let’s get started
Everything you need to know between now & your new website!
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.
some useful info
After you have signed your proposal and paid your deposit, we’ll need to start collecting all the content 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.
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 also 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 the continually evolving technology of today.
I also work with my 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.

How the process works
1. Getting organised
First I need to make sure I have everything I need to start working my magic. This includes your creative brief, full list of website requirements and any login details if necessary.
2. Mind Mapping
I do love a good mind map! This is the bit where I will arrange all the website content into an easy to use hierarchical structure. It’s officially called a Site Map. This ensures your website visitors can find what they need quickly and easily.
3. Making Magic
Now I’m ready to start designing your beautiful website concept. I’ll show you how your website might work in a browser and how your users will interact with it.
4. The techy stuff
Now I really have to focus and get my geek on, turning your gorgeous design into a fully working website. This phase is the most tricky and can sometimes require several cups of coffee 🙂
5. Let's go live!
Finally, I’ll put your website through my very tight 101 point check before launching it into cyberspace. I’ll also send you all your logins and training videos so you can edit your website.
