Let's Get Started Developing Your Website—4 Easy Steps
The first step is to schedule an online meeting or a phone call. We want some time, usually forty-five minutes to an hour, to get to know you. We will listen to you describe your work, your needs for a website, and your plans for your business. We will also briefly explain our website development process.
After this meeting, we will email you a Proposal/Agreement.
This document outlines our scope of services, expectations, the timeline for the project, and our fees. It serves as the professional contract to work with us.
When the Proposal/Agreement is signed, we will set up a shared Google Drive file and send you our Website Design Questionnaire to fill out and return to us, either by email or by dropping it into the shared Google Drive file. This questionnaire is a starting point to see how you're set for branding and content for your website. Some of the information may be brand new to you but don't worry, we'll be creating and developing anything that's missing in the beginning. Most of our clients take about two weeks to fill out the questionnaire.
YOUR website Development BEGINS!
Optional Services We Provide—What Do YOU Need?
Copywriting, Editing, Content Creation
Not everyone is a writer. If you need help with the written content on your site, beyond the basics, we can help you. Good copy is important to enchant and attract the exact audience who will gladly pay for the value you give. Basic proofreading and correction of spelling, grammar, and punctuation is part of what we do with all of your copy and content and is included in our basic website development fee, but some people need more help. If your copywriting skills need help, and you need enchanting content for your website, we can provide it for an additional fee.
Fee: $45 per hour
If you need a logo or other graphic images created or marketing materials like speaker-sheets, brochures, rack-cards, posters, etc., we'd be glad to help.
Fee: $30 per hour
Social Media Accounts Branded to Your Website
Your online presence will have the most impact if your social media accounts are branded to your website. We will gladly set up the covers and copy for you, whether it's Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, or any other you wish.
Fee: $100 per social media account (includes graphics, copy, links to your website, and even the first few social media posts)
Creative Audio and Video Production
Having a multi-media website and online presence communicates best to the largest audience. Not everyone has audio and video expertise, but we do! We can create simple to not-so-simple engaging multi-media pieces for your website and social media presence.
Fee: $50 per hour
Training for Managing Your Website
You want to be in control, and we can give you the training to put you in the driver's seat for managing your back-office, blog, store, or any part of your site you wish to control. Some of this training is included in our basic Website Development fee, but for extra hands-on, one-to-one training specific to your needs, the following fees apply:
Fee: $25 per hour
Your website is organic. It needs to be updated and current. We recommend a quarterly or annual check-up to make sure everything is functioning and looking the way you want.
Fee: $100 per update (usually 4 hours of our time)
Social Media Management
You may not like spending time on social media but realize how important it is to the success of your business or online presence. Don't worry! We have a solution! You can have us do it for you, and we can even develop a social media strategy where your blog becomes the content for a multi-platform social media presence that drives traffic to your website.
Fee: Based on the level of support you need, starting at $200/month for three posts to two platforms per week.
Strategic Marketing Planning
Do you have a written marketing plan for your business, organization, or creative idea?
Any business or organization, whether a small solo-entrepreneurial enterprise, a non-profit, an artist, a coach, a mid-size business with employees, or a large corporation, needs a strategic marketing plan to grow and succeed–but very few business owners have actually developed their own written strategy to which they refer regularly to see if they are on track on the road to success.
Your Marketing Plan is your GPS or your map to follow. How comforting is it to get into your car, tell your GPS navigator where you want to go, and know you will get there?
You can do the same with your business. Susan M. Davis has developed a 9-step process to guide you in mapping the course for YOUR OWN business, organization, or brilliant creative idea. She's been helping clients develop strategic marketing plans since 2011.
Fees: One to one, individual strategic marketing planning is a long-term relationship, and it's an investment of both time and money. Our service includes comprehensive branding and business development and a written strategic marketing plan with actionable quarterly goals.
We'd LOVE to work with you one-to-one. Contact us to discuss how this works.
