CiviKit Websites: Process & Timeline
When it comes to CiviKit municipal websites, the two most common questions we hear revolve around pricing and timeline. How much does a website project cost? How long does it take to launch a new website?
For our CiviKit Website, we follow a simple and effective timeline process to ensure quick launch of the new site, with low time requirement from the municipal staff. We establish phases and milestones and ensure that we hit the goals for each stage as we move into the next. See our case studies for some examples of our work and processes.
A CiviKit website can take between 1-3 months, depending on the amount of pages that need to be migrated over and if there are any integrations that need to be incorporated into the new website. The average CiviKit website can be launched in 6-8 weeks.
If you're looking for a budget friendly website solution with a short timeline feel free to connect with us, we would love to help support your municipality.
The process of obtaining your new site is very simple, it essentially follows these steps:
- Decide on a template design
- We will brand the website using your municipal colours, logo and fonts
- We transfer content from your existing to new website, providing recommendations on industry best practices for content and page layout
- We deliver a fully functioning website for beta and bug testing
- We train you and help you launch the website
- We provide industry leading customer support and ongoing maintenance for the lifetime of your website
Maintenance and Future Enhancements
CiviKit websites are a hosted solution, meaning we take care of hosting and security for you. You as the municipality will be responsible for on-going maintenance such as content creation and accessibility. There is also a great opportunity to keep improving the site based on user feedback and future functionality enhancements. As we make improvements, add features, or learn more about best practices with our website solution, we will share / update your website platform so you're continuously benefiting post launch.
Our focus on making our timeline as fast, simple, and efficient as possible allows us to bring down the cost significantly. In addition to being low cost, we also provide flexible payment options in order to accommodate for most budgets. For more information on our pricing, please visit our pricing page.
