To successfully create an engaging and functional website for your business or organization, we will work with you through the following web design and development process.
Determine website purpose
We begin by listening to your thoughts, ideas and expectations about creating a website for your business or organization. It is important that we understand your website goals so that we can design a site based on your unique expectations.
Generate project proposal
Everyone wants to know "what will this cost and how long will it take?" Once we understand your website needs, we will put together a proposal that includes a description of the web services we will provide along with a cost and time estimate for the project. We will be up front and honest with you about what we can deliver. The cost is generally made up of: a one-time cost for development plus annual costs for domain name, web hosting and ongoing maintenance. Because each website is unique, the costs and time involved will vary with each project.
Once the decision has been made to move forward, we will create a design prototype. We will post the prototype on a development site for you to review. It is important to get your feedback early in the process so that we can make sure what we are developing is in line with what you have in mind.
This is where it all comes together. We take the feedback from the prototype review, add your unique content, and incorporate into a website with easy to use navigation. The content (words and pictures) should come from you to properly describe your business or organization. If you already have a marketing scheme we will incorporate your logo and color scheme to be consistent. We are all about the small details. We test against different browsers, proof the content for consistency and correctness, and test all navigation including the submission of on-line forms and internal or external links. We will develop your website with SEO in mind to promote the success of your business. Prior to launching your website, we will have you review it one more time. We want to make sure we have met or exceeded your expectations.
This is the point your website "Goes Live" under the unique domain name selected for your business or organization. Website training can be provided based on what you feel is needed. We will work with you regarding ongoing maintenance of your website's content (this can be done by us or by you). Should a support issue arise regarding your website, we are available to address it.
