Let’s get started!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BETWEEN NOW AND YOUR NEW WEBSITE
Some useful info for getting started.
I’m so excited to be working on your new website project. Before I can start I will just need a few things from you. It might also be useful for you to know my process and how things will work. As always, if you have any questions, please never hesitate to ask.
After you have signed your proposal and paid your deposit, I’ll need to collect as much content as possible from you. This will include login details, emails, domain and hosting details, logos, images etc required to build your website.
To do this, I like to use an online app called Trello. This helps me get to get things right the first time, meaning less email back and forth, fewer revisions and your website going live faster.
It will also help you see what content you need to organise.
I will set up a Trello Board for your project and invite you to join. I will also set up a dropbox account for you to deposit any large images, logos etc that you may have.
Remember, the more information you give me upfront, the faster I will be able to build your website.
Digital Lemonade is an online business, which means that my main communication is via email. This allows me to take note of all design requests, stick to our deadlines and work as productively as possible.
In-person meetings can be arranged but depending on your package may incur a fee. You’ll also need to take into account that I am based on the Gold Coast.
I’m also happy to arrange a phone or video chat. Please email me so we can arrange a time that suits us both.
My working hours
I’m open Mon – Fri 9am–3pm (Queensland time) excluding public holidays.
I also like to take the occasional holiday or long weekend. I will let you know in advance if any upcoming leave may impact your project in any way.
I have limited working hours during the school holidays, but again, I’ll let you know in advance if this will affect your project.
Well, that will be me, Robyn. I am the creative behind Digital Lemonade and have been creating beautiful websites for the last 7 years.
I absolutely LOVE creating, designing and building new projects, and I make sure I am always learning new stuff to keep up with the continually evolving technology of today.
I also work with some AMAZING copywriters, digital designers, social media experts and techy geeks who help me when I need it. I will always let you know if there is someone other than me working on your project.

*Please refer to your proposal for full details of what is and is not included in your package.
I like to keep projects super simple so that you can follow along with the progress from start to finish. This my seven-step plan.
I’ll send you a brief form asking you to tell me EVERYTHING about your business and how you’d like me to help you. If needed we will also schedule a phone call to discuss what you’ve detailed in your form. From this information, I will provide you with a proposal/quote.
Once you’ve read your proposal, it is now your chance to ask me anything questions you like, to make sure that we are both on the same page with your project requirements.
Once you have confirmed the final quote, you will need to accept my proposal and pay a 50% deposit to get this project started.
Now it’s your turn to do some work. I will send you another form to complete so that I can collect all the content I need from you to build your website.
This is where I work my magic. Once your home page is built I will send you some designs that we nail the look and feel of your website.
Once you have approved my design I will roll them out across all website pages and test that it is all working as it should.
Now that your website is almost ready to launch, you will need to go through each page and check that everything on your brief has been met. You are can request once change per page at this stage.
Launch day baby!
Once you have paid your final invoice it’ll be time to reveal your STUNNING new website to the world.
“Robyn did a fabulous job in creating our first business website, shedeleven.com.au. She understood our vision and was patient and creative. She also remains available on the phone, online and is very reactive. I highly recommend her services!”.”
“I recently used Digital Lemonade to review my website. Robyn made a lot of changes and added some plugins and other technical things to help my SEO, and make my website more user-friendly. She also made a mobile-friendly version. She showed me how to make my blogs more SEO friendly and how to easily update my galleries. Robyn is very knowledgeable, efficient and explains things so that you understand why she has made the changes. Thanks from Hen Photography. ”
“I contacted Digital Lemonade to build a new website for my online biz which included a blog and online shop and also to do a complete transfer over to WordPress from my original Blogspot site. I couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated, understanding and creative person to build my new website. Robyn took my brief and created something better than I could have ever imagined. It’s fresh and fun. She works above and beyond to make sure it’s everything and more, along with sharing endless tips and support. I am so grateful for all the work she has done for Live it. Do it. Highly recommend.”
