There are several steps to getting your Web site from conceptualization to implementation.

The first step is meeting with you (either in person or virtually via email and telephone) so that I can "steep" in your business, getting a multidimensional feel for what your represent, what you are trying to convey and the people you wish to reach via your site. Together we will develop a wish list, including colors, graphic style, what you like/dislike about various Web sites, etc. From there, I can build a tactical outline and I can quote you a price. Since every site is different and we specialize in custom-tailoring each site, there are no set prices, only a general range.

Second, I work up a rough template based on the tactical outline and load the draft in a demo directory for you to view and note changes/edits. This usually happens 2-3 weeks after signing a contract with me.

Next, I flesh out the site, adding content and graphics. Because this will be done in an online demo directory, the client will be able to view the process and continue to comment on their likes and dislikes. Once complete, the client "signs off" on the site and we ready it for initial search-engine registration. We will work together to carefully craft keywords and a description relevent to your industry.

Finally, I launch the site and do an initial submission to Google and a few other search engines. For more robust SEO work, you'll want to consult an expert in that realm.


As noted above, I offer no set prices for sites as I custom-tailor for each client. However, to give you a vague idea, sites start at $1000 for a bare-bones "flyer" site, to $1500 for a "brochure" site, to around $3,500 - $10,000 for a more robust site. E-Commerce sites start at $4500. I also offer hosting. Ninety percent of sites developed are done so on the WordPress platform.
