When designing your website, there are many things I have to do before we begin. First, I need to get to know your business and the services you provide.

This approach lets me build a website that best showcases everything you have to offer. Therefore, one of the first things I will do is arrange a face-to-face meeting where we can discuss who your target market is, as well as who your competitors may be. This meeting will also allow me to understand what kinds of imagery and symbols may be best suited for your industry. The goal is to use this information to then focus on what aspects of a website will help impact your target market and bring in new business. Once I better understand your industry, we can start working on a design that will make an impact on potential customers and draw people in.

Responsive Website Design

You need a website that will work across every device, from tablets and smartphones to laptops and desktops. Most people these days are browsing more on their smartphones and tablets then the desktop.  Using a responsive website design will allow your website to work on many different platforms, providing potential customers with a user experience that will urge them to utilize your services. You don’t want to have customers excessively zooming, panning, and getting frustrated that your website is hard to use.

When we say responsive, we don’t mean a smaller scale version of your website but rather a functional version of it.

Got Questions?

Do I have provide ALAE Designs Content?

Yes. In the initial consultation, we will go over basic content layout of your website. ALAE will use research on your business to establish general content. Any specific content must be provided by the client. 

How long will it take for the website to be ready?

Each web design is unique and different. On average, your site could be ready in 4-6 weeks. It all comes down to how many pages, graphics and functionality. The more your site requires, the more time it takes. An ETA will be discussed during your consultation. 

What platform will my website be built on?

Unless you are looking for an e-commerce site like a Shopify build. Your website will be build on the WordPress platform.

What's your pricing model?

There are three main types of pricing models web designers use: hourly, value, and milestone.

Hourly pricing is just what it sounds like. The web designer has an hourly rate and they’ll bill for however many hours it takes to complete your project. I use use a time tracking app to keep everything transparent when working on your website.

Value pricing works out as a flat rate for the entire project. Instead of charging you hourly, they charge you a set price for the value they are bringing to your business by creating a website for it.

Milestone pricing is like a hybrid of both. You will be billed after completing each major phase of the web design process. For example, you may be invoiced after the Research, Design, Development and Launch phase.

Choosing which pricing method you prefer is ultimately up to whatever makes the most sense for your business. There’s no right or wrong way. Some web designers even employ a mix of all three.
