Examples of How this Might Work

Graphic Designer

You design marketing materials and logos and would like to extend this into building websites. You may have tried your hand at this already and found a lot of surprises and challenges. As an Alliance affiliate you can leverage the RightStart System™ to provide those services, insuring that your client gets all of the technical and "under the hood" details correct and you can be assured of a clear and well documented process.

How do you handle Custom designs or themes?

This is a challenge because on of the ways the RightStart program controls costs is to keep the design or theme choices tightly under control. This is an area where the cost of a project and become out of control. You either you end up working for free or your client gets a big bill and may not like that choice. This is where we would need to work together on the details. Some general suggestions are:

  • Classic Site
    • Client select a design from the designs page that uses the desired starting layout.
    • After purchase the designer recieves the psd file and the breakout images.
    • Using the same layout structure, the designer customizes the design and does a new breakout that matches the samples.
    • This process results in no extra charges within the RightStart System.
  • WordPress Themes - Themes are harder because we are dealing with a dynamic system in which the design components locations can vary from theme to theme. Here is a basic outline of that process.
    • Client selects a theme from the "Recommended Themes" page.
    • After purchase we provide the specific component images used in that theme.
    • Designer customizes components (color swatches, header image, buttons and icons) and retains identical names and sizes.
    • We subsittude those components.
    • If we are asked to move or change positions or sizes of components there will be a customization charge from the RightStart System.

Traditional Marketing or Business Consultant

You client either needs a website or needs to rebuild and existing website that is not meeting the business or marketing goals. You can then work with them on selecting the right product, design or theme and content.

Once you have completed the required worksheets you then can be confident that the business and marketing needs will result in the website you ordered for your client.
