I outline the process involved in creating your website, from first contact through to sign-off.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Your website reflects your values and vision. I adopt a highly inquisitive approach to consultancy, going beyond the standard line of questioning to go deeper and really understand what you do and what you want to achieve. I may offer alternative solutions or new solutions that you may not have yet considered.
At this stage, we discuss some technical aspects such as website hosting and email provision. Don’t worry – I make it easy.
I adopt a relaxed approach, and website design consultancy can occur via Zoom, phone call and email. We will exchange several communications during this stage. Initial conversations will take place via Zoom.
I send you some examples of themes and we discuss styling and functionality.
You will then create a hosting account on a free trial basis. I will later install your website using this account.
Send your content
Email one Word document per website page. I can refine your copy so you don’t need to get hung up on the accuracy of the content if you would prefer assistance.
Images need to be a minimum of 1200 pixels wide and preferably in landscape orientation. Images must be of high quality. I can assist you in obtaining suitable images if required.
Following research based on the consultancy stage, I get busy installing the WordPress framework on your web host server before installing the Genesis framework, an appropriate child theme and the relevant plugins.
For Ghost websites, I install and configure your chosen theme.
The build includes configuring all frameworks and plugins to ensure that your website can work as a singular entity. I then restructure the default output to create a website that is unique to you. This includes uploading your content, including images.
I send you a private login to your new website so that you can assess it and suggest any amendments as necessary.
The amendment phase typically takes between one and two weeks.
Sign-off happens only when you are delighted with your website. I issue the final invoice, and upon receipt of cleared funds, your website is published.
You will also receive a bespoke screencast showing you how to manage your website’s content, including a one-hour online training session via Zoom.
