A website is the centrepiece of any online presence. Used as a key sales tool, information source and a vital stop on the buyer journey, we’re here to make sure you give the best impression possible.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
INITIAL MEET & RESEARCH.
The first step is to thoroughly understand your business, your goals and your customers via an initial meeting with as many stakeholders as possible.
We’ll also look at the competitive landscape to establish context and benchmarks for how your site should function and then improve on that. This stage will give us the foundation for moving forward with the perfect plan for your new responsive website.
BUILD & DEVELOPMENT.
We recommend WordPress as your content management system (CMS) as WordPress is the most popular open-source CMS in the world and has thousands of developers constantly improving it and contributing plugins to extend its functionality. Once the CMS is installed, set up and the admin panel is ready we can add in your chosen design.
This stage includes the bulk of the work, adding, editing and fine tuning pages, content and visuals until everything flows smoothly and seamlessly.
Once we’re armed with this information, we set to work creating a range of designs for you to choose from. These will look like simple skeletons of your website without the visual polish of the finished design but will give you the chance to explore and get a feel for each one.
We recommend having the majority of content ready for this stage as content can influence design but will also speed up the time to launch. Our in-house copywriter can help with this too.
TEST & LAUNCH.
We’ll test the website in a variety of browsers, including Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. We’ll also test the responsive design and run a ‘mobile-friendliness’ test on iPhone and Android devices, optimising mobile performance as standard. We’ll test the functionality of the site to ensure there are no errors or broken links.
Once you’ve tested the website and are happy with its functionality, content and the whole feel, we’ll launch and point your domain over to the new site!
NEED SOMETHING EXTRA?
Just like social media, we offer a range of helpful extras to make sure your website is perfect for you and your company.
