Depending on your requirements, this might vary slightly, but for the most part this is how the process will go.
I understand what your business is, what you need from a website and your expectations. We can either chat over phone & Skype or just email & text if you’d prefer. If you have websites you’d like me to take inspiration from, this is the time to share those.
At this stage we start to finalise what is you need and overall look and feel of the site. I fully understand that exact features (either front or backend) might not be clear until you have a tangible website to play with, but it’s important to get a grasp on the majority.
We agree pricing, sign a contract and I take 50% deposit. I then create the ‘first draft’ of the site offline (this allows me to work quicker). At this point I will ask you to sign up for a hosting account. I will guide you through the process (it’s really easy), but I think it’s important that you have full ownership and access to the site once I’ve delivered it.
I transfer the first draft to your new hosting for review. Once you’re happy we’re on the right lines, I’ll crack on and build the rest. I leave placeholder text throughout the website and will either guide you through how to edit and update this, or I can input it for you.
Your new website is complete! I allow for revisions throughout and don’t have a cap or anything on that. It’s important we have an end product that we’re both happy with and genuinely proud of.
