1: Contact Amy
Express your interest in working with Amy to create a website. This
can be done by visiting the "Contact Amy"
page, or by sending an email to Amy@WebsitesByAmyBrown.com
2: Gathering Information
Fill out the questionnaire that will be emailed to you after you
express your interest in a website. The questionnaire is meant to
gather as much information as possible to give Amy the necessary
background information about your website. This includes brochures,
business plans, logos, and images you want incorporated into your
3: Creating a Site Map
Using the information you provided in Step 2, Amy will create a
sitemap that shows the general flow of your website. This will include
the main list of menu items to be listed on every page, as well as a
list of the secondary pages and what each of those will contain. The
site map may be revised a few times before moving on to Step 4.
Before the design process begins, a $250 deposit is due to Amy Brown. The deposit is intended to cover
the time spent on the artistic process of creating the website design.
The deposit is non-refundable once work has begun on Step 5 of the website.
5: Basic Page Design
The basic page design, or wire frame, is primarily image and text free, but it will show you where your website navigation will go, fonts and font colors, header and footer, and where the primary text body will be.
The website is still in it's early
stages, and you can notify Amy of
any concerns. This custom design will be used to create all the other
pages for your website, and it is important to get it "just
right" before we move forward.
6: Finalizing the Design and Inserting the Content
After receiving approval of Step 5, Amy will move forward to create
all the pages for your website, and insert the content as outlined in
Step 3. This is the phase when you should finalize all of the text that you'll have on your website.
Look through the site carefully for typos, image placement, etc before approving the design.
7: Uploading your Website to the Internet and Domain Name Registration
Your website is ready to go live and become available to the world!
If you do not already have
a domain name please DO NOT purchase one. Allow me to do it for you. It saves me time in the setup process since I can link it directly
to my servers. If you have any doubt about
which domain name you should request, please be sure to let me know so I
can help you with this decision. Once you choose a domain name I will
register it and upload all of your files to your website!
8: Final Payment
Your first years payment is due
when your site is uploaded to the internet.
