Our Web Design Process
A quick guide to the 6 stages we use to bring your website to life
STEP1: This first step is the most important one and it involves you giving us a solid understanding about you, your business and what your business goals are.
Proposal & Estimate
STEP2: Once we have read through your brief we’ll give you a call to check we have all the details and then send you our proposal and estimate for your project.
Sitemap & Prototype
STEP 3: Once we have all the information we need, we will create a visual sitemap to illustrate your pages. Once agreed, we will prepare a basic prototype which you can interact with in your browser.
Design & Development
STEP 4: The design and development stage is very exciting but only when we’re totally satisfied your new website’s design answers all your goals and criteria, will we send you a link to see what we’ve been up to.
Testing & Sign-Off
STEP 5: Now is the time to thoroughly check your new website and let us know if any fine-tuning is required. Once the final tweaks have been made and signed off, we will move your website to your server.
STEP 6: Some clients prefer a ‘soft’ launch, meaning customers and visitors discover the new site gently. Others want to tell the world straight away. We’re happy to advise you which is best. Well done, you’ve done it.
Maintenance & Momentum
You’ve spent months of your life dedicated to this wonderful new website. You’ve dreamt about it, planned for it and invested a serious amount of time into it.
What should you do now?
Well, it’s time to reap the rewards but to do that you need to keep pushing forward. It’s not time to sit back and relax.
Once your site is up and running, you’ll want to keep building and developing a rapport with your audience. We’re can help with this, so don’t forget to get in touch if you need us.
The code used to run your WordPress website is constantly being updated and must be maintained.
We will show you how to do this just after we launch your website but we also understand it can be rather time consuming. If this is the case, we encourage you to let us do it for you via one of our Client Support Plans.
Client Support Plans are here to make your life easier, especially when it makes more sense for you to run your business than update your website!
