Your Professional Website 2016-12-27T17:14:10+00:00

Professional Website

If you don’t have a professional website, or your current website could be improved, I invite you to consider my services. I’ve been building and supporting websites since 1998, primarily for individuals, small companies and nonprofit organizations. I specialize in Content Management Systems, specifically WordPress, when building websites because these allow the client to easily access and update the site’s pages when necessary, and require very little training and no expensive software.

Professional Website Basic Website Design

An Internet connection and browser are the only tools and investment you need for maintaining your own site.

All web pages and graphics developed belong to the client when the project is completed. Clients provide text, graphics and videos for the site. If you need assistance with writing, editing, graphic design or videography, I can direct you to local resources who can help you create or refine your content.

The Professional Website includes integration of your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus and LinkedIn). Please contact me for a quote.

PROJECT SEQUENCE

Initial Phone/Google Hangout/Skype Meeting – Tell me about your business. I will ask you a number of questions that will help me understand your company’s past, present and your goals. Upon your acceptance of the proposal and an initial deposit, we’ll set project goal dates.

Domain Name Registration – I will assist in registering the domain name for your project, if not already registered. Your company is listed as the legal registrant for the domain. At this time, I will assist you secure web hosting.

Keyword Identification – It’s important to know early on what the keywords are for the site. We will want to work your keywords into the web page coding and the actual text content.

Site Structure – Because design follows form, we need to examine the current site structure. We will make a diagram indicating how many pages will be created, their names and content needed, and then identify database structure and function.

Design – Next, we will select a site interface (theme) that complements your company identity, message and navigation. Materials will be needed from you at this point such as logos, editorial content, graphics and so on. I will work with you – making revisions – until it meets the goals of your project. This component can vary significantly in complexity. I work closely with you to create a great looking, functional interface while keeping within the project budget.

Content Gathering – Content (text, images, video) comes from many sources: your existing brochures, newsletters, fliers, newspaper ad copy, radio spot copy and so on. Collect it and send it to me and I will help you edit into web text.

Programming – Programming adds a great deal to a site’s functionality. Commercial scripts are used to make sure your site rises above the average. Sample scripts include contact forms, photo galleries, mailing list sign-up, custom forms and calculators, shopping carts, browser and plug-in detection and database integration.

Construction – At this stage, I will bring together all of your site’s elements – the site interface, the text copy and images to actually build your site.

Proofing / Acceptance – I publish your site so you and your staff can review the site and give me feedback. Once you approve the site, we move into maintenance.

Ongoing Maintenance – I am here to support you and your website, if needed. Call for maintenance and training.
