How does the payment process work?
The project begins with a 50% deposit. After the design is complete and revisions have been made I collect the remaining 50%. At this point, I will launch your site!
How long does it take to build a website?
I work with a limited number of clients so I can devote my attention and expertise to you and work quickly towards launching your website.
The design and development of a basic site takes between one and two weeks. After this, the revisions phase will begin. This tends to be the longest phase in the design process and will vary from project to project depending on the number of revisions required.
Who will I work with during the project?
All of my clients work one-on-one with me. I will support you, keep you up-to-date and answer any questions you might have during the project.
What platform do you build your websites on?
Like nearly 30% of the internet, I use WordPress on my own and my client’s sites. You can learn more about WordPress and why I use it below.
Can you help me write content for my website?
At the moment I don’t have a copywriter on staff, but I am able to refer you to some amazingly talented writers who will be able to help you.
Can you help me source photos for my website?
Absolutely! I can help you find stock photos or recommend photographers for headshots and speciality photos.
Do I own my website?
Of course! Once the final payment has been made, all rights revert to you.
Will my website work on mobile?
Yes, I use a mobile responsive framework and run tests prior to launch to gage how your site will look on various devices.
Will my website have a blog?
Yes! Or no, if you don’t want one.
Why can't I just use Wix?
You can go with Wix or Weebly but you’re not just paying me to make your website pretty.
You’re paying me because you want a professional website that will be taken seriously by your potential clients. Your website will be flexible and versatile and it will scale with you as your business grows.
At the end of the process, you will have a website that will show potential clients why they should work with you and give them everything they need to take the step and contract with you.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a website creation tool and a powerful website content management system (CMS). WordPress allows you to easily and quickly make changes to your website.
Why use WordPress?
WordPress is used by nearly 30% of the internet including some huge business and learning institutions (The Harvard Business Review, Disney, BBC America and Sony Music are just a few).
We use WordPress because it’s open source allowing for a large developer community. What this means is that we have the ability to add just about any functionality you need to your site.
What’s a Plugin?
A plugin is an existing piece of code that adds a specific functionality to a website. Plugins enable website owners to add certain features to their website above and beyond what WordPress offers. They can be free or paid, depending on the functionality and complexity.
Is WordPress Secure?
WordPress is updated anywhere from 4 to 8 times per year, which is more frequent than most types of software. The regular updates continually increase the security of WordPress websites and ensure the very latest version is in use.
Why do I need to install updates?
Installing updates to your WordPress website are essential to maintaining the security of your website. In addition to fixing any issues or adding functionality, updates fix security holes. Because WordPress is so popular, a lot of hackers target it. Out-dated versions of WordPress and plugins are a security liability.
