Our first step in initiating a potential project with you will be to thoroughly understand your business, your expectations, your customers and their expectations and behaviors. Then, most importantly, how your website factors into all of that. You begin this process now with our new project survey.
Here we present you a comprehensive scope of work that clearly defines the purpose of your website and the specific functionality we intend to implement. We will also give you a timeline of the project as well as an itemized quotation.
The wireframe is a simple sketch outlining the general layout of the homepage. We’ll schedule a Zoom call to walk you through our proposed wireframe and answer any questions or make necessary changes. The wireframe is completed within the first week of your Project Cycle, once the scope of work has been accepted.
Using our findings and the wireframe as a general guide, we design a homepage mockup for your initial review. Once the general styling of the homepage is approved, we build out all of your remaining page templates. Typically, this phase takes one to three weeks but can take more depending on the project requirements and the time it takes your team to provide responses.
Once you are completely satisfied with your page mockups, we ask for an official approval of the general layout, spacing, styling, colors, and videos/photography. Imagery and text can be changed beyond this point, but it’s important to keep the word counts consistent in most areas to prevent design tweaks.
Our developers take the mockups that were approved in the design phase and bring them to life according to the specs outlined in the scope of work. They create a fully an optimized version of each of your page templates tht will look good on all devices, i.e. desktop, tablet and mobile phone.
We test the website in a variety of browsers. We test the functionality of the website to ensure there are no errors or broken links and then hand it over to you for your review on our dev server. After all the issues you find have been addressed it's time for the final approval on the entire project.
Every website needs a home, where the light’s always on, and visitors are always welcome. We can recommend the right hosting company, or if you prefer a specific provider, we can work with them. Wherever you want to host, we’ll make it happen. Unless it's with Hostgator, GoDaddy, or BlueHost.
This is where we coordinate together to schedule the date of the website launch. We will then run an additional QA round just to make sure everything is functioning on your server.
Every website must be hosted on a public server and requires monthly security/maintenance measures to be taken in order to comply with best practices. We offer a competitively priced plan that addresses all of these needs. You can also ask someone else to manage these updates, or do it yourself.
