WEB DESIGN PROCESS
Each website project has Four steps. 1.) The client will send WebsiteItUp the completed content (text and pictures). Once WebsiteItUp has received all the content for the website we will then proceed to loading the content, designing and building the website. 2.) WebsiteItUp will then ask you to look over the first draft and send us any revisions, we will make the revisions you requested and have you look over the website one more time and send us any final revisions to make. 3.) If at this point the client would like to make more revisions after the initial two included in their original quote amount, the client will be charged an hourly rate of $65 with a minimum of 1 hour. After all revisions are made the final payment will be requested. 4.) Upon receiving payment we will then make the final revisions as well as teach you how to add future content and update your webpage on your own.
