Nextfly’s Step By Step Design Process

While a lot of the individuals who call into Nextfly already have websites, there is a great number of people that call in that don’t. Many of these people do not know where to start. Even individuals that already have a website may have the wrong expectation of what the steps are and how long they can take.

While we have a good idea of how long the average website can take, this also depends on the response time in all communication and information needed. With most of our sites, the turnaround time is 60 to 90 days for a full website; however, there are other things that could speed up the process. If you already have the content ready, this can knock 7 to 14 days off of the time it takes to load content and images.

Intro Call/ Meeting – Generally this is the first step in starting a relationship between Nextfly and our prospective client. This call is usually an investigative call to learn more about or company or the process. This is generally initiated by the individual in need of a website.

During this call, we may go over what is needed on their website. That could be special functionality, the number of pages, the website platform needed, or even whether or not it will be a template or custom. After our call, we will send over a proposal with a quote or two. Then once you decide if you would like to move forward with Nextfly, we will send over a contract and invoice to get started. Once those are returned, we will set up a Kick-off Call!

Kick-Off Call– During this call, we will go into more depth about the overlook desired for your new website. We will also take about your target audience and who you are gearing your website towards. Here you can let us know if you have a branding guide or specific colors that you are looking to use.

What Type of Website & Timeline is Best for You?
