Written by Adriana @ SunCoast Media
Prepared Date: 21th March 2023 | Exp Date: 21th April 2023
Overview and Goals
We are very excited at the prospect of assisting you to build a professional online presence for your business. Please consider the proposal below for your business website design that is SEO conscious. Taking into consideration what I think you are looking for in a website I do suggest small web design package + basic shopping cart for enquiries only, as I feel this would best suit your needs.
Adriana – SunCoast Media
Scope of Services
We begin by performing a rigorous audit of your market space. Who is the core audience? What are their concerns and values?
The first step is we need to thoroughly understand your business, your business goals, your customers and their expectations and behaviour, and how your website factors into all of it.
We’ll also look at the competitive landscape to establish context and benchmarks for how your site should function and then improve on that. This stage will give us the foundation to move forward with the right recommendations for the design and development of your new responsive website.
Prototyping & Design
Prototyping involves rapid & collaborative iteration on wireframe concepts, layouts & directions.
Once we’ve agreed on the finalised prototype we’ll create a high fidelity mockup of the final product with dummy text.
We’ll set to work outlining interface layouts, including the home page and the blog template (if applicable), and any additional page templates needed. Wireframes look like simple skeletons of your website without the visual polish of the finished design, allowing us to experiment and iterate on solutions quickly so that we have a good sense of how the content should be laid out across different screen sizes.
Once you’ve approved the design, we’ll start building them.
After testing the static layouts. We will test the site across different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer 9+) and devices (iPhone, Samsung ect.). Any bugs that arise during testing will be fixed prior to launch.
Launch & Measure
Finally, we go live to the world and measure the return on investment to you, with detailed analytics.
The launch process is a carefully considered one. We need to ensure email addresses don’t go down, the site doesn’t have any downtime, any old links are re-directed to the new pages and several other things.
This is something we’ve done hundreds of times before. We operate to a checklist which we’ve curated over the years and it is yet to fail us.
We always launch late on a Friday night to give us the best chance of ironing out any issues that arise.
You can sleep easy knowing We’ll be on-call over your launch weekend to ensure everything goes according to plan.
Content for the Website
*Please note that content is to be provided by the client. We understand that this might not be your cup of tea. This is why we also provide a copy writing service and only engage professional copy writers.
Normally a solid call to action attracting email subscribers from which a slow burn relationship can be formed.
We suggest new team photos and action shots of people working.
These are great and far better than stock photos.
Listing clients are great, testimonials are better but giving it some context in a case study is considerably better.
A range of case studies will serve you for years to come.
This should be split up into the primary reasons people buy your services, with labeled headers to match. For example ‘Bookkeeping’, ‘Tax Savings’ and ‘Audits’. Doing this means people can relate your headers to solutions for their problems in a fast and effective manner.
Call to Action
We’ll strategically place a contact form at the bottom of each page that makes sense.
How do you work? What’s required of your clients? It’s worth detailing your process in advance
It’s worth giving an indication of your pricing. This will typically reduce the number of enquiries but increase the quality of those enquiries markedly.
In this day and age, it’s vital to give away content and advice in advance in order to “win people over” and convince them you’re the right company for the job. Frequently asked questions from the kinds of clients you want more of is a great place to start when thinking about what content to produce.
We endeavour to have a home page template ready within 10-14 business days after receiving a brief from you. After that, if the content and images are supplied in a timely manner, we should have a website ready for final approval just 7 business days later!

Terms & Conditions
What do both parties agree to?
SunCoast Media Declaration: All work will be conducted in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavour to meet every deadline set and maintain confidentiality of everything you provide to us.
Getting Down To The Nitty Gritty
We create look-and-feel designs, and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs iteratively and use predominantly HTML and CSS so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use visuals to indicate a creative direction (colour, texture and typography.) We call that ‘atmosphere.’
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review our work and provide feedback. We’ll either share a Dropbox, Google Drive folder or Github repository or development site with you and we’ll have regular contact.
If, at any stage, you change your mind about what you want to be delivered and are not happy with the direction our work is taking we’ll give you your money back unless the design has been signed off.
Unless agreed separately, we’re not responsible for inputting text or images into your content management system or creating every page on your website. We provide professional copywriting and editing services, so if you’d like us to create new content or input content for you, we can provide a separate estimate for this.
Graphics and photographs
You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, we can suggest stock libraries. If you’d like us to search for photographs for you, we can provide a separate estimate for this if required.
Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), Mozilla Firefox and Opera. We’ll also test to ensure that people who use Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 for Windows get an appropriate experience. We won’t test in other older browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need an enhanced design for an older browser, we can provide a separate estimate for that.
Mobile browser testing
Testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using. We test our designs in: iOS 9, 10, 11: Safari, Google Chrome Android: Google Chrome on Android Emulator.
We won’t test in Blackberry, Opera Mini/Mobile, specific Android devices, Windows or other mobile browsers unless we agreed separately.
We offer support for website hosting, email or other services relating to hosting.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
We cannot guarantee any improvement to a search engine ranking, nor can we promise to get a site higher up or to the ‘top of Google’, but we build every site in a way that is accessible to search engines in an effort to increase its chances. We build each and every page following Google standards to increase your chances of showing up at the top of the Google search.
Note: SunCoast Media provides SEO Packages and this should be considered as soon as your website goes live. Please contact us directly for more information.
Changes and revisions
We don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price at the beginning of this contract is based on the number of weeks that we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we am happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for the additional work.
That said, I can’t guarantee that my work will be error-free and so I can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised me of them.
