Here you’ll find my most frequently asked questions as a website consultant
You’ll find our process & workflow section on the Website Design page where we walk you through each phase of the project from start to finish.
The costs of creating a website vary depending on multiple factors as each client’s requirements differ from one project to the next. My website projects usually start around the $3,000 USD mark and upwards depending on each client’s needs.
This can vary from project to project, but usually a website will take around 4 – 6 weeks to complete, depending on the complexity. We require our clients to have their content (images, text, graphics, logos) ready before we begin, this allows us to work more efficiently and means we won’t have to bother you as often for more images or text. It also means that the project will be completed on time and on budget. If you require help creating content just let us know via the project application form as we can provide this for you at an extra cost.
If you have a specific deadline in mind, please let us know so that we can do our best to accommodate you. Please bear in mind that we often have a waiting list for projects so we recommend getting in touch sooner rather than later to secure your spot in our development schedule.
As soon as you decide you’re ready to invest in your business, we would recommend you begin gathering content (images and text) to bring your website to life. We require your site’s content before we begin creating your website so the quicker we can get those from you, the quicker we can get your new site online for the world to see.
You can apply to work with us via our Project Application form, and if we are a good fit for one another we’ll reach out to schedule an initial consultation.
We require a 50% deposit upon you accepting our project proposal and before the design process begins. The next 25% will be due upon your acceptance of the final design and before we begin fully developing your site and cross-checking everything. The remaining balance is due before launch your site and hand you the keys.
Typically I will request payment via Stripe directly on my website. Upon receipt of payment I will email you a receipt for your accounts.
