How Does Build Your Online Web Design Process Work?
Step by step, we will keep you informed. Here’s what you can expect once you agree to have Build Your Online bring your company into the digital age with a high quality web design and/or development:
A free consultation
We will discuss your web design project. We will find out what you’ve done previously and what you hope to accomplish from your website now and into the future, as well as learn about your business in general. Our experience will help us to make suggestions and brainstorm ideas for your website. If you have a vision for your site, please share! We will get the creative juices flowing and talk about your brand and “look”. We can even provide your company with a newly designed logo if needed. This conversation can happen in person, over the phone, or by email – whichever is most convenient for you.
Complete proposal and fair contract
Our proposal will include everything that we will accomplish with your website, along with all costs and services itemized so it’s easy for you to see what will be delivered. Our contract is clear and easy to understand. At the time that you accept our proposal, 1/2 of the project cost is due along with our signed contract.
We will give you a new look
If this is a new website or a re-design, we will first design the layout of your website. We will revise your design until you are delighted with your new look. It is important to us that we get this right – this will be your potential clients’ first impression of your business! Once we have your written approval on the design, we will proceed to develop the website using that design. Any changes that you make to the design after this point may incur additional cost.
Our development work will begin
Once we have your written approval on the design, we will proceed to develop the website pages and functionality using that design. This is when we need things from you, such as images, text content for your pages, and approval on the progress of the website. Any delay in receiving this information from you may delay the timeframe of the project. Once we have the site well underway, we will send you a link on our server so you can see the progress and understand what content we need from you.
Your website will go live!
When we finish with your website development, you will be asked for written final approval to go live. You will be able to see your entire website as it will look online. Once you approve your website, the remainder of the project cost is due. At this time we will make your website live and you are open for virtual business!

BYO did an overall fantastic job, hands down. Communication from the first initial meeting, through the website construction, and follow ups after the site was created was great. I was thoroughly involved and had my questions answered in a way that I could understand. I could feel that BYO truly cared for my needs and wanted to deliver the best site possible. No doubt would I recommend them to anyone.Ray Weed
What is your turn around time?
What do your websites cost?
The short answer: Our prices depend on so many factors, it’s impossible to say in one sentence. Avoid any web developer who can answer this question without a long talk. Our typical range of services are $3,000-$15,000 and include much more then a website.
The long answer: To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build simply give us a call or email. We’ll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we’ll be able to give you a ballpark figure. If you’re still interested, we’ll come to your place of business and come up with a firm quote.
If you talk to a web developer who gives you an instant quote, run away! Imagine telling someone you want a car and having them immediately giving you a price for that car. Any fair and honest car salesperson would want to know the make, model and engine type of the car you’re looking to purchase, right? The same goes for building web sites.

Social Media and Email Marketing Services
Once your website is live, it’s not over (sorry!). A website is not something you check off your list as completed and never have to think about again. For your business to thrive, and to take advantage of your nice new web design, you will want to use all of the marketing tools at your disposal. Social media has become an inexpensive and very effective marketing tool for your website and your business. We can help you set up social media accounts such as Facebook,Twitter, and Google+ and teach you how to manage them to get great results. We offer email marketing tools so that you can send out email blasts to your contact list on a regular basis letting them know your current specials, new services, or relevant tips and tricks. You will be the first one they think of when they are in need of your services.
