Keeping it simple
My niche may be my personal attention. I will spend time with you on the phone or a Zoom screen-share. I speak in layman’s terms, making things as easy as possible to understand. I’ve found that having conversations not only helps me understand your objectives more clearly, many times things will reveal themselves that you may not have anticipated or thought of.
Once you get to see, touch and feel your website as it comes together, other things may reveal themselves and further conversations may be necessary. If you need training, we can do as many calls or Zooms as it takes until you are comfortable.
After we go live, we may need to have more conversations about the future of your website. Or maybe periodic consulting time. I’m happy to do that too! My goal is to have a long term relationship with all my clients. I love working with people and love being part of other company success stories.

Soup to Nuts
What does that mean?
For your reading pleasure, below are some of the steps I take, basically in this order, and gives you an idea of what I have in my arsenal. It’s not all about design although it’s the most fun for me.
Web host server setup/tweaking for speed and security, including and DNS changes. Also things like SSL certificate, PHP version and variables as well as backups (if applicable), staging area (if applicable), caching, email addresses, etc.
Including setting up the database manually if needed, and configuring site settings for things like URL structure, discussion/comment options, company info, admin users, etc.
Install and configure security plugins.
This is a critical first step to make sure your site is secure from the moment it’s installed. Includes anti-spam setup, firewall, limit user logins, etc.
Install and configure Divi theme.
Including things like your logo, custom color palette, fonts, and other global settings. If custom functions are required, a child theme will be installed.
Install additional plugins.
For your specific needs and requirements this might include things like SEO, contact forms/integration, site speed/caching, image compression, analytics tracking, etc.
If eCommerce is needed, WooCommerce is installed along with many additional plugins for things like shipping and payments. A few test (or real) products/product categories are added.
Design the site.
I typically start by adding all the pages to the site without any content so I can make the navigation menus I think will be needed.
At this point, we may decide to make a style guide page with custom presets we can use throughout the site. This makes things consistent and easier to manage but can take some time.
I then begin with the header and footer designs making sure they are polished for mobile from the start.
The home page is usually next with the rest of the pages following soon after.
If eCommerce, I’ll customize the Cart, Shop, My Account, product category, and product pages. This includes a child theme with custom functions and CSS.
And of course, we test, test, test.
Some of the above steps may take much longer than others. It all depends on your requirements. We can walk thru all this during a phone call or email. Contact me.
