Things to consider when developing a website:
to find out.
Is your site being authored by hand, or simply generated by software? What's the difference? Many web designers know little or nothing about the basics of page design, - the fact that
browsers only look at code and have to interpret it into visible pages. Each browser will do this a little differently. At Cassiopeia Web Designs, we author every site we develop - that is
to say that we hand-code the html elements in order to maximize the effectiveness of the site. This improves the speed and accuracy in which pages display and how well they will
rank in the search engines when someone conducts a search for your product or service.
Are graphics being optimized for best format and smallest file size? Does your web designer
know when to use a "gif" image and when to use a "jpg"? Will your text load before the
images do for people with slower connections? Having unnecessarily large image files
result in higher bandwidth fees at the end of the month. At Cassiopeia Web Designs we know how to
optimize graphics and Flash elements in order to keep the site as fast and streamlined
as possible, saving you bandwidth and saving your visitors time.
Thinking of having an existing site re-designed for a new look? We can do that. We can
also create an entire site in Flash, or just add some Flash elements to parts of your
site. Our animated top graphic on this site was created in Flash and includes our
active navigation system. Unlike some sites with slow-loading Flash intro screens,
we develop Flash that will load as quickly as a simple graphic file, yet provides
animation and interactivity.
How does the whole process work?
First, you contact us. You may call us at 1.905.828.9096,
use our online form, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are contacting us from the area, we will answer questions and set up an appointment to meet in person and
discuss your requirements. At the meeting you will be educated on the benefits of advertising your company's products or
services on the web. We also explain the process of creating a web site so the customer has a good understanding of the
steps that are taken to develop the project. We ask
questions about your business to determine what your needs are. After we
have a good understanding of your requirements, we will send you a quote via email. After reviewing and accepting
our quote, a contract will be drawn up. This will be brought to you for your approval and signature, with the receipt
of a deposit check*. If any changes need to be made to the contract, we will modify it to fit your project requirements.
Once this is done, you send us the signed contract and the deposit, as well as any images and/or text required to begin.
Services will begin when the deposit check is received.
If you are contacting us through our online form for a quote, or more information, we will get in touch with you as soon
as possible. We will answer your questions, and ask you about your business so we can get a better sense of what
you need. Once we have an understanding of what you will require for your site, we will be able to create a quote
and send it to you via email. After reviewing and accepting the quote, a contract will be drawn up. This will be sent
to you for your approval and signature. Once the contract is signed we will require a deposit check.*
If any changes need to be made to the contract, just tell us and we will modify it to fit your project requirements.

servers and use email to collaborate on graphics, templates, content, etc. Any minor changes required are done free for
up to six months after the website is completed. Any other changes are billed at $60 per hour, and are considered part
of web maintenance.
Steps to creating the site
First we register a domain name and set up Web hosting for your Web site. We include a FREE Email account (POP
mail with the same domain name) with Webmail access (you can read and send mail from any public terminal or Web browser).
Then we design your new Web site, edit and organize your information, create a logical navigation for it, and wrap
it in a beautiful design. Most important of all, we market your new Web site online - so people can find you! This
is the real power of the Web for your business. Once your new site is on the Web, we can help keep your site looking
fresh, add new pages, update informaiton, remove dead links, etc. Whether you need weekly updates or an annual checkup,
we maintain your Web site at very reasonable rates. See pricing above or click here.
