The first stage of your website design process begins with a small introductory consultation. This involves a simple telephone call and follow up email to discuss important factors that concern your brand such as your logo, color scheme, and any current marketing initiatives you have. We will use this time to review your design preferences and become familiar with your target markets. This knowledge ensures that your website will have the functionality that it needs to effectively communicate your brand’s message before we even begin. Discovery saves valuable time and allows us to create better designs for our clients.
After careful consideration of everything that we discussed, we build the design based on your needs and the most current design trends that exist. We will create a responsive, interactive and user friendly design plan that visually demonstrate how the homepage, interior pages and blog layout will be structured. This includes navigation menus, social media icons, logo placement, calls-to-action, and videos. It is during this period that we work closely with your company in order to review the overall design concept, select a design and make any necessary or requested changes. When the final layout is approved, we will begin building the website.
Designing your website includes taking into consideration the importance of your brand’s web marketing and this includes determining what is the best way to introduce or enhance any content, media and graphics that you have. We test all of the functionality that we create such as forms, photo galleries and social media to ensure they are ready to use and work properly. Because we build your website using the WordPress platform, we guarantee it is 100% responsive. Responsive means that it displays content correctly on all devices, screen resolutions and browsers. It also means that your website is built on one of the most user friendly, interactive, scalable and manageable content systems that exist today. Once the design is fully developed, we hand the keys over to you.
Deployment of your website happens in two phases. First, your website will be launched and viewable to the public, but before it is time to take your website completely live, we review it with you and make any final changes or adjustments. Once everything has been approved, tested and running smoothly it is then pushed live. At this time, we will train your internal staff (if needed) on how to make necessary changes related to text, content, images and other specific items. Secondly, we will run one final quality assurance test and provide ongoing support for any issues that your staff are unable to handle themselves. There could be a small fee charged for any fixes and changes to the website once it has been deployed. If you want us to maintain your website, content, branding and marketing after its initial design, we can do that too. View our services tab for more details.
