Web Design Services

Each WordPress website produced by our team is unique and custom built for each client. Our web design services development process begins with a free consultation to determine needs, expectations, and to establish an estimated cost to complete the project.
After the consultation we provide this written estimate of the project scope and estimated hours. If you wish to move forward with the project, we have a simple contract to sign, and submit a deposit to begin. It’s that simple.

Production and Scheduling
The design process as outlined below is a timeline of events during the course of production. One of the first things we do in-house is use a software program to map out a schedule for completing your website project on time and on budget.

Tasks are assigned on each required step and prioritized in order of importance.
You are notified after the completion of each critical step. In the event of an unexpected delay, we will notify and discuss the options with you.


Once the production schedule is finalized and approved by you and your team, we create a website map, which will act as a development guide as well as a content checklist. Details of the site will be discussed and design and inspiration will be discussed.
Part of creating the best layout within the design involves understanding your buyer personas, goals of your website, and the plugin elements your site will be utilizing.
Up to 2 rounds of design revisions are included. Additional design revisions will be billed hourly.

Unlike traditional web designers who create high cost PSD files to hand off to a web developer for conversion into code, we manually build 95% of your website within WordPress’ simple CMS using the design you have approved.

Initial Keyword Research

Now that we have a layout and custom design selected, we begin to think about the buyer’s journey for your industry. We use buyer persona and data from Think with Google to determine the best keywords to build homepage content around.
We divide your keywords into three groups:

  • (1) Just looking,
  • (2) Comparing, and
  • (3) Buy to Ready.

Then, we place content accordingly. This method allows us to track and monitor user behavior on your site better.

Coding and Content

Your navigational structure coding will resemble your keyword groups. However, we will also add secondary and long-tail keyword groups into subcategories of primary groups.

This will help search spiders crawl your website, as well as, make it easier for visitors to drill down into the areas they find most interesting at their point of interest for each visit.

Using the site map as a guide, content and photography will be developed or obtained. Until all content and photography is obtained by Monkeyhouse, no further development will occur. We will not proceed until we have written approval.


Upon content receipt, Monkeyhouse will develop beginning round 1 of development of the website home page and any other uniquely functioning pages that will require design approval. 

Coding and Content Entry

Next, Monkeyhouse will begin to develop the coding, structure and form of the website.  We begin by building one section of the site at a time in the order listed on the approved sitemap.

Mobile CSS, viewports, social media icons, blog subscription forms, and fancy features like sliders, parallax, and ecommerce are implemented and adjusted during this phase.

Content and photography will be entered into the pages and the site will be tested internally.  

Extra SEO, Test Site Upload, and Testing

pon completion of development and content entry, Monkeyhouse will upload the website in a test environment for review. Client may access the website and test its look and functionality and provide feedback and revision guidelines. Up to 2 rounds of final revisions are included – additional revisions will be billed hourly. Once site function is satisfactory, [Client] will sign a ‘Website Sign-Off’ form signifying the completion of website development. Until ‘Website Sign-Off’ is obtained, no further development will occur.

Most sites we build have extra plugins and software tools that allow for better performance and usability of the website.

The most common plugin we recommend is Yoast SEO.

We will go back through every page and ensure each one of your pages and post are as SEO friendly as possible without sounding to much like a canned message.

Upon completion of all integrations and development we run a few tests, get your final approval and launch the site.

Training, Go-LIVE, and Support

Once the website is deemed complete on the test server client will be invited to the Monkeyhouse offices to be trained on how to fully utilize, update and maintain the new site.  

With training complete, client will physically sign a ‘Go-Live Sign-Off’ form / submit an electronic correspondence signifying total project completion.

Your WP website re-design includes 2 hours of training in addition to 45 days of tech support, which is included free of charge after the site goes live.

After that time tech support will be billed at our current hourly rate of $150 [$120 for nonprofits] unless the issue is minor and takes less than 10 minutes to correct.



Once ‘Go-Live Sign-Off’ and final payment is obtained, Monkeyhouse will begin the process of transitioning the new website to a fully online-state.

Client Testimonials

Highly Recommended

I was looking for a Web designer near Leesburg and found out DIR from Nappanee had acquired Monkeyhouse. Working with a high-end marketing agency locally was great. I have been at my location for nearly 2 years, and nobody knew we were here. After the corporate identity package, I have had people asking, “who is the new solar company”. I can’t wait to see what the outcome of my website is.

Highly recommended by Advanced Solar to anyone looking for great results. Thank you Monkeyhouse!
