Stages of Your Website Build
- Project Brief & Kick-Off: Let us know your goals and we can make the proper recommendations for design, content, and site plan.
- Content: We finalize a site architecture and start the writing process (if applicable)
- Build: Once the content is finalized, we build the site.

Easy Publishing and Editing
WordPress is a popular open-source content management system. It has thousands of potential plugins to help you manage your website and business. We train you on how to add, edit, delete all content and fully support the system with automatic updates.
Marketing: SEO & PPC
Out of the box, the website is SEO-ready. We use the popular Yoast plugin to help analyze your website’s title tags, meta descriptions, and content. You can further upgrade for additional SEO or PPC assistance if you need backlinks gained, content created, or a full marketing campaign setup.
Fast Development Timeline
The timeline for Essentials web designs is contingent on the client feedback, but most sites can be online in two to four weeks from the start.
What is Included in the Essentials Core Platform
So you’re ready to take the next step and move forward with your Essentials website. That’s great! But, first, you may want to know a little more about the features included in each project.
- Web Design – Arguably one of the most important aspects of your new site. When you choose an Essentials package, you get to choose from a variety of themes, then customize it to suit your firm.
- Content – A beautiful website without the right content won’t do you any good! When it comes to what’s actually written on your site, our team will make sure you have only the best pages to support your unique needs, and help you stand out from the competition (available with the Essentials with Content package).
- Content Management & Support – There’s nothing worse than having a website you don’t know how to update. With our easy to use, content management system, you can update your website, hassle-free, 24/7.
- Advanced Technology – We know that not everyone is a tech maven. But there’s no reason why you can’t become one! From making sure your website meets the latest web standards to testing it in all major web browsers and offering automatic backups, you’ll never have to worry about a technology-related issue.
- Add Ons – There are several ways you can make your website even more customized. Want help with SEO? A new custom logo? A Pay-Per-Click campaign? We’ve got your back.
Customizing Law Firm Web Design Templates
Customization – We take our base themes and make them into something great. We start with a base template (a design that is pre-made) and give you the power to change all the elements. In doing so the template web design becomes a unique reflection of your firm.
When you sign up for an Essentials web design you have the ability to change the following characteristics of your website:
Website Builds Designed Specifically for Law Firms

- Best Practice Themes – Our designs are professional, eye-catching, and beautiful. Improve your law firm’s image today with a better website. We create new templates every year to ensure they follow the best web design practices.
- Mobile-Friendly – With more than one billion mobile devices in use today, mobile websites are no longer optional. Your website needs to convert to iPhones, Android phones, iPads, etc. Each of our designs includes a mobile version so your website will look great regardless of the device.
- Photo Slider – You have just three seconds to impress visitors. Keep them entertained and informed with great photography tied to a key benefit and call to action. Our templates all support rotating images in the tagline area.
- Stock Photos – We include the first five photos from iStock. Need more? We can purchase additional photos for you, or you can send us anything you would like us to use (as long as you have the legal rights to use the image, of course).
