Our 5-Step WordPress Website Design Process
Step 1. We first spend time discussing the upcoming project to gain a clear understanding of your goals, brand, theme and marketing. At this time we will ask for necessary items to begin the site, including your logo, images, information, promotional materials and any examples of websites you like. We’re happy to meet you if you’re in the Charlotte or Lake Norman area.
Step 2. Securing the domain name and hosting account. These will always be purchased in your name, so that you own the domain and hosting. We prefer to use GoDaddy, as they offer terrific customer service and WordPress website support. If you already have a domain and/or hosting, we will need login information to your host to access the accounts.
Step 3. Once the tech setup is complete and you’ve provided us with the necessary materials (see step 1), we begin building the website. Unless we tell you different, we ask for approximately 30 days for design. Throughout the process we may reach out to you with a question or two, or more information.
Step 4. After approximately 30 days, we’ll send you a link to your new website. At this point the site will be at least 90 percent complete. This is your opportunity to provide feedback and any changes you’d like. We will make as many edits and/or revisions until you’re 100 percent satisfied.
Step 5. This step is pretty simple… and exciting! We go live with your site on your primary domain. We’ll make sure all links are working properly, page-load speed is good, SEO is setup, and it looks perfect on mobile devices and the various web browsers. Then, it’s time to start promoting your new website!
