Consultation & Fact Find
You've contacted us either by phone, email or through our contact forms. Next we find out about your business - what you do, how and what your aims and goals are today and tomorrow.
We'll recommend a course of action and if you accept you'll need to accept the quote to proceed. At this stage payment as arranged will be required for work to start (normally 50% up-front and 50% upon completion for bespoke projects).
You'll need to let us know more about your ideas, target customers / visitors, existing branding information (e.g. logos, colour schemes ...) and a more detailed description of your business processes, but don't worry, we'll guide you through this.
Draft Design & Development
With the course of action agreed, and our fact-find completed, we can get to work properly. An intial 1st draft of your main page will be created. We'll talk and you'll be able to see it online through a staging site. Next is an iterative procees of: feedback, modify and repeat!
When the general design of your site is complete, we'll replace the holding text and images with either ones you have authorised us to source and / or content you have written, produced or obtained.
For bespoke web applications we'll start working on the secure login areas, coding and testing the required functionality.
Review, Test-Drive, Complete
At this stage, design, development (coding) and content will have been completed. This is when you can really feel and use the website or web application fully and ask for any final round of modifications (not on the general theme but layout, content and functionality). We'll help by doing an SEO review of your new site to help you - with a list of 'white-hat' techniques you should work on if you want to boost your rankings with search engines such as Google and Bing.
When you're happy, we're happy! Watch your site go 'live'. We'll have already registered your chosen domain (subject to avilability), updated your domain's DNS records and set-up or helped set-up your email accounts using your domain as well as installed an SSL certificate if included.
Congratulations on your new website!
