Of course you want to understand how we will design and develop your website. Over a short period of time, we complete these 7 steps to deliver your website on-time and on-budget. Working together with our customers we help them to provide us the information needed to complete their website project quickly and easily.
First steps are all about collecting the information we need to best understand the purpose of your website, your goals and who your target audience is. Our key task is to get a clear understanding of what you want from your website. Our team will send you a link to connect with the online webhedz Intake Platform. You will be provided a form to fill out that will help us establish a foundation for our work together. Next, we will arrange a call or to meet in person for our Discovery session.
When we finish our Discovery with you, and based on the information we collect we will propose what your Sitemap should consist of. The sitemap is exactly what it sounds like – It’s a map that describes the relationship between the main areas of your website and its related pages. After you approve your sitemap we will begin developing the design of your new website.
This is where your website takes shape. From the information we have gathered, all the visual content, such as images, photos and video will be collected at this step. We begin to design the look and feel of your website choosing the right colour palette, visualizing content and layout based on the defined website information wireframe.
Some customers write their own content. Others prefer us to do it. Either way at this step we begin collecting the content or writing it for you. When we write the content our writers will craft the essence you’d like to communicate to the audiences of your website. They create content that will engage your audience as well as the search engines to support search engine optimization or SEO. Once completed and approved we will migrate the content to your new website.
This is where we start to create the functioning website itself. All the design developed is now used to guide our developers in building the website code to deliver a seamless experience for your audiences. We will create your site using a Content Management System (CMS) called WordPress. It is known as an “Open Source” platform because it is supported by a world-wide group of developers and is constantly updated, new applications are added on a daily basis. It is the most trusted and popular web platform in the world.
We provide a full hosting solution that includes strong, hardened WordPress hosting. Included in our hosting is our semi-annual maintenance update ensuring your website remains up-to-date to keep it working smoothly and safely.
PLUS, we will report on your Google Analytics every quarter to help you understand what is happening to your web traffic.
