What happens during the consultation?

Assess your needs

They often dub these "discovery calls". We're here to discover each other and whether we are a good fit. There's no pressure, just pure conversation.

Provide a solution

Our job is to provide you with some suggestions and options in regards to which path you may want to explore, even if it means exploring other businesses (integrity is our practice).

gain some clarity

We've answered our most asked questions.

There’s no need for preparation.

The purpose of this call for us to see whether we are a good fit. You’ll get to see how we do business and attach a face to the online interactions we have. We’ll also have the privilege of understanding what your business is about, your desires, and how we can help you accomplish them. If we realize that your goals are beyond the scope of what we offer, we will be upfront and honest with you. 

The short answer is “no”. Very rarely do we provide a direct quotes during the consultation. In many cases, we have to assess the information you’ve given us and combine that with research of the proper tools we plan to utilize. In order to give you the most accurate quote, we provide you with one once we’ve completed all of the necessary steps.
However, we do provide you with a starting price on the respective pages of each service we offer.

Of course!! You can invite your top 2 key members, but keep in mind that your time slot is 30 minutes. More voices may result in less time that you’re actually able to articulate your needs. Consider holding a team meeting BEFORE the consultation to be sure that you are all on the same page about what you would like to achieve.

Absolutely! All of our websites are created to fit all screen types because we understand that the first time a prospect encounters your website will most likely be on a mobile device.

We currently do not offer hosting, and encourage you to purchase your own hosting. We do make recommendations and allow you to choose based on your needs. We want you to OWN your brand, and that includes hosting. We would hate for you to run into an issue where you are not in control.

We create all of our websites through This means that you need to have a host (i.e. GoDaddy, HostMonster, WPEngine, etc.),  of which you get WordPress for free. No, this is not the same as WordPress through a host allows for much more customization and is also more cost effective.

Here at Gyidi, one of our pillars is ownership. We find no delight in holding your assets over your head. Once your project is complete and fully paid for, you will be the OWNER of all of your assets. We provide you with all of the files that were created for you. While there may be some ongoing tech fees (discounted tools), you can separate yourself from us and be in charge of those tools for yourself (although it will cost you more). For example, we charge a lower yearly fee for Elementor Pro, since we are licensed for a certain number of websites.

You are required to pay 50% before the project start date, and the other 50% just before completion. If you are booking a project more than 4 weeks away, you will then be required to split that first 50% into two payments (25% upfront to reserve your spot on the calendar, and the other 25% before the project start date). The additional 50% will be required just before completion.
Larger projects can also be split up into more payments that are spread out, but that can always be discussed. All deposits and payments are non-refundable as they cover any work that is completed.

Absolutely!! Please keep in mind that our prices may increase at any time, due to business growth, new skills, experience, and increased demand. Due to these ongoing changes, our quotes stand for 6 weeks. If you would like to lock in the price, you can reserve your spot for a later date by making your 25% payment. That is the only way you’ll be able to lock in your price while you save up for the project. If you’re not in a place where you can reserve your spot, make sure that you’re subscribed to our list for updates on contests, deals, and more!

Anything is possible, however, our best work is done when we have the time to fully brainstorm and give you  a well thought out strategy. On the other end, we may also be booked at any given time. If you find yourself in a bind, it doesn’t hurt to ask us if we have any room in our schedule. Please keep in mind that a rush fee will be applied!

No, we can’t just create a logo for you. We’ve said goodbye to the days where you could simply have a logo and nothing else. To run a successful business, your audience is looking for more than pretty photos and a logo. They are in need of a consistent, authentic experience, and our package is built to help you identify and create just that. The logo and branding assets are just an extension of that. Today, your brand needs digital and printing assets that are cohesive and speak to the overall strategy that completes your business.

We implement the various tools available in the Adobe suite for logo design, especially Adobe Illustrator. We use Adobe XD to create mockups and prototypes. When it comes to template creation, we most likely use Canva, in order to make it user-friendly for you.

Nice to meet you!

You'll be meeting with...
