Website Development Quote
If you have not already done so, you will want to take some time to think about
what you wish to accomplish with your new website. Determine if you will need
any special functionality or interactivity with your visitors; consider the type
of design style which appeals to you and then be sure to let us know. We have
over 250 templates that are each customizable to you taste
Based on the information you provided when requesting your website design quote,
we attempt to determine your needs, what you are expecting from your website,
and try to get a feel for your industry. This is why it is important for you to
be as detailed as possible when requesting your quote.
We may have questions for you to help clarify certain issues and we will express
those before quoting on your project.
If we believe that your website development project could benefit from our
services and skills, we will quote you on your project.
Website Development Contract
Once we have come to an agreement on project details, timeline and price, we
will prepare a website development contract for you to review, sign and send
back with your deposit. (Contracts are not required for projects under
The signed contract and 50% deposit is required before we schedule a time slot
for your project. The remainder of your balance will be due upon project
completion. Once we have received your 50% deposit and signed contract, we will
provide you with a copy of the fully executed contract, a receipt for your
deposit and your project start date. All projects are scheduled on a “first
come, first served” basis.
Domain name registration / Website Hosting
If needed, we will immediately secure your desired domain name (pending
availability) and include the first year of service. The domain is
registered in your name with your information and you will be the only
registrant contact on file.

Graphic Design Phase
Upon receipt of your deposit and contract (if applicable), the developer in
charge of your project will email you to confirm receipt of your
deposit/contract, give you their direct contact information and possibly provide
a list of items which will be needed from you over the course of development.
You will need to let us know the navigation links you would like (such as home,
about us, services, etc) and supply all text and/or product information to be
included on your site. In addition, you may also supply material such as company
logo, personal photos, etc, if desired.
If you have any guide sites you would like us to refer to when designing your
site or if you have any preference as to colors, style, etc please offer that
information as well.
For E-Commerce sites that require us to enter products for you, we will need you
to supply an Excel spread sheet listing the following: Product Name, Unique
Product ID Number (if any), Product Description, Options (if any – size, color,
etc), Price, Approximate Weight, Number in Stock, as well as the product photos
named in correspondence with the Product ID Number on the spread sheet.

Work will commence on your scheduled start date. The developer in charge of your
project will contact you on that day to confirm that we are getting started.
Custom Designed Website Concepts
We will provide three possible custom designed home page concepts for your
project. In most cases, we will be able to provide these designs within 3-5
business days following your start date.
After you have reviewed the designs and decided which one you would like to use,
we will continue to make modifications to the design until the final desired
look is achieved. Once the final desired look is achieved, we will create the
interior page layout, convert the design to HTML, add programming, etc.
During this process, you will have the opportunity to review progress. (See next
In Progress Viewing
We establish a private directory for your new website on our testing server so
that you may view the website development progress at any time. In addition,
your project manager will inform you via email when extensive updates to the
site have been made so you can review the most recent progress.
Professional Stock Photography
All projects include use of professional stock photography images from our
current library. If a client requires stock photography which we do not
currently possess, an additional fee may apply.
Website Development / Coding Phase
Programming / Coding
All website development programming/coding to run any special features/visitor
interactivity on your website is completed and tested.

static or dynamic pages as needed to complete your site.

Creation of a site map page is done which includes easy one-click access to all
pages of your site.

CSS Style sheet
CSS Style sheets are used to define font faces, styles, sizes and colors for
consistency throughout the site.
A Favicon is a small image that displays in the address bar and on the favorites
menu when someone bookmarks or adds your website to their "Favorites". Creation
of a Favicon is included in all custom website development projects.
Response Forms / Email Contact Forms
We always recommend at least one contact form for your visitor’s convenience.
Using a contact form, a visitor can email you directly from your website without
needing to open their email program. This is especially convenient if a visitor
is not using their own computer when their email program is not available.
Search Engine Readiness Check
Meta Tags, Page Titles, Page Heading, Alt Image Tags, Link Text, and Page Body
Text evaluation and adjustment where needed throughout the website. At no time
can we guarantee when or where the search engines will place your website within
their search results or directory.
Browser Compatibility Testing
Your website is tested on a variety of operating systems and browsers to insure
proper display and functionality.
Grammar & Spell Check
Before the website is launched, a grammar and spell check is performed to insure
there are no mistakes.
Dead Link Check
A thorough check for misdirected links and missing files is performed just prior
to as well as after the launch of the website.
Forms / Programming
Any email contact forms and/or programming features included in your project are
tested to confirm they are functioning as required.
Final payment is always due before we take the website live on your domain. Upon
receipt of final payment, you will be emailed a final/paid in full receipt.
All necessary website files and scripts are copied to your domain and databases
After the website is live, any interactive programming and scripts are tested to
verify proper function. Since the design and testing phase often occurs on a
different server, it is very important to once again verify that everything is
working correctly after taking the website live.
After launch and testing of the website, you are provided with a zipped archive
of all website files.
Instructions & Documentation
When necessary, any documentation needed to use the administration functions of
your website is included in PDF format.
Search Engine Submission
Hand submission and automated search engine submission occurs after launching,
testing and fixing any issues there may have been.
