Our approach is to emphasize functionality and rock-solid navigation within your site, followed by customization and refinement of appearance. Prepaid price approximates a fifty percent discount from our à la carte price list. This program does not include content management such as composition, graphic manipulation or posting text. Clients agree this is our most cost-effective service for basic websites.

Procedure


  1. You supply text and graphics; most clients start with materials from other media like letterhead, brochures, logos, product descriptions and images.

  2. We use an online meeting by appointment to configure your site. Choose your own color scheme. Use a preconfigured theme or show us examples of sites you like and let us adapt a design - all in real time. Plan on two sessions of one to two hours each.

  3. Your Clark IP design affiliate will turn your existing materials into a website. First we make it work; then we make it pretty. If you do not have standard content, original creative services are available; additional features are available in our Professional, Enterprise and Journalmaker packages or by individual arrangement.

  4. Delivery time can be just a few hours but is normaily a few days from the moment we have your source materials (text, graphics, product list...).

  5. Your pre-payment puts your project in our service queue. Discuss the schedule with your account representative before purchasing. Your payment is non-refundable once work has begun.

  6. You can modify the appearance of the site at any time using a standard theme, or you can use the automated appearance tools, or one of our designers can alter it at low cost; minor appearance adjustments and advice are free.

Once your site is operational you can pick and choose additional services as needed, or just add content within the structure.
