HOW IT WORKS
Let's start with A, B, C:
A. Purchase your domain
Certain aspects of a website have recurring fees such as the domain name and hosting, so we recommend this to be set up using your own payment methods. I will send you a step-by-step instruction sheet detailing where best to purchase your domain and suggest tools to use to check name availability across all platforms.
B. Pay for hosting
Once you have your domain name you can then organise where your site will be hosted. In basic terms this is renting space on a server for storing your website and the domain is the address where the files can be found. In the instructions I send there will be recommendations for hosting companies based on my experience.
C. Get an SSL
An SSL certificate provides a secure link between the server where your site is hosted and the visitor's browser. This ensures any data passing between the two remains private and encrypted. If you sell products online an SSL is essential, if you don't sell products it gives your site credibility.

WHAT COMES NEXT?
it's as easy as 1, 2, 3...
The on-boarding process involves completing a questionnaire about your business so I can identify the goals for the site and establish what functionality needs to be included. I will ask about sites you love, to get a feel for the overall look you're aiming for, and then we'll schedule a discovery call so we can discuss everything in more depth and give a timeline for completion.
Next I'll do some research into your industry, competitors and ideal clients. You'll get a style guide of your chosen colour and typography for the site along with an initial concept of the home page. You will be asked to critique and request changes before we move to development. Your homework is to start writing content for the sections we are including, ready for stage 3.
Once you've signed off on your design, it's time to build! Now is the time to fill your site with valuable content which will include keywords and answer any questions or objections your clients may have. Once the site is completed, you will get to test out the site in a staging area before we go live.
4. APPROVAL & LAUNCH
It's time for launch! Everything has been tested, approved, and is ready to go live! The test site will now be moved to your host and domain and everything will be prepared for handover.
I will show you how to use the backend of WordPress to make updates to your site such as changing or adding photographs, adding new posts, altering text etc. Should you require more in depth regular alterations I recommend opting for an ongoing maintenance plan so all updates, backups and security checks are taken care of for you.
