1. book your project +
After our consult call, I’ll send over a detailed proposal covering the scope of the project, a contract, payment plan and first invoice. Once the contract is signed and deposit is paid you’ll be officially booked on my calendar.
2. development +
When your design files are ready, we’ll jump on a quick call to go over each page and any functionality details. I’ll then start developing your custom theme on our private server (no interruptions to the current site). Once the demo site is ready, you’ll be able to review it before sending the test link over to your client for final approval.
3. launch +
After the demo site has been approved and the final invoice is paid, we’ll transfer the new theme to your client’s domain on our scheduled launch date. During the install, we’ll put up a simple “coming soon page” if needed. When the install is complete, we’ll send over a personalized video walking through the new site with directions on how to use it and make changes.
4. ongoing support +
Once launched, you’ll receive 2 weeks of free technical support to ensure everything is running smoothly. Your client will be eligible for our Monthly Maintenance Plan.
Frequently asked questions
We provide a custom quote for each development project that depends on the project’s scope. Typically, this cost falls in the $2k-$4k range.
Development projects typically take around 4-6 weeks. Factors that could put your project on the longer side are:
- A very large or complex website
- Lack of communication and/or feedback
- Additions to the project scope (ex. adding more pages or making major design changes after coding is complete)
Yes! Self-hosted WordPress requires that you rent the space in which your website will live (host) and give it a unique address (domain). I recommend SiteGround* as your WordPress host. They have affordable rates, quick speeds and awesome customer service. Your domain will cost you about $10 a year. Hosting will cost an average of $150 a year.
Check out my tutorial on how to set up your domain and hosting with SiteGround.
I don’t claim to be an SEO expert, but I will consult with you on some SEO best practices and how to implement them on your site. I will also install a wonderful SEO plugin and provide an in depth tutorial on how to use it.
Support is provided at no additional cost for the 2 weeks following your site’s launch. Afterward, you may purchase a Monthly Maintenance Plan to keep your site updated, backed up and secure. A limited number of Content Design Retainer spots are also available upon request if you need some extra help making regular updates to your site.
All of my communication will be with you including things like payments and contracts.
I can work with Illustrator (.ai) or XD (.xd) files. I ask that your design mockups are detailed and organized so I’m able to understand the functionality of the site. I also recommend you send separate mockups for mobile versions (tablet and smartphone). If separate mockups are not included I will develop the mobile version as I see fit.
