Excited to get started, so are we! Below is an overview of the materials we need and our design process.
Step 1) What Do I need To get Started?
DOMAIN / HOSTING CREDENTIALs
Images & Media
Step 2) THE DESIGN PROCESS
Designing a website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process that can be overwhelming at times. To better prepare you for what’s expected during the design and development process we’ve outlined the steps below.
Layout and Design
Edits and Revisions
Step 3) Website Goes 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 restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to pull up on some devices. Some computers will need to be refreshed in order to see the new site, though most computers will see the new site immediately depending on the wifi connection and where they are in relation to the location of server that the website is on.
Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you via basecamp or secure email insuring 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 Maintenace/Secuirty Plan which I highly recommend for all my clients.
Programs and Software We Use
Basecamp Project Management Software
Basecamp is an awesome online platform for communication and project management. We’ll be using this to send messages, share files and track progress during the process. This will help alleviate content and images being lost in long email threads. Everyone loves email threads…right?! (Don’t worry you can still use your email. The messages will post directly to basecamp!) Once your project is underway, you’ll receive an email to set up your basecamp profile and we’ll be off and running!

Dropbox File Sharing Program
Dropbox is a great online image/file sharing platform. This isn’t necessary for every project, but if you have more than 15-20 images for your website or if they’re too big to send through email or post on basecamp, we can use dropbox. We can also use this to share important logins and credentials instead of sending through email. I will set up a folder for the project and will share the folder with you via email. You can upload all images and files there.
