Is your business looking for website design & development? A business website has evolved to be so much more than what it once was. It can now become an extension of your business as an interactive web/mobile digital marketing machine that is designed to increase sales as well as enhance your daily business operations. In essence its more of an essential business tool that no company should do without. However, among the myriad of website design companies available out there today how do you know who to choose for such an important decision? We will help you along with an overview of what we can bring to the table. As you read on you may realize that we do things a little different than other web “designers” out there, but we see this as a positive trait that sets us apart from the rest. We use a streamlined two phase approach all while adhering to important development standards.
The Entire Process
It all starts with an initial meeting of the minds. We will sit down with you and/or who ever you trust to contribute ideas or convey your ideas to us. At this meeting we will need to know the following.
|• What budget are you working with and what is your target launch date?|
|• How flexible or firm is your budget and target launch date?|
|• What does your company do? Do you offer products, services or both?|
|• What image does your company convey and are you happy with it?|
|• Do you already have a logo and/or photo images for the site?|
|• Do you have marketing materials and a standard corporate color scheme?|
|• Do you already have a domain name and website?|
|• If so, are you looking for a redesign or want to start fresh?|
|• What type of content do you want available on your site?|
|• What are you looking for in terms of features and functionality?|
The answers to these questions will help us determine what you are trying to accomplish and give us the necessary data to estimate the amount of time that will be needed to create your site and how much it will cost. We will make every effort to put together a quote within your budget. Along with the quote, you will be presented with a site development proposal. This proposal will attempt to meet as many of your requirements as possible within your budget. We will also consider your target launch date in the quote and proposal as well.
Should you accept the quote and proposal we will require a 50% deposit to begin work. The balance will be due upon completion. Once the deposit is made we will then get to work on the development phase of your site, laying down the foundation and building the structure. We will start to create the content areas in a basic temporary draft version of the site. Soon after we will require you to send us the copy (text information), logo and any images that each section of the site will contain. We will then add this information to the site and it will begin to take shape. We will also start building in the features and functionality during this phase. The next step is the design phase. This is where we get creative and work to achieve the look and feel you want for your website. Multi-platform compatibility will of course be thoroughly tested. All throughout these phases you will have opportunities to see samples of our progress and may even be called upon to test certain features before they are finalized. In the end, we will have a final meeting to review the finished product and train you and/or your staff on the basic features of the site.
If you are ready to get started, send us a Service Request and we will respond to set up the initial meeting.
