The quality of a website is determined by its development process. A well-planned process leads to an effective website, while a rushed or haphazard approach leads to a poorly designed website. Invest in a comprehensive web design process to create a successful website that accurately represents your business and meets the needs of your audience.
1. Initial Conversation and Consultation
Our first step in the web design process is to have a candid conversation about your needs and goals. This can be done through a simple call or in-person meeting to know your business and to answer any questions you may have.
During this initial consultation, we can also review different styles of websites, such as our small business website packages, premium websites that attract customers, and how they will integrate into your business. Plus any additional services that you may require like logo design, or help with content writing.
2. Website Design Brief
Complete our simple website design briefing form that covers the essential details needed to do our job effectively. The website brief takes about 20-25 minutes to complete. We have a help section to help you get the most out of it or we can arrange to walk through it together.
3. Project Activation
Once you are ready to move forward with your project, we require an initial payment of 50% to begin work.
4. Website Planning
In the next stage of the web design process, we will schedule a website planning meeting to discuss the design, structure, and content of your website. During this meeting, we will work with you to plan the layout, colors, imagery, fonts, structure, navigation, and functionality of your site.
5. Final Content Submission
After the website planning meeting, you will provide us with the final approved content for your website, including branding, imagery, website copy, and product information. This will allow us to complete the development of your website and ensure that it accurately reflects your business and goals.
Crafting the Digital Vision
1. Website Design and Development
After the final content has been submitted, we will begin the process of designing and developing your website.
2. Website Review
Once the development of your website is complete, we will provide you with a private link to preview and review the new site. This will allow you to see how the site looks and functions before it is launched. You can provide feedback and request any necessary revisions during this review process.
Revise & Perfect Your Website
1. Feedback Submission
Once you have reviewed the website, you will need to provide consolidated feedback on the site.
Your website package includes one round of changes and one final round of minor text amendments to ensure that the process is efficient and the site can be launched as soon as possible.
2. Revisions and Finalization
We will review your feedback and make any necessary revisions to the website. Once we have completed your revisions, we will again give you access to the final revised website for your sign-off.
3. Website Approval
Before the website can be launched, we require final approval from you and the remaining 50% payment.
Once these steps have been completed, we will launch the website and make it live for the public to access.
Launching Your Website to the World
1. Website Launch
Once the website has been approved, we will perform the final steps required to launch your website.
2. Training & Education
After the website has been launched, we will provide you with a private training session to help you feel confident in editing your new website. This training can be conducted via video call or in person.
3. Ongoing Hosting, Maintenance, and Support
Once your website is live, it will be hosted and maintained by us, with regular security scans and updates keeping your website running smoothly and free from errors. We also offer a monthly content update service to help keep your content up-to-date.
