    Project Overview

    Keystone Industries is seeking to hire Brandit, LLC (Brandit) to redevelop their website as well as provide logo, web and branding design with the goal of creating a modern, high-converting e-commerce website that allows them to easily edit their website content using WordPress, while seamlessly managing their products pages, inventory, and orders using BigCommerce’ enterprise-level e-commerce solution.  

    About Brandit

    Brandit is a full-service website design & development company that specializes in building best-in-class websites using a validated WordPress platform built on scalable AWS hosting containers.

    Our company started over 5 years ago after our founder struggled to get a basic website built. He found that in the world of website development, a large portion of service providers are building websites that are either built on proprietary platforms that lock clients’ into expensive hosting plans, or they are built with hard-coded templates making them extremely difficult to edit by your internal team without coding knowledge.

    This motivated us to create a WordPress platform that empowers internal teams to edit their website easily while leveraging a powerful cloud platform and WordPress framework. Our websites combine WordPress’ most widely used page-builder with a validated framework of plugins that are tailored to your business goals. This framework is both easy-to-use and capable of producing some of the most advanced design elements available on the web today. We also offer fully-managed hosting plans that run on dedicated AWS and Digital Ocean containers which are capable of scaling to millions of monthly users.

    Our Approach

    We use a validated four milestone process for all projects engagements. This process is designed to help us dig into the details of your brand and organization during Discovery in order to create the messaging and visual system that captures your brand in a beautiful, high-converting website. 

    Timing

    The site should launch within 90-120 days from the initial discovery meeting. Timing is subject to approvals and content being provided in a timely manner.

    Statement of Work and Estimates

    Price estimates are based on initial objectives and may change as mutually agreed upon tasks and objectives change. Cost estimates and payment schedule are provided in four milestones.

    Full-Service Package Plus Additional Pages (15 Total Pages) 
    Total Estimated Cost: $22,000

    Milestone 1 – Discovery, Wireframing, Content Strategy and Scope of Work
    25% Deposit ($5500) of Total Project Fee is Due to Start Work

    Weeks 1-3

    Brandit and the Keystone Industries will schedule at least two initial conference calls that may be followed by additional phone calls and emails to discuss the core strategy and goals of the design and development project. During the first milestone, Brandit will provide the following services:

    • Confirm site requirements for branding and design as well as sitemap and functionality.
    • Define any plugins or additional development needed to execute on website deliverables such as it’s integration with BigCommerce, Google Tag Manager, CRM’s, and other integrations. 
    • Define product migration process which will include Keystone Industries providing an Excel Spreadsheet with a complete product list that includes SKUs, product images, product descriptions, and any other relevant content or information that needs to be included on product pages. Brandit will perform the migration for up to 3500 products. 
    • Work closely with Keystone Industries to define key user groups that have the largest footprint on the companies growth.
    • Use these user personas in combination with our discovery discussion on brand tone, vision and messaging to create a new logo design.
    • Create detailed wireframes and content strategy deliverable that includes low-fidelity mockups of primary website pages with both content strategy and design notes for each page.

    • Work closely with the Keystone Industries team to create a finalized homepage design that draws from the new logo and wireframe deliverable. This home page sets the tone and design style for other internal pages on the website.
    • Customize and configure the theme, user experience and content organization based on the approved wireframes. Mobile views of the website design will vary based on screen size and platform and will not look exactly the same for all users. However, all designs will be fully responsive and take a mobile-first approach.
    • Create initial internal page layouts.

    Weeks 6-8 Site Development, Initial Product Migration, Internal Page Design, Taglines and 3rd Party Integrations & Content Development

    • Using the product spreadsheet provided by Keystone Industries, Brandit will perform the initial migration of the product using a tool that allows us to map SKUs, product descriptions, and other information directly into the BigCommerce platform. 
    • Create initial designs and layouts for internal pages using the wireframe as a broad layout guide such as but not limited to the homepage, product pages, and testimonial. 
    • Install and start configuration for any additional plugins needed for site functionality and 3rd party integrations as defined during Discovery.
    • Create final graphics for headers and featured graphics as needed using images and content provided by Keystone Industries. This will also include data visualizations for ROI statistics on the home page if applicable. 
    • Work closely with Keystone Industries team to develop the first draft of taglines for all website pages.

    Milestone 3: Design Revisions, Copywriting, Speed Optimization, SEO
    We’ll begin work after 100% of the total project fee ($1650) has been deposited.
