The 10 Step Sirius Process

If you want a cookie cutter website you can find them elsewhere. Each Sirius Media website is hand crafted to tell your story in the most effective way possible. Our sites are finely tuned to engage your web visitors and convert them into customers. It’s both an art and a science. Here’s how we do it.

We’ll meet in via Zoom or talk over the phone to discuss your business, your goals and gather information. You’ll learn about similar Sirius Media projects, and explore new possibilities. Ask questions — we’ll answer them! This in-depth consultation and estimate is free to the customer.

Bids are created in modules, so projects can be phased in as budgets allow. Work begins after the contract is signed and a 1/3 deposit is made. Once your deposit is made, and the contract is signed, your project is in production.

A look at your current site, analytics, and competition helps us know what has worked, what hasn’t, and why. Client homework includes finding examples of sites they love and/or hate.

Gather information available and decide what needs to be written, which images are needed, or video to be recorded, based on site design and clients’ brands. Review, refine, and repeat.

Each step has two rounds of review built into the estimate. Additional changes will be charged by the standard hourly rate.

Every site gets a pre-launch run-through to make sure it works on all modern browsers and mobile devices.

10, 9, 8….. we now have lift-off! We carefully connect your domain name to the site, and make sure your emails are all working. Repointing the domain can take as little as 30 minutes to up to 2 days to complete.

We believe in empowering our clients to use WordPress to maintain their websites and provide each client a Website Guide with step-by-step instructions on how to do simple site updates, including all the security information to maintain the site.

Training is done via Zoom or in person.
