Custom Website Design

Our Web Design Services

Your website is the digital home for your business.  It's your 24/7 salesperson.  When somebody wants to work with you or buy from you, your website should be the first place they go to, which should be able to tell them everything they need to know about working with you or buying from your business.

Your website should look professional, provide lots of valuable information to your potential customers and clients, and should help build trust with your audience.  You only get one shot to make a good first impression— and that goes for your business' website, too. 

 

At Thrive Design Co, we build websites that are responsive on all devices (mobile traffic accounts for over 50% of all internet traffic!), backed by SEO, and designed with your brand's personality, voice, and messaging, and most importantly— your dream clients and customers in mind.

An Overview of Our Website Design Process

preparation

We'll start with a 30-minute discovery call to go over your project, and what your goals are, and determine which services would benefit you the most.  We'll talk about your ideal start date, and what we'll need to get started.  Once I've set up your client portal, you'll sign the contract and pay your non-refundable 50% deposit to lock in your date on my calendar.  Depending on the scope of your project, you'll have some homework to complete no later than one week prior to our start date. 

design

Once your start date gets here, you'll get an email from me the morning of, letting you know that I'm getting started, and letting you know when you can expect me to check-in.  Throughout the duration of the project, I'll regularly check in with you and ask for feedback and revisions.  Once the branding is done,  we're ready to launch your new, amazing website into the wild.

launch

It's launch day!  To prep for launch day, we'll make sure every page of your website functions properly, all buttons are working, everything looks amazing, and it's ready to get found online by your dream clients & customers.  Depending on which package you chose, you'll then receive a video walkthrough of your new website and how to make edits and updates, or we'll schedule a meeting, and we'll connect your domain, connect Google Analytics & Search Console, and I'll send you a few mockups of your new website for you to show off on social media!  We'll launch your new website, and you can feel confident and proud of your business.

Book a VIP Day

A VIP Day is a one-day intensive where we complete your project in one 8-hour time frame, as opposed to the typical multiple weeks-long processes.  What are the main differences between a VIP Day versus a standard website project?  Good question!

A VIP Day is called an intensive for good reason.  That's because we're intensively working on your project, and your project only, for 8 hours, instead of a full-on branding project or website project that takes weeks, with multiple rounds of feedback and revisions, lots of back and forth, etc.  Your final deliverable(s) are paired down a bit.  Your project will have fewer revision rounds and will need you to be available all throughout the VIP Day for timely feedback.

 

For example, you can get a one-page website or a mini-brand identity done on a VIP Day, amongst a lot of other things!  You get your branding or website project done and delivered by the end of our VIP Day.  Keep scrolling to see what else we can accomplish together.
