Ever visit a new website and feel like you've seen that exact site before? So many web developers re-use themes, falling into the trap of a site that just doesn't differentiate itself.
I couldn't imagine building a site without:
From online business card to full e-commerce stores, we can discuss what you need and how to fit that in your budget.
I hate when people say "contact me to find out if you can afford me", so although I'll make an individual proposal / quote for you here is a ballpark idea of what a website might cost with me:
Unless you're very trusting and hands-off, you'll be involved in choosing between ideas, discussing colours, and most importantly designing your mesaging.
I'm happy to help at every stage, and I find a good way to do that is a weekly meeting. This gives a chance for your feedback, and if you're not feeling like a super writer it also means I can "interview" you, learn what it is you're trying to say, and find the words for you. It'll be a bit like a therapy session!
Although every project is unique, for a smaller project the timescale might look like this:
Week 1: Discovery
I need a sense of where you're coming from, what your goals are and what level of involvement you prefer. I'll write up what I've understood in the form of a proposal, outlining expected costs and timeframes customised for your project. If you're happy with all that, we move ahead! You'll get your first invoice (a deposit for half the project total) on acceptance of the proposal.
Week 2: Content
I show you some design ideas and we flesh out the exact content and messaging together.
Week 3: Feedback
The site will be coming together by now and we can go through a draft together.
Week 4: Quality Control
I have a big checklist I go through to make sure the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed. This includes SEO, testing on various devices, making sure it's accessible to blind and deaf people, security considerations and setting up Google Analytics to measure how the site is performing. I like to measure.
Week 5: Site's Alive!
Once you're happy, we go live! Time to open the Champaign!
You'll receive the invoice for the remainder of the project and we'll transition to whatever Aftercare you've selected, to keep measuring and tweaking the site gradually towards perfection.
