You’ve made the best decision for your company.
I’m so looking forward to working with you. Before we start this project together, I want you to remember why you’ve hired me.
Good design gets to the heart of who you are + what you do.
Good design inspires website visitors to take action.
Good design acts as a sales agent for your lead process.
I can help you with this. Don’t just take my word for it. Here’s a reminder of what my clients experience when working with me.
Janice is the consummate professional. Her patience, creative talents, and professional ethic make her a pleasure to work with. Having several years of web presence and several service providers prior to Janice, our company realized her value from the very beginning. Janice pride and professionalism are reflected in her work. We are fortunate to have her as our service provider.
Having worked with other companies in the past, we are extremely happy that we came across JGJ. The professionalism, product knowledge and immediate response to questions definitely puts JGJ at the top of their industry. Once again, thank you, JGJ, for your amazing services that you provided to us.
Many thanks to Janice Gentles-Jones. Building a website like this is no small endeavor and Janice tackled the job with skill, enthusiasm and a whole lot of patience. When we were searching for a designer to give us a face lift and bring us up to speed in form and function, it was not easy to know where to begin.
So we prayed. Janice came highly recommended from two separate sources. As you know, when God answers a prayer, He often confirms it. So we listened and we’re glad we did! We are deeply grateful to Janice for her expertise and wisdom. If you know anyone who is looking to build a website, we at Catholic Therapists give Janice 5 halos (our highest rating)!
I have been involved in the implementation of several product installations, upgrades and migrations. Working with JGJ Consulting and, specifically, Janice Gentles-Jones was a pleasant surprise. She delivered on-time, on-budget, and as promised. I couldn’t have had a better experience.
JGJ Web Design Process
After you've read through this page, you can schedule a free consultation. You'll be able to ask me any questions you have before booking!
Once you're ready to move forward, we'll both need to sign my contract so that we're fully protected before we begin working together.
You’ll pay a non-refundable 20% deposit to secure your spot on my schedule. Then 30% is due at the start of the project and the final 50% is due when the website is ready to be moved to your domain.
I'll add you to my project management system, Asana. This is where we'll communicate and keep all your files and feedback. Don't worry - I'll provide you with a video tutorial on how to use it!
You'll need to complete a web design questionnaire. Then you'll need to upload all your website content to Asana.
1-2 weeks before your project begins, we'll get on a 30 minute call if you're up for it. This is the perfect time to ask any last-minute questions you may have!
I'll design and layout your homepage and interior pages on my development server. You'll have two rounds of revisions for each page. After you're approval, I'll move your new website to your domain.
Before I move your website to your domain, you'll need to complete your final payment. Once payment is made, I'll move your website files to your hosting server.
Don't worry, I'm not going to leave you to figure out how to use your website all by yourself. We'll set up a 30 minute consult call where I walk you through how to use and update your website.
When you’re booked in my schedule, we’ll stop using email to have our conversation and we’ll start using my project management tool, Asana.
A project management tool is a secure space online where we have have conversations, share files, set reminders, and create to-do lists.
Where files often get lost when managing projects through email, nothing gets lost or forgotten in Asana. It’s the simplest way to keep our project organized and make sure it goes as smoothly as possible!
Don’t worry – you won’t need to pay for this tool and it’s not hard to use. Click the button below to watch a 3-minute tutorial on how to use it!
Here’s what I need from you before you begin…
1. Brand Inspiration. Search Google for images that resonate with the way you want your brand to feel and simply upload them to the ‘Brand Inspiration’ task inside our Asana project. Watch the video above to see how to do this.
2. Fill out your Design Questionnaire. Your questionnaire helps me understand your goals and needs, and enables me to create something you’ll love! You’ll receive an email with a link to the questionnaire.
3. Upload your website content to Asana. I need you to upload your website copy and photography to Asana at least 1 week before your project starts.
I really appreciate simple and straightforward feedback. It helps me clearly understand your thoughts and make the right changes to your designs.
Here are a few tips on providing awesome feedback:
- Try and use bullet points to break up your feedback.
- Use headers to organize your feedback.
- Read over your feedback to make sure it’s clear and check that you’ve answered any questions I may have asked.
- Post your feedback as a comment on the relevant Asana discussion instead of emailing me directly. Back and forth emails can get tiring but communicating in Asana is a breeze!
- If you have team members that would like to add their feedback, I kindly ask that you gather the feedback into one message. This stops everyone from getting confused and keeps the project organized.
A non-refundable 20% deposit is due to book your spot in my schedule.
30% is due the day before we start your project.
50% is due when the project is complete but before I move your website to your domain.
As outlined in my contract, if your first 35% payment is late, I can put your project on hold. We can restart the project at a later date but a rescheduling fee will be charged.
Your final payment is due 7 days upon receipt. If payment has not been made by the 7th day, a 5% interest will be added every 7 days until your payment has been completed, starting on the 8th day.
To help keep your project on track to finishing on time, please provide feedback on your designs within two business days of receiving them.
I really appreciate your effort to provide files and feedback on time! Timeliness from both of us will help us get your project done on (or even before!) the deadline so you can move on to the next exciting task on your to-do list and I can cheer you on.
What happens now?
After you’ve completed everything on your checklist, we’re all set to begin your project! I’ll contact you a couple of weeks before your start date to set up an optional 30 minute call where you can ask any last-minute questions you may have.
I look forward to starting your project!
