What do I need to do to in order to have you help me start my own web site?
If you have no idea what any of this information means or how to acquire it, ask me to help you.
You will need (to):
How long does it take for you to build a website for me?
This depends on my schedule and work load at the time you contact me. I will let you know my availability and estimated time frame that I can work on your site. A website can be built in a week's time; however most people are not prepared to provide me with their content, and one week often turns into a month or more. Things I will need to know or need you to have in order to give an estimate for the time it will take to build, once I start work:
You can see why it's good to start email contact as early as possible with a web designer, so you can start to iron out your needs!
When my website goes live, will you still be my webmaster?
The Intentions of CMS (your Weebly site) is to allow you to take over editing your site after I build it! So you will be your own webmaster, in a manner of speaking.
Discuss with me in advance of working with me, to let me know your level of confidence in taking over the edits. You may need a full time webmaster if you are unwilling to try logging in and editing your own site. This discussion will help me determine if you need a full time webmaster or if you can handle the weebly site editing yourself. It IS designed for ease of use.
I will still be available to contact if you get stuck editing your own site. I may not be available immediately, 24/7/365 if you have a sudden issue but you can feel free to contact me for assistance. No edits you make will go live until you click the orange publish button after making your edits in a weebly site, so don't panic if you have messed something up while editing in your account.
Scheduled Webmaster Service - is ultimately my plan. To schedule in advance, or in other words make an appointment for when I'll be available to do a new web site build; or site edits. In an emergency, as long as I'm near a computer and have access to my email to see that you've contacted me, I may be able to help you in a pinch. Otherwise, try to do the edits yourself, first. If you experience some problem doing the edits, contact me.
Do you have any website "packages" to offer for a one time, flat fee?
Yes I would be willing to give you a flat fee for a small web site. Certain requirements and restrictions would apply. Contact me for details.
Do you offer discounts to 501(3)(c) Non-Profit Organizations?
Yes. Send me your non profit information and contact me with a description of your needs.
Do you only build websites at Weebly?
Yes. I used to build websites to be hosted 'anywhere.' However, Weebly has templates already designed and ready to use; ready to customize with your own banner, colors and more. It's part of my streamlining the work load. I can edit the template banner, if you choose to have a banner, to customize it to your own needs. I can edit the colors of title texts, hyperlink text, and more, as needed. But the template is otherwise ready to start building the site content and it's all fast and easy to use. An enormous "Plus" for you is that Weebly templates are also mobile device ready. You won't need a second website or special coding to create a site that can be viewed easily on mobile phones and other devices. It saves YOU a great deal of money and saves me a great deal of time. And freeing up my time while still being able to offer website building and editing assistance is what my new service structure is all about.
