Step 1: Contact Us
Give us a call at (217) 502-2519 or fill out our contact form and we’ll set up a time for a quick consultation. We’ll discuss your business’s needs and answer any questions you may have, then we will send you a proposal. After you accept we’ll schedule time for a design meeting.
Step 2: Design Intake Meeting
Design meeting phone calls normally take 45 minutes to an hour. We identify your design preferences and throughly explain our design process so you know what to expect. We’ll discuss your business’s branding, content needs, and customer demographics to hone in on exactly what will make your website a success.
Step 3: Content Outline
Based on information we gather from the design meeting, we will create a content outline for the initial pages of your website. We will guide you through creating the copy and imagery we need to complete your project. If you’d prefer a more hands-off approach, we offer copywriting and photography services at additional rates.
Step 4: Home Page Design
We will send you a home page mockup from the information we gather in the design meeting. This is an image that will look exactly like your real website will look, so you won't have any surprises. We use placeholder images and text until we’ve received or created all the necessary content.
Step 5: Design Revisions
After reviewing the home page mockup, we make any changes and adjustments you’d like to the design. We don’t limit revisions, but we ask that you give us a comprehensive list to make the process quick and smooth. After the home page is complete, we will send you an inner page design mockup to approve.
Step 6: Development
After you have approved your home page and inner page mockups, we'll need all text, images and other content finalized. After the designs and content are finalized, we start to develop your website. This stage typically takes 3-7 business days to complete. During this time we will discuss your options for hosting and support with a Harvard Park Digital WordPress Care Plan.
Step 7: Website Launch
After the website is developed you will be able to check and finalize the fully functioning website before launch. Once launched, your website is viewable to the world through your domain name.
Step 8: Follow-Up
A few weeks after launch, we will follow-up with you to make sure everything is working great. At this point we can discuss any other digital marketing needs you might have. We want to make sure your website investment is successful and growing your small business.
