A website is a must for even small businesses as a place for potential/existing clients to go to learn more about the services/products that you offer.

Things to think about

To be able to build a fully functioning website in Wix there are a couple of things to think about before we get started. 

Not Included:
wix premium subscription:

A Wix 'Premium Plan will need to be purchased for a personalised domain name to be connected.

Once the website design is completed it will be transferred over to your Wix account for you to assign the premium plan subscription to and connect your domain name.

Domain name + hosting:

Wix.com offer a free domain name for the first year when purchasing their premium plan, which may be worth considering (subject to change). Alternatively there are a number of sites that you can purchase a domain name from. Domain names will need to be purchased separately by yourself. I would suggest your purchase this as soon as you have the name you would like to use. I would advise going for an address that ends with .com or .co.uk if possible (as they hold more trust with an audience).

copywriting:

All of the copy (text) content that you would like included in the website needs to be provided. This is usually best coming from you as the owner of the business. Alternatively there are people that you can hire to do copywriting.

images:
All of the images that you would like included in the website will need to be provided. If you don't have your own images there are a number websites where you can purchase stock images. Wix also offers a link to 'Unsplash' from which you can use free stock images. It is best to have these ready to go at the beginning of the project.
logo + branding:

To make sure the website shows your visual identity I will need a copy your logo (Colour and Black & White versions) along with the references for the colours of the brand. If you need any help with this please see my Logo + Branding Service page. 

 

new website process

 

1

If you are interested in working with me, please get in touch to discuss availability, requirements and timescale.

4

Using the information you have provided I will conduct my own research into the project and put together some ideas.

7

Throughout the process I will send links to the site so you can see the progress and so I can hear your comments. 

2

You'll receive a free quote detailing an agreement of deliverables plus an invoice for the deposit (50%) to secure your spot.

5

Before the start of the design work we will have a Clarification Call to run through your requirements and the process, to make sure everything is covered.

8

Once the final design is completed and you are happy, I will send over an invoice for the 50% balance before the transfer to your account. 

3

On receipt of the deposit I'll send you my Content Questionnaire to be completed and returned, as soon as possible.

6

I will start work on the design of the website and put together the structure of the pages and add in the brand colours and fonts - then populate.

9

Once you take ownership of the website you can then 'assign' the Premium Plan that you have purchased to the design. 

 

Frequently asked questions

What are Wix 'Premium' Plans?


Wix is a subscription based platform - where for a monthly fee they will host and allow you to make edits to your website. They offer different 'Premium' Plans depending on your requirements. In order to connect a personalised domain name and remove ads you will need to subscribe. If you want to take bookings and payments through your website you would require a 'Business & eCommerce' plan. The choice of plan is up to you - so it is always best to have a good look through what is included and make sure that the plan matches your requirements. Go to www.wix.com/upgrade/website to see what plan suits you best.




Do I need to create my own Wix Account?


Yes! You will need your own Wix account to be able to purchase a Premium Plan and accept the transfer of the website once it is complete.

  1. Go to www.wix.com
  2. Click in 'Get Started'
  3. Then 'Sign Up' - if you don't already have an account.




How do I take ownership of my website?


Once I have completed the website design I will send a link for you to review and let me know if you require any further edits. Once you have confirmed you are happy I will send across an invoice for the 50% balance. On receipt of the payment I will transfer the ownership of the site to your Wix account. Once you have accepted the ownership you will be able to assign your Premium Plan and then connect your domain name. If you keep me on as an administrator through this process I will still be able to help in the process.




How long does it take to build my website?


This really depends on what you want your website to include and the availability of all of the content. If you have a date that you are working towards then it is best that we discuss availability and you requirements before getting started.




Can I make changes to my site once it is completed?


Once the ownership is yours it is your website to do with as you please, after all that is the reason that I create websites in Wix so that once the site is built you are able to then run it. I will provide you with some handover notes to get you started and help with basic edits.




What if I need some more help after we are done?


I will provide some handover notes on the transfer of the website. After that if you are looking for any more edits, I charge my hourly rate with a minimum of an hour charge.




Which Wix Premium Plan should I go for?


It is entirely up to you which premium plan you should go for, as it will be your subcription. It is worth reading through what the different plans offer you, as there are some that will allow you to do more than others, for example if you want to accept bookings and payments through your site. More information about the plans available can be found here: www.wix.com/upgrade/website




Do you need access to my Wix Account?


I create the website design in my own Wix account, this enables me full control over the design and we don't run the risk of confusing the Wix editor by two people editing the site at the same time. Once the website is complete I will transfer the ownership of the site over to your account. You will then need to assign the premium plan and connect your domain name. I would suggest that I stay on as an 'administrator' during the transfer period, that way I will still be able to make edits etc. Once you take ownership of the website you have full control over who is allowed access.
