OUR DESIGN PROCESS
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT DURING THE DESIGN PROCESS
HOW WE LIKE TO WORK
We have a robust process for delivering high quality websites at an affordable price. It’s really important that you understand this process before you start working with us and that you are comfortable with it. Please take a look below but if you would like to discuss the process in more detail get in touch and one of our team will be happy to guide you through it.
You must first register for our service. Please contact us so that we can go through the various bundles, have a quote, and answer any questions you might have. When you sign up, you must pay 50% up front, with the balance due when your site goes live. Debit cards, credit cards, and bank transfers are all accepted. Our hosting fee is charged from the moment you sign up.
We will ask you to complete a brief concept questionnaire after you sign up. This helps us to consider what you expect, and then we can study what other related businesses do. We still consider emerging design patterns, what we believe fits well in terms of marketing, and other strong external business websites. This stage is all about us knowing what you want but also bringing our design and marketing expertise to bear on your idea.
Your website designer will create a template for you to review and then consult with you until you are satisfied and ready to sign off on it. We have unrestricted revisions before sign-off, and it is critical that we do not begin construction before you are ready. Please keep in mind that once the design has been accepted and the project has progressed to the construction stage, any modifications to the design may incur an additional fee.
The website will be designed after the concept has been decided upon. This entails taking the agreed-upon specification and coding it to fit for both formats and screen sizes. Any website that we design is mobile-friendly (also known as mobile friendly). You will also need to supply the words for each page at this point, and if it is an ecommerce website, we will teach you how to add categories and items to the website.
We will make the website live as soon as it is done. If you already own a domain name, we will go through the various choices and suggest the right domain setup for your project. We would also notify Google that the website has been re-indexed and is on its way to your target audience, whether it is a new or existing domain.
Our work should not stop until the site is up. With several customers, this is when it all begins! We are here to help you as much or as little as you need, and if you need any alerts that you cannot or do not want to do through the CMS, we will do them for you at our hourly support rate. We also have SEO services, in which we attempt to improve the website’s ranking in Google for certain keywords. We are here to help you as your company expands and evolves.
