How does the whole process look?
We’ll start our relationship with a 30-minute discovery call to discuss your business goals. I love to hear about where a business has been and where it’s going! You’ll also have the opportunity to ask me questions and confirm we make a great team (If not, you’ll get a full refund). Please note discovery calls are scheduled on Thursdays. We’ll discuss enough details to get your website started on the following Monday. If you’re not entirely ready we’ll schedule your project for a future date. I request all content and photos before I begin on your website to ensure you get the most of your 2 revisions. We’ll finalize any revisions to the test website and launch 5 business days later.
How can this be so cheap?
This is a very streamlined process that takes shape lightning fast. This service is for you if you are clear on the purpose of your website (there’s no time to change your mind on messaging), available for approvals throughout the process, and trust that the features put in place are designed to work (they are!). This service also only provides 4 unique pages: Home, About, Contact and your choice of a Service page or a Blog. This is typically the perfect amount of pages for entrepreneurs and small businesses. If you’re looking for something bigger or more custom, please feel free to contact me.
What software will you use?
Your website will be created with WordPress. WordPress is an extremely flexible platform that allows for custom functionality. My pre-coded framework (that cuts down your cost) is lightweight, streamlined and optimized for search engines.
Are there any extra costs?
You will need to have a domain name and hosting account. If you do not currently have these items, I can guide you through it.
Do you offer hosting services?
While I do not personally offer these services, hosting and domain support is included in your website project scope. I will gladly steer you in the right direction and after services are purchased, I will set up your account.
What do you need access to?
I will need access to your hosting account and ftp before we launch.
Will there be any downtime on my website?
Your new website will be created on a test server where we will finalize everything before moving it to your domain name. Moving a website can take 24-48 hours during which time some downtime may occur while the servers propagate.
Will you maintain the website?
Post-launch revisions and routine maintenance is not included in the process. Most software should be updated to avoid unexpected issues; If you’re not interested in regular maintenance, a minimum bi-annual update is recommended.
