Website Design Process

Each project can vary depending upon the added services but for the website design itself, the below process is followed:

A meeting is held to discuss the business brand, including the color scheme and style. The goals for the website and target audience are established and content is received. The agreement form and 50% deposit is due to start the project.

The designer then emails 1-3 suggested website layouts to the client.  The layouts showcase navigation, social media, maps and other option styles to choose from. Then the desired layout is selected by the client.

The designer provides input and assistance with the content provided to establish the branding and marketing strategy to connect with the target audience. The designer creates the design draft and sends the link to the client for review.

A phone meeting is held to review the website draft. The client then compiles a list of edits and submits them via email to the designer for completion. Once the edits are complete the designer will notify the client via email.

Once the website is approved, the final approval form and balance is due for the designer to publish the site live on the client’s domain. Then designer will create and submit a sitemap to Google and Bing to start the ranking process.

The designer can then provide training on how to make edits, if you opted for the WordPress or ecommerce website design package. If the client does not have the time or energy to edit the site, the designer could make any future edits as needed for an hourly maintenance fee. If you opted for the 1 page website design package then all edits would need to be completed by the designer for an hourly maintenance fee or with time from a prepaid maintenance package.
