The initial step is to have a brief call so we can properly introduce ourselves and
generally discuss the requirements and any special features required on the project as well as your budget.
For more info concerning costing, view the Rates page..
Based on our consultation, I will put together a detailed proposal and contract outlining the scope of work and costing of the project.
Once we are both happy with the proposal, I will draw up the service contract and payment terms. A deposit will be required at this stage in order to initiate the project.
At this stage I will put together the frontend design of the project based on your requirements.
I will require alot of input from you to ensure you are fully satisfied with the look and feel of your website.
When the coding begins there will be generally less communication from me as this is quite an involved process that does not require much feedback.
This is where I take the initial design and add all the functionality that is required for users to interact with the site.
Once this is complete I will upload the website to a testing server and grant you access for testing purposes.
You will then be able to upload your products/data to prepare the site for launch.
After the website has been coded but before it goes live I like to provide in-depth training.
Going forward your website will be easily updatable by yourself so I'll take you through everything over the phone and even provide screencasts for you to keep.
When it's time to launch the new site I'll upload it to your hosting account and configure everything. All you'll need to do is get ready to market your new website!
