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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Final payment is always due before we take the website live on your domain.
All necessary website files and scripts are copied to your domain and databases are setup.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
