Three Stages

As we work together to develop your website, I have organized the tasks necessary to build your website into three stages. In each stage there are tasks for both of us to complete on time in order for us to meet your desired website delivery date. I have outlined both of our responsibilities on this page so that you have a better idea of what is involved with launching a website.

Stage 1 - Discover

If we determine during our consultation appointment that Squarespace is the right platform for you I will send you my proposal, contract and an invoice for the 20% deposit. Please sign the documents and pay the invoice, both online.

Stage 2 - Develop

Once the deposit has been paid, you will receive an email with a link to an online questionnaire. This questionnaire includes detailed instructions and guidelines for how to prepare and upload the content for your website. Please complete the questionnaire and upload your files before the develop start day.

During this stage it is best for both of us to designate at least two days free of other commitments to focus on the important parts of your website. I will send you a few options of focused website work days for you to review and select the dates that work best for you.*

*I understand that taking time off from your work can be difficult but these focused days on your website will pay dividends back in the future. We can make other arrangements if you are not able to set aside two consecutive days. We can chat more about this during the initial presentation and consultation.

Day 3 - Deliver

Please ensure that you are available for feedback on our agreed days, this part is very important for a smooth process and on-time launch. I’ll do the work and then on the deliver day you will have a new beautiful website! 


As your guide I will:

  • Invite you to a Dropbox Paper document that will serve as our collaboration tool for developing content and gathering image assets.

  • Select the best Squarespace template and design for your website based on your stated styling preferences and business needs.

  • Organize your content to best promote your business and services.

  • Be available for unlimited support and communications for three full dedicated days of focused development.

  • Deliver a training video that will empower you to make updates to your website.


This is your website, before we begin, you will:

  • Send me everything I need on time so that I can start on the date we agree upon.

  • Fill out a detailed questionnaire regarding your styling preferences, functional requirements and business needs.

  • Provide all the text content, that you will fill out in our shared Dropbox Paper documents

  • Provide images and graphics from your own photos, a professional photographer, or royalty free images from Unsplash.
