  • 01

    Start the convo

    Fill out our contact form below or have your web designer reach out on your behalf so we can learn more about you and your project. From there, we'll schedule a time to hop on a quick zoom call to discuss your project details, answer any questions, and see if we're the right fit for what you need.

  • 02

    Make it official

    Once we’ve connected over zoom and dug into the scope of the project, we’ll send over a customized proposal with your full development specs, contract, invoice, overview of the payment plan, and the link to clear the initial deposit. After that, you'll be officially on our schedule!

  • 03

    Time to code

    When the final design files have been prepped and delivered, we’ll set an official development start date and begin developing your custom theme via a demo site on our private server (to make sure your current site goes uninterrupted). Your second payment will also be due at this time. Once your demo site is ready, it will be sent to your designer for any corrections or detail finessing before we pass it over to you for final approval. This is your chance to click around the site as if it were live to test the functionality on different browsers, provide feedback, ask questions, and prep the site for installation.

  • 04

    Ready, set, launch

    After the demo site has been finalized, we'll connect to create your ideal launch plan . For some, that means pushing the demo site live immediately, while for others it means installing onto a staging site on your own server where you can take your time prepping content for launch. On the day of the install we'll collect your final payment and will also send you a personalized video walkthrough of your shiny new site with directions on how to use it and make changes.

What They're Saying

  • Jessica, An Indigo Day

    "Investing in Made To Thrive to bring my website to life was the best thing I ever did for my business. Lindsay's team was hands-on, attentive and super-efficient. As someone who does not feel comfortable with all the complicated techy stuff for a website, it was a relief to have them as the experts to ensure a smooth transition and handle all the scary things. Could not be happier with my new beautiful and super user friendly, website."

Lindsay's customer service, attention to detail, fast response time, and cheerful attitude blew me away during our time together.

  • Lisa, Linnaea Floral

    "The whole process of building my new website was so easy and Lindsay was excellent to work with! She sent me lots of update emails to keep me in the loop and was patient with my many 'stupid questions' when it came to web terminology. The outcome is beyond anything I could have imagined, and I still can't believe she coded this beautiful site into existence! I honestly couldn't have created something so perfect on my own!"

  • Addie, Chickpea In the City

    "I absolutely loved working with Lindsay/Made To Thrive as she made transitioning my old site to the new one so seamless and simple. I love that she provided a step by step video tutorial of how to navigate my new site to make it easy to understand. Not only did she upload my new site faster than I thought possible but got back to me so quickly whenever I had questions or comments. Working with her on my site helped me tremendously! 10/10 would recommend for any freelancer wanting to improve their blog/site."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do I need both a web designer and a developer?

    The relationship between a web designer and a developer is similar to an architect and a builder.

    A web designer is similar to an architect — They provide a flat-proof/drawing of how things should be built, including the look and flow. Your web designer will create the look of your website and communicate your vision via the layout, color palette, and overall graphics.

    A web developer is similar to the builder of the house — Think of us as your construction company. We take the flat proofs from the designer and bring them to life by writing in code and formatting each design element. We handle the “techy” side of things and hold your hand the whole way!

    Each part of the process is unique and equally valuable when creating a website from scratch. The magic happens when these two work together to create the dreamiest of websites!

  • How much will my website development cost?

    Every project is quoted specifically based on your site needs but most fit into one of our packages listed above. The full scope of your project will be laid out clearly in our development proposal so there are no surprises, hiccups or misunderstandings along the way. Please note that this cost is for development only and excludes the cost of your designer.

    Also, to make the payments more feasible we typically split the payment into three parts:

    • 33.3% due at booking 
    • 33.3% due at start of development
    • 33.3% due at site installation
  • Will my new site be mobile friendly?

    Yes, 100%! Our sites are built with mobile users in mind and include a mobile stylesheet.

  • Will my new site be optimized for page speed?

    Yes! We optimize and test all of our sites upon launch and send a detailed Google PSI report review, including further opportunities & recommendations. Note: Specific results cannot be guaranteed due to elements out of our control (ie, poor hosting, heavy plugin use, ad scripts, etc)

  • Do you guarantee project timelines?

    6 weeks is our typical project length for development, but there are always exceptions to the rule with factors like:

    • A very large or complex website.
    • Design delays.
    • Lack of communication and/or feedback.
    • Change in project scope (Ex. Adding more pages or making major design changes after coding is complete).
    • Failure to pay an invoice on time. 
  • What is the demo site review process like?

    Quick! Since our development follows the exact, approved design files, most demo site revisions are minor. The tweaks usually involve simple technical fixes like, for example, a pop-up not working in Firefox. If design changes (differing from the original design proof) create a greater scope of work, they will need to be quoted and re-coded accordingly.

  • What if I need to make content changes to my site after it’s launched?

    Our websites are built to be completely user-friendly and intuitive without you needing any coding experience. You’ll be given a detailed, personalized training video to show you exactly how to make content changes. If you find yourself needing more detailed changes or additions in the future, we also offer hourly support services to all past clients.

  • Do you provide SEO services?

    While we are not SEO experts, we do our best to set your site up for success by installing the Yoast SEO plugin and providing video training on how to use it throughout your site. If you want to dig in deeper, we have SEO specialists we can introduce you to that we trust and highly recommend.

  • Will my new site be optimized for page speed?

    Absolutely! We fully optimize and test all of our sites upon launch and send a detailed Google PSI report review, including further opportunities & recommendations. Note: Specific results cannot be guaranteed due to elements out of our control (ie, poor hosting, heavy plugin use, ad scripts, etc)
