What does the Site Building Service process look like?

Our Site Building Service occurs in two phases. First you complete the site build form so we have an idea of what you want your site to look like. After completing the form, a Format Expert will contact you and build the first draft of your site. You will get a chance to let us know what you like about the first draft, or what you want to change. 

Based on the feedback we receive from you, we will build a second and final draft. After the final draft of the website is built, you will receive a video walkthrough of the website and the Site Building Service will conclude. 

You will also be provided with helpful tutorial videos to ensure you are able to maintain your site ongoing. These videos will cover topics such as filling in your SEO and using advanced tools. You will also have the support team available to you at any point if you get stuck.
