3. WordPress Login

An administrator login to your current WordPress site (if you have one).

Google Drive

Google Drive is an amazing platform that allows us to communicate with you about your project. You can use your Google Drive storage to upload all logos, images, videos, content, etc. for your website. It also allows us to be alerted whenever you make any changes to a document; this is great if it needs our attention. We will create a Google Gmail (email) specifically for your project and this will be sent to you with instructions on how to get started with your Google Drive account. If you need additional help, please contact support.

The Design Process

Designing a website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process that can be overwhelming. To better help you understand what we expect during the design and development process, here is an outline of the steps involved.

1. Layout & Design

A large and time consuming part of designing a website is the planning and layout stage of the process. We will create a sitemap (page/menu hierarchy) of the website for approval first, then we will design the home page and sub page(s) for. If you are happy, we will move to the next stage.

2. Development

Once the site layout and design is approved, we will move forward with the designing of the entire site, add functionality, contact forms, and plugins. We will make sure your site looks great and functions correctly across all devices and web browsers before moving to the final step.

3. Edits & Revisions

Once the site is ready for final review, you'll be able to browse each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is revised completely. We ask that you review ALL pages to make sure spelling, grammar, addresses, and information is correct before we set your website to 'live' on the web.

Wrapping Up & Going Live

Once the site is ready to go live, all unnecessary plugins, pages, images and backend files will be removed. The new site will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need to be restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to show on some devices. Some computers will need to be refreshed in order to see the new site, although in most cases, the site will show immediately depending on the WiFi connection and where you are geographically compared to the server where your website is hosted.

Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you via Google Drive or secure email ensuring the security of your passwords. Though your logins and passwords will be saved by me locally, PLEASE SAVE ALL LOGINS FOR YOUR RECORDS AS WELL. Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to my “moving forward” page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website and also information on our Maintenance/Security Plan which I highly recommend for all my clients.
