We strive to take the guess-work out of the development process. Here’s what you can expect, and what you’ll need to think about before starting a project.
Evaluate what your goals are for your website when you launch. Do you just need a professional looking site at a low price? Starter is your package. Do you need custom design work and features such as image/text animations, custom form creation and web lead capture? Go pro. Do you want an all-inclusive package that includes features such as logo creation, social media setup and online marketing campaign preparation? Advanced is your package.
2. Complete Design Brief
This is the stage where we’ll provide you with a comprehensive form designed to help you make important decisions that will shape everything from color selection to the tone of written content. It’s also helpful to identify a few websites that you like the look and feel of so we can get a good idea of your target style. Once that’s complete we can sketch up an idea of how your site will be laid out in terms of page count, content placement and navigation.
3. CONTENT CREATION
This is the biggest factor that can stall web projects. Many companies assume it’s no big deal to write the content for their entire site. Unless you’ve got a knack for creative writing, we strongly recommend selecting our written content creation add-on package. You’ll also need to decide if you’re ok with the included stock photography option or if it’s necessary to add a photography package. A professional look will be achieved either way, but some clients require specialized images for elements such as staff or facility photos.
4. Design & Build
This is the hurry up and wait phase. Everything from the psychology of color to how page flow will convert visitors is addressed during this process. Anyone can go throw a decent looking site together on one of the many DIY builders out there. We specialize in creating a site that not only looks great but achieves your online objectives. Your website is the foundation of your online presence, so it’s important that we take the time to get it right.
You will be given access to the development site once it’s ready for your review. This is a staging area where you can view the site exactly as it will appear live and make requests for revisions. Your package will include at least 1 revision session, but be sure to select a package that suits the needs of your project in terms of how many revision session you believe you’ll need (in other words, how picky are you?). See our contract for more information on our revision sessions and what’s included.
Your site will be moved from the staging/development area to your production web host and will be publicly available at the domain name of your choosing. Whether you’re replacing an old site or setting up something new, we will advise you on the best course of action to take. Once completed, it’s time to start thinking about next steps in your marketing strategy, and setting up any other components of your online presence such as social media accounts and company email.
We work hard to keep up with current trends in design and technology. So you’re getting a website that looks great, but will stay up-to-date and relevant longer.
