Step 1. Feel the need
The fact that you're here means you realize you have a need to create a site that will enhance your business. Congratulations, you're ready for Step 2.
Step 2. Sign up for your free consultation
This simple step takes just a few minutes. After we receive your request, we'll contact you to schedule your session.
Step 3. Pick our brains while we pick yours
Chances are good we'll have a lot more questions than you do. If we work together, we like to think of ourselves as your partners in growth, so it's important for us to understand your business and your customers. If the consultation includes marketing services, expect to spend at least an hour with us. It'll be time well spent though... in most cases we'll leave you with 3-5 methods you can incorporate at little or no cost that could increase your business by up to 200% in 60 days. Not a bad return on a one hour investment of time!
Step 4. Review the proposal
If the consultation was for a web site, we'll prepare a proposal for your review. Typically the proposal will include two or three custom plans to address your needs. You can choose whichever one best fits your goals, time and budget. If you don't see the perfect plan, that's okay... we'll work with you to deliver exactly what you want.
Step 5. Say YES!
We will call you one week after the free consultation. Are you ready to put the plan into action? Great! We'll let you know what materials we need from you (at a minimum this will be existing marketing materials and your logo). We'll prepare the contracts and schedule so we can get to work.
The Development Process
While you gather the materials we listed in Step 5 above, we'll be preparing design mockups for your approval. Depending on the plan you selected, as many as three unique layouts will be developed. You will have plenty of opportunity to tweak your favorite design until it perfectly suits the image you want to present.
If your plan includes a site visit for photography, we'll schedule the picture taking session to coincide with a meeting over the design.
Once we receive your final approval for the design, we'll begin the process of coding your site. You will be asked to periodically review the work in progress.
For database powered web sites, you will receive training on all administrative functions.
Your acceptance marks the end of the initial development, but not the end of our relationship. We will be close by to guide you and answer questions to make sure you are using the site to its maximum potential. As is the case with all the work our company performs, we expect what we do to pay for itself over a nominal period of time. If it's not performing, we'll work with you on corrective action. We aren't happy until your site makes you money! More
We aren't always the right match
Obviously not everyone we meet with ultimately chooses to work with us. The reverse is also true. There are some simple requirements that must be met before we accept someone as our client. We'll discuss it in greater detail during the consultation, but among the most important points are that they operate their business with integrity and that they are truly focused on the needs of their customers.
