How I work
and other frequently asked questions
How long will it take and How much a custom website costs?
It is not standard, since not everybody wants the same website, but most of the sites I build take 8-12 weeks from kickoff to launch.
The cost is calculated by estimating the number of hours to design / develop all the features. My hourly rate is 70 euro, which is a medium price.

What are the steps to build a website?
First of all, please complete the contact form to understand what you need. You will receive on email a full brief to complete for the project.
After that we can schedule a meeting (depending on the context – phone /whatsapp / zoom / face to face) to discuss more about: content, design, development, timeline, budget, deadlines.
From these conversations I will create milestones and delivery schedule and we can start.
If you don’t have a design already, I have to design the layout. After it’s approval, we can start the development.
I usually work on a development server, where you will have access with an user/pass anytime during the development.
In the meantime you have to be ready with the content of the website and have a hosting.
After everything is approved and tested we can launch the website.

Who are your clients?
I prefer to receive all the project details from a single person, since the committees have many points of view and things are going slower.
Do your websites work on mobile devices?
Yes, by default all the websites I develop are responsive so they work on mobiles, tablets and desktops/notebooks.
Do you outsource your projects?
No, I don’t outsource any project. If I can’t help you, I will recommend someone for you.
For big projects sometimes I collaborate with senior back-end programmers, but only with your acknowledgment.
Who owns the completed website?
You will own the website after the final payment. All the source codes, all the copyrights.
No strings attached. You will not be forced to work with me in the future, unless you want it that way.
Yet, I will have the right to display on my website print screens of my work, for marketing purpose only.
What are your specialties?
I usually work on WordPress, because the administration is very easy to use for the clients. But I have also worked on Magento and other platforms or custom frameworks.
Do I need separate web hosting?
Yes. Since I don’t operate hosting services you will need a hosting appropriate to the website requirements.
