Before we start

Before we start your website design, here are some steps to prepare for it:

  1. We'll meet up (either in person or electronically) and get to know one another.

  2. I'll send you a pretty lengthy questionairre to better understand what you're wanting/needing this website to be.

  3. I'll create a custom quote, invoice and contract including timeline and deliverables. 

  4. After you've signed the contract and paid the deposit, we'll begin!

  5. Please note, deliverables and timeline are effected on timely communication on both our parts, as well as, any additional items added.

  

Creative Process

  1

STEP

YOUR HOMEWORK

Create a Wix account, purchase template and plan (I will guide you to the one that best matches what you need/want).  Create a dedicated pinterest board (don't forget to add me) that represents your brand style as well as website layout ideas, design layouts, wants/needs.

YOUR DESIGN

I will need your logo, color palette, brand fonts and patterns, and brand high-res images prior to starting. If needed help with this, you can add on the mini-brand board for an additional fee (includes your current logo, a logo variation, a new color palette, custom patterns, etc).

I CAN HELP!

We can meet in person if able to, or over FaceTime and I can walk you through all this.

STEP

CUSTOMIZATION

Cost includes editing and customizing your site design settings: fonts, color palette, headings, website info, favicon, etc.  This also includes a mobile-friendly site.  A custom designed coming soon page can be used and placed on your website while the website is in development. It can include social links and a sign-up. (1 revision)

HOMEPAGE + BLOG

Customized homepage & blog design based on the overall layout of the template you choose, your pinterest inspiration and your content, NOTE: I will take the template as a starting point and will re-arrange/re-design/and add to it based on your content/inspiration. The goal is that it feels like a more custom/unique design just for you. (3 revisions)

INTERIOR PAGES

Once the homepage design is approved the remaining pages will be customized to be cohesive and match your overall style (ex: if you have a pattern overlay, textures on images, call-to-action lettering, etc those will be reflected throughout the site). (3 revisions)

STEP

SEO

Cost includes optimizing your website for SEO (search engine optimization), basically allowing Google to know you exist and make it searchable.  I'll set your website with Google Analytics, learn more about this free service at here.

TESTING AND GO LIVE

We will both test your site, both the desktop and mobile version.  Once approved by you and you already have a domain, you will transfer your domain (I can help), and I will take it from there and make the site live!  If you don't have a domain, you can purchase one at this point.

HOORAY! YOUR LIVE!

Hooray, your website is ready to be seen by all! You’ll receive a video tutorials prior on how to use your site (along with resources), additional tutorial time is available at my hourly rate.

Notes

I primarily design through Wix and highly recommend it!  If you already use another platform, like Squarespace or Wordpress, and would like to stay with it, I can edit your current site for an additional fee.  My service is to help you create the website through the platform, you are responsible for following/agreeing to the platform's terms and conditions. 

Website transferring, domain/hosting/email setup, and support are all charged and managed separately and not included in the package. Sam DeLeon is not resonsible for website downtime or hosting.

 

Additional design items require a custom quote (ie: additional pages, e-commerce, e-course, etc). Revisions made after final files are sent are billed separately.
