Step 1: Purchase Genesis + Child Theme
Visit the StudioPress website to purchase your own copy of Genesis and your favorite Genesis child theme. Or if you prefer, you can purchase a Genesis child theme from a third-party developer instead.
Step 2: Choose a Service Package
Next, choose the service package that’s the perfect fit for your project and goals. Whether you just need someone to set everything up or if you also need to make some design changes, I can help! You’ll complete a form where you can select the package you want and share the details of your request.
Step 3: Discuss Project Details
After receiving your information, I’ll review everything and then contact you with any questions and the scheduling details. I’ll also send a service agreement outlining the full project scope and an invoice for the payment (the Custom Genesis Theme package will be broken into three payments).
Step 4: Work is Completed
I’ll get busy setting up your new theme (and customizing it if you purchased that service). When I’m finished, your site will be in “move-in” condition. All you’ll need to do is log in and start adding your content and images. I’ll also collect the final payment for Custom Genesis Theme packages.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete a project?
Basic Setup and Basic Setup + Customization packages: 1 business day
Custom Genesis Theme package: 4-6 weeks
Please note that there may be a delay if there is:
— slow communication and/or feedback.
— a change in project scope (such as making major changes after coding is complete).
— a late payment.
Are there any requirements?
You must purchase the Genesis Framework and a Genesis child theme separately. Genesis must be purchased directly from StudioPress. Genesis child themes can be purchased from StudioPress or third-party Genesis child theme developers.
Also, you must already have a domain name, a hosting account, and WordPress must be already installed on your server.
When is payment due?
Basic Setup and Basic Setup + Customization packages:
Payment is due before work begins.
Custom Genesis Theme package:
Payments are split into three equal parts:
1. After we've agreed on the project and decided to work together.
2. When the theme design has been finalized and before development begins.
3. Before the fully developed theme is installed on your site.
Will you add my pages, images, products, etc. for me?
Content management is not included in the service packages. Content management is defined as the adding or editing of posts & pages, adding new links to your navigation menu, adding categories and tags, adding products, etc.
In general, when I’m finished setting up and/or customizing the "look and feel" of your theme, you’ll be able to log in and start adding all your text, images, products, etc. If you need help with content management, please let me know when you contact me and I can add this service for a fee.
What if I need more customization help?
If you need more than the font, color, and minor CSS changes that are included in the Basic Setup + Customization package (for example, adding a brand new widget area), but you don't need a fully custom Genesis child theme, let me know when you contact me and I can add additional customization services for a fee.
Do you offer site maintenance services?
I do not offer site maintenance services at this time.
