Cedro7 Coaching Services Web Design & Development

Prepared by Chris McMahon on August 26th, 2019

Project Overview

The project objective is to install a WordPress site with a pre-built theme that allows for a homepage, blog, social media icons, and a form to request an appointment.

Project Scope

Design

The site design will be determined by the theme chosen. I will provide 3-5 free per-built themes to choose from.

This proposal includes up to 4 hours of custimization to the chosen theme.

Development

Content Management

The project will be using WordPress as the content management system. This will allow the client to easily make updates and additions to the site.

WordPress Theme

A prebuilt WordPress theme will be chosen from a list provided by CRM.

Request an Appointment

A form allowing potential clients to request an appointment. This form will send the information provided via email as well as keep a record in the database that can be accessed from within the WordPress admin area

Training

Up to 4 hours of training is included in this proposal.

SEO

Site Structure

The chosen theme will determine if the site is built in an SEO-friendly manner. This will be one of the key criteria of deciding what themes to present to the client

Site Map

A human accessible page containing a listing of all public facing pages will be included to help with wayfinding and search engine indexing. The site will also include an XML version of the sitemap, as many search engines also use that in their indexing efforts.

Analytics

A Google Analytics account will be set-up (if one does not already exist) and integrated into the site to allow for search traffic analysis.

Testing

The site will be built with modern browsers (latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, & IE) in mind and reasonable adjustments will be made to ensure functionality in older browsers once the site is complete.

If more than 2 hours is needed to make the site meet the client's specifications in browsers older than those listed above, that additional time will be billable. This is usually not necessary as old browsers represent less than 3% of US Market Share.

Content Population

Content will be provided by the client and populated by CRM

Any changes or additions to the initialy provided content will be completed by CRM for $85 an hour or by the client during/after training.

…Impressive and very inspirational.

Hosting

One year of Entry Level Maintenance and Hosting is included in this proposal.

Email configuration (beyond the creation of MX records) is not included in this proposal. A third party email service provider can be recommended if needed.

Timing

Project timeline is 10-12 business days and, as of the submission of this proposal, can start August 28th. A more detailed timeline, along with key deliverable dates, will be provided upon signed agreement and receipt of deposit.

Chris has delivered every project on time and at budget. What I like most is his desire to make our projects better by offering suggestions and guidance.
