What is the process of building a site?

First, we talk about what you're thinking you want your site to include. If you don't know exactly what you want, I can help you decide what you need.

Together, we will come up with a site outline in order to determine how complex the site will be (functions, number of pages, graphics, etc.). Then I come up with a cost estimate and proposal.

Once you accept our proposal, we draw up a contract agreement which you sign and mail to us with your initial payment (I accept checks, credit cards, & Paypal).

After discussing style, color, and image (the "feel" of the site), I come up with a design to show you. Sometimes the client is happy immediately, sometimes I have to go back to the drawing board and tweak it a bit.

Upon approval, the design is converted into code and the framework of your site is built out.
All the text content and graphics are added.

If an e-commerce site, you make your final payment and I turn over site administrative access to you for you to start doing product entry (with full instructions and support from me).

Site is launched and submitted to the appropriate search engines, directories and web rings. Get a quote here and lets get started!
