12 month contract. Packages must be purchased in full prior to use.

  • Option 1

    Up to 2 hours / month

  • Option 2

    Up to 5 hours / month

  • Option 3

    Up to 10 hours / month

What happens if I buy a package and don't use all my hours that month?

Unused hours can be banked and rolled into the following month until the end of the contract term. All unused hours are void at the end of the contract period.
