We will conduct a preliminary meeting with you in person
or over the telephone to determine your overall goals. To begin with, we
listen carefully. Our goal is learn about your current business,
customer base, and your overall marketing strategies - both internet and
any other media currently in use. At this meeting, we will also discuss
your budget and create a basic development schedule to fit your needs.
Part of the goal setting process will be determining the basic
"look" of your site -- should it mirror current print
marketing media or should it have its own separate identity.
Plan and Proposal
After establishing your web site goals, an initial Site Plan
is established that fits within your budget and meets your overall
communication and marketing goals. Once the site plan has been reviewed
and approved by your organization, we formulate a fixed bid Proposal for
review and execution.
All of our Proposals include domain registration costs
and search engine submission fees and your first year's
and e-mail service. This way, you will know all of your costs "up front"
without any surprises at the end of the project.
After acceptance of our proposal, domain registration is completed
and an "under construction" page is posted as soon as your
domain name becomes active on the Internet.
We initially develop your site
from either within our own web site or your own web location. In either case, we provide you with the
internet address you can use to access the site while it is under construction. This
allows you to review our work in progress whenever you want to but does not
permit casual web browsers to find your site while it is under construction.
4. Client Reviews and Feedback
Throughout the development process, you are encouraged to
review your site frequently while it is under construction. Your
feedback and comments are incorporated immediately and your timely
review is absolutely critical to maintain the schedule we have mutually
5. Site Activation
Once final development is complete and you have conducted
your Final Review, your site will be activated. Following this site
activation, we will begin the search engine submission process and any
other marketing programs covered in your Proposal.
6. On-Going Support
Keeping your web site up-to-date in both content and
technology is vital to its success. Your site will be designed to
minimize the added cost of additional services on our part, but should
you require our assistance, we will be ready to assist you.
