Web Presence Workshop

From Concept to Blueprint

A good website is crucial for business growth, but it needs a solid plan to engage visitors and drive sales. Your plan should consider goals, target audience, and value offered to customers. Without a plan, your website won’t reach its full potential. Without it, having a website is like having a boat without a steering wheel – it may look great, but you won’t be able to take it where you want.

“Having had dreadful experiences with web developers in the past, I approached the task of rebranding and rebuilding my eCommerce website with trepidation. However, working with Wild Spirit Development has been a game-changer. Their strategic approach and expertise erased my fears. Over the past three years, they’ve not only revamped my website but have also become my long-term partner, maintaining and updating it, brainstorming new promotional ideas, and ensuring my business reaches its target audience. I’m thrilled with their knowledge, diligence, and commitment to my business’s success. I won’t consider anyone else for my future projects.”

Step 01.
Step 02.

Estimate

  • Step 02.

We will be following up with you via email to provide a rough estimate of the price and timeline for your project based on our past experience and your specific requirements. This will give you a better idea of what to expect and allow you to decide if you'd like to move forward with the project or not, with no obligation or pressure.

Web Presence Workshop

  • Step 03.

During this insightful 60-minute strategy consultation, we'll delve deep into your business, analyze  your competitors, and meticulously define your goals. Armed with these insights, our team will craft a comprehensive website blueprint packet, setting the stage for a unique digital presence that aligns perfectly with your vision. This workshop is a vital step towards shaping your online success, and we're excited to embark on it with you.

Step 03.
Step 05.

Proposal & Contract

  • Step 05.

Upon completing our Web Presence Workshop and should you choose to continue our partnership, our comprehensive proposal will be seamlessly integrated into the deliverables. Your journey with us will involve accepting the proposal, followed by the signing of the contract, and initiating your first payment to secure your project's reservation in our schedule. 

Client Portal

  • Step 06.

The initial step in our onboarding process involves inviting you to your dedicated client portal. To help you get acquainted with this platform, we'll provide a video tutorial guiding you through the login process. Within the portal, you'll have access to a wealth of resources, including the completed deliverables from our Web Presence Workshop, the sitemap, content planner, Slack link, and much more, ensuring a seamless and organized collaboration as we move forward.

Step 06.
Step 07.

Project Kick-Off

  • Step 07.

The project kick-off call is a pivotal moment in our collaboration. In this session, we'll define our respective roles and responsibilities to propel the project forward smoothly. We'll also discuss and plan for the essential assets, including written content, images, and other requirements, as we transition into the next phase of our partnership. This call is instrumental in ensuring a well-coordinated and effective project journey.

Design & Development

  • Step 08.

The fun begins. A COMING SOON page will be set as your home page including an opt-in form that allows your audience to sign up and be notified when the site is live. Your site is created with care and precision utilizing the information we have collected from conversations and the client portfolio you provided prior to starting work.

Step 08.
Step 09.

Review & Revision

  • Step 09.

During the design process, especially in the preliminary design phase, we like to work with you, rather than for you. We will remain in contact during this time to explore the design together. The design package you choose includes a set number of major revisions to the site itself. We will discuss each revision in detail before making changes.

Approval

  • Step 10.

After our 3 rounds of revisions, we will then go through the site once more as it's on a staging branch. Testing to see if the website functions as you want, looks as you want, and then is responsive on mobile and desktop devices. Once all approved, we will do final optimization to ensure that the performance of the website is preforming as it should for best user experience.

Step 10.
Step 11.

Launch

  • Step 11.

Once final payment has been received, will move your newly developed website off of our hosting to your hosting platform (unless we are hosting the website for you). We will test the site one more time to ensure that it is all working as it should. Once that's approved - time to share it with the world!
