Website Development Quote Website Development Quote

If you have not already done so, you will want to take some time to think about what you wish to accomplish with your new website. Determine if you will need any special functionality or interactivity with your visitors; consider the type of design style which appeals to you and then be sure to let us know.

When you are ready, please request your free, no-obligation website design quote.

Website Needs Analysis Needs Analysis

Based on the information you provided when requesting your free quote, we attempt to determine your needs, what you are expecting from your website, and try to get a feel for your industry. This is why it is important for you to be as detailed as possible when requesting your quote.

We may have questions for you to help clarify certain issues and we will express those before quoting on your project.

If we believe that your website development project could benefit from our services and skills, we will quote you on your project.

Website Development Contract Website Development Agreement

Once we have come to an agreement on project details, timeline and price, we will prepare a website development agreement for you to review, sign and send back with your deposit. (Agreements are not required for projects under $1,000.00.)

Development Deposit Initial Deposit

The signed contract and 50% deposit is required before we schedule a time slot for your project. The remainder of your balance will be due upon project completion. Once we have received your 50% deposit and signed contract, we will provide you with a copy of the fully executed contract, a receipt for your deposit and your project start date. All projects are scheduled on a “first come, first served” basis.

Domain and Hosting Domain name registration / Website Hosting

If needed, we will immediately secure your desired domain name (pending availability) and include the first 1 year of service. The domain is registered in your name with your information and you will be the only registrant contact on file with Light Speed Networks as the Technical Contact.

If you had requested hosting services, your first month of “Economy” hosting will be included in your contract, for details regarding our “Economy” hosting package, see hosting features below. (Hosting packages may be upgraded for an additional fee, if desired. Some Website design features may require that the Hosting be upgraded to support Scripts, Security, Bandwidth, etc.).

Graphic Design Phase

Development Project Project Begins

Upon receipt of your deposit and contract (if applicable), the developer in charge of your project will email you to confirm receipt of your deposit/contract, give you their direct contact information and possibly provide a list of items which will be needed from you over the course of development.

You will need to let us know the navigation links you would like (such as home, about us, services, etc) and supply all text and/or product information to be included on your site. In addition, you may also supply material such as company logo, personal photos, etc, if desired.

If you have any guide sites you would like us to refer to when designing your site or if you have any preference as to colors, style, etc please offer that information as well.

For E-Commerce sites that require us to enter products for you, we will need you to supply a listing with the following: Product Name, Unique Product ID Number (if any), Product Description, Options (if any – size, color, etc), Price, Approximate Weight, Number in Stock, as well as the product photos named in correspondence with the Product ID Number.

Ideally, all of the above information should be supplied prior to us getting started.

Work will commence on your scheduled start date. The developer in charge of your project will contact you on that day to confirm that we are getting started.

Custom Designed Website We work with you to insure your web site design requirements are metCustom Designed Website Concepts

We will provide two possible custom designed home page concepts for your project. In most cases, we will be able to provide these designs within 3-7 business days following your start date.

After you have reviewed the designs and decided which one you would like to use, we will continue to make modifications to the design until the final desired look is achieved. Once the final desired look is achieved, we will create the interior page layout, convert the design to HTML, add programming, etc.

During this process, you will have the opportunity to review progress. (See next item.)

View Development in Progress In Progress Viewing

We establish a private directory for your new website on our testing server so that you may view the website development progress at any time. In addition, your project manager will inform you via email when extensive updates to the site have been made so you can review the most recent progress.

Stock Photography Professional Stock Photography

All projects include use of professional stock photography images from our current collection to help establish site theme, if needed.

Contact Forms Response Forms / Email Contact Forms

We always recommend at least one contact form for your visitor’s convenience. Using a contact form, a visitor can email you directly from your website without needing to open their email program. This is especially convenient if a visitor is not using their own computer when their email program is not available.
