Website Adoption Form

The process of finding and owning a website is somewhat similar to owning a pet. Websites, like pets, come in various shapes, sizes and breeds. Each one has its’ own set of needs and specific care level.

Over the years, I have found that it is sometimes hard for those of us who don’t design websites for a living to specify exactly what we want for our website. That is where this document comes in.

If you would prefer that I respond over the phone, please let me know what number to dial.
This is the spot for you to share with me anything else you think is pertinent about the project.

And, we are done. Now that you have given me all of this very useful information about your proposed website, there is just one step left.

All you need to do now is click the button to send this form to me. Thank you, for your interest in owning a website.
