HONESTY AND TRANSPARENCY

This has been and will always be our policy. We don’t like surprises so we don’t expect you to have them either. We believe in being up front with our pricing. We explain everything in non-techy terms, tell you what services we will provide, and let you know what the cost will be.

HOME OFFICE

We work out of our home office and with a remote team of talented professionals. Instead of having rent and staff expenses, we’re able to offer you a great value for the products we deliver and pass along the savings to you.

our website design process

We fine-tune our process as technology, trends, and the way people search for changes. We build your website with the best tools available for your business or organization. Here is the short version of our process. If you prefer to know all the nuts and bolts we use, visit our more in-depth process page.

Step 1: Get To Know You

This is the period where we work together to establish your website’s purpose and strategy. It is the most important step in the entire process for both parties – without a map, you don’t know how to get to your destination. We start off with a website questionnaire to gain a better understanding of your business, what you want the website to do for you, your ideal customer, likes/dislikes for websites, and problems you want to solve with your website.

Step 2: Home Page Mock-Up Design

This is the step where the design begins to come to life. First, we select a proper color scheme. The color palette is key since it’s one of the first visuals your website visitors see in their decision to dig deeper into your website or hit the back button and move on. Once the color scheme is identified, we then layout the elements for the home page which includes the header, the content above the fold, the content below the fold, and the footer.

Step 3: WordPress Installation

In this step, you’ll see the payoff of planning and organizing a well-executed mock-up design. We install the latest version of WordPress on either your domain or on our test server. We then install a theme and a website builder like Elementor Pro.  We then install and configure other WordPress plugins, a piece of software integrated with WordPress that adds or extends the functionality and adds new features to your website. The plugins we add to your website depends upon the types of services or products you offer.

Step 4: WordPress Plugin Installation

There are thousands of plugins available to add to your website, but having too many can slow down your website or cause it to crash. Just like a great musical conductor, it takes experience and practice to find the right ones that are essential, don’t slow down your website, or interfere with other plugins.

Step 5: Image and Search Engine Optimization

Once we have all your content and images we then optimize them for search engine friendliness. Ever notice some images on a website take a very long time to load on your browser? That is because the original image was never optimized. Based on your type of business or organization, your content, your target audience, and your website goals we look at the best keywords and phrases to use in your website. We use tools like Google’s Keywords Tool and Keywords Everywhere to discover the search volume and search terms that will work best for you.

Step 6: Website Creation

With all the essential elements in place, we then create your home page in WordPress. We add the text, images, videos, calls to action and other content we discussed in step 1. We check the design is responsive for desktop, tablet, and mobile phone viewing and then we send you the URL for your new home page for review.

Step 7: Website Testing

With all the essential elements in place, we then create your home page in WordPress. We add the text, images, videos, calls to action and other content we discussed in step 1. We check the design is responsive for desktop, tablet, and mobile phone viewing and then we send you the URL for your new home page for review.

Step 8: Website Review

At this point, we are ready to pass along our finished product for your inspection. This is your opportunity to notify us of any changes, corrections, or additions to the images, text, or other content on your website. We then make any modifications you request and ask you to review the website a final time.

Step 9: Website Launch

The most exciting step is here at last! After you make your final payment to us for the design and the WordPress Care Package plan we are ready to launch your website. We migrate the website from our test server to your website address. Once it is migrated, we double-check everything on your website is functionally properly and the responsive design displays properly. for desktops, tablets, and mobile versions.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I originally contacted Eric for 2 reasons; 1. I was frustrated with my prior “web guy”, and 2. His local contact phone #, because I prefer local people. Anyhow Eric was a pleasure from the start, I confess I’m a little quirky and he adapted to my style and needs with grace and diplomacy. He is always available and full of great experienced ideas THAT work! Recommend him 100%,
