Communication

  • I listen carefully to your wants and needs
  • I work with you, and together we design your website
  • I translate the "technical talk" into a language you’ll understand
  • I touch base frequently so you always know what's happening and where the project stands

Process

  1. Initial chat
    • We chat on the phone or exchange e-mails so I can get an overview of your business, your ideas, and your needs.
  2. Follow-up
    • We have a follow-up phone call or we meet in person so I can ask more questions and get more details.
  3. Project Proposal
    • I put together a Project Proposal which defines the scope and specifications of the project (website style, page mockups, navigation, pages, features, functionality, pricing, payments, etc).
    • Initially, the Project Proposal is a "working document" that we work on together - adding, changing, and rearranging until we're both satisifed with the content.
    • Once the Project Proposal is finalized, we both sign and date and keep a copy for our records. Creating a finalized Project Proposal can take anywhere from several days to several weeks depending on the complexity of the project.
    • The beauty of having a Project Proposal is that we both know where we're headed, what's included, what's not included, and the total price, before work is started.
  4. Payments
    • I charge an up-front fee for the Project Proposal. The fee ranges from 10%-25% of the total project price. The fee is, in effect, a "down payment" and it is credited against the total project price.
    • For the balance of the project price, we agree on a payment schedule which includes amounts and due dates (included in the Project Proposal).
    • I accept cash, check, or PayPal.
  5. We start work on the project
    • I say "we" because building a website is truly a joint effort - you know your business and I know how to build a website.
    • As work proceeds, I need frequent input and feedback from you to make sure we're headed in the right direction. I'll also need you to do other things like signing up for a hosting account or a payment processor account, or supplying me with page text content and/or digital files.
    • If we're building an e-commerce website, you may elect to do all of your own data entry, a process that can be very time-consuming and have a significant learning curve.
    • In short - you'll need to invest a fair amount of your time in the project in order for it to be successful and for it to be completed on time.
  6. Project "sign-offs"
    • As certain phases of the project are completed, there may be project "sign-offs". A "sign-off" is simply an agreement between us that a certain phase of the project is completed (for example, the graphic design and layout of a page header). Once a signoff is agreed to, any later changes to that phase may result in an additional fee.
    • Project "sign-offs" are standard operating procedure employed by many professional web designers in order to keep the project on schedule and under control.
  7. Project communication
    • Communication is a key element to any successful website project.
    • I'm online all day long, working on multiple projects at any given time. So, for me the most efficient way to work is to communicate with my clients via e-mail throughout the day.
    • Of course, some things must be discussed on the phone or face to face. When that's necessary we will schedule a time to meet.
    • I respond to all voice messages within 24 hours
  8. Project completion
    • When the project is completed we can both enjoy the "fruits of our labor".
    • Having said that, with websites change is inevitable and ongoing - there's almost always something else to be done. So, I hope my business relationship with you will be ongoing as well!
