Following is a basic process flow when working with me on a site design.

  • Initial contact.  Review referrals, portfolio, request for project pricing proposal.
  • Review project proposal, scope, pricing.
  • Agree to begin project, gather administrative contact information, passwords, existing site-domain information.
  • Define a “keep”,  “change”,  “add” list based off current content or site detail check list.
  • Decide on a theme direction, including color, scheme, widget options, and special functions.
  • Building process.  Involves stepped check-in’s, where customer views progress and reacts to the build so far.
  • First review.  Includes customer review of entire site, returning a list of changes, and final tweaks.
  • Final review and ok to go live.
  • Transfer old domain account, DNS records if available.
  • Initialize and set up email.  Includes moving old files, configuring computers to accept new email pop/smtp accounts.
  • Propagation of site through the new.  Final check of site functionality.
  • Customer training on basic login, page editing, blog training and more.
  • Ongoing assurance that everything is going smooth and users are getting used to any needed self-changes or requests for small tweaks.
