So what is Website Bootcamp?
Building websites is most likely not your day job. My day job is to give you the tools that you need to focus on whatever is [your day job]. Website Bootcamp is actually a program built in recognition of that fact. I’ve created a process that primarily focuses on giving you a place to quickly document your preferences, goals, products and services so that we can both get to doing what we love.
My super high tech process is a series of worksheets – nothin’ fancy. When you sign up for Website Bootcamp you get a little bit of homework, a lot of attention to details that will benefit your customers and a digital concierge to see you through from start to finish and beyond.

When you need an academy, a membership site, an online store and marketing emails that mail themselves, Website Bootcamp Extra is your jam.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your journey starts with a worksheet. Whoo hoo! The stuff all great dreams are made of!
Seriously though. My Action Plan docs are pretty boss. This workspace will act as the hub for your entire project.
First things first. Schedule your Discovery Session
Block off up to three (3) hours for our discovery meeting. We will use this time to answer your questions, review your Action Plan, refine your goals, & schedule your training(day 2) and launch(day 3) meetings.

Log into the Project Blueprint and fill out the Action Plan
Don’t be afraid to jump right in. Your Action Plan will consist of several questions to express and detail your business concerns and help refine the project goals, milestones and tasks. There’s a comment area in the workspace for you to ask questions and get timely answers while you’re curating your content.
Wanna see a sample??
Day 1. Discovery Session Meeting
The most important task for this session is to set the stage and make sure we have all of the preliminary information necessary to make your project a success. All the information and visuals for unfinished pages, products, emails, & what have you, should be available for this meeting.
Day 2. Site Design
I will spend this day designing your site. I will check in at the end of the day to make sure things are on track and get feedback.
Day 3. Product Marketing Design
Let’s get your marketing in line with your brand. We’ll work on putting together the graphics and emails that you’re going to need for this workflow on day’s 3 and 4.
Day 5. Build
We’ve already done the rundown and decided what we need to do to win. So now we will start pulling things together. Any content that needs to be placed will need to be ready to go today.
Day 7. Edit
We’ll hop on a quick call in the morning to review your site together. You’ll use the visual editor to provide feedback and request changes.
Day 8. Test
Let’s kick the tires and make sure everything flows smoothly by moving through your user journeys thoroughly.
Day 10. Launch
We’ll discuss the final changes and make sure things are meeting your expectations so that we can flip the switch!
2 Week Follow-up. Review
I don’t know about you, but I find that living with something for a couple weeks can give better insight into what’s working and what isn’t. So I schedule a follow-up two weeks out to get your feedback.
Bootcamp Extra is a ten (10) day process.

You can view the full Website Bootcamp Mutual Agreement below – as a matter of fact you have to agree to it to get started, but let’s have a quick review of the pertinent information.
- When you schedule a Website Bootcamp Discovery Session, you are confirming that you are authorized to enter into an agreement on behalf of the business in the session.
- I agree that I have the expertise applicable to perform the tasks associated with Website Bootcamp. I am also authorized to make decisions on behalf of RJ Lewis Digital.
- I will make every endeavor to protect the confidentiality of the information that you provide regarding your business concerns.
- Each Website Bootcamp has a very clear timeline. It is up to both of us to make sure that the work gets done within the budgeted time.
- I will make every effort to ensure that you have a completed project at your scheduled launch. Should your content not be available, I will use placeholder text and images to proceed with your implementation.
- Your Action Plan will clearly outline your design and development milestones. You agree to make every effort to provide feedback during those times.
- Some things are out of my control and outside of the scope of this project such as:
- I will not agree to copy someone else’s work for you.
- While I can help you optimize your website, I cannot literally provide you with website traffic.
- Unless you specifically sign up for a Care & Support Plan, I will only provide content management, maintenance, and support for 30 days following your project.
- The functionality of your website is not guaranteed forever. Technology changes … rapidly. If something that was working stops working without my involvement, I will not fix it for free.
- All Website Bootcamp Discovery Session meetings require a non-refundable 50% deposit. The remaining balance is due on launch day.
- Once your final payment has cleared ownership is assigned as follows:
- You own the graphics and other visual elements created for this project. Please store them safely and securely.
- You own text content, photographs and other data you provided unless someone else owns them.
- I retain the rights for any code that I created on your behalf for this project.
- Software licenses purchased on your behalf are your responsibility and most often incur a monthly or annual subscription. These will be clearly documented in your Strategy Overview.
- This agreement is not transferrable to other parties.
- This agreement is governed by the applicable legal authority of the State of Virginia.
When you schedule your Discovery Session, you will pay a non-refundable 50% deposit.
Once you have paid your deposit, even though your project might not start for a while, I go to work for you. I start customizing your Action Plan and other documents, setting up your workspace, and deciding the best design and display of your content.
When our development is over, you will be expected to pay the remaining balance of the project fee.
