Step 1: Reach Out to us

Say hello! Submit a contact form, schedule a free consultation, or give us a call and tell us what we can help you with. From there, we'll schedule some time to introduce ourselves and learn more about you and your business.

Let's get to know each other and see if we're a great fit together!

Step 2: Free Consultation & Initial Discovery Session

It's our job to help you make the best digital marketing decisions for your business. That's why in our free consultation call and initial discovery session, we'll help you decide if we are the right digital agency for you to partner with. We'll get to know you, your business, and your goals and help you decide which digital marketing strategies will make the most sense to utilize.

If we determine that we aren't a great fit as partners, we will try to point you in another direction!

Step 3: In-Depth Discovery Session!

If we determine that we're the correct digital agency to help you with your needs and mission we'll team up and take the next step. This is where we will schedule your in-depth discovery session.

While we might have gotten to know you, your business, and your goals in our initial meeting, it's time to take it to the next level. This is where we will get down to the nitty-gritty details. Specific business goals, key performance indicators, what your business operations look like, your sales funnels, specific website desires, and much more. We'll plan out exactly what you need out of a website and how we can deliver that success for you.

Step 4: Let's Make it Official

This is the part of the process where we will send over the Statement of Work (SOW), a comprehensive contract, and the first project invoice. As part of our web design process, the first project invoice will be for 50% of the total project value.

After the SOW is approved, the contract is signed, and the first invoice is paid, there's just one more step before the project commences!

Step 5: The Content

Content - the final, and one of the most important steps in the process before the project begins! Without great content, it's impossible to build an amazing website. So what do we mean by content? Content includes images, logo files, reviews/testimonials, copy/writing, key information, etc. Content is what makes a website interesting and keeps visitors engaged!

Don't have the media and copywriting that you need? No worries! We can source stock images for you included at no additional charge as part of your web design package, and we also have contact with talented copywriters. When all of the content is ready, it's time to begin!

Step 6: Let's Get Started!

It's time to get excited! The project is officially underway!

Step 7: Website Design, Development, and Initial Revisions

Let the web design process begin! This is where our talented website designers will plan your website layout, color scheme, and typography. Our team of designers will begin building out your website on a temporary domain that you will be able to access for a live preview of your website build! When the home page rough draft is completed, we'll ask you for your revisions on the home page layout, navigation, color scheme, and typography.

After you approve the home page rough draft, we'll build out the accompanying website pages to match your custom home page theme!

Step 8: The Second Round of Revisions

At this time, the rough draft of your website build will be complete! We'll ask you to visit the website hosted on the temporary domain from all of your devices (laptop, phone, tablet, etc.). This is the step where you will give us all of your final revision requests. After you're 100% satisfied with your website, we will move on to the official launch!

Step 9: Launch Time

Boom! The day you have been waiting for has arrived! Your website is all set up and ready to be launched.

We'll test your website speed, contact forms, conversion points, security, and email integrations. After those tests are passed with flying colors and the final 50% payment is made, we'll point the website at the official domain!

Your brand new website is now ready to kick ass and take names!

Step 10: Training Time

You will love how easy it easy to manage your brand new website!

We'll integrate training videos into your WordPress dashboard that explain how to create new pages, new blog posts, edit headings, images, layouts, products, and more all with the power of Elementor. If there is ever something you aren't sure how to do you can contact us, or search Elementor's vast library of resources!

Step 11: Managed Website Care Plans + Website Hosting

Your new website is an investment that needs to be properly maintained! That means performing website security checks, routine plugin updates, remote storage website backups. Your website will also need to be hosted with a reliable, fast hosting company.

Does that overwhelm you? That's okay! We offer managed website care plans! Both tiers of our website care plans include a high-end security plugin, routine security checks, weekly plugin updates, and weekly remote storage backups so you can spend your time focusing on something else!

Step 12: Celebrate and Grow your Business!

It's time to celebrate! Your brand new website is live, secure, and bringing in revenue for your business. Now get out there and shine!
