Website Proposal

Let's Build The Website Of Your Dreams

Introduction
Dear Future Client, Thank you for contacting Lougenne Castillo of Gidital Solutions and choosing us for your freelance web designers.

“We don’t just build websites, we build websites that SELLS”

Dear Future Client,

Thank you for contacting Lougenne Castillo of Gidital Solutions and choosing us for your freelance web designers.

As we previously discussed, you are looking for an experienced designer to do high-quality work and make you look good online.

Lougenne Castillo is proficient in building long-term, collaborative relationships with clients and offers ongoing support for all the necessary adjustments and updates.

Overview

During our last meeting, you mentioned your main objective is to increase the number of visits and leads coming through the website.

The plan to achieve it is by doing the following:

  • Building mobile-friendly, lead-generating, WordPress website.
  • Providing on-site SEO audits to help you get found on the major search engines.
  • Creating a visually attractive website with interesting and engaging content.

Many web agencies are losing their touch while keeping up with every single one of the new tools out there. We are not working with Joomla, Drupal, Magento, etc. We are working in WordPress only, and we are the best at it.

In the next few chapters, we will explain further the details of our plan and how to achieve the mentioned objectives.

Beating your website competition

What Will We Do

We all know that clients nowadays explore their options online long before deciding to make a purchase. If your website doesn’t represent you properly, they will quickly move on to the next vendor.

That is why our goal is to create a professionally designed website that will fully enable you to compete more effectively with larger companies and direct competition.

The content we had in mind is the following:

Home Page

Using a friendly design for online readers, we will make sure the visitors do not just scan through the homepage but actually slow down and read the content.
It will also include a call-to-action button with clear links to the most important pages and the site map, leading visitors to the information they are looking for.

About Us

A clear description of who you are. Someone who ends up on your website should not have to do investigative work to figure out what, exactly, it is that you do.
We also suggest taking new team photos and action shots of people working. These are great for building relationships with clients and far better than the stock photos, which unfortunately litter your industry.

Client Stories and Testimonials

People love to hear stories from real customers.
Honest words from others help to make your services more tangible to customers who are visiting you online.
It is even better to create an actual case study, detailed explanations of projects you worked on, problems you encountered, and the solutions you proposed.
Give your testimonials some content, and they will serve you for years to come.

Services and Pricing

The best way to add the services you offer to the website is by splitting them into sections named after your main services and adding the matching headers.
Since you are offering monthly packages, we are suggesting creating a services page that will highlight the packages and individual services.
To avoid being constantly asked for prices by potential customers, we suggest adding a price on the same page as services. It helps to set the right expectation from both sides and increases the quality of the website.
If you preferred not to give away the prices right away, we would suggest considering a brief estimate at least.

Frequently Asked Questions

Another thing that will raise the quality of your website is adding a frequently asked questions section. We are sure your clients had a lot of questions while starting working with you. Why not add them all together and create a go-to page for all your future clients?

Contact Forms and Call To Action

To avoid potential clients from googling your name and trying to find a way to contact you, we suggest adding contact forms that will be directly forwarded to your email address.
We will also strategically place call-to-action buttons through the website to lead the visitors to either services and pricing page or to contact forms.

Why Choose Us

An essential component of a business website or marketing material, designed to highlight the unique value proposition and advantages that set the company apart from competitors. In this section, you typically want to convey the key benefits or reasons why potential customers should choose your products or services over others. This can include aspects such as quality, reliability, experience, affordability, customer service, innovation, or any other distinguishing factors that make your business stand out. The description should be concise, engaging, and tailored to resonate with your target audience, emphasizing what makes your brand the best choice for their needs.

Plan of Action

Process and Timescales

After you sign our proposal, we will start by scheduling a follow-up call to finalize the details and decide on the best starting date.

Once that is agreed on, we will follow the simple steps listed below

Design Interview

Step 1
To start our design project, we need to get to the bottom of who you are, what you stand for, and who you stand beside. It will give us enough basic information to get started with your website.

Design Presentation

Step 2
We will create three new design concepts. Naturally, there will be a common theme, but we will try to think outside of the box and develop a few different solutions. The brainstorming and comparison part is often where the best ideas come from. We will go through these options and decide which direction to take and which adjustments to make.

Website Content

Step 3
Now that we have your design decided on, we can begin to construct the website. Our copywriter will be in touch with you to help put your ideas down through the "voice" of your new brand. Any photos attempted to use on the website will have to be gathered at this stage.

Website Build

Step 4
Using everything we have gathered, we will start building your website. Once it is done, we will present it to you and go through the details and finishing touches following the originally set objectives. Any amends are made at this stage.

Launch

Step 5
We make sure to launch the website late on Fridays, giving us a chance to iron out any possible issues. You can sleep well, knowing we will be on-call over your launch weekend to ensure everything goes according to plan.
The launch process has to be carefully considered. We need to ensure email addresses will not go down; the site doesn't have any downtime; any old links are re-directed to the new pages, and several other things. The following process has been done by our company many times before, and we have developed a detailed checklist we are working with that has never failed.

Timescales - It will take between eight and ten weeks to get your high-end website live.

From our Portfolio

Case Study

Elizabeth Jones contacted us after she spent some time struggling with creating her website.
She has recently started a foundation and wanted to reach her targeted audience with an SEO optimized website, but didn’t know where to start. She knew what kind of content she wanted on it, but she did not have the time to create it all from scratch.

"So grateful for my new website, the finished product is fantastic."

The Solution

We identified what kind of content she wanted on her website and what kind of angle she wanted to take.
Our solution was to finish creating the website she already started to draft on her own and make it SEO optimized.
We added a different logo, few interesting animations showing her foundation’s results, and special graphics made in company colors.

The Result

After just a few weeks, her website was up and running. Within the first two months, the number of website visitors grew to over 3,000. After the second month, Elizabeth contacted us again, asking if we could run her blog as well. In our books, that counts as a happy customer!

A few words from Elizabeth: Working with Lougenne Castillo of Gidital Solutions was amazing. They are true experts at what they do, fast and professional. Ana was able to get my project vision the very first time. I struggled to complete the website for my foundation on my own, and it seemed as if they clicked a few buttons, worked their magic, and a masterpiece was created. By having Lougenne Castillo in our corner, we truly felt that our foundation launch was a huge success!" Elizabeth Jones, CCE Foundation

DIY websites can turn out to be very expensive in the long run.

You agree to review our work, provide feedback, and sign-off approval on time, and are bound by any deadlines that we set together.

Details of the work
We will create designs for the look, layout, and functionality of your website. This contract includes one main design and two opportunities for you to make revisions to the final design.

If instead, you wish to cancel our agreement, you may do so and we will retain the initial payment for the work completed to date.

HTML/CSS layout templates
We will develop using valid HTML5 markup and CSS3 for styling. We will test all our markup and CSS in current versions of all major browsers including those made by Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla, Google, and Opera. We will also test to ensure that pages will display visually in a similar — not necessarily an identical — way in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 for Windows as this browser is now past its sell-by date.
We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, 5.5, or 6 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera unless otherwise specified.

We are not responsible for writing or inputting any text copy. We will be happy to help, but significant work on our part will result in a charge above and beyond the original price. This will not be done without your approval of an additional quote provided in advance.

Photographs

If you do want to change your mind, add extra pages or templates, or even add new functionality, that won’t be a problem. At that time you will be provided with an additional quote for the extra work.
