A Peek Inside My VIP Web Design Intensive Process

Here’s what you can expect during my VIP Web Design Intensive. My ultimate goal is to make your web design process go as simply and smoothly as possible. Keep reading for the whole process!

So we’ve decided to work together, yay! This is what you can expect next:

Fill out my questionnaire & content guide

This is my one-stop shop for obtaining all the things I need for your website project! This questionnaire gathers info on your business, website goals, mission, values, and ideal client. It also serves as a guide if you choose to write your own copy (written content) for your website. Writing content doesn’t need to be scary with my guidance!

Let’s take the home page, for example. In my questionnaire, I include an explanation of the goals of your home page such as:

  •  Quickly relay who you are and what value you bring to your clients
  •  Show the ideal path from website visitors to contact/purchase
  •  Identify a client’s problem and give them a solution
  •  Gain visitors’ trust by showing proof

To break this down further, the hero section (or first section of the page) should always include a clear, concise headline and/or subheadline describing what you do and who you serve. I walk you through all the content of any subsequent website pages. Alright, moving on.

Gather and upload your assets

I’ll create a shared Google Drive folder where you can quickly and easily drag and drop any assets you have for your site. This might include professional photos, branding assets (if I did not create them for you), and stock photos.

FYI: Here are a few of my favorite free stock photo websites:

Tip: Find a collection of photos by the same photographer so you have cohesive images throughout your site.

P.S. You don’t have to guess what photos you need for your site— I lay it all out in my brand photography guide.

Purchase your domain name & hosting

In your welcome email, you will receive recommendations for purchasing a domain name and hosting. Along with these recommendations are step-by-step videos walking you through the purchasing process. 

Strategy planning call

Just before your project start date, we will hop on a Zoom call and talk about the details of your site. We will make a plan for the overall design style and user experience. Then it’s time for me to get to work!

Design Time

Step one in the design process is to get the home page dialed in, including the header and footer, before moving on to any other pages. You will have a chance to review the page and request any revisions. 

Next, I move on to any remaining site pages. This likely includes the about page, contact page, services page, and a blog archive and blog post page if desired. Once these are all designed, you’ll have another opportunity to request revisions and changes.

Time to launch!

Woohoo! It’s time to launch your site. You’ll receive social media graphics that you can share announcing the launch of your website.

Video tutorials sent straight to your inbox

I won’t leave you hanging. My goal is to empower you to feel comfortable taking care of their website after I sign off. You’ll receive short videos tutorial on how to perform monthly site maintenance, an explanation of your website plugins, and how to make basic updates like changing out photos and updating text. I tailor this to your needs so let’s say you anticipate adding something to your site soon, I will send you a helpful video showing how to make this update so you are ready to go when the time comes! 

Show off your new website!

You can share your launch graphics with your social media following and I also love sharing my recent project on my Instagram. Shortly after your project, you will receive a brief feedback questionnaire. I use this information to refine my process and make improvements for future clients. And with your permission, I will utilize your testimonial in my marketing materials. 

The best part of all is a typical website takes only ONE week to design and launch!
