Have questions on how to get started? Here are some that we get frequently.
I already have a website/domain name but want to be able to edit it myself?
Awesome! Let’s get started, I can use the design you already have and convert it to a mobile friendly WordPress theme for you.
But I'm not happy with my existing design?
No problem! You can have a new theme custom designed or choose from one of the premade themes. Want a custom website built and maintained? Can do!
So how do we get started?
Contact me or fill out my quote request so I know a little bit of what you would like, the type of site, the mood you want to set, colors, number of pages, whether you want to be able to maintain the site yourself or prefer to have it maintained for you. This will help me give you a cost estimate for your site.
After we’ve talked about what you would like, and you agree to what I have quoted you for the site, then a 50% deposit is required and agreement to all the terms of service. When the deposit has been received and you have agreed to the TOS, we’re ready to begin. Please note all new design requests are on a first-come, first-served basis, and if I do not have an opening right away your deposit will assure you of the next available design opening.
OK, I'm on the list and you have my deposit $$ - now what?
Now, it’s very important that you let me know everything that you pictured for your website, even if there is a wait, you can let me know of ideas and suggestions you might have. Not really sure of what you want? Then we’ll start with things, such as your favorite colors, type of fonts, what mood you’d like to show, ie; playful, serious, splashy, plain, and/or maybe a certain theme you had in mind like, western, fairytail, floral, wedding, grunge, cooking, pet related, modern, business, anything that will help me create what you envision for your website. The more information I have the better.
How long will it take before my site is done?
It’s hard to give an exact time frame, communication is the most important aspect. If I can interpret correctly what you would like, then usually it only takes a couple design samples to have something you will like. All your ideas and suggestions are always welcome. Once you are happy with the sample of how it looks and the basic layout then the rest comes together pretty quickly and your site will be ready to put up on your hosting.
Wait! Website Hosting, Domain Name… What's all this!?!
Confused about those and what they mean? Without both domain name and hosting your awsome new website won’t be seen. The domain name is the name of your website, the www.yourwebsite.com part. Hosting is to give your website a home, a place your website lives on the internet with an address. Your domain name will point to this new address to make it easier to get to and remember.
Both domain name registration and hosting are yearly recurring fees. Some hosting companies that we like are listed here.
But I live far away?
No problem! I have clients all over the world, and everything is done via email. I’m also just a phone call away.
