Request your free WordPress Designer's Checklist

We’ve developed a simple little checklist so that when the designers we’re partnering with are crafting their perfect site designs, they can pull together all the designs we’ll need for the final build.

Enter your Name and Email below and we’ll send you this simple little checklist so that the next time you’re designing a WordPress website, you can ensure that you have a design for all the WordPress website’s pages.

As a freelance web designer, finding a web developer that you can trust can seem like an uphill struggle.

Here at WPbees, we pride ourselves on on producing quality website development, to a fixed time and budget, and we’re always happy to answer any queries your client may have before, during or after the build.

This is a partnership – one that provides you with the peace of mind that you can take on the largest and most demanding of projects, with the WordPress web developer working alongside you every step of the way.

Our code can transform your designs from PSD to ready and raring to go!

FAQs by Freelance Web Designers

Can you meet my client’s deadline?

One of the first things we’ll discuss is your deadline, your budget and the deliverables. Before starting work we’ll make sure that we’re singing from the same song sheet on all three points so that you (and your client) get real value from working with us.

Can you convert PSD to WordPress?

Yes we can do that. We can convert to simple HTML and then into a custom WordPress theme.

Do you work with premium themes of custom developed themes?

That depends on your design and your client’s budget. We prefer to roll our own, but if budget/timescales are right, we can use an off the shelf theme and customise it based on your design.

Can you add functionality to an existing site?

Absolutely. We can integrate our code into an existing site so it’s as good as, if not better, than what we’re replacing.

Do you just work on large projects?

No we can work on smaller, maintenance based tranches of work. If you would to extend the functionality of a site or build a new WordPress site from the ground up.

Can you start today?

Not usually no!

We do something a little different to some freelance WordPress developers; We schedule work into a calendar!
Honestly, its that simple. We’re neither a code-ninja nor a growth-hacker, We just plan our time and deliver quality work to deadline.

Because we schedule my work in there can sometimes be a short lead-time before we’re able to start working with you. Lead times are normally a few weeks so it’s best to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.

Will you work with existing code/themes/plugins? Are you happy taking over a project?

Absolutely. Sure, we prefer to roll our own, but we frequently work and extend existing custom code and third-party plugins.

The site must be responsive and work on mobiles, is that a problem?

We’ve been working with responsive websites for over eight years. Every site we work on these days is optimised for viewing on many different devices including phones and tablets.

What do you need from me to get started?

We tend to follow a project management process and Basecamp for all communication so we’ll be requesting certain bits of information from you during the project kick-off. With that said, the typical things we tend to need would be layered PSD (Photoshop) files of the designs you want to be created, wireframes (perhaps) and hosting details of the live server.

Will the work you do be search engine optimised?

Wherever possible the sites we work on will be tweaked and optimised to improve their performances within the major search engines.

Do you accept credit cards?

Not yet, but watch this space.

Do you offer aftercare and support?

Most projects we complete, especially if we’re creating something bespoke (or adding functionality that requires a more than a few steps to create) will come complete with a screencast video, showing you (and your client) click by click how to manage and maintain the site we’ve built for you.

If you or your client needs additional ongoing support after the project has been handed over that’s no problem either. We have a number of maintenance plans that can be customised to suit your needs.

Can you provide a white-labelling service for me?

Sure can!

What are the Payment Options?

 

If we’re working on a project (rather than as part of a monthly retainer) then we ask for 50% payment upfront so that we can schedule the work and clear the decks ready for working with you and your team. On completion of the project, the remaining 50% will then be invoiced and will be payable within 30 days.

If you change your mind part way into the project, get cold feet, want to change the direction of the project, get sick and decide that you should spend the next couple of months riding roller coasters in Disneyland, then that’s not a problem. We can renegotiate terms and fees up to the next project deliverable and schedule when and if the next tranche of work will begin and what tasks should be tackled.

Even if we find that we’re just not going to be a good fit (hey, it happens), you also will not be tied into any long contract. We can arrange a full (or partial) refund of any monies if the project breaks down within the first 30 days.

If you’re at all worried about whether to commit to working with us, we can work on a small roadmapping project first to scope out deliverables and any problems the project might face in the coming stages. This can be a great way to sample working with us and for us to find out what it’s like to work with you.
