We'll then include the rest of your stakeholders and discuss the best options based on your needs. At the end of this call we'll provide a ballpark estimate.

step 3: your proposal

If your project is a match and you are happy with our ballpark estimate we'll write up a proposal for your review.

Work with Thrive to explore your company's needs and develop/execute an online strategy. This can include new branding, photography, copywriting, web design, and digital marketing.

As part of this strategy we'll narrow down exactly who your ideal customer is and how your offer solves their needs.We'll also get clear where your website fits into your sales process..

faqs.

This is our #1 question and the only way to give an honest answer is for us to have a conversation with you.

We must fully understand your business, your offer, your target audience, your goals, and what problems the project will solve before we know what needs to be done. This will dictate the final price.

We believe that prescription without diagnosis is malpractice.

Here are a few initial questions to help you determine the scope of your project:

  • Who is your ideal customer?
  • What is the #1 action you want your ideal customer to do when they interact with your website?
  • How will we know this project has been a smashing success 12 months from now?
  • What marketing are you doing now for your business? How will this change once this project is complete?
  • Do you sell products online?
  • Do you already have a logo and does it resonate with your ideal customer?
  • Are we replacing an existing website
  • What is and isn't working on your existing site?
  • How many monthly visitors do you receive right now? How many become leads? How many of those leads become customers?
  • Do you have a professional copywriter on staff?
  • Do you already have professionally shot photos?

Absolutely.

In fact, here is a video showing exactly how user friendly the editing experience is.

No coding, no fuss, no needing to call a developer.

100%

We understand that owning your website & content, even for a small business, is a critical part of solidifying a future online.

Once we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:

  • You own the graphics and other visual elements that we create for you for this project. We will provide you with the original vector files as well. No funny business here!
  • You also own text content, photographs, and other data you provided unless someone else owns them.
  • We’ll give you a copy of all files which should be saved in a safe location. We are not required to keep them or provide any native source files we used to make them if they are lost or corrupted.
  • WordPress is an open-source content management system. You have full rights to the usage of the code as well including the CSS, HTML, PHP, or other programming used.

Our #2 most asked question!

The time required to design your website is determined by three (3) factors.

  1. The scope of the work to be done (logo, copywriting, photography, web design, etc).
  2. The availability and skill of the team that is building it.
  3. How quickly the client can provide feedback and their availability for any necessary team meetings.

That being said, an authority website takes Thrive 10-14 weeks including professional copywriting, photography, design, development, and rounds of feedback.

E-commerce and membership can take 4-6 months and is this is greatly dependent on the number of features & products.

If you want to work with a web development company in Seattle that will take the time to determine an exact scope, cost, and timeline for your endeavor, contact us and let's talk.

For a full-scale project, we bid a fixed rate for a fixed scope. Contact us to get an idea of what that rate may be for your specific project.

For ad-hoc work, our billable rate, as of January 1st, 2020, is $125 per hour and we bill in 1/4 hour increments and invoice at the end of each month.

Clients must be on one of our WordPress care plans to be eligible for ad-hoc work. After all, how can we work on a website that isn't consistently taken care of?

Want to add new designs or features down the road? No problem.

Working with a new partner requires time, energy, and money and it's important you feel comfortable with that partner before going all in. The world of website agencies is full of overpromising and underdelivering and, frankly, it drives us nuts.
 
While we don't work for free, there are a few ways you can take us for a test drive and see if we mesh.
  • Set up Google Analytics so that you know who is coming to your website, where they are coming from, what search terms they are using to find you, what content they are consuming on your website, and what content leads to a sale.
  • Set up a Facebook Pixel in preparation for retargeting your website visitors with Facebook ads. Please start this at least 90 days before you'd like to run any Facebook advertising. 
  • Audit your website and find the ten (10) lowest hanging fruit action items in order to increase conversions, SEO, performance, security, and usability. 
  • Have us rewrite your homepage or create a blog post for you.
  • Invest in a Local SEO tune-up including Google My Business setup & citation submission.

We promise to be responsive, forthcoming, and have your best interests in mind.

If you'd like to try one of these starter services or learn about other options please drop us a line.

If they are awesome, yes.

We can extend your existing marketing firm with graphic design, copywriting, photography, and help from our SEO specialists to get you more traffic.

However, there is a benefit in combining your internet marketing agency with your development company.

We can provide that solution for you.

Online marketing services require a different set of tactics than what some traditional marketing agencies are equipped to handle.

Thrive’s process made everything easy on me

I spent several months vetting web design companies to find the right one to design and develop a complex system of dispensary websites for my organization. I couldn’t be happier with the choice we made. Noah and Adam were, and have been, an absolute pleasure to work with. Amazing communication, flexible scheduling and great attention

Great website design & attention to detail

Thrive delivered a functionally and aesthetically pleasing website that has received positive feedback from clients. The team was accessible and executed changes meticulously to ensure the product reflected my vision. They were a dependable partner that exceeded expectations. Thrive developed an e-commerce website to centralize online purchases for an antique business. Following a discovery phase,

I always knew where we were on the project and my sales have increased 25%

Sales have increased substantially since the new launch. The Thrive team is thorough, patient, and efficient.  High-quality results, expertise, and staff that works with passion are what sets them apart from other developers. With my old e-commerce shop, I would typically get only three orders on the weekends; now, I get anywhere from 10-15 orders.

Thrive was dedicated to getting it our website right the first time

Thrive’s use of technology made the entire experience pleasant. Teleconferencing was simple and effective. Thrive sent video tutorials to help keep the deliverables on track and they were quick and easy to access and understand. Customers remark how easy to navigate the website is, and external stakeholders praised the aesthetics and structure of the solution.

We now have 20+ new leads a month. Our increase in revenue has allowed for the hiring of a third provider.

Their personal touch and confidence during the whole engagement was crucial, given the fact that we didn’t know much about how this all works. Having never been through a new design before, we appreciate that they walked us through the process step-by-step. We had full visibility into the design and could make tweaks as needed

I save 10 hours a week on admin time alone with our new website. My life is changed!

Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and online tracking of sales has improved since the engagement began. Thrive’s attention to details were hallmarks of their work. Their excellent listening skills made them a valuable partner. I’m most impressed with the way they’re willing to work with me on the specifics of our site. I’ve been
