Here's a basic overview of how you can get started with a new website:
Step 1: Short Questionnaire
In order to provide you a mockup of your website, I'll need you to fill in a quick questionnaire (should only take a few minutes to complete). This initial questionnaire provides me a basic overview of your business so that I can design a relevant mockup.
Step 2: Free Mockup
I'll design your free homepage mockup. This will give you an insight to how your final site will look. I'll also give you an overview of what I can do for you in terms of generating traffic, leads and sales with your new site.
Step 3: A quick call
(Optional) We can have a chat over the phone if you have any questions regarding my service or the process - This doesn't have to be the third step.. you can contact me whenever you need to.
Step 4: Full Questionnaire
For the development of your website, I'll need to learn about your business and the functionality and features you require. This questionnaire goes into more detail than the first and allows me to establish a structure for the design which will be optimized for your goals and direction.
Step 5: Scope & deliverables
I'll set out a project scope and deliverables. At this point, I'll give you an accurate final quote for development and we'll sign contracts (and NDAs if required)
Step 6: Wireframing
Before beginning the actual development, I'll design the structure and layout of your website as a wireframe. This is an important stage as it ensures your site will have a logical UI (user interface).
Step 7: Site development
At this stage, I'll begin developing your website - first the backend (hosting and server side things) and then the frontend (the visual side which you see on your browser).
Step 8: Content & SEO
I'll ensure that your website is completely optimized for the search engines (Google, Bing etc). I'll also add in any written content here.
Step 9: Setting live
Your website will be set live and submitted for indexing in search engines.
Step 10: Maintenance & support
With your new site, you'll get 6 months free on my monthly maintenance and hosting package, which includes:
Basic ongoing SEO optimizations, fast hosting, unlimited design changes, complete website maintenance and priority support.
If you're running your own ads or conducting SEO yourself, I'll provide free consultation on your strategy.
