Both billing and building are done as a 4 step process, with each step being called “Milestones”.

I require a sign-off at each step/milestone.

Milestone #1

‘Mini’ round: I’ll produce the homepage of the site that puts forth the design of core elements of the website. This includes the main menu, footer, color scheme, fonts, etc. It will only consist of the homepage and none of the other pages. You then have a chance to give any comments or changes before moving onto the next phase.

Time allotted: 6-10 business days

Billing

Milestone Payment #1: 40% of entire scope of work is due.

Milestone #2

‘Full’ round: I’ll expand upon the Design Discovery phase and produce the full website, which includes all of the pages and all of the content. Similar to the Design Discovery, you’ll have sufficient chances to make changes, ideas, new photos, etc. before moving onto the next and final round.

Time allotted: 7-11 business days

Billing

Milestone Payment #2: 30% of entire scope of work is due.

Milestone #3

‘Final’ round: I’ll take the nuanced feedback from the Full Design, and produce the polished product. I then run the Final product through a Quality Assurance procedure, where I test and pass things like SEO, images, links, etc. After it passes the QA, this will again be surfaced for feedback.

Time allotted: 3-4 business days

Billing

Milestone Payment #3: 20% of entire scope of work is due.

Milestone #4

‘Launch’! I’ll run an intense QA to make sure every link, image, and word is correct. I’ll make sure all of the techie stuff is configured correctly and it’s all playing nicely together on the web.

Time allotted: 3-4 business days

Billing

Milestone Payment #4: 10% of remaining scope of work is due.

I always encourage questions if you have them! I’m here to guide you every step of the way, so please don’t hesitate if something is unclear.
