Launching your site is not the end of a process. Every website that stays productive and relevant needs care and maintenance. At the end of our work together, I will leave you with a checklist. Most clients use that for a while and then fall off keeping up with a site maintenance schedule (mostly because they have many other important things to work on). When you use my support services, it’s off your to do list and done for you. See the details.
We’ll discuss your project funding goals at our initial meeting. The mission of It’s Grave is to support organizations that often don’t have funding but have a community that supports them. Many small donations often fund a whole project. If for some reason you aren’t able to meet your goals during our work together, you’ll have the option to future give over time. We’ll discuss details before any work is started. I’m as invested in your success as your community is.
Here’s where It’s Grave is unique. Funding will not get in the way of our working together. I take on a committed clients so I can give them exceptional service. Funding is a constant issue for lots of companies, in a nutshell: website redesigns are time consuming and costly to launch. Of course you can switch to a free website platform, and maybe you’ve been spending time doing that. Or leave your outdated site as is which could keep people who need you from contacting you. Having someone collaborate with you saves you tons in time and headaches.
Because of the approach I use, the expectation is that you, your community, your supporters, have the option help fund your website project. A unique part of my approach is, during our initial meeting we’ll outline how you can introduce your site redesign to your supporters and community to help gain interest in your site project, funding for your project can grow while your project is underway. Contact me and we’ll talk about your options.

Chances are by the time you’ve gotten in touch with me, you’ve known you wanted to start or fix up your site for a very long time. As familiar as I am with the process, it’s important we are both aligned with the vision, the plan and the goals. The value of a project plan is a bit like having a map handy. The place we want to get to won’t change, but the route we take may vary a little as we go along, barring significant late changes. So I use a light project plan that has goals and suggested deadlines. The project plan includes everything it will take to get to our destination of launching your site, but allows for changes when needed. After our Strategy meeting when you approve the project plan it is our map. It’s important to note that I understand you might find out you’ve forgotten something important you want included once we get underway. Those types of scenarios can change our time frames.
It depends on the size and features of the site you have now and what your goals are for your new site. Taking on this kind of project is important for your organization, it’s important we’re both realistic. Less complex sites will take anywhere from 10 to 20 weeks. If your project is quite complex, you should plan for up to 6 months.
