Website process

What to expect when you're expecting a new website

A new design or redesign of a website shouldn’t hold any surprises. Here’s my process for getting you on the road to a new site:


Discovery and Planning

We start with a worksheet to discover your site’s goals and requirements. After reviewing this, I provide specific pricing for your project, take your deposit, and we kick off the project!

With redesigns, I add tracking software to your current site to see where people click and how they navigate your site (even with screen recordings!). This better informs your new design based on data, rather than conjecture.

designYou are integral to the process as I provide designs for you to review. We work within a number of concepts and revisions so both your time—and mine—is valued.

Content is a sticking point for many projects! I do offer copywriting services as well as vetted referrals. When ready, you’ll review finished pages.

Prior to launch, we’ll test on various platforms and devices, and to make sure everything is working as it should. Then…


The day we’ve all been waiting for! An administrator of your choosing will receive all logins created in a legacy document for safekeeping.

If you prefer a maintenance plan that takes care of all of your needs, I can do that too.

And if you want to make sure users are using the site as we predicted, I can add tracking software to the new site to view usage.
