Web Design Process

From the initial sales meeting to the launch of your website and beyond.

Our process has proven time and again to create not only the best websites for our clients but the websites that they want- and at a much quicker pace. By using this streamlined system, we put both our time and our clients' time to the most efficient use so we can present a beautiful, fully-functioning website within weeks rather than months.

The Sales Meeting

1. Sales Meeting

We start with a sales meeting to talk about the scope of the project and figure out a cost estimate. As soon as the work order is signed, we'll move directly onto step two of the process.

The Initial Design Meeting

2. Initial Design Meeting

A Project Manager and a Designer meet with you to talk about the project timeline and design specifics. We take extensive notes to make sure we really hone in on what vision you have for your website.

Designing the Site

3. Designing the Site

Using the information you give us, we design the look and feel of your new website. Once we have a comprehensive proof with an effective design, we send it to you right away for feedback.

4. Getting Approval

Our top priority is making sure YOU like your new website.

Before we code anything we send you a proof to make sure the design is just what you are looking for. We'll update the design with any feedback and send you another proof until you approve your design completely.

5. Site Development

Once you approve the design, we start the actual coding of your website. We code each site on its own development site so you can see the site being build in real-time. Site development has 3 different areas that we can work on simultaneously to expedite the process.

Coding Homepage

Coding Homepage

We cut and code your homepage using the latest technologies and the cleanest code. We build contact forms, dropdown menus, and integrate the shopping cart system, if it's an e-commerce site.

Designing/Coding Inner Pages

Designing/Coding Inner Pages

We design an inner page and send you the proof for approval. Once the design is approved, we create and build each inner page, making sure whole site aesthetically harmonious and efficiently coded.

Adding Content

Adding Content

As soon as the inner pages are built, text content and photos can be added. We can take the content from your old site, add new content, or have our team of writers create new content for you.

Compatibility Testing

6. Compatibility Testing

We test our websites in each modern browser and computer platform to make sure it looks great for everyone. Links and contact forms are tested and we make any last changes to the content.

Website Launch

7. Website Launch

Once you give the go-ahead, we point your domain to the new site to make it live. Propagation depends on the servers (usually within the hour) and we keep watch to make sure the site launches flawlessly.

Website Maintenance

8. Website Maintenance

In order to keep customers coming back, websites require regular updates to homepage and inner page content. We can help with maintaining your website's content to keep it fresh and interesting.

Search Engine Optimization

Another key element of website maintenance is pressing forward in the ever-constant battle of shepherding more traffic to your site.

SEO is one of the most important aspects of your website. We also offer SEO services to help your website rise in search engine rankings which can lead to an increase in revenue as more people visit your site.
