Our Process

Here's how it works:

  1. We will set up an appointment to speak with you in-person or on the phone.

  2. We will review your current website. Tell us what you like and don’t like, and what needs to be changed or added.

  3. You will then get a written quote free of charge.

  4. Once work begins, we move on only with YOUR approval each step of the way.

  5. Once complete, all website files are uploaded and sent to you at no charge.

If you already have a website we can:

  • Evaluate it and make suggestions for improvement.

  • Make it more effective, or design it from scratch within your budget.

  • Teach your employees how to maintain it, or you can just hit the EASY button and leave all the website maintenance to us.

  • We offer one-on-one, personalized attention so you know you are getting what YOU want. All customers receive a FREE 30-minute consultation and free estimate, and we explain what’s going on each step of the way.

  • You can keep tabs on your project with our 24/7 online project management tool – offer feedback and sign-off on decisions on YOUR time. Stress free.

  • We’ll discuss your business goals and won’t sell you anything you don’t need or don’t want.
