No-Stress Responsive Website DevelopmenT

Delight your clients with an easy to use custom website!

You do what you love most, designing beautiful smart websites. And I’ll take all the hard and overlooked techy details off your plate.

This is more than just a site build. It’s a partnership and I want you to be just as happy as your client. I have years of designing, site building and project planning under my belt. And one of my sweet spots in never missing deadlines and avoiding scope creep.

Together we’re going to wow your clients!

What's in my go-to toolbox

The Simple Site Build Includes:

  • 4 Foundational Website Pages: Home, About, Service, Contact
  • Behind The Scenes But Essential Pages: 404, Privacy, Terms and Conditions
  • Client Friendly Backend: I build all my sites so that your client feels ease and not overwhelm once they're on their own.
  • List Building Integration: Also includes styled form & Thank You Page
  • Standard Social Media Integration: *Custom social features and feeds many increase cost
  • Cookies Consent Bar: If your client is collecting email address or using google analytics they will need this for proper compliance.
  • Google Analytics Integration: All your client needs to do is set up their account and send the tracking code
  • Basic SEO Set Up: Using the industry standard SEO plugin I'll get your client set up with and SEO sitemap & breadcrumbs. I leave the keywords, meta data and other SEO details to the pros!
  • Security Set Up: Don't let your clients out the digital door without a secure site. If your client is not on Flywheel we'll help them purchase the right security for their site.
  • Speed Optimization: Site images and code will be optimized for faster page load times.
  • Tutorials: Your client will have how-to videos so they can use their new site with confidence.
  • After Launch Support: After the site goes live, you'll have 2 weeks of email, tech and tutorial support from me. Any tech tweaks or clarity on how to use the site are included. i.e.broken links or "how do I edit xyz". Not included without a fee (but happy to help!): changes or additions on approved pages, hacked sites or fixes on client mistakes.

What The Process Looks like:

1. 🏁Getting Started & Project Estimates

You’ll kick things off by filling out my inquiry form that gives me some details about your upcoming project. And I’ll get back to you with an estimate including time and cost for development.

2. ✨ We’ll make make our partnership official

Once we’ve ironed out the details and we know we’d make a good team. I’ll send over an agreement and invoice for a non-refundable deposit of $500. The deposit reserves a start date and covers technical consulting, during your planning process.

Once the agreement is signed and deposit is paid consider me your developer! You’ll then receive a welcome email that gets us set up to work together.

**Because I know scope may shift once you dive into a project, if you need to adjust the timeline we can move your start date once.

3. 📓 Project Planning (recommended on a site over 4 pages)

Having an in-depth planning phase before visual design begins is critical. Proper planning has spared me losing time & money, having hard conversations and scope creep over and over again.

With planning we know exactly what we need to design and build a successful site. Plus expectations on both sides are set from the very beginning. And we’ll have a launch that makes everyone happy! 

During any site planning I’m available for technical consulting. Things like “can we do this to stay in budget” or “we need a tool that does this and this” etc. I’m here to take care of you both to make sure once we start development it’s smooth sailing!

5. 💻 Getting prepared for site development

I have created a Google Sheet for us called: Site Inventory. This Site Inventory will have everything that I’ll need to build the site in the most efficient way. This also keeps budget increases & missed deadlines under-control.

**The Site Inventory will need to be complete before our start date. If it’s not there will be a reschedule fee.

A glance at what’s inside:

  • Design and Development: This is where a majority of what I need lives (design files, content, etc.)
  • Accounts, License & Logins
  • Technical Tool Recommendations

This will be a living doc that we’ll update during development as well.

6. 🎉 Let’s get this website online!

Now that we have all the ingredients for website success. I’ll hit the ground running and bring your beautiful website to life. We’ll use slack for real-time interactions. I’ll be following the development schedule and be giving you updates and reviews as I move along with the site. After the site goes and we’ve done are quality checks, I’ll be with you for 2 weeks after launch.

 

All development projects start with the simple site build as a foundation. If you project is bigger and requires more pages or functionality a custom proposal can be created for you!

Simple site builds start at $2,200
