WHAT I DO...
I offer a variety of services to my clients including
RESPONSIVE DESIGNSWebsites that work well on desktop and mobile devices.
MEASURE THE SUCCESS
How to measure the value? I will connect the site to Google Analytics and Google Search Console so that you will be able to measure the conversion of clicks to customers and verify that Google has indexed the pages.
HOST AND DOMAIN
If you do not have a host and an domain name, I can assist you in aquiring these. Once these are in place I will install and test the site.
I don’t charge a flat rate by number of pages. It doesn’t correlate well with the amount of work required on my end. Usually, the more a client knows what they want; the less time it takes since the creative process can be time consuming.
Money is something we all need but it’s not the main reason why I do this. I do it because I like creating something with a purpose. If you aren’t happy with what I provide, then I will refund your money.
LET'S GET STARTED
Getting started is easy. You can send a description of your project with your contact information and we can go from there. If you already know of a site that could provide inspiration then include that link as well. I look forward to meeting you and learning about your project!
This was a one page website done for a gentleman that had a very good idea of what he wanted.
Frequently asked questions
How will I pay you?
I will email you a paypal invoice. I ask for 50% upfront and 50% upon delivery.
Will I be able to monitor progress and make suggestions along the way?
Absolutely!! I will provide progress updates along the way. I would rather find out earlier than later if I'm deviating from your expectations. The earlier I find out the less rework will be required.
Will you rely on a ready made theme or design from scratch?
The least expensive way to go is to select a theme you like. There are many free ones on wordpress.org to select from. I would suggest looking through the popular ones first. By letting me know which theme you like, I will have a better idea of how you want your site to look. Another way, would be to provide me a link to an "inspiration site". I will not mimic the site site exactly but I would try and create a similar layout and feel.
What will you need from me to get started?
You'll need to provide me what ever I need to log into the WordPress site as an admin. If you are familiar with the admin area for WordPress, you can easily create another admin user. After the work is done, you may delete the user.
In some cases I may need login credentials to the hosting provider as well, depending on what needs to be done. For example, to turn on automatic updates to plugins and themes, I would need access to the wp-config.php file. If you are uncomfortable giving me your login credentials, most hosting providers allow you to create multiple ftp users. Similar to the WordPress login above, you can create a temporary one for me, then delete it after the work in done.
What if I don't have a host or domain name?
I can help you determine a hosting plan that would work for you and your budget. I'm currently partnering with GoDaddy and they have a wide range of services to choose from. Domain names are not very expensive and the first year is usually free with the hosting plan.
Is there risk you may damage the site?
Before I get started I will make a full backup of the site and database in-case anything goes wrong during the process. That way if something goes terribly wrong, I can always restore the site back to it's original state.
