How it works

WEBSITE DESIGN PROCESS

First, do you have a logo for your business yet?

Yes, I have a logo already.

Great. Lets get to work!

Here are the steps to creating an AMAZING website.

Keep in mind that a successful project thrives from a great partnership between a designer and a client.
You will have homework to do. I’ve coloured them in teal.

No, I don’t have a logo yet.

No problem.

Let’s work together an look at branding options before we jump into designing your website.

Testing, Review and Launch

Congratulations!
You’ve just finished your website and you’re ready to show it to the world!
This is a huge undertaking and an exciting step in any business’ journey!

Updates & Maintenance

Updates

Most of my packages included a one-hour in-person (or virtual) training session to teach the client how to make changes to the website’s content.

Maintenance

“Websites are Like Cars”
It’s a major responsibility to maintain a website after it’s been launched.

Theme updates, plug-in conflict, backups, security check, website performance, analytic review, SEO checklist… Whether you want to this on your own or need some backing, lets discuss your options and review what will work best for you.

Congratulations! You are all set.
