 OUR DESIGN PROCESS :: WEB DESIGN 101 | WEB PROMO 101 :: back to top

  STLBlues works with businesses in the music and small business areas. We've developed dozens of websites representing Blues festivals, venues, and artists, tourist attractions, restaurants and stores.

Whether you are interested in a start-from-scratch project or simply making some enhancements to an existing website, STLBlues has the ability to create attractive and effective websites—always putting your needs and budget first.

 The Design Process

Our sample Web Design contract
Sample web design contract
The design process at STLBlues follows five steps with a focus on client communication.

Consultation: The first step in our design process is to hold a design meeting via telephone or in person. This meeting helps determine a desired look and feel for your website.

Design Ideas:
We then provide a number of design ideas (called mock-ups) that present various looks, site layout and organization, and navigation scenarios from which the most appropriate design can be selected. These mockups are available online in a private area.

After a look is approved, construction commences on the remaining pages of the website. STLBlues encourages ongoing input during the construction process to ensure that the final product meets your expectations.

Fine Tuning:
After construction of the website is completed, we go over the website with you and make any necessary adjustments.

Quality Assurance:
After the final approval, we perform a thorough test of the site. Testing ensures that the navigation and links work properly, email forms perform as designed, and the website loads quickly and all graphics display correctly using different Web browsers and screen resolutions.

 Web Hosting

STLBlues understands the importance of high-quality website hosting and timely customer support. When you host your site with us, you can feel secure knowing that it is being hosted and managed by our exclusive hosting partner

By choosing STLBlues for your website hosting you are choosing secure web hosting. Our servers are located in a secure facility complete with redundant connections to the Internet, 24-hour monitoring and diesel-powered electrical backup.

Domain name registration is also part of the hosting package. While paying your yearly domain name fee should be a simple process, it often is not. Many domain registration companies try to solicit your business by sending you countless letters and invoices. Our hosting package includes domain name payment so you can ignore these solicitations.

To ensure your clients are able to contact you, the email addresses that you use for your business should include your website domain. For example, if your website address is, you should use email addresses such as Our hosting package includes email alias setup so that you can use email addresses that contain your website domain name.

Design and hosting packages available, starting from $300
