Web Design Process
What to expect from start to launch.
Through a meeting and/or phone conversation we help determine the scope of your website project. It is helpful to have your existing website or rough draft content on hand for reference, as well as a few examples of website designs that you like.
We send a proposal that outlines the cost and what is included based on what we discussed in the discovery phase. The proposal will also list optional services such as domain registration, web hosting, and social media setup. Proposals are typically presented as a fixed cost for the project.
Once the proposal is signed we create your JellyFlea account and bill for the deposit. The remaining is due prior to launch or after 3 months, whichever comes first per the Terms of Service.
Once the deposit and initial materials are received, we get started on the website design. Using our staging server we'll install WordPress, create the menu structure, enter content, and work on the design. It usually takes about 2 weeks before presenting the initial draft.
Initial Review & Revisions
We then send a recorded screencast to show what the website looks like, highlight features, demonstrate how it looks on a mobile devices, and offer suggestions and talking points to start the review process. We also send a link to the development website so you can test drive your new website for yourself.
After reviewing the website, you can compile feedback and additional materials and send them over to JellyFlea for implementation. Of course, we're available to chat if some ideas need to be discussed at length.
Final Review & Revisions
Once JellyFlea has completed the initial revisions, you'll have another opportunity to review and submit any final updates.
We perform initial SEO and other behind the scenes tweaks to prep your website for launch.
Once final payment is received and you give us the green light, we move your website from development to production! We then submit your website to Google, setup analytics, and provide your account login information.
We understand that keeping your website updated is important, and we love supporting the websites we created. If any changes or maintenance is needed after the launch of your website, we are available for an hourly rate of $75/hr with a quarter hour minimum.
