WHAT I NEED
TO GET STARTED
PSD, AI, PDF, EPS, high-res JPEG or PNG if possible.
Your hosting account login and/or cPanel username and password.
An administrator login to your current WordPress site (if you have one up already).
Current and/or new images and pictures you’d like to use on the new site.
Page content and any updated verbiage/information for the site
Brand style guide, colors or any specific design requirements. If you do not have brand style guide, I can design one for you.
Dropbox is a great online image/file sharing platform. This isn’t necessary for every project, but if you have more than 15-20 images for your website or if they’re too big to send through email, Dropbox is essential. It can also be used to share important logins and credentials instead of sending through email. I will set up a folder for the project and will share the folder with you via email. You can upload all images and files there.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
A large and time consuming part of designing a website is in the planning and layout stage of the process. First, the sitemap creation (Page/Menu hierarchy) of the website for approval, then the home page design and a sub page (or more upon request) for approval.
Once the site layout and design is approved, we'll move forward with designing all site pages and implementing all functionality and plugins. Making sure your site looks awesome and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers before moving to the final step.
Once the site is ready for final review, you’ll be able to review each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is ready for launch. We ask that you please review ALL pages to make sure all spelling, grammar, addresses and information are correct before going live.
wrapping up & going live
Once the site is ready to go live, all unnecessary plugins, pages, images and back-end files will be removed. The new site will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to pull up on some devices. Your browser may need to be refreshed in order to see the new site and though most will see the new site fairly quickly after the launch.
Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you via secure email ensuring the security of your passwords. Though your logins and passwords will be saved by us locally, PLEASE SAVE ALL LOGINS FOR YOUR RECORDS AS WELL. Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to my “Follow Up Questionnaire” where you’ll be asked about your experience with us. We will also be sending you information on our Maintenance/Security Plans which I highly recommend for all my clients.
