THE PROCESS

 

Your website is a part of your whole marketing approach. It should dovetail nicely with your company logo, colors, and your ideals.

 

When planning your site we will consider several aspects:

 

  • River Tree will begin by drawing up a couple of design ideas based on the initial consultation and then discuss changes with the client. We feel the client should have as much control over their site as they desire.

 

  • After the initial consultation, where River Tree finds out what the specific needs are for your site, we will send a written estimate with an outline of work requested.

 

  • If design changes are made to the project after it has been approved, there will be an addendum to the original estimate reflecting any additional time. Invoices are billed and payable on a monthly basis based on the work accomplished. We have found this is helpful for the client who is keeping an eye on costs and/or may have delays for one reason or another.

 

  • You may observe the progress of your site from a temporary site.

 

  • On large projects a deposit of 50% of the initial estimate is suggested after a design is approved.  We have found that payments through the Secure PayPal site works best for online payments.

 

  • DON'T FORGET ABOUT MAINTENANCE. A web site is a living thing. It needs to change frequently or it will die. Ask about River Tree's training classes and/or maintenance fees.
