The web design Process
The jump-start marketing and web design process is tried-and-tested with no ‘surprises’ or ‘hidden extras’.
I follow the same process with every client, but understand the needs of every business is different.
Stage 1 - Research, strategy and planning
Developing your business proposition and doing the necessary research and planning will set your business apart from the rest.
In stage 1, I’ll consult with you to lay the correct foundation for digital success.
Specifically, you’ll receive help with:
Narrowing down your target audience
Running a competitor analysis
Developing your product or service’s unique selling point (USP)
SEO research to define your keyword targeting strategy
Writing content for your business website (up to 6 pages), with your input
Stage 2 - Set-up and Implementation
Many new business owners choose a beautiful or free website over a functional and effective website and eventually realise that after family and friends have visited their website, visitors begin to dwindle.
Web design is as much a science as it is an art form. In stage 2, I’ll set-up all the tools you’ll need to track progress and engagement from the moment your website goes LIVE.
Specifically, you can expect me to:
Collect your information to register your business accounts
Register your domain name, if you don’t already have one

Set up your Google Analytics and Google Search Console accounts
Register your business with Google My Business
Select a Squarespace website design and help you choose suitable brand colours
Create a typographic logo for you and select the suitable fonts for your business
Source royalty free stock images, and/or illustrations for your website
Stage 3 - Design
Now that the foundations are in place I’ll start incorporating all the elements that tell your brand story and optimise your new site to appear in search engines.
Specifically, I will:
Design your website incorporating all content, copy, calls-to-action, forms and any other features agreed in stage 1
Optimise your website for search engines using your targeted keywords (Google, Bing, Yahoo)
Test all links, forms and features on your website
Stage 4 - Proofing
At this stage your website is ready for you to view and provide feedback.
You’ll receive 2-3 opportunities to make suggestions before your new website is made LIVE.
This is a great time to get feedback from your customers.
Specifically, I will:
Invite you to review the first draft of your website
Collect your feedback and make the required changes
Invite you to review the second draft of your website
Collect your feedback and make the final changes (if required)
Publish your website
Stage 5 - Delivery
Your website is live and ready for you to share and promote. Your integrated marketing plan’s core objective will be to drive visitors to your website.
After 6 months of your website being live, we will review your website’s organic performance and I’ll consult with you on the various options to continue its growth.
Specifically, I will:
Transfer full ownership of your new Squarespace website to you
Deliver your new brand assets including social media banners and your typographic logo
Send you all your login details for your new accounts
