Before we start, decide what you want the website to do for you.
Ask yourself who the audience is and what they want from you. People need to know what your website is about instantly. Don’t assume they know why they are there. Expect them to do something.
Many people look at other websites for inspiration. Write down features that you like. Sketch if you can. You may have colors or imagery you already use. Think about how you can get images and what you want people to see. We want continuity in fonts, text sizes and color and should have a style sheet.
Your website name
I think we are ready to build a website!
I will give updates after instructions and input from you. I expect you to view the project and give feedback in a timely manner. If the website is “live”, that is, available to the public and has traffic, I will respond quickly and prioritize repairs. I respond pretty quickly anyway.
How does the website look on a phone? a tablet? Does everything work? links good? Does it work for your audience? I will test the website for devices and make adjustments as they arise.
Paying for it
Why I work hourly
Speaking of outsourcing
I don’t send work overseas. when I get to busy I work with people whom I know and trust, and if needed, train. I will tell you if I am doing so. Some over seas contractors further outsource the work and are overly accommodating in your requests. they deliver, any way they can. Almost always this means working around wordpress instead of with it. It might result in a website that defy’s security standards, updating or design standards. I’ve ended up with some of these websites, I’ve seen things that amaze.
I cant quit you!
I will teach you how to use your new website to make it work for you. It will work on phones and tablets and with social media. Most people want me to stick around and keep your website updated, backed up and safe with monthly maintenance. I can help with on going SEO or help with new content.
Some people like to have a custom dashboard made for them so they only see the areas that concern them. The lovely geek gave me some good advice about custom WordPress dashboards
A good website is never finished
A website that has little content is much like a business a card, it exists only to give you contact and credibility. Even then you might want people to do a search and discover your business thru your website, so you need some content and some visitors.
