August 22, 2022
Welcome Kathleen & Mary,
Thank you for considering BELL Branding Solutions for your web design & development of your new site.
After my detailed evaluation of your existing site, this proposal will spell out our ‘deliverables’, benefits, design and content features for you.
Let me know if you have any questions and/or would like to get started?
Benefits of Our Design and Platform
(developed with ‘open source’ architecture)
- Built-in Content Management System (CMS)
Your WordPress site will be developed using ‘the latest, 2022’ platform and custom theme to achieve the brand strategies per our discussion and future concepts upon our build.
- Our Platform Increases Your Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
As an added value, your site will be optimized for easy publishing and the changing of content. Fresh and unique content is essential for getting good search engine rankings. All pages will be built using SEO best practices.
- Blog Posts
Enjoy having the ability to post latest news, product updates and features in a “blog” format that will allow your content to be presented as “latest entry” first and will utilize the built-in archive feature that will organize your content automatically.
Our platform offers plug-ins with features that can be incorporated into your site and the functionality is virtually limitless. Plug-ins for Social Media integration (Facebook and Twitter), photo galleries, forms, Google Maps, Video and RSS feeds and more…
- Ease of Use
Although WordPress, being very robust, simple edits can be done by you or if you choose to have us do it for you, that works to at a minimum of $75.00.
- Sitemap Submissions and Revisions
BELL Branding Solutions will develop your site map showing the navigation of the site and where each supporting page will be located within the navigation. We use an online tool that can be shared with a team member in real time to acheive our sitemap and upload content directly for consistency. Optional.
- Home Page Design
Your home page will reflect your new branding elements. Logo, colors and marketing appeal. Custom background, header, footer and navigation. Per our discussion, a second round of replacing imagery throughout your site, once you have real/people/building images are included in our prcing.
- Sub-page Design
Your sub-page design will reflect the design elements from the home page. Granted, most subpages will be unique to the materials submitted and designed using the same color scheme from your home page.
