The web development process

and what to expect




two people discussing web design


The first step is a free, no-obligation phone consultation. I'll ask a few questions to get to know your requirements.

Do you have any kind of website already? Do you have a logo? Have you seen any other websites you really like?

I will suggest some features you might find useful and answer any questions you might have.

a web design quotation


Unless I have some fancy features to research, I'll probably be able to quote a price over the phone.

I'll send a written quote to you by email that will include a full breakdown of everything we discussed and everything I'd do for you as part of the project.



web design handshake


If it's meant to be, let's make it official! I'll put our agreement together in an electronic contract and email it to you.

Once you've read it, you can "sign" the document online. I'll receive a notification, and get straight to work!

I'll request a 50% deposit at the start of the project and you can settle the balance when we push the button to launch.

ideas and content 

  • Have you seen any other websites you really like?
  • Do you have a domain name (web address) already, or shall we register a new one?
  • Can you provide some text and images for the website?
  • Do you have a colour scheme or style in mind?


first draft

  • Put your feet up and leave the rest to me!
  • I'll get to work on a first draft based on our discussions, examples, content, etc.
  • I'll build the draft on a temporary URL (web address) so that if you have an existing website, it can stay where it is until we're ready to launch.


review and feedback

  • A lot of people don't really know what they want until they see a first draft, and that's ok!
  • Chances are, this is when the ideas will really start flowing. Don't hold back!
  • Have a good look through the website — trying it on desktop and mobile devices.
  • Send me a summary of any amendments you'd like me to make.


website amendments

  • I'll implement all of the amendments you request, as long as they are within the scope of the project.
  • Within reason, new features and content can be added.
  • If you'd like anything done a different way — just ask!
  • I'll do my best to ensure the finished product makes you happy.


final check

  • Take another look at the website, and make sure everything is as you expect.
  • I'll conduct thorough quality assurance.
  • I'll test that the website functions as expected on all commonly used browsers and devices.
  • Oh go on then - one final round of amendments before we launch. Don't say I'm not good to you!





website launch

Pushing the button

Launching the new website will feel like a big deal, and it is, but don't worry - changes can of course still be made after it's launched.

I'll "repoint" your web domain so that it begins to show your new website.



website training

Website training

This is what Website Independence is all about. You'll have the "keys" and the knowledge to log in and make edits on your own.

I'll provide an online training session for you and/or your colleagues.

You'll also receive a personalised instruction manual for your website's dashboard.



web support

Ongoing support

Don't worry if you get stuck - I'll be around to help edit the website if you need me.

My current hourly rate is £55. Any work you need me to complete after your website is launched would be fully itemised in invoicing.

Support can take the format of adding new features, editing content, supplementary training, or a combination.
