Website Project Checklist


In order to make sure your new website project goes smoothly, I created these forms and checklists for everything we’re going to do.

If there are areas that don’t apply to your particular website, that’s okay we can always skip things or put them on a list for later updates or makeovers down the road.

At any time you feel a little overwhelmed or would rather communicate over the phone about something, I am completely available to you. See below For A Link To My Calendar

Let’s dive in and get your new site live!
