What do Both Parties Agree to

You’ll do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound to keep the project moving speedily. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out by the terms of the subscription billing.
We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavor to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that, we’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.
Our typical development time is approximately four to six weeks. This timeframe may fluctuate, for a specific deadline please consult your project manager. Add-on services may add up to 1 business day onto our project timeline per add-on item. Custom websites will take longer typically adding an additional 2 weeks to your timeline. Typical correspondence from you the client should be no more than one business day. Any wait time beyond this may add additional time to the project being launched. Our development time is accounting for our deliverability but does not account for any additional time added to the project by the client requesting revisions or lacking in communication. These extenuating factors will delay your project timeframe.

Once the initial design concept (the home page) is approved, the rest of the website will be built with the same design and functionality. Any revisions requested after the initial design concept has been accepted will invoke a fee which will be determined by the scope and complexity that is requested. We will determine the scope and provide you a quote necessary for the requested revision, to which you may approve or request changes to the scope in order to alter the quote. All website packages by default are based on our templated designs unless a custom design upgrade is purchased. Template sites may not have design revisions, the design is already set in stone.
