This is how we work our magic to bring your website to life:
We’ll conduct a discovery process where we will ask the right questions to uncover the reasons on why you really need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve. Once we know what your business goals are and a clear picture of what you want to achieve, we wrap everything up in a proposal document. This eliminates any potential misunderstandings and keeps the project on time and on budget.
One of the keys to project success is having a solid plan right from the start. Delays don’t do either of us any good, so you’ll need to supply all of your content and other required information before we begin working on your project. To make the process as easy as possible, we will also provide you resources and templates to help you draw out the information required.
Once we have all the information needed, we’ll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page very quickly about what it is we’re trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information. This will help us work out the different sections needed for your website and the overall layout of it from a high level perspective.
Instead of trying to tell you in words what we intend to build and hoping you understand the jargon, we’ll build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how the solution will work. It won’t be pretty as we don’t pay attention to design at this stage, but it will show how the site is expected to function.
This is where we use the approved prototype and bring your site to life. We add all the styling elements, such as your brand colours and graphics. We also implement any specialised applications or functionality to the site, things such as downloadable products, shopping carts, and member portals. This is where you get to really see what the final product looks like.
Once the site is finished, we test and review all the links and functionality to make sure everything works as intended. We also check that all the little things are sorted, such as spelling. We like to make sure there are no issues so your customers don’t find them later on.
Once everything is finished and signed off, we migrate your new site to your hosting provider and then it’s live for all your customers to see and use. We will also conduct a handover including a document containing all the relevant details about your site, as well as provide access to a range of training videos.
We also provide monthly website maintenance plans for our clients. These plans allow you to focus on your business and we’ll focus on keeping your site secure, updated and looking good. Our plans also include hosting with a premium Australian based hosting provider. We seek long-term relationships with our clients, and can also help your site evolve as your business grows.
