  8. Internet Advertising and Marketing

1) Planning

If you have not already done so, you will want to take some time to think about what you wish to accomplish with your new website. Determine if you will need any special functionality or interactivity with your visitors; consider the type of design style which appeals to you and then be sure to let us know. When you are ready, please complete the quote form.

We will try to gain a clearer understanding of where your business is currently and the requirements of the application or service that you would like us to provide.

Using the information obtained from the quote form and subsequent discussions, we create a price quote and project time lines. Within the quote we will list the requirements of the project, proposed solution to fulfill each requirement and the cost of developing that solution. This method of breaking the overall application down into its component parts, allows us to better adjust project costs to meet any budget restrictions.

This will also detail the list of items which will be needed from you over the course of development.

Website Development Contract

Once we have agreement upon on project details, we will prepare a website development contract for you to review, sign and send back with your deposit.

Initial Deposit

The signed contract and 50% deposit is required before we schedule a time slot for your project. The remainder of your balance will be due upon project completion. Once we have received your 50% deposit and signed contract, we will provide you with a project start date. All projects are scheduled on a “first come, first served” basis.

 

2) Development

You will need to let us know the navigation links you would like (such as home, about us, services, etc) and supply all text and/or product information to be included on your site. In addition, you may also supply material such as company logo, personal photos, etc, if desired.

If you have any guide sites you would like us to refer to when designing your site or if you have any preference as to colors, style, etc please offer that information as well.

For E-Commerce sites that require us to enter products for you, we will need you to supply an Excel spread sheet listing the following: Product Name, Unique Product ID Number (if any), Product Description, Options (if any – size, color, etc), Price, Approximate Weight, Number in Stock, as well as the product photos named in correspondence with the Product ID Number on the spread sheet.

Once the above has been received a 'visual proof' will be prepared. Upon reviewing the design, we will continue to make modifications until the final desired look is achieved.

Coding

Once you have 'signed-off' and approved the visual, we get to work on the construction of the site including, programming and code, navigation, site map, site content and css style sheets.

Testing

The testing phases involves us checking and rechecking our own work to make sure everything works as it should, including browser compatibility, grammar and spell check, dead link check, form and programming functionality.

You will then 'sign-off' on the project to confirm that it has been completed to the specifications.

 

3) Launch

Final Payment

Final payment is always due before we take the website live on your domain.

Launch Website

All necessary website files and scripts are copied to your domain and databases are setup.

Error Testing

After the website is live, any interactive programming and scripts are tested to verify proper function. Since the design and testing phase often occurs on a different server, it is very important to once again verify that everything is working correctly after taking the website live.

 

4) Completion

Minor adjustments to the website are included at no charge for up to two weeks after the website has launched (maximum of up to 3 hours labor). Minor changes include adding changing text, adding or changing photos, etc. Any major revision requests may incur a fee.

 

5) Support And Maintenance

We don’t view your business as a 'one off' transaction, we like to view you as a client with whom we have a relationship with. In order to help our relationship grow, we will check back in on you from time to time to see how things are going. Likewise, we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

If you need programming or design changes, we will always be there to service your needs. Routine updates are charged at $50 per hour. We bill by the minute and do not round up to the nearest half hour or hour.

 

6) Search Engine Optimization

We automatically incorporate the basic meta tags into the design of your website, but researching your keywords to specifically focus on your target market and include in your meta tags, will take your search engine visibility to the next level.

After construction is complete, we will analyze your keyword competition for your selected keyword phrases. Every website’s needs are different, but with our experience we have put together a selection of search engine optimization packages that are sure to fit your needs.

 

7) Search Engine Submission

After search engine optimization, your website is then ready for professional submission to the search engines and directories. Hand submission and automated search engine submission occurs after testing and optimization.

 

8) Internet Advertising And Marketing

Once your website has been optimized for the search engines, we offer a range of off-site internet marketing and advertising techniques that will boost your domains profile driving increased visitors to your website.
