Can I make updates to my own website?
Websites developed with SMG Web Design come with Content Management Systems (CMS) so that you can sign in and make updates to your website. We will train you on how to do this once the website is completed. Many of our customers prefer to sign up for ongoing updates and support by us as well.
What is the process if I sign up with you?
Once you decide to hire SMG Web Design for your website, we would set up a meeting, either in person or via phone, to discuss and sign a contract, set-up the payment plan, and discuss what the website needs and desires are. From this initial meeting, we will create a website summary that outlines the website objectives, target market, design, pages, content, features, and domain name. This summary will be provided to you and is also used as the outline to design and develop your website. Once the summary is approved, you will then provide any needed content to us to use. During the development phase, you will be provided a link where you can observe your website being developed and offer any input and provide additional content along the way. Once the website is completed, there is a final meeting where we review the website and you are given training and instructions on how to use it. We then make the website live.
