Over a third of the internet can’t be wrong. Sure, there are some businesses that need a custom website coded line-by-line by the worlds best HTML novelists. But we’re guessing you don’t. What you need is an amazing website that brings you more business. You need to tell your story, not prove that you’ve got the world’s most intricate custom code.
We design websites that can be hosted virtually anywhere, and can be updated by almost anyone. Your custom website should be part of your marketing symphony, playing its part amongst all of your other social and digital campaigns.
Developing a plan
The first thing we do is sit down with decision makers to develop a plan for your website. We’ll talk about your goals for the website; what objectives you have, how you convert your clients, how customers might interact with your website and what you need them to see and do. We’ll talk about forms, plugins, and your other marketing efforts to help us build a framework for what pages are needed. You do not need to come prepared for this meeting with content (text, photos, etc). We’ll just talk about what should be included and how you want it to work for your business. After this meeting, you'll have a plan for the content you need to gather or produce.
Almost ready to go
We’ll submit a sitemap, style guide, and some examples for what we’ll be building for you. Once we’re both in agreement that we’re ready to build, we’ll get you on the schedule for your build days.
Lets Make This Happen - It’s your build day(s).
We typically schedule these days around the days we know that the decision makers at your business will be available. We’ll be checking in throughout the process, and we want to make sure that you can quickly make decisions as we’re moving VERY fast at this point. Any delays in decision making can impact your final completion time, and can also increase your final cost. Changes to the sitemap, content or objectives at this point can also increase cost and delay your final launch date.
The ball is in your court
The site will be considered finished, but we know there is always the chance that you might want to swap out a picture, or maybe change some of the wording now that you’re seeing it on your site. That’s OK! We want you to be thrilled with your final product, so take some time to really comb over your site to make sure that it’s exactly what you want before we go live. During this time while we’re waiting for your feedback, we’re also doing the backend legwork that is needed for successful search engine optimization. Depending on what level of initial (or ongoing) Search Engine Marketing you’ve contracted us to do, this is where we do it.

It’s your new website! We’ll launch your website and connect you with our training materials for you to take it over (or don’t worry about it if you’re signing up for one of our web maintenance packages). We’re always around for updates and upgrades if you need us!
