Web Design | St. Stephen | New Brunswick
STEP 1 – LET’S GET STARTED!
The first phase of the process is to meet and gather information from you to gain an understanding of your business, project goals and objectives. We find out what features you want and incorporate any existing ideas you have for your website content. We want to understand who you are, who your clients and customers are, and what we can create that will most effectively present your business and speak to your customers. With this information, we formulate a written proposal outlining the scope of the work, budget, and time lines.
STEP 2 – BASIC SET-UP
We set up your domain (if you do not already have one) and your hosting account. We install your Content Management System so that we are ready to add content to your site once the design is developed. We can discuss hosting options by either going through our services or finding one that suits your needs. Finding your best solution is our main goal.
STEP 3 – DEVELOP THE MAIN MENU
The menu is our blueprint for the kinds of information you need housed on the site. We set up a main menu for the front page, and additional menus used throughout the site on the inner pages as we organize the material. Your job during this phase is to supply the content and images you wish to use, or instruct us about what you would like in the way of content and imagery so that we can help you create it. We communicate with you through questionnaires, email, and in person during this phase to establish the basic structure of the site and the major design elements.
STEP 4 – DESIGN PHASE
We set up the basic framework of the site and begin working on the front page design while incorporating the features outlined in our communications with you. This helps in the creation of a concept that captures your brand, focus, goals and your design preferences. Once the design concept is completed, we submit it to you for your approval.
STEP 5 – WEBSITE CONSTRUCTION
All of the pages are constructed along with input of content, images, videos, add-ons and any features outlined in the proposal. We work closely with you as we go so that you can see the development of the inner pages, and guide us in making adjustments as we go. We won’t add anything without discussing it with you first, it’s your vision we just want to help bring it to life.
STEP 6 – REVIEW & LAUNCH
Once the website is complete, we do a final review with you to make sure there is nothing that needs to be changed or tweaked. We test the website on all of the main browsers including Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera to make sure everything works well. We test for the functionality of all features and make any final modifications. Then we go live!
STEP 7 – SUPPORT
Our ongoing support includes tutorials on using the Content Management System, security checks and updates, website backups, and web hosting. Not to mention updated on the fly real time Analytics about anything you may or may not have wanted to know.
