Proposal / The Nitty-Gritty
Want to Proceed?
Design / Development
Here’s where the magic happens. In a few weeks (typically 2-6 weeks, depending on the size of your project) you will be sent a link to the first draft of the website and we will communicate about what changes need to be made. This interative process will take us all the way to the completion of the new website. Once you give your final approval, the site goes live!
Revisions ("Just one more thing..")
Video Tutorials ("But how do I create a Blog post?")
Maintenance ("What happens now?")
Now that your website has been live for two weeks or more, any updates to the site can be accomplished in one of two ways: (1) You are given a userid and password and you can make the changes yourself, or (2) You send the updated to us and we make them at the standard hourly Maintenance Rate. We bill in quarter-hour increments, so your bill is always an accurate reflection of the actual time spent updating your website. You’ll receive a bill at the end of the month for all updates made to the site in that month. We do recommend that you try to collect and send us multiple tasks at once rather than one task every time you think of something, since the minimum billable charge for one individual task is .25 hours, but if sent at once we can usually do a few tasks in the same timeframe.
Search Engine Optimization ("Is my site on Page 1 of Google yet?")
This is perhaps the most common question clients ask about their new website. Although your site should appear for a search of your company name and location, it probably won’t appear on Page 1 for a search of more generic (and competitive) keywords that your potential customers might be searching on. This is because it’s brand new, and has to gain a reputation in Google’s eyes as a valuable resource in your niche market before Google will rank it above existing, older websites. The way to accomplish this is with a specific Organic SEO Campaign. We’ll need to have a conversation to identify the important keywords in your market, and the geographical footprint you want to cover. With those two pieces of information, we do our due diligence to analyze the search results and produce an SEO Campaign Proposal to get your site ranked well in the major search engines. SEO contracts are 12-month comittments, after which time it changes to a 30-day, month-to-month format. If you need to rank well against your competitors, ask us for a quote for SEO Services.
Other Services ("Oh by the way...")
Now’s probably a good time to mention that we offer other services. Need a new business card, brochure or postcard? We can handle that. How about a new custom Facebook banner to match your website, or a Twitter banner? We can customize your Social media profiles to match your branding and give you a consistent visual landscape across the web. Looking for someone to setup and manage a Google Adwords campaign or a Facebook ad? Guess what, we can do that too. Just consider us your one-stop-shop for all these needs and more!
