Step-By-Step Website Creation Process

How it's done, STEP BY STEP!

STEP 1: Opening Your New WIX.COM Account !

After your website contract is official, the first step is, that I will open your WIX account with your preferred business email address. ( address you'd like to receive inquiries from your site.) I will create a "shared password" that you can change later.

STEP 2 : Template Choice & Site Permissions

A.) After hearing about your business and website vision, I can begin by choosing a template in that style, to start off. ( I will then customize).

B.) I will also send myself an"invitation" to collaborate on your site with you that goes to my personal account. I assign myself as your "Web Designer". This role will NOT have financial permissions. After initial set-up I work solely from my own account and not yours.

FYI: You can also add invite other collaborators to have access to your site. Here's How:


Before I can really "dig in" to designing your site, I will need YOUR CONTENT emailed to me. If you have any special photos, logo, biography, town photos, staff photos, products etc.....get them ready!

Then, in a word document, please send any copy for your designated descriptions on the pages of your site. Info such as:

STEP 4 : Designing & Getting Your Feedback

Now is the fun part for me! I will layout your site using your content as inspiration for the "look and feel" of your site. I will layout out the # of pages ordered, place any special functioning parts, buttons, APPS, etc...and share with you through Wix's FREE DOMAIN "link" which is immediately published and "sharable". You can "spy" on me as I design...it's OKAY! I will ask for approval on the style of the site, and make any changes needed with color or overall feel, from your first initial impression.

After layout is established, 2 ROUNDS OF EDITS are INCLUDED in your Website Order.

The first round can be more "major" and then the second to be "minor"/ fine tuning.

Beyond the 2 rounds, any extra revisions or major changes, there will be an extra edit fee added to the order. Usually based on an hourly rate.

STEP 5 : SEO, Page Titles, Descriptions Etc...

Beyond how attractive the site looks or what functions it has, we want your site to look good when it comes up on searches like GOOGLE. So the behind the scenes part I also handle, is writing your page descriptions, titles, using KEY WORDS, creating short cut images, site favicon, bookmark icon, connecting to Google through GMAIL and probably other details that I'm forgetting as I type this!


When your site is nearly ALL complete, it will be time to upgrade your site to a PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION WITH WIX, and CONNECT A DOMAIN! This is when you will LOG IN to your Wix account and follow steps to:


"COMBO" is recommended for 14.00 per month.***This all depends on what type of site function you need! ( Do you have extra APPS added?) But for simple site function "COMBO" is the way to go and is a great price.


B.) Connect, Buy, or Transfer Your Domain

After you get that PREMIUM PLAN, Wix will let you connect your domain. The simplest way is to BUY a domain right in WIX, or to "CONNECT" to a domain you bought elsewhere, and then just a tad more tricky is to "TRANSFER" a domain away from another website host:


**Your domain cost is FREE your first year! Then, around 10-20.00 per year, depending.

Here is a video tutorial on how to buy or connect a domain:

C.) Upgrading Any Special APPS You Ordered (If Applicable)

Then, one of the final steps would be for any SPECIAL APPS added, such as reviews, booking, real estate app, appointments, payments etc... to be UPGRADED ( by you/financial permission ) and SET- UP through me. There are some APPS that require quite a bit of detail connecting, filling in information, color/designing the template etc...and seems to only be accessible AFTER all the upgrading is finished, and connection can be made.

Apps such as Boom Events, or the Real Estate App vary in cost and have “ levels” of function.

Anywhere from an extra 5.00 per month to 20.00. Please ask for a quote.
