ABOUTSmart Pop Media specializes in helping individuals and small businesses establish a professional presence on the web.
For me, creating a new website is always an exciting venture! But for those not familiar with the process, it can seem a bit overwhelming at first glance. I’ve found it helpful to have a ‘trail map’ describing the steps of how your website will be created. With this as a guide, you can easily visualize where we are in the process of completing your beautiful new website.
You’ve had a great FREE consultation where you shared your business needs and got your initial questions answered. You were emailed a work quote, were delighted with services offered at affordable rates and have decided to go ahead and hire Smart Pop Media to create a smashing new website for you. You’ve signed the work agreement and your initial payment has been completed.
We’ve confirmed you have a domain name registered and web hosting set up. You’ve emailed me your business contact phone number, address and desired email address.
Your business branding style is clarified. You’ve emailed me examples of websites that share elements of the vibe you want to express through your own brand.
Here’s where the real fun starts! I’ve emailed you a list of template options that match your branding and you’ve chosen the one you like best. I’ve also emailed you a list of possible stock photos for you to choose from if you don’t already have high quality photos for your business. If you’ve hired me to take professional photos for you, we’ll do those now.
I begin building out the foundational structure of your website while you work on your text copy and procure any media or content that we haven’t gathered in Step 4. You supply me with your logo or I create a logo if you’ve opted for that service.
You’ve confirmed page titles, structure and basic content of your website. These features continue to be tweaked during step 7 and 8 as we iterate your website towards it’s finished form.
All the pages have been set up and I’ve plugged in all photos, copy and other content as I’ve received them from you. The copy-editing & proofing service that comes included with every web package is applied as I suggest edits for smoother, more readable copy, if needed.
Your site has been fleshed out and a preview link sent to you. You’ll hit the ‘refresh’ button in your browser to see latest updates on your site as your heart beats in excitement seeing your new website so close to completion. Filled with the highest quality graphics and clear to the point copy & content, final tweaks and edits are made as requested.
All the content is finished and finalized. You LOVE your new site and can’t wait to share it with your customers!
If you chose a WordPress package, you’ve received a FREE 1 Hour training on how to maintain and make basic edits to your site. Now you’re off to the races!
