Phase 2: Design

After Bento Sites reviews the Pre-Design Tasks and formulates a design strategy, a hierarchical list of all the pages to be designed (i.e. sitemap) is created. Next, static representations (i.e. wireframes) of every web page are sketched. Website copy is then proofread and edited to ensure it’s concise, keyword-rich and crafts a brand-matching voice with visual balance and contextual flow.

What You Get

  • Up to 12 web pages designed (unlimited blog posts)

  • Implement repairs from your Website Audit, including on-page SEO (keyword research, title tags, meta tags, header tags, internal links, image file names, alt text, etc.)

  • Import and format blog posts

  • Proofread and copyedit

  • Resize and compress images

  • Favicon (browser icon)

  • iOS bookmark icon

  • Social sharing logo

  • Optional: Search for royalty free images on Unsplash or Getty Images

  • Everything else outlined in the proposal

Phase 3: Develop

Static representations of near-final pages (i.e mockups) are created. Third-party accounts are connected and setup and, finally, password-protected web pages go online.

What You Get

  • Up to 12 web pages built

  • Setup redirects (if applicable)

  • Optional: Setup G Suite (Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, etc.)

  • Optional: Connect social media accounts and third-party integrations

  • Optional: Connect email service provider (Squarespace Email Campaigns, ConvertKit or MailChimp)

  • Optional: Setup add-ons from the proposal

  • Everything else outlined in the proposal

Phase 4: Deliver

The final invoice is paid. An invitation is sent to become the website owner and setup billing for Squarespace. Domain names are connected, transferred or registered. Redirects are set up and, if applicable, any Squarespace add-on are purchased.

The project concludes with 1 hour of Squarespace training and enabling the live website.

How it Works

Step 1: Get a Website Audit

Knowing what’s right, wrong and missing from your website is the first step. Start with a Website Audit. If you’re unsure, start with the free option.

Step 2: Accept the Proposal

After completing a Website Audit, accept the free proposal. Then, receive an invoice to pay the 50% deposit.

Step 3: Gain Access to the Client Portal

Gain access to the Client Portal to complete Pre-Design Tasks and schedule Project Calls. Tasks and calls are due at least 7 days before your project starts.

Step 4: Track the Milestones

The design process is divided into 4 phases — Discover, Design, Develop and Deliver. Track the project milestones, so you always know what’s happening and when something’s due.

Step 5: Go Live

The project concludes with 1 hour of Squarespace training via screen-sharing on Google Hangouts. At the end of the training, enable your live website.

Website Redesign FAQ

Q: What's a Website Redesign?
A: Bento Sites migrates your site from your current content management system (Wix, Wordpress, etc.) to Squarespace and then redesigns and rebuilds the site.

Q: Will I lose traffic when my site is migrated to Squarespace?
A: Site migrations are never 100% smooth. You'll likely experience an initial dip in traffic.

Q: I'm interested in working with Bento Sites, but don't want to use Squarespace. Will you work with another platform?
A: Not at this time. I work exclusively on the Squarespace 7 platform. I've been using Squarespace since Version 5 because of its design and ease-of-use.

Q: How much is a Website Redesign?
A: From $2,000.

Q: How long does a Website Redesign take?
A: Most projects are completed in 2 weeks. Smaller projects can be completed in 1 week.

Q: Will I own the website?
A: Absolutely. Bento Sites is just the designer.

Q: Will I be able to request changes during or after the website's launched?
A: Up to 2 revisions are allowed during the project for most phases. In addition, you’ll receive 1 week of email support after the website is completed. Request for changes after the website is completed will be invoiced.

Q: I need a large website with a lot of customization. Can you help me?
A: No. Bento Sites helps small businesses with small websites and designs exclusively on the Squarespace consumer platform.

Q: I'm not a previous client, but can I hire Bento Sites for some work?
A: I’m afraid not. Bento Sites only provides hourly service to former clients.

Q: Does Bento Sites specialize in SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?
A: We follow white hat SEO best practices to make SEO part of the design strategy, not an afterthought.

Q: Can you move my domain with the Website Redesign?
A: Yes. As long as you provide login credentials to your domain registrar in the Pre-Design Tasks.

Q: I don't have any photos of my business and can't afford a professional photographer. What should I do?
A: Use a modern smartphone camera (iPhone 8+ or newer) might be enough. Bento Sites can also adjust or tint the images to make them appear more professional.

Q: How do I provide my website copy, images, usernames, passwords, etc.?
A: Bento Sites uses its Client Portal to complete Pre-Design Tasks and schedule Project Calls. In addition, Google Drive is used for collecting website assets (photos, graphics, audio, video, etc.). Both are free of charge for clients.

Q: How long will I have access to the Client Portal?
A: The Client Portal remains open for 7 days after the project is completed. On the 8th day, access to the Client Portal closes.

Squarespace FAQ

Q: What's Squarespace?
A: Squarespace is the modern, secure and beautiful all-inclusive website builder and CMS (content management system). There's no software to download nor install — simply login from a computer from a modern browser.

Q: Will I be able to update and manage the website myself?
A: Yes. Once the project is completed, Bento Sites provides clients with 1 hour of Squarespace training on launch day and 1-week of post-launch email support. In addition, Squarespace provides 24/7 award winning customer service. If you still need help, hire Bento Sites at an hourly rate.

Q: There are several free and inexpensive Website Builder and CMS platforms. Why Squarespace?
A: Unlike free and cheaper DIY platforms, Squarespace offers an all-inclusive package with high-quality software that's beautiful and user-friendly for clients to update and manage themselves.

Q: Is Squarespace secure?
A: Yes. Squarespace handles all of the security upgrades for their servers and the technical details to ensure your website is always up and running. In addition, since customer payment data isn't stored on Squarespace, customers don't need to worry about data breaches.

Q: Is Bento Sites a Squarespace site?
A: Yes. I use the Brine template.

Q: Can you import my blog to Squarespace 7?
A: Blogs can be imported from Squarespace 5, Blogger, Tumblr and WordPress. If you don't use any of those platforms, each blog post will need to be independently copied into Squarespace.

Q: Can I keep my business email address (myname@companyname.com) once I move to Squarespace?
A: Yes. If you don't have a business email, Bento Sites can acquire one for you through Squarespace's integration with Google's G Suit.

Q: How can I find my sitemap?
A: https://yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml

Q: Will my Squarespace website have an app?
A: No. A website is a collection of pages to be viewed on the internet — not an app. However, iOS (iPhone, iPad) users can create shortcuts to their home screens that look just like app icons. To do this, open Safari on iOS. Click the Action Arrow. Click Add to Home Screen. Try saving the Bento Sites website to your home screen now.

Q: Does Squarespace have a mobile app?
A: Yes, the Squarespace App (iOS) gives you the power of Squarespace at your fingertips.

Q: How can I monitor the traffic on my website?
A: Use Squarespace Analytics while logged into your site. You can also view this data with Google Analytics (iOS) (Android).

Q: How will my website look on mobile?
A: Wonderful! Websites are optimized for mobile, tablets and desktops.

Q: Will my website always be online?
A: As long as the annual Squarespace subscription is paid and you don't disable your site's main navigation, a Squarespace site will remain online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Q: Can customers contact me through the website?
A: Yes. Forms can be set up to automatically deliver messages to your inbox. In addition, forms can also be used to collect information with integrations for Squarespace Email CampaignsMailChimp and Google Docs. Other options include the following:

  • Add a phone number, email address and mailing address.

  • Add an online form that Squarespace will forward to your email.

  • Add live chat.

  • Add help desk software.

  • Add social accounts.
