Aeolidia's design schedule

Your small but fast growing business is perfectly poised to make a big splash in online retail, and that’s exactly where Aeolidia loves to meet you. We are highly-ranked official Shopify Experts, with a history of exceeding expectations. Our work is strategic, completely custom, and entirely goals-based. We like to get involved when we know our work can be transformative and cause exponential growth.

Ready? If you’re ready to move forward with your business, and to invest in some outside help, we would love to be your team.

How our schedule works

Aeolidia schedules projects in a block system. This means that we have set up discrete blocks throughout the year, and projects start at the same time, and launch by the same time. When you work with us, the block system will mean these things to you:

  1. You will know exactly when you will launch, and your launch date is guaranteed
  2. Your launch date will be strategic, based on your business’s important sales season

Each block is two months long, and you will be working with either a designer or a developer during a single block.

  • A logo takes one block
  • A website design takes one block
  • Developing that website takes one block

So each of our clients will need 1-3 blocks (2-6 months) to complete their project.

When should you get started?

We’d be glad to discuss that with you in detail over the phone, but a rough guideline is:

Heading to the National Stationery Show in May, or have other big spring plans? Beginning in January’s Block 1 will have you launched on April 27th, leaving May free to do your last minute prep.

Exhibiting at the NY NOW gift show in August, or have other big summer plans? Beginning a website project in Block 2 in March will have you launching on June 22, leaving you with a website ready to wow wholesale clients without spending your summer on it.

Have big plans for Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2018? You’ll want the website work to begin by Block 4, in June, to launch on October 19th for a successful holiday season.

For each of these schedules, remember you’ll need to start one block earlier if you’d also like us to work on your logo design.

We are glad to book you up to 12 months in advance. When we do that, you lock in our current prices, have accountability to meet your business goals, and will get our support in the months leading up to your project. Please contact us if you’re interested in telling us more about your retail goals and objectives so we can put together a custom proposal for you. If so, we have a wonderful questionnaire for you to fill out.
