Thanks for visiting Dilly Willy Web Design and Development. If you’re not 100% sure exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to web design and web development services , this is the perfect place to start. Ultimately, you will come away from reading this post with more information and more confidence in your decision-making.
Do You Actually Need Web Development?
There are a lot of different kinds of web design, a lot of different platforms for making websites, and many different methodologies. That’s why it can be difficult to make a decision, so i’m going to make them clear:
Start With Your Web Design and Development Goal
You might be considering creating a platform to connect users and professionals. You might want to make a website for a small business. You might just want a place to put your art, or your creations. Whatever it is you could be overestimating the cost and difficulty of web design and development. today more than ever, it is extremely simple to build a beautiful and functional website, for almost most any purpose, without having to spend months on development. WordPress, Shopify, Webflow, they make web design and development extremely easy, and take much less time than starting from scratch with a developer. You could spend $10,000 with the developer creating a university online, or you could spend $1000 with a WordPress guy adding a couple plug-ins to your website, you will end up with the same functionality on both sites!
Using a Web Design and Development firm vs. Me, A WordPress Designer
So when should you go with a developer and when should you go with a content management system like WordPress? well, if you’re creating something that has never been done before, that needs to precisely conform to a set of previously built wireframes / designs, and for which you do not wish to use any third-party software or code to create, that is basically the only time when you really need a developer. Some firms will push the starting from scratch approach, but that might just be because it is the most profitable. The truth is, for most websites, for most situations, a developer is totally unnecessary, creates way too many headaches, and can be completely avoided.
I personally have been the lead dev of a startup based in California, and as a full stack web developer I understand the value and complexity of proper development. It is because I have this experience that I can tell you with confidence that typically, it’s not necessary. It will cost you time, and money, that could otherwise be spent on marketing your product, growing your fanbase, improving your offer etc.
Why WordPress Is Better For Your Web Design and Development
For most businesses most individuals most creators all you really need is a beautiful functional WordPress site. Here are some examples of websites that I’ve built in the past that you might think require a developer, and months of time, but which really don’t!
- E-Commerce Stores & Online Shopping
- Online University
- Real Estate Catalog with Live Listings (MLS)
- Events and Ticketing platform.
- Political party
- User Forum with Accounts, Logins, Signups
These kinds of projects may seem complicated, but the functionality and the frameworks for all of these projects and more already exist, and can be easily adapted to your goals in WordPress. So if you’re thinking of making a website and you’re looking for a website design and development lead, I hope that you consider my website design package for $599.
Why You Should Work With Dilly Willy Web Design Over Any Other Firm
You should work with me because I’m going to be completely honest with you about everything that goes on with your website. One issue that can come up when you’re working with a big firm is that they can purposely mislead you when it comes to the management of your site. Part of the bigger firm’s business model can include intentionally setting up roadblocks and obstacles for you. They purposely limit your ability to do things on your website so that you have to continuously come back to them and keep paying them loads of money every month just to make changes to your site that you could do on your own. That’s not what I’m about at all. I hold truth and transparency as the core values of my business.
Aside from that, I’m also giving you what I believe to be the fairest price that you can possibly get for this kind of website. Nobody else will give you a website, hosting, and a domain, all for $599. Nobody does it and if you can find a couple people that do, they usually come with a set of problems of their own. For example: developers with poor language skills, management in a different time zone, poor communication skills, mistakes in written language, etc. These developers might be excellent at developing websites, and writing code, but typically the results that you get working with these lower end firms aren’t stellar.
When You Work With Me, You Work With Me
I personally work on every single website design and development project. I don’t hand off my design work to foreign contractors or freelancers. When you work with me, you work with me! I’ve been working in web design since I was 15 years old. I’m a university graduate. I’ve worked at web design firms for the last 4 years and I have worked in search engine optimization for the last four years. I truly feel that the quality of my work, my experience, and my native tongue of English culminate in a value that is much higher than $599.
What Is Included In The $599 WordPress Web Design and Development Package
Here’s what you can expect from working with me. I will deliver you a beautiful, functional, responsive website (up to 8 pages) that can include an eCommerce store, or portfolio. I will ensure that the website looks beautiful on a desktop computer, and on mobile. In addition to the website, I’ll also throw in a domain name (if it’s less than $20 and available on Namecheap / Godaddy) and I will also throw free hosting for your website for the first month ($10 a month after that).
After your website is complete I will happily give you a tour of the backend of the website, teach you how to modify your websites posts and products etc. Basically, I will show you how to manage the whole website on your own. I want to be as transparent as possible and give you all the tools you need to run the website the way you want.
If you want to boost your traffic, I also offer completely optional SEM and SEO packages.
Web Design From Nothing to Something
How do we go from your first inquiry to getting your site up live on the internet? The first step in the process is to purchase a website design and development package, which you can find at the bottom of this page (Don’t worry, if you change your mind before work begins on the homepage of your site, you can get a full refund). After your order is confirmed, I’ll send you an introductory word document to ask you questions about your business, yourself, your competitors, and about the kind of website that you want to build. from that information I’ll come up with a few template designs for your website, and I will send them over to you for approval.
Once you approve one of the designs I’ll begin my work on the homepage and then the rest of the pages that follow, BUT along the way I will need content! Website content is EXTREMELY important and I will need to get the wording for each of the pages in order to fill out the website correctly. You have a few options for generating content for your site: you can come up with this content on your own, I can improvise the content for you (and you can edit it later), or I can refer you to an affiliated content writing service that will write the content for you.
When the design is complete and all of the content is filled in, your website is ready to launch! I’ll put the website up live on your domain, and I will add a an SSL certificate so your users know that your site is secure and that their sensitive information is encrypted and safe.
That’s it. It’s just that simple, after your website design AND development is done, you can still contact me with questions, for help, or if you want to learn how to manage your website as previously mentioned.
Payment And The Dilly Willy 100% Money Back Guarantee
Payment is made in full upfront. It needs to be this way because I have to cover the costs associated with making your website. But I Offer a 100% money back guarantee full refund If you change your mind before I begin working on the homepage of the website. That means that you have until the point where you approve of a design from the three templates that I send you, to change your mind and get a full refund. After that point work has already been done, and costs have already accrued, so I can only offer you a partial refund.
Lets Launch Your Website
You can start by adding the web design hosting and domain package to your cart below. All you have to do from there is continue through the checkout process, and once your order is complete you will receive an order confirmation, a personal email from me containing the informational word document that was mentioned above, an introduction, and a link to schedule a brief introductory phone call with you. From there on everything will continue as described above until your website is ready for launch!
