BRANDING REQUIREMENT

Branding first; website second

We require a Standard Brand Style Guide (ideal), or Simple Brand Board at minimum (includes logo, brand colors, fonts, brand graphics), from a professional designer, or created by us, for every web design project prior to beginning the project.

Read about why we have this requirement, and how your company will benefit from it here.

The great news is this is a service we offer, and web design clients can take 25% off all branding projects.

Don’t see a package that fits your needs?

We’re happy to provide an itemized web design estimate based on your criteria.

See our pricing page for information on price ranges for custom websites.

Free Stock Pet Photos

In case you missed it above, along with our beautiful designs, you also get FREE STOCK ANIMAL PHOTOS from our very own talented commercial pet photographers for your website and email assets!

These aren’t your generic photos you’ll find on the microstock sites. These are gorgeous images that will really take your brand to the next level.

No more hunting down great content. We’ll supply it for you.

Oh, and did we mention that copywriting is included too?

FAQ

Your web design questions, answered

We read somewhere that Google is now a ‘mobile-first’ browser. What does that mean for our new website?

It means that Google prioritizes websites in the search results that have content that loads fast and is easy to read on mobile devices, because close to 65% of Google users are looking at websites on their phones. 

We take quite a bit of liberty with that here on this site, because we know through our own analytics that the vast majority of our (B2B) clients are browsing our site on their desktop computers. So we have a lot of content and a lot of photos. 

On our client sites who serve pet parents, we use less content and smaller and fewer photos, because those sites load faster on mobile and have better SEO. 

In the end we design and build websites for the end users. So we get to know who yours are and create something for them they will really love, that will also have good SEO.

What is the monthly cost for a Shopify website?

It totally depends. 

Shopify has lots of apps that increase the functionality of your store, so it depends on how many of those you want to enable. Some are free, some a one-time fee, some are monthly, and others are annually. 

During our discovery call let us know which apps you are interested in and we can see if we can code any of that functionality for you instead.

How will we leave my feedback on our new website before we launch it? We want to be able to ask for changes if we see something we don’t like.

We have a super cool tool we place on your staging website, and you’ll use the tool during the revision phases of the project to leave comments and requests on any photo, graphic, text, section, row or box.

Our team gets notified whenever you leave a comment, so we’ll know just what to change. 

It makes the revision process quick and easy.

We had a terrible experience once with a web designer/developer who held our website/hosting/domain registration hostage and wouldn’t give us the logins/details/admin access. Will we have that problem with your agency?

NO. And we hate hearing that and are so sorry you went through that. 

While many web design agencies disagree with this, when we hand off your site to you, we hand off everything. All login details, all account details, and all admin access. You have full control over your website, your hosting and your domain name from the time we make your site live. 

One big caveat to this:

If you choose to try and do your own maintenance and/or design work, and you break your site, we charge hefty fees to put it back together, and we schedule that work in and around our other client work. 

With the privilege comes responsibility, so we just ask that if you need any work done on the site, you please contact us first, or find another professional web design studio to do the work.

If you are including a premium WordPress theme in my website, how long does the license last before we need to renew?

One year from the time we install the theme. The rate will be annual, you’ll renew with the theme makers, and it will include all updates.

Do you maintain our new website for us after we launch it?

If you purchase a monthly maintenance service from us- yes! We’ll go over the different options and what they include during our discovery call.

We have more questions that we don't see answered here. How do we get answers?

Give us a shout! We'd love to hear from you.

How it Works

The process for great photo results

241050~|cowbelly-2021-branding~|icons8-telephone~|

Creative Call

We hop on a phone call and learn more about your business and web needs.

We chat about the end user, the goals for the website, and what your overall vision  is.

We discuss what kind of inclusions you’d like, and whether or not you need branding as well.

We follow the call with a proposal and itemized estimate, and once you sign the estimate and pay the advance, then it’s off to the web design races we go. 

241050~|cowbelly-2021-branding~|icons8-imac~|

Design & Build

Our team gets busy planning your site, and we build out the wireframe on the staging site. 

We show you the ‘grand reveal’ of the homepage, which has all the styling the rest of the site will have. 

You can provide your feedback with our handy feedback tool right there on the site, and we’ll get notified when you’ve made a revision request. 

241050~|cowbelly-2021-branding~|icons8-image-gallery~|

Launch

When all the changes have been made, and the tasks checked off the list, we push your fancy new site from staging to live, and share a walkthrough video with you so you can find your way around. 

We also provide you with all the login and hosting details in a handoff document. We give you full control over your site. You paid for it- it’s yours!

241050~|cowbelly-2021-branding~|icons8-tick-box~|

Results

Share your magical new website with the world, and watch your engagement and conversions skyrocket!

Consumers purchase from brands they fall in love with, and there’s no better way to woo them than with a beautiful custom website.

“Absolute pleasure working with you! Incredible communication the whole way through. I’m so in love with the results.”
