Professional Blog/Website Presence Package
If you are looking for a professional looking and functioning website presence for your business, I can help you achieve it. Whether you’re a business looking to engage readers, a blogger with your own domain or if your just starting out on the web, I can add that professional touch you and your readers deserve.
Custom Packages range from $500.00 – $1700.00
The items below are included in every package, however, it will be tailored to your specific needs and desires for your site. At every milestone throughout this process, we will meet to ensure your needs are being met.
- Personal Consultation
I will provide a personal consultation to understand the requirements you have for your blog or website. From this consultation, I will prepare a quote for your site and forward it to you for review along with a communication, testing, and implementation timeline. Upon payment of 1/2 of the quote amount, work will commence on your new site. Only after you are fully satisfied will you pay the remainder of the quote.
- Web Host Recommendation
If necessary, I will recommend a host for your site/blog, register a domain name, and perform the ‘back office’ work necessary to prepare your host for your site/blog. If you already have a domain name, I can perform the work necessary to transfer it to a recommended web host.
- E-mail Setup and Configuration
Through your host, I will setup several e-mail addresses for you and, if necessary, others (if your site has multiple authors, for example). This will include personal and contact/administrator e-mail addresses.
- WordPress Installation
Following industry standards, I will install, configure and optimize WordPress.
- Theme Recommendations
I will investigate any themes you’re interested in and present others that will meet your unique requirements. I will then make a recommendation for you that will be a long term solution for you and your readers (Should the theme I recommend come with a cost, that cost will be deducted from my fee).
- Theme Installation and Customizations
Regardless of whether the theme is free or comes with a cost, nearly all will require some level of customization. With this in mind, I decided to include theme customizations in this package. Whether you want a wider sidebar or just don’t like the color of the headings in your theme, these customizations are included in the package.
- Plugins, Widgets and More
No WordPress site is complete without the advanced functionality provided by some of the best premium plugins available today. Your site will have all the plugins necessary to meet the functional needs and wants you identify plus several advanced features like feed publishing and marketing, social media integration, advanced content scheduling, and site optimization – all intended to make your experience publishing content to the internet a better one.
- Initial Content Publishing
I will design and publish up to 10 pages of provided content. Such information usually includes a Profile page, a Product page, and a Contact page. Any content you have prepared (text, images, graphics, audio, video, etc.) may be included in this initial content.
- Operational Tutorial
I will provide you a tutorial so that you will be comfortable publishing content to your site/blog. This will include how to add/format text and images on your posts, video and audio publishing (if necessary), scheduling the publishing of posts, and performing routine upkeep on your site (such as responding to your reader’s comments).
- The 1-Month Wish List
For a period of one month, you will use your new site and, hopefully, you and your readers will fall in love with it. There is likely to be some things you desire changed or wish we had addressed when we were putting your solution together. Make a list and, after one month, forward it to me and we will discuss these requirements. Most will be implemented without additional cost to you. If there should be an additional cost to your wish list item, I will notify you immediately to determine if you would like to proceed with the change. If you have a requirement in the first month that just can’t wait until the end of the month, contact me and I will see about scheduling the change as soon as possible.
- On-going Consultation
I don’t implement and run. I want to build a relationship with you and your site. I want your site to work for you, not the other way around.
