You’ve heard and believe that your website is the modern-day equivalent of a 1st impression.
And right now, you’re not too thrilled with the first impression that your website is putting out there are you?We hear you. And you’re in the right place.
That’s what a HandBuiltBrands Custom Website does.
Every engagement begins with a roadmap. This is a paid engagement — a project scoping and pricing plan workshop — where over the course of 2-3 meetings, we gather all of the details of the project, develop the sitemap, tease out the design criteria, identify ideal customer / user paths and in general, figure out what this website is going to be about.
Every site we create is a custom design and development.
For the peace of mind of our customers, we created a website management package that is turnkey and allows our customers to focus on their business, not their website.
We build custom-designed websites and develop them on the WordPress content management system.
A two-week paid workshop where we:
The end deliverable is a Roadmap (imagine that). It is a Statement of Work, a plan of action and a pricing plan all in one. And here’s the beauty of it. If you choose, you can take it to anyone to proceed. This will contain the proposal that you will approve before the story, design and development begins.
Content Gathering, Writing and Imagery Recommendations
This is where design and story overlap a bit, depending on the scope of the content project.
Development is where we take the pixel-perfect designs and move them into a build phase.
A roadmap is a comprehensive scope of work, estimate and opportunity document and it consists of four main areas: story and content audit, research, website planning and a pricing plan.
The final deliverable will be a recommended scope of work for your business fit to your company's needs, a cost estimate for the initial project build and possible on-going marketing opportunities after the project build.
What we create is stories that sell. It really does start with the story. The message. What are we trying to say? What are we trying to accomplish? Who are we speaking to what are their mindsets? What’s in their heart?
And it works. But don’t take it from us, this is what our customers say:

The Roadmap process typically takes 2 meetings over the course of 2 weeks. Below is a rough guide of what to expect for these meetings:
Discuss your buyer personas - who are the top 3 key stakeholders or audience of your online presence?
Discuss your story - what story are you trying to tell? Why do you think people buy from you rather than someone else?
What products and services are you trying to feature? How do people find you currently? How do they know your products exist?
If someone was typing 5 different queries into a search engine, for what keywords would you want to show?
What CRM do you use currently? Ideally, we'll want to know how a website can work within your existing sales and operations process. What aspects of your business can or should exist on your website?
What do you want people to do on your website? Identify your ideal user experience and flow.
What pages are on your website currently? What parts of the site need to eventually be built out?
You'll give us access to a current image repository
We'll need access to your website and digital marketing properties.
HubSpot (if applicable), Analytics (Google Analytics or others), Google Search Console, Facebook, Bing Webmaster Tools, Google My Business, local directory logins, etc.
Website content management system access, FTP access, database access
A new online presence can help you increase sales or enhance the value of your business. Can we quantify it?
What budget ranges do you have in mind for the build? We help provide counsel on this. That's what we're here for.
After the planning work is completed, we'll meet to present our estimate, proposal and roadmap for your online growth. We'll present you an online document and give you the link afterward, so you can discuss with your stakeholders prior to approval, if necessary.
This is me asking you. When can we start?
Because we love meeting people with amazing products.
And we love doing this.
