How we work together to create your new website - Little Nerd Web Design

So, we’ve had the discovery call and I’ve found out what you’re after. I’ve quoted you a price and you have decided I’m the little nerd you want building your new website for you. But what happens next? This post will help you understand the process of how we will work together to create your new website, from the initial concept to your website finally going live (this will be on a Tuesday by the way).

“I SIGNED ON THE DOTTED LINE AND GAVE YOU MY MONEY. NOW WHAT?”

The contract is signed, deposit paid, and all your content is ready (it really helps to have your content ready otherwise this could slow down the project). But now what? I do my nerdy magic thing of course and make you a bloody fantastic website. But not without you!

If you haven’t already done so I will ask you to fill out a Website Design Questionnaire. This helps us narrow down the direction you want to go in and reduces the need for revisions further down the line.

“OK, I’VE DONE THAT”

Great! I run away and put my witchy magic hat on (that’s where I keep all my great ideas). I’ll come up with a few homepage designs for you to look at. You tell me which one you prefer. It could be one or the other, or a combination of all of them. Once you’ve made that important decision I run away again, and I use my nerdy magic to build your homepage. This part could take up to two or three weeks so things might seem a little quiet, but rest assured, magic is happening behind the scenes.

I come running back to you with a link to a live development site. This is where you can see the magic with your own eyes for the first time. You’ll either squeal like a 90s teenager at a Backstreet Boys concert or you will cringe like an AC/DC fan at an Atomic Kitten gig. Hopefully the first one, that’s what the questionnaire was for. Either way, you’ll take a good look at it and tell me which parts you love, which parts you hate, and everything in between. I’ll take your feedback and make any changes you ask for before we move on to the next part.

“SO FAR SO GOOD!”

We’ve nailed the homepage! Fantastic! We’ll move on to the rest of the website now. My little nerdy brain will build all the other pages in the same style/theme as your homepage. You can view the magic at any time via the link given to you previously and you will have the opportunity to provide feedback again (just like we did with the homepage). This part of the process will take longer as there’s more pages to do and other bits, like a blog, or an FAQ page maybe. We could be looking at four to six weeks here, maybe longer depending on the kind of website. There won’t be radio silence though, we’ll still be back on forth on things. I want you to be 100% happy with your website obviously.

“I LOVE THE NEW WEBSITE!”

The nerdy magic continues. I thoroughly test your new website (still on the development site) on different devices/browsers/screen sizes. It needs to look bloody brilliant no matter what device people are using to visit your website. A few tweaks may be necessary here and there, but you will have chance for a final round of feedback before we wrap the project up and prepare to go live (did I mention this will be on a Tuesday).

That’s it, my nerdy magic and your website is complete. You pay any outstanding balance that may be due, and we go live!

“IS THAT REALLY IT?”

No, it isn’t! You will receive training documents on how to find your way around the backend of your website so you can easily update it yourself in the future. I can also jump on a Zoom call and go through it with you. If you feel like you would benefit from a Zoom session, then just let me know and I’ll make it happen.

And that’s not all! All my website builds come with one month’s FREE support afterwards. Should you find yourself stuck on anything, I’m right there with my nerdy magic to help you out. During that month, I will monitor your website for performance/speed etc and keep any plugins updated for you. I also offer a WordPress Care Plan. so if you struggle with keeping your new site updated and secure once the month is up, you can let me take care of that for you, leaving you to concentrate on your business.
