Anatomy of a Web Project

We build custom websites using a 4-stage process created to keep your project on track.



We start by clarifying your business mission, determining your unique voice and targeting your ideal customers using our Web Project Workbook.



Once your final project mission is established, we dive into creating website designs that best support your business goals and overall brand.



Upon final design approval, we stylize your website in WordPress, using SEO-friendly techniques and responsive (mobile-friendly) code.



After site launch, we offer support for up to 2 months as you test drive your site and determine if Message Management maintenance is right for you.

Need a ballpark estimate? Responsive website projects start at about $2,400, and are typically completed within 8 weeks to 3 months, depending on your project scope.

Now that you’re done gathering artwork, creating content, reviewing designs and clicking through site pages, you’re itching to flip the switch on the completed site. Take a deep breath. You don’t want to rush a launch if your site hasn’t been thoroughly tested. If you teamed with web professionals on the project, they’ve likely followed their own procedures to ensure the site’s launch success. If they didn’t also share some steps with you, or you just […]
