What will be the purpose of your website?

Do you have a logo or branding?

Your website needs to be properly branded with your company logo. If you do not have a logo, we can assist in developing one at a reasonable investment that fits your needs. If you do have a logo, make sure you have a copy in the appropriate digital format (i.e. high-resolution psd, eps, pdf). In addition, you may want to collect existing marketing collateral (i.e. brochures, business cards) that you already have for us to review. Standard Text graphic logo is included as part of your website. Custom high resolution graphic logos start at $125 per design proposal.

What type of pictures or graphics would I like included on my website?

Do you have professional graphics or images that you would like included in your website? If so, make sure you have them in the appropriate file format. Decided where you would like these images or graphics and label them with the respective page you would like them to appear. If you do not have images or graphics you would like us to use, we can assist you in custom graphic development, photography services on an hourly basis. Another alternative are royalty-free stock images for website usage. These range around $5 – $25 per image. Higher resolution versions cost more but they can also be re-used for printing and advertizing purposes.

Do I have content for my website?

Have you already written content and marketing text ready for your website? If so, put it together in a word document complete with labels identifying the pages you would like it to appear on. If you do not have any content for your website, we can assist you in developing and creating website copy content at an hourly rate.

Copy proofing existing text content starts at $15 per 250 word page.

I am ready – now what? Here are the steps…

Step 1coming soon

Once the domain name is chosen, the hosting service will be registered, installed and configured with all the software to support your website.  The domain name will be registered for you at this point with the registration usually taking around 48 hours to be completed.

Within the first week of starting your website, you will usually have a domain name and a “Coming soon” splash page ready online. You can request for an additional email registration feature to be added to your splash page so that you can begin your email lead gathering effort while the website is under construction.

Step 2Installation step

Based on your preferences and requirements, research will be conducted with a couple of suggested theme options for your website. Keep in mind, the themes are for demonstrations only and do not come with any graphics, contents or all of the features shown. Ensure that all of the capabilities and design preferences you would like are available at this stage. Adding additional unplanned changes may not always be possible later and may require additional hourly billing in customized programming.

Once your text and graphic contents have been received, a master word document will be created online showing where the text copy and images will be for the individual pages. This document will be used to help you visualize your contents and for final text proofing and approval. When making any changes to your text, please use this document online so that the updates and latest changes can be tracked.

Step 3Go live icon

Once the document have been approved and finalized, the software and the content will be merged with your final website online – usually this will require at least one to two weeks. Depending on the complexity of your website, an additional week of final testing of the features, performance and browser support may be required. We are now ready to go live at this point.

A date for your website to go live will be decided on at your convenience. The balance of your invoice will be required prior to publishing your website online. Once received, the website will be published online after the live date. Please note that initially the site might be slow to view the first few time. This is normal as your new website will be propagating around the world over the next 72 hours. If the site fails or goes offline for any reason, don’t worry. We provide a month (30 Days) of free limited support for any failures or emergency technical problems (not including revision updates) with your website and resolve any major issues with your hosting company on your behalf.
