Getting your website right means figuring out how to say what you need it to say, in a way that resonates with visitors (and actually works).
It isn't just about making it look nice. It's making it look right - for your target audience. It's making it do all the right things to convey the emotions and feelings you want to convey, to give the impression you want to give, and inspire people to take the action you want them to take. It's about making all those things intentional, rather than accidental.
Crafting a web design for your website is science as much as art, and at Thrive we know how to balance the two to deliver supreme bang for your buck. We take your target audience, your business strengths and personality, and all the details that go into who you are, and then design and build amazing websites that help take your business to the next level.
It's not impossible to get a website that delivers a good result. But when the processes and the methods aren't based on science and marketing experience, as well as wordpress design expertise, you're relying on what will basically be a designers best guess at what could work.
Understanding who you are, who your audience is, and then being able to connect those two and understand how that needs to impact the design... that takes both skill, and strong processes.
It makes all the difference between a nice site that makes you look good, and a nice site that makes you look good and helps you achieve your business goals.
Yes! In fact, we are only looking for long term relationships.
After your website is created our team is available to you for WordPress support and your website will be put on our website care plan. We are also a top Seattle Search Engine Optimization provider if you are looking to get more traffic and leads to your brand new website. We can be as involved or in the background as you need.
Building a website is like constructing a house. The cost can vary greatly depending on the size, complexity, materials, and features you desire. Just as you can build a simple, affordable starter home or a luxurious, custom-designed mansion, a website's cost can range from a basic, budget-friendly option to a high-end, bespoke solution.
The final price will depend on your specific requirements, design preferences, and the many add-ons that we offer (branding, photography, copywriting).
We fix bid our projects after collaboratively scoping out the project with you. Please visit our pricing guide for more information.
The timeline for building a website can vary based on the project's complexity and specific requirements. On average, our projects take between 8 to 12 weeks to complete. This timeframe allows us to carefully plan, design, develop, and test your website to ensure that it meets your expectations and aligns with your goals.
Throughout the project, we update you on our progress every week. Rest assured we are committed to delivering a high-quality website that meets your needs in a timely manner.
When you receive a project quote from us, we will always include a time estimate along with the anticipated price.
Knowing what we are going to do (and in what order) before we do it is critical to your success. Take a look at our 7 step process (video) to get a deeper understanding of our process.
Lack of transparency around the process of building a website is a hallmark of an unorganized agency. Our goal is to have the best design and development process of any Seattle web design agency. In fact, we have created a nine-step blueprint that outlines our process from start to finish.

There are some instances where you can.
However, many times we find one of two reasons why our clients needs to redo their website every 5-6 years.
But this doesn't mean your existing website is automatically bad or wrong. One of the first things we do with a potential client is assess whether they even need a new website. Sometimes, your current website is totally fine and just needs some updated content, or potentially some more marketing efforts. If that's the case, we let you know (in fact, we only end up working with about 10% of businesses that contact us).
Ultimately, our role is to guide our clients to the right solution for them, whether that solution includes Thrive or not.
We have a marketing department dedicated to your SEO, SEM, and social media marketing needs. We work together with our SEO experts to ensure that the back end of your website is set up with SEO best practices in mind. Our SEO team is integrated into the web design process to ensure that your website is set up to capture traffic from start to finish.
We provide keyword research to get your title tags, meta descriptions, and headings visible to Google. Once your site is built, you can hire us for a monthly SEO retainer so that your website gets maximum exposure on Google.

We exclusively create WordPress websites because we feel it’s the best platform for the majority of small- to medium-sized businesses.
Ultimately, that's why we chose the technology to focus on: we know it really well, the interface is relatively easy to pick up for users, it's widely supported, and it offers a lot of flexibility both short and long term.
We have designed our process to ensure that your voice is heard throughout. We start with a questionnaire and an in-depth meeting where we ask all kinds of questions to learn more about your business and goals, who your audience is, what you’re happy with and what you think could be improved, and what role you want your website to play in your marketing.
Once you become a client, there is a weekly touchpoint during your project and you'll review designs directly with our head designer. We have no junior staff: our team is not learning on the job.
We want you to be 300% happy with your project and have developed a process that minimizes your risks of getting something you don't want.

All of Thrive's staff work remotely from their home-based offices, and are based either in the USA or Australia (the accents are so cool).
All of our strategy and design sessions are via web conferencing software and screen sharing.
Our CEO Noah can meet in person anywhere in Seattle.
