How do we actually do this?
The first stage obviously begins when you approach us for help. At this point it is important that you have your own domain name. These can be purchased at www.siteground.com. These are a very trustworthy hosting company. You are then in possession of your own name, which is the simplest way to do this.
Once you have a domain name, we can discuss your ideas for your site. This is often done, in person, over the phone or by completing a questionnaire. Some things to consider are:
Do you need a simple brochure website? Or is an e-commerce site more suitable?
How many pages will you need? Do you want a blog page?
What colours or design aspects do you favour? I can advise on this if you are unsure.
I can help with fonts and colours and stock images, but you can of course add your own images. Ensure these are of a professional quality and either jpeg or png format.
I will also need contact details, price lists, testimonials, any background information or any social media links you want included.
The information you give me will inform my quote, but please do take a look at our 3 price packages .
Home page and deposit
I will take your ideas and create a home page for you. I generally write all the copy for my websites myself, but if there is anything specific that you would like added, we can do that too. The home page is our starting point and gives you the opportunity to say whether you are happy and we can make any adjustments. This is a very organic process and I am happy to make alterations at this point to ensure we have the same vision in mind.
At this point I will ask for a 25% deposit towards the cost of the site. I offer FREE hosting for the first year , so there will be no additional costs
Full Design and Final Review
We will then review the finished site and you will have your opportunity to make any adjustments before the site goes live. Once you are happy, I will ask you to sign off on the site and I will require the payment in full.
All my sites come Fully responsive as standard. They function beautifully on all formats, phones, tablets and PCs.
