Our goal is to to understand your vision and business goals & acquire the information that we need to build an awesome website for you, without taking too much of your focus away from your regular business obligations.
There are a number of touch points throughout the process. Each meeting whether in person, on the phone or through email is focused & with a clear objective.
This is where we get to know your business and its goals. We look to understand your expectations for your site. How would you like to see your site serve your business? Setting specific goals for your website will help with all aspects of the website build. We will talk about you and the audience you serve.
Typically, the discovery process consists of a client questionnaire form, a meeting or phone calls, and emails. If you have any resources already prepared (logo, promotional material, etc) you would provide them at this point.
We will also do additional market research to better understand your marketplace and where you fit in.
A Domain Name and Hosting will be needed for an online presence. If this is something that you do not have we can help procure them.
After we’ve developed a solid understanding of your business, we’ll translate that into a set of guidelines for the website layout and functionality.
Using those guidelines, a layout of the website will be created. We will look at the flow of the pages, the information and images that will inform your visitors about who you are and why they should engage with your business.
Based on your input we will tweak and revise this framework as needed to get it to a point where we think that it will guide your visitors through the website in a way that will aid them in make the best decision for them to seek out your services.
Branding, colors, storyline, mood and the overall feeling of the site that you want your visitors to sense will also be discussed.
Images and written content that you are providing would be passed to me at this time.
During this stage we will get to work putting everything, that we discussed and agreed on thus far together to build your business website.
We customize a WordPress template, load the content (text and images), design all the inner pages and tailor the parts and parcels to bring together your new website.
Once it is together, we will have another opportunity to go through the site to ensure that it meets your expectations.
Content Adding / Migration (Optional)
By the end of the Development phase, the website will be fully functional. This is a time to re-assess the content (text and images).
Does it get your message across? What else might be needed?
Testing / Final Checklist
We’ll run your site through a 100+ point checklist to make sure everything works as it should.
We’ll verify things like cross browser compatibility, mobile display, form functionality, and more.
We take pride in our work and want to make a good impression on your visitors!
Launch (Going Live)
This is the moment we have all been looking forward to, when all our hard work is launched for the world to see.
The site can be moved from our development server to the hosting company of your choice, or we can host the site for you.
Full payment of any services rendered is required prior to launch.
