Stage 1 - Consultation
We'll have an initial consultation (usually over the phone or a back-and-forth via e-mail) about your website project to determine if it would be a good fit for both parties. If you haven't done so already, please contact me.
Stage 2 - Registering for Domain Name & Hosting
You'll register your domain name and web-hosting account. If you already have a website or you've already purchased the domain name then you'll only need to sign up for the hosting account. This video will walk you through that process.
Stage 3 - Website Planning
We'll discuss what pages or sections you want on your website and talk about the website content. You'll submit the content via Jumpchart, a free website planning tool. This way I'll know where you want things to go. This video will show you how to submit your content.
Stage 4 - Editing/Tweaking of Website Preview
After you complete the outline, I'll put everything together and design the website. This part takes 7-10 days. Then I'll show you a draft or preview of the website and show you how to edit the website to your liking.
Stage 5 - Website Launch
After you edit the website you will be able to publish it right away so that it's visible to everyone connected to the World Wide Web.
Stage 6 - Website Management
You will be able to sign in and manage the website, easily, after it's set up. This video will show you how to do that. If you get stuck, I will help you at no charge. If you need ongoing help maintaining your website you can hire me, hire a different website developer, or make the updates yourself. I charge $15 for 30 minutes of updates.
