• Q: How does the process work, to build a new website?

    A: Typically it goes like this:

    1. Parameters of the website are defined and agreed upon. This begins as an RFP (Request For Proposal) or Project Document/Specification Document ("Spec" for short). If the client does not have this available, they must create it or have the developer create it. More information on the Project Document or RFP may be found HERE.

    2. Deposit paid by client

    3. Design finished and approved by client

    4. Development begun

    5. Website approved by client on Halo Creative's server and paid for by client

    6. Website "pushed" to client's server and made "live" for all the world to see.

  • Q: Can I pay with a credit card?

    A: Yes. We accept all major credit cards.

  • Q: Can I pay with Paypal?

    A: Certainly.

  • Q: I've had several failed attempts at making a website -- how do I know Halo Creative will be any different?

    A: It is important that you do your research on the company and know exactly what that company is promising, and how they plan to deliver. We have an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau, we offer total transparency with our methods, sample agreements and contracts, as well as a professional project management solution via Basecamp. We also do not take on projects that are not a good fit for us or if we are already overwhelmed with projects and clients. Clients must also have a complete specification document (spec) that describes all of the features they require -- if it's not in the spec, it will not be delivered.

  • Q: How long will it take?

    A: Anywhere from two weeks (logo and website design provided by client) to fifty weeks. It depends on the website and website client. The big variables are A) how complex the website is and B) how long the design process takes. Both of these depend largely on the client and the specific project. Correct estimates cannot be made until the specification document is finalized.

  • Q: Can you design my logo?

    A: Absolutely! We offer a range of options and packages, from the "mom and pop" startup to medium-sized corporations.

  • Q: I'm confused and don't know where to start. Help!

    A: Building a website is extremely technical and specialized. The best thing to do is to simply find a good, simple dictionary that defines the technical terms and just start looking them up. You might start with terms like "web page", "website", "browser" and "HTML."
