What To Expect When Working With Pet Marketing Unleashed: Web Design

Updated: May 6


Every web designer has their own process, investment, design style, platform, etc. So how are you supposed to know who to choose??


My advice? Don't make your decision based on the smaller details (i.e. how long it takes, how much it costs, etc.). You can work around most of those in so many ways, even if you think you can’t. Instead, I recommend seeing which designer you align with the most.


Will you work well together?

Do you like their design style?

Do they seem to actually care about your business?

Do they know your business model?

Are they talking strategy and MORE than just their design skills?


In an effort to make your decision easier (whether it means working with Pet Marketing Unleashed or another designer), we're going to get into some frequently asked questions.


Learn our process and other things you may be wondering before reaching out to us and getting the ball rolling!


Of course, we're happy to go over any other questions, but this is a great way to get started.


Web Design Process For Pet Marketing Unleashed - Pet Businesses

Here are eight questions to ask us OR any other designer you may be working with to design your pet business website:


1. How much time will I need to dedicate to a website design project with Pet Marketing Unleashed?


Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible on you because we KNOW how busy you are! However, there is definitely some time you'll need to invest upfront before the project start date.


This includes:

  • Completing your website questionnaire

  • Filling in a secret Pinterest inspiration board (optional, but helpful for branding projects)

  • Uploading your photos (or getting professional photos taken if you don't have any yet)

  • Getting website copy done (if we're not doing it)

  • Responding to any comments on your GoogleDoc questionnaires to make sure we have everything we need prior to your start date!


For branding and website design projects, we start with a Branding VIP Day. This allows us to work live and collaborate 1:1 throughout the day to get your branding done. We LOOOOVEE Branding VIP Days for this reason - it's such a fun way to work together to build a brand you love. Following your VIP Day, you're welcome to get pictures taken if you choose to do so.


Once the website design is underway, we'll send over the draft for you to comb through and provide feedback! Each project comes with two rounds of web design edits, and oftentimes, clients have very minimal edits so this may not be too much of a time investment.



2. How many revisions do I get?


Each project comes with three hours of web design edits across two separate rounds so things can stay organized and efficient and you can see the first complete round of revisions complete before wrapping up with any final edits.


If for some reason you want more edits (95% of clients don't need this), we can certainly add more hours at our current billable rate.



3. I don’t understand domains or hosting tech. Does Pet Marketing Unleashed help with that?


Nope, we’ve got you covered. We handle all of the backend tech stuff to get your website up, live, and running, and we'll walk you through the entire process as your project gets closer to launching.



4. Do you have payment plans?


Of course! We realize most of our clients have very small businesses with limited budgets, so we try to be as accommodating as possible with payment plans. Typically, branding and website design projects are split into four payments with the final payment sent prior to final website delivery.


If you have a special circumstance, we can work together to build a more customized payment plan based on your needs!



5. Do I have to pay monthly for Pet Marketing Unleashed to maintain my website?


Nope! This is one of our favorite parts of using a platform like Wix - It's SO easy to maintain and update moving forward that you are fully capable of doing so moving forward. We also record a video tutorial for each client on how to edit your website moving forward, with any specific customizations we think you'll do in the future.


However, we do also offer monthly website maintenance plans as well as a la carte 1/2 or full VIP Days should you have any large projects or new services you need help with in the future.


Please keep in mind that you should be updating your website frequently to help with SEO. This means blogging, updating information to make sure it’s correct, etc. If that's something you DON'T want to do on your own, we can be there to help.



6. Does Pet Marketing Unleashed use Wix templates or start from scratch?


With our custom website projects, we start each website completely from scratch!


For those looking for a DIY or semi-custom project depending on preference, time, or budget, we do also have Wix website templates for pet businesses in the Pet Marketing Unleashed Shop!


Not only will you get a beautiful website perfect for pet sitters and dog walkers, dog trainers, or pet photographers, but you'll also have access to the accompanying course, Unleashed Website Academy, that walks you through the set up, SEO and copywriting, and much more!

7. Can I see some of your other designs?


Of course. We have some of our favorite projects in our website portfolio.


We also have some blog posts that go into depth into specific client projects you can read below:



8. How do I get started?


Yayyy, best question all day. 😉 First things first, fill out our inquiry form on our contact page. This will automatically send you more information about the services you're inquiring about and will also include a link to our design application so we can learn more about your needs prior to hopping on a call.


If all looks good, we'll schedule a discovery call to go over the details of your project and get to know each other.


After the phone call, we'll send over your proposal and the rest is history!


If you have more questions, we're just an email away and would love to see your name in our inbox! Feel free to reach out at hello@petmarketingunleashed.com.
