Is an alliance with the Warlocks right for you?

Though our skills are things of legend, we know that true magnificence can only be found when we can properly aid you on your quest.

Good Match

  • You are looking to begin, or take the next steps in, developing your online presence.
  • You are seeking an online solution that is specifically tailored to exemplify your own unique style, brand, and passions.
  • You are in need of experts to collaborate with who can help bring your visions to life.
  • You are in search of a reliable solution to lighten your burden of responsibilities and let you focus on what matters to you most.

Poor Match

  • You are simply looking for a quick website to push out.
  • You are only seeking patches or tweaks to be done to an existing website.
  • You are expecting a fully custom website to cost around the same as a templated solution.
  • You are not interested in collaborating on your project.

Our Formula

We’ve spent years honing and refining our craft.

We have established a tried and true process of what you can generally expect when working with us to develop your new website. Take a look at the details outlined below and let us know if you have any questions!

Stage 1:

Introduction

This is where we all have an opportunity to get to know one another a little better, discuss your goals and objectives, and determine what it is the Warlocks can do to help you.

Stage 2:

Discovery & Research

Shortly following the introductory discussion, we will dive right into learning, more specifically, what it is that you want and don’t want, and what you have seen that stands out to you also, as well as begin researching all of your available resources to gain an even better understanding of you and your brand.

Stage 3:

Planning & Strategy

Once a strong understanding of all of these critical details has been reached, we will work with you via whatever means are best (phone calls, emails, video calls, etc.) in order to establish a timeline and plan to move forward.

Stage 4:

Contract Review & Approval

It’s at this point where we will deliver a detailed timeline of the website development process along with a copy of the contract, which will be carefully designed for your unique needs, based on our previous discussions, and contain an outline of the exact cost of the project, for your review and approval.

Stage 5:

Asset & Content Collection

Once the contract has been approved, we will begin right away to collect assets and content (images, videos, credentials, written copy, etc.).

Stage 6:

SEO & Sitemap Creation

Almost simultaneously to collecting assets and content, we will begin the process of piecing together your sitemap (layout and page structure of your website) and SEO strategy (plan on how to be found online by search engines).

Stage 7:

Website Design

Next, using your unique theme, in addition to the items discussed in our previous conversations, we will start to create a design of your website that is as unique as your story and work with you to get it just right.

Stage 8:

Website Development

After completing and signing off on the design process, it’s time for the real magic to begin! Our team will start to breathe life into your vision and work with you to make sure it is meeting, and, hopefully, exceeding, expectations.

Stage 9:

Walkthrough & Discussion

With your incredible website now complete, we want to make sure you know the ins and outs of everything going on behind the scenes, along with what your site is capable of, as well as work with you on any questions you may have prior to pushing the website live.

Stage 10:

Continuous Growth & Beyond

Now that everything is up and running and you are beginning to share the good news, know that you are never alone! Not only will our team be taking care of regular maintenance and updates, but we are always available to work with you on changes to your website, content management, blog development or social media support.

Account Management

Project Manager

Communication and customer service are key! There are no call centers here. Each one of our clients is assigned a dedicated project manager to help them through our processes and be their point of contact for any needs. Unlike other companies that provide limited customer service, you’ll speak to the same knowledgeable marketing person each time who knows your project, goals, and objectives.

Working With The Team

Work directly with our team for a design collaboration process that will bring your story and ideas to life. We are here to build the website you want. We will ask you to complete a form that has been engineered to help uncover the artistic inspiration and design ideas you have for this project. The more details, examples, ideas, and guidance you provide our team during the design process, the better!

Timeline

Your timeline begins on the agreed-upon date, as outlined in your contract, and once all documents are fully executed, and the initial deposit has been received. Timelines quoted are based on a turnaround time of one business day for sending requested items, feedback, or approvals from you. If you take longer to get back to us with revisions, approvals, or any items we need from you, your timeline will be delayed. If you require more than XX weeks to provide approval, feedback, or the items needed, your project may be rescheduled with a new timeline. If you have an urgent website project timeline, ask your project manager about our expedited timeline fee to meet your deadline.

Features, Functionality, & Plugins

Web Forms

A contact form or online form on a web page allows a user to enter information that can be sent digitally to your email, stored in a database, and/or sent to a customer relationship management system (CRM). Web forms are a great way to collect information about your customers or potential customers to build an email list, track engagement, and more. A single form with up to ten data fields is included in the standard price.

Unlimited Form Submissions

Collect form submissions, customize notification emails, and download submissions as a CSV file (spreadsheet).

Custom Functionality

Do you have additional data fields you want to collect? Custom functionality may include requests to integrate with a 3rd party system, pulling and sending data through an API, or advanced animations. Pricing depends on the complexity of the request.

Advanced Events Package

Highlight your events with our events calendar feature. Create a unique page for each event that displays all the necessary information like location, time, and details. Events will be archived once the event date and time passes and are automatically removed from the “upcoming events section” so that your website is never outdated. This means that your events section won’t require any further content changes to remove old events after that initial event is added.

Want to sell tickets online or require registration for limited space events? We can do that too. Let us know what you need and we will customize the solution to your needs.

With authors being our niche, we know you are the right person to write your own event descriptions. However, you may not always have the time or desire to do it yourself. We can assist with creating the descriptions, adding them into the website and creating professional looking images for an additional cost. Pricing varies based on your total needs. Talk to us for details.

Email Hosting & Technical Support

We do not offer email hosting, but we can give you guidance on who we recommend for hosting, setup, and maintenance. Email support services are not part of our offerings as your email host will provide you these services directly. However, we will manage your domain name’s DNS settings and update it with any necessary records that are needed and supplied to us by your 3rd party vendors. Why can’t we handle your email too? 24/7 email support is critical, but can be a big drain on resources. Ultimately, this is something that larger email providers can do much better than us, which frees us up to do what we do best; creative work!

Pricing Structure

Our website plans are based on an annual contract. At the end of your initial year another yearly contract will need to be signed. If you choose to move your website to another hosting provider, we will supply you with your website files and database. If help is requested to migrate your website there will be a migration fee.
