This is my Web design vs. Website Development step - instead of putting lipstick on a $60 template that every other company already uses, I show you an original concept. You just need to give me constructive feedback.

You get to see most pages at some degree of functionality.
At this point I suggest you start your first marketing campaign, by at least distributing business cards. This small effort will help generate that first wave of visitors the day your new Web design launches.
3. 2. 1. lift-off! Your Website is live, and that tiny bit of marketing you did during the Design & Development step should have some traction.
Don't forget - your Website is the center of your marketing universe, and it needs to be managed and maintained to keep visitors and search engines alike coming back.

Custom Design that lasts longer.
You would be crazy to copy a competitor's product packaging. So why copy their Website design?
I don't use templates for Website projects for the same reasons I don't use clip-art for graphic design projects - they're too easy to spot, too difficult to manipulate and an insult to my paying clients.
