DefineThe first step is to define the website goals. Will it be an informational site, e-commerce site or a content management site (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla)? Who are you marketing to? How many pages and what information do you want to include? What are your design and artistic tastes? We gather this information face to face and make sure we go over the points below:
- Your Company Objective
- Navigational Structure
- Content and Page Structure
- Is User Editability Needed
- Web Design Costs and Payment
- Completion Schedule
DesignThe next step is to design a rough draft website that you can access and see to help us tweak to your standards. The HTML layout, navigation structure, and functionality are created. The graphics can also be tweaked at this stage to the clients preferences. Once the rough draft of the front page is approved we movve to the next step.
DevelopAfter the customized website front page has been approved, the additional pages are developed. Graphics are web optimized for quick loading and content is added. The pages are tested on a wide variety of web browsers and environments to ensure functionality, usability and quality. HTML programming is validated to further ensure that pages render optimally in all browsers.
DeployWhen the website is complete and all pages have been approved, the website is launched on our servers and the site goes "live". Some backend features can only be created after launching. These include the a wordpress blog, any input forms on the site and other URL specific issues. The entire site is again tested to ensure usability and functionality.
ManageComprehensive Website Maintenance Agreements may be chosen when the website is complete. Keeping your website fresh with current information is an absolute necessity to portray a professional image to your Internet audience. Ensuring that your site is current and relevant is as important as initially creating the site.
A marketing plan to promote the website should be devised. We will make Internet marketing recommendations based on the client's objectives and advertising budgets.
