Web Design FAQs
Who will write the content?
Usually we collaborate. I will meet with you to talk through the pages, and gather ideas and ‘data’ from you.
I can draft each page, either as a stub to get your thoughts going, or rewrite your existing content for clarity.
As you can imagine, it’s less cost to you if you provide everything. I can then copyedit, and craft the value propositions for each page.
How many pages will my website have?
Most websites are 5-7 pages; including
- Conversion Page
I can build out service, product/book, and location pages for you now or later.
Can I add or edit pages after launch?
Or if you want the freedom to make changes on your own, I’ll provide training or short video walkthroughs.
Rates for any work done are pre-agreed, with suggested hours.
How many rounds of revisions are there?
You will have 1 round for visual feedback.
Round 2 is for content editing.
Your 30 days after launch: if you see any issues or bugs, I will jump in there for free to fix them.
Can you build an eCommerce site?
Let’s discuss your custom solution, and if I’m the right fit for you, or if we need to involve a specialist.
What are the payment terms?
What do you need from me to start?
We will meet for 15 minutes to answer your questions, and gather notes for a proposal. Once you’re satisfied and have signed, the 50% downpayment is required.
Then you get an initial quiz, and a welcome page to show you what you can expect.
We will need to schedule our first core meeting to go more deeply into site structure and strategy.
