Marketeering Group’s development department works with businesses large and small to build new websites, or transfer existing sites into WordPress, using the best design and development practices.

Our dev team follows a three draft process that typically takes about 6 to 8 weeks for a basic build. The first step is a consultation with a developer, where we review your preferences for the new site’s design, structure and functionality. We also help you make a plan for any needed website content, including text and photos, which can be provided by the client, or purchased as an add-on. You will have a chance to review and approve a sitemap and a couple website theme options before the build starts. You will then get two rounds of website drafts, review meetings, and revisions. After the second round of revisions, you will receive a third and final draft for approval. Then we will launch your new website!

The basic site build includes one WordPress website with up to 10 static webpages and a basic contact form. Additional pages or website functionality can be purchased as add-ons. Functionality is custom quoted after a discussion of specific client needs.

Examples of our work:

  • To start the process, you will receive a list of pre-development questions, which should be used to gather your thoughts about initial input on your site wants & needs.
  • A developer will then schedule a Website Discovery Meeting with you to discuss your business and goals, as well as your answers to the pre-development questions.
  • After discussing your pre-dev answers, the developer will pick a couple theme options and send them to you for review, along with a proposed sitemap. This typically happens within a week of the initial meeting.
  • There is an optional phone meeting available here, if you wish to discuss the theme options and sitemap in more detail.
  • If applicable, the developer will also send you a list of content needs, and a photographer will reach out to schedule a photoshoot this first week.
  • After you choose a theme and approve the sitemap, the developer will complete a first draft of the website and send it to you for review. This typically happens 3-4 weeks after the theme is chosen, or two weeks after all content is received (if later).
  • A first draft review meeting is then scheduled. During this meeting, we will go through the entire draft in detail and discuss any change requests, test out different styling options, if needed, and create a second draft to-do list.
  • The developer then completes a second draft and sends it to you for review, typically 2 weeks after the first review meeting.
  • A second draft review meeting is then scheduled to discuss any last revisions.
  • The developer then completes the third draft, which includes up to two hours of minor revisions, and sends it to client for final approval to launch the site. This typically happens 1 week after second review.
  • If more revisions are needed at that point, they are charged hourly at $75 /hr.
  • Once the final draft is approved, we launch the site on your choice of hosting platform.

The timeline is about 8 weeks total, but could be slightly more or less depending on scheduling for meetings, and, if applicable, any separate timelines for content (photos and text) that needs to be created.

The timeline is also dependent on the client’s schedule, as delays in scheduling meetings or photoshoots, or in receiving any needed info about the business during the process may create delays.

Any additional functionality will increase the base timeline. The new timeline will be detailed in the custom functionality quote.

Photo Content:

Should you need photos for the launch of the new website, you may either purchase a photo shoot or purchase stock photos. Both options are additional expenses not included in the website development fee.

Written Content:

Should you need written content for the launch of the new website, you may either provide us with the content, based on a list of needs provided by the developer, or you may purchase the content from our content writers for an additional charge.

Special Functionality:

The base site build includes one basic contact form and one basic slider for the homepage. Any additional functionality will be an add-on charge, which will be custom quoted based on the client’s specific needs. There is a $225 initial charge for additional functionality, which includes consultation and research time to figure out client needs and put together a build plan. The client will then be sent a custom quote based on the build plan, which will include charges for any paid tools as well as extra development time needed for the build. No additional functionality work will be completed until the client approves the quote.

Product/Reporting:

  • Marketeering Group’s developer will report on the progress of the WordPress site build via email.
  • The developer will note progress of the major site build checkpoints in our project management system for you to access.
  • We will confirm your approval of installation of all new written content, photo content, and special functionality with you via email and, if billable, add the appropriate services to your invoice.

Limitations:

  • Marketeering Group does not manage or host email. Should you decide to use our hosting, you agree that email management will be performed separately.
  • Marketeering Group is not responsible for the caching issues or settings conflicts of your personal or business devices.
  • Copying a perfect replica of your current website may require additional fees for plug-ins and/or labor, depending on the scope of the project. Waiver of this service is available, but will not result in any discount in website fees.
  • We will not grant access to view the development site until the first draft is complete. You will not have access to the back end of the site during development.
