6 Short Steps Towards Your Brand New Web­site
  • 1. Inquire

    Through the phone, email, and an online inquiry I get to know you, what you do, and what you want to achieve with your online pres­ence.

  • 2. Meet

    After the assess­ment we can meet by phone, Skype, or in per­son. We focus on your online mar­ket­ing goals. The same or next day, I email a pro­pos­al with ser­vices, pric­ing, and spec­i­fi­ca­tions.

  • 3. Choose

    You can mark your choice(s) on the pro­pos­al, sign, and return it. It is our con­tract. Once I receive con­tract, first pay­ment, and require­ments, you can select 1 out of 3 exam­ple lay­outs to get start­ed.

  • 4. Build

    I cre­ate your host­ing account then install and con­fig­ure all web­site soft­ware, fea­tures, and func­tions. I orga­nize all con­tents. Then I cre­ate visu­al­ly attrac­tive pages, promi­nent calls for action, and user-friend­ly nav­i­ga­tion.

  • 5. Review

    I pub­lish the site on a tem­po­rary address for review. You can give feed­back in your reply. I make the changes and test for web­site and mobile per­for­mance, respon­sive­ness, and user expe­ri­ence.

  • 6. Publish

    I cre­ate and test your email account(s). Your web­site is ready. Take anoth­er look. After you sign off, I pub­lish it on its per­ma­nent web address. You are live. Con­grat­u­la­tions.
