Turning Design Concepts into Websites
Whether a client completely hands over the reins or wants to have input in their project, Echo Freelance puts on my creative caps and is available to go to task under either circumstance. We provide the most creative and affordable web design services in the business.
Web Design that Convert Leads
Clearly, the purpose of the website is to drive business. The goal is to entice visitors to view your products and services, resulting in sales and leads. I understand the importance of conversion, and take pride in helping other businesses increase their ROI through my web design.
Levels to get your web design done!
Through my years of experience as a freelance web designer, I've been able to develop a process that allows me to work closely with the client, adapt their vision, and make recommendations. Below are the eight levels of the process my clients will experience.
Level 1: Consultation / Goal Setting
The first step is to schedule a meeting via phone or Skype. Think of this as the getting to know you phase. This allows me to get to know your goals and your business.
Level 2: Site Architecture / Sitemap
Based on our first meeting, I will submit a proposal that outlines my recommendations for the pages of your website. This will include details regarding the hierarchical structure and navigational ordering of the website's pages.
Level 3: Initial Design Mock-ups and Revisions
This is when I get creative as a freelance web designer. A composite sketch is transferred from pen & paper form to Adobe Photoshop or illustrator. The design mockup is presented to the client in Photoshop format.
I provide a link for the client to view the mockup and to provide feedback to me. In some circumstances, there may be more than one version of the design and logos. I depend on our client's input at this stage, as it has been called for moving forward for completion.
Level 4: Typography
Typography, also known as typefaces or fonts, can make or break the look of the website. Choosing the right font is a critical step in the design process for any web designer. My extensive experience in choosing the right fonts for my clients has proven to be successful in my web design projects.
Level 5: Coding the design
Level 6: Setting up a CMS (optional)
I often use WordPress as the CMS for your website, or alternatively, I develop a custom CMS-tailored design to meet your web design goals.
Level 7: Approval and Launch
Upon completion and approval of the new website, it will be launched onto its domain. Once live, we will submit a site map to Google, Yahoo, and Bing, and other top search engines.
Level 8: Ongoing Analysis and Edits
Each one of my clients receives two hours of post-launch updates included in the contract. After that, any further work or development of new features (if needed) will be billed at a discounted hourly rate for the initial 1st year. After one year, further development, if needed, is billed at our regular hourly rate. This one year long discounted support is meant to help clients in the implementation of their business ideas to their full potential.

Website Speed Optimization
A slow website can make or break whether or not a visitor sticks around. In fact, they say that 57% of online shoppers will stick around for more than 3 seconds.

- Optimize html code
- Merge background images into one image through CSS sprites.
