Websites

how-to-create-a-website-feature-image

Do you need a website for your business or non-profit but have no idea where to start? Are you wanting to display your photography, music, or start blogging, but need help getting started? Over the years, I have designed numerous websites and blogs for both personal use, professionals, and non-profits.

Here’s how it works:

  1. We discuss via phone / email what your needs are in a website and possible domain names. If you already have a domain name, that’s no problem. You can use the same domain or start new, whichever you prefer.
  2.  After hearing your needs and we agree to proceed, I create you a spectacular website using WordPress. I prefer WordPress for several reasons: WordPress offers several terrific templates/themes that are free as well as a plethora of premium ($) themes if you want to go even fancier; WordPress is easy to maintain and very user-friendly once I hand over the reigns to you; WordPress is more cost effective and provides better designs than most other website-building vendors available. It’s also easy and cost effective to map the domain or forward domains if you already own one.
  3. You pay for the cost of the domain, any mapping or forwarding if applicable, and any premium themes if you choose to not go with one of the many free themes WordPress offers. Regardless, you will always have a domain name fee (these vary in price).
  4. Once I’ve started the website, I’ll give you a sneak peak to see if I am on the right track with the look you envisioned. If it meets your approval, I’ll proceed with that design. If not, we’ll move onto another one.
  5. When it’s all said and done, I’ll present your new website to you and make any changes you suggest. Once officially approved and finalized, I’ll teach you how to make adjustments or updates (via phone or computer).
  6. If you feel so inclined to pay me for the time I invested in designing your site, you can financially help support this service by making a payment via Paypal. See “Services” for details.

Here are a couple of sample websites I’ve created recently:
