Design Process Steps
Step 1 - Initial Design / Layout Phase:
Once you have selected a design package or approved a custom quote prepared especially for you, and paid the retainer fee, we'll ask you for several items so we can move
forward. A design is the color scheme and overall graphical layout of what your new web site or re-design will look like ... how it
is arranged and such.
We will also need the name of the domain you are wanting us to purchase on your behalf, and the mailing address and phone number you wish to declare with this domain (if applicable).
When sending the information outlined above, please make sure that you know what you want. It is imperative that you have some idea of the way you want your web site to
look as we do not provide endless design samples for free. Take your time and determine what you like before you begin this first step of the design process. If we have to prepare
more than 3 design samples for you, you may be charged an additional fee for the extra time needed to work up a final design for you.
Finalizing and signing off on your design will be completed in this step so that your site can begin to be coded. No site will be built nor coded until the final design is complete and approved.
Step 2 - Site Content and Navigation:
In this phase of your project, we ask you to provide us with layout of your site. This means that we'll need each page link that you plan to have on your site ... which is also known as the "navigation" of your site. At this time, you should also gather up and forward to us all site content in standard text format, i.e., MS Word file, text file, standard email message, etc. Site content is the information that each page of your site will contain. The content should be well laid out, when sending to us for incorporation, with easy instructions as to what information goes where on your site.
Step 3 - Site Coding and Content Implementation:
In this phase of your project, your site's coding will be implemented and the site fully constructed. We will create and code all pages of the site, the navigation, and any other coding aspect of your site. We will place all content that you have forwarded to us on the pages and construct the site in its entirety. This phase will as well consist of only 2 free rounds of revisions to the content of the site only.
At this point in the development, it is too late to make any changes to the design/layout of the site without incurring additional fees. This includes changing of any graphics, colors or schemes, or any other change to the design of the site. By the time we reach this step, you will have been given your 2 free rounds of revisions to the design, and will have approved the design, before the site was built. If you still decide you want to make a change to your already approved design, and the changes you request are substantial, we may require you to pay the remaining balance on your final invoice before the requested changes will be made, or at least pay 50% of what will become your "new" final balance, due to the changes requested.
Step 4 - Completion of Site:
Upon completion and approval of the site, the final remaining balance on your account is required. All web sites remain on our web servers until the account is paid in-full. No domain rights, nor passwords to web site hosting nor any other items will be turned over to customer until customer's final invoice is paid in-full.
After Project Completion - Changes/Updates Cost:
Statement of Liability
In no way should you advertise or promote your web site or project until it is complete. Completion is defined as the final review of your web site/project, and final payment on your account.
The NET Group will make every effort to have the project finished by indicated time frame; but in no way will
The NET Group be held liable for any loss of advertisement nor profits to
you, nor any third party, for not meeting
indicated completion time frame. Situations beyond our control sometimes affect our being able to work on projects, i.e., winter storms, loss of power, thunderstorms,
natural disasters, etc. The completion time frame is an approximate time and should never be confused with any other meaning.
