I will do my best to understand your needs and advise you as to the most appropriate strategy. This will ensure you send out the right messages whether you want to create or enhance your online presence..
The first step in designing a successful web site is to gather information. Many things need to be taken into consideration in order to create the correct look and design for your website.
This first step is actually the most important one, as it involves a solid understanding of the company it is being created for. It involves a good understanding of you – what your business goals and dreams are, and how the web can be utilized to help you achieve those goals.
Using the information gathered from the needs analysis, it is time to put together a plan for your project. This is the point where a site map is developed.
During the planning phase, I’ll help you decide what technologies should be implemented. Elements such as interactive forms, eCommerce, flash, etc. are discussed when planning your web site.
After the plan has been developed I will create Photoshop compositions of your website, this will enable you to preview your website and thus discuss in depth what needs to be changed or implemented.
Upon approval of Photoshop compositions the development stage starts. At this stage I will take all graphic elements from the compositions and transform what was a design into a fully functional website. This will include any features you many want ie ( blog integration, CMS, eCommerce, slideshows ).
This entire time, I will continue to make your in-progress web site available to you for viewing, so that you can suggest any additional changes or corrections you would like to have done.
Also I want to ensure that every project is approached with the most current web standards for maximizing functionality, as well as accessibility for as large an audience as possible.
At this point, I will attend to the final details and test your web site. Once all that is done, complete tests will be carried out on functionality as well as well as compatability issues.
Once final approval is given I will upload your website to your choosen web server marking its official launch!
The development of your website complete, fine tuning is essential. Included in every website is 1 month’s free Bronze Maintenance – This is done in case anything needs changing or updating. Also having close monitoring the first month will ensure everything is working at its best.
It is advisable to have ongoing professional maintenance. There may well be future developments or issues that need attention . See my Maintenance Packages.
Every website needs traffic if it is to be profitable and effective. SEO ( search engine optimization ) is an essential key. For more information see my SEO Services
