Web Design FAQ

How do I get started?

Start the conversation

The first step is to get to know each other so tell us about your project needs. Our team will review your information and be in touch within 24 to 48 hours. We may need to know more about your current challenges and goals.

Project Review

We'll review your answers to see if there's a good fit. It's important to us that you've taken time to identify SMART goals, allocate a budget, and have a reasonable timeline planned so we can bring your project to success.

In case we're not the ideal solution for your project, we're happy to refer you to one of our trusted partners that may be able to help with your problem.

Strategy Call

If everything looks good, we'll invite you to schedule about a 45-minute video conference to get to know each other and learn more about your current challenges and needs. Be sure one or two decisions makers of your team can join us. The cost for this is strategy session is $250 and we'll provide an invoice prior to scheduling the call.

Recommendations & Considerations

After our conference call, we'll provide a document that has recommendations for a potential solution to your project. We will recap our call conversation by identifying your challenges, goals, technology considerations, ideal partners, and any important resources that we believe will help you along the way to bring your project to success.

You can either work with us or take our recommendations to another vendor. It's your choice and we're just happy to help you get started in a direction to achieve your goals. 

Proposal

If you feel like we're the ideal partner for your project, we'll provide a proposal that's specific to your needs that includes the project goals, audience objectives, work scope, investment, and timeline. Once you've accepted our proposal, we'll send you an invoice for an initial deposit to secure us for the project. As an extra perk, we'll also credit back the initial strategy call. 

Onboarding

After we've received the deposit, we'll invite your team onto our project management tool, Basecamp. We'll use it for tracking conversations, to-dos, and overall delivery of the project.

Home page kick-off

Then we'll coordinate a kick-off call to collaborate on the Home page design for your new website. We'll review your worksheet answers and inspiration sites to determine art direction and content strategy that will achieve your goals.

How long does it take to redesign our website?

A custom website takes a minimum of four to five months to complete. We design and build the new site from scratch based on your goals and audience objectives defined in our website worksheet.

We usually spend two months on design and up to two months (based on complexity) to code and develop the website so it's easy for you to use. Websites that need more functionality take six months to eight months but it's well worth it when you have a website that fits and grows with your specific needs.

What’s your process for redesigning a website?

Check out our website redesign process page for how we make the magic happen.

How do we pay for our website?

For websites, we require a 15% to 25% deposit of the total budget that’s been allocated for your project. Once we receive this payment along with your signed project agreement, we’ll coordinate a kick-off call on Basecamp with your team.

Invoices are emailed on the 1st of during the estimated duration of your project as a monthly retainer. Payments are due within 15 days of receipt.

You'll receive late payment reminders one, three, and five days later. We may add a 2% late fee so it's important to pay your invoices in a timely manner. We accept credit cards using Stripe and checks.

On smaller projects like graphic design or logo design, we require a 50% deposit to begin the work. Once everything is completed, we’ll email you an invoice for the remaining payment which will be due 15 days later.

What's special about WordPress for a website?

WordPress is open source content management software and currently powers over 32% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and continues to grow. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customizable websites to modern standards and observes web development best practices. The community of web developers that use WordPress allows us to tap into this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project.

Where should we host our WordPress website?

We recommend that your website be hosted with a reputable company that specializes in WordPress hosting. The two top industry leaders are WP Engine and Flywheel. They offer plans that include very strong security protocols with staging servers.

What happens after our website is launched?

After a website launch, we provide 15 days of free support. We’ll make sure the software and plugins are updated and will fix anything that isn’t working properly on your website that is considered a WordPress bug.

To continue receiving support for your website after this initial period ends, you’ll need to purchase one of our WordPress Care Plans. Our plans ensure your website is always online, secure, and updated for the best performance.
