Website Creation Process
ONE STEP AT A TIME
TWO MINDS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
Our process starts with an idea. Luckily enough, by the time you approach an agency, you usually have a vague idea in your head. We work through the steps for refining this idea and bringing it into a workable concept. From there we can introduce features and systems to enhance your original concept.
Now that we have a working idea, we need to see how it looks! Our mock-up phase is designed to give you an idea of what the final product will look like. This way we can work out any visual and functional details before we implement any important systems. Mock-ups are quick and easy to change and as such we love the rapid development of this step.
STARTING SIMPLE, DREAMING BIG
So we have a functional mock-up and some great ideas, what is next? We need some content to fill your site with! This is really where the creative process of making the site your own steps in. Your rep will work with you to get a feeling of the content you can provide and what we can create. From there we make a checklist of everything we need and look at creating the site.
IT COMES ALIVE
This is the exciting part! Site creation is usually the longest step of our journey. It involves bringing all the mock-ups and content into a functional site. We build the site piece by piece from the hosting platform all the way to the contact form. A big part of site creation is testing, ensuring everything you asked for works as intended.
PERFECT, JUST LIKE THAT
Great! Now you get to see your site and give us some feedback. We love this part of the process because we get to see the huge smile on our customer’s faces! After the steps above, it is nice to finally have a product in your hands which you can play around with and decide exactly how you want to refine it. The important aspects of this step are to make any minor changes and also provide some personalised changes to make your life easier when using the site. Not everyone knows how to code, and we understand that!
SEO & Training
MAKING SOMETHING GREAT
That brings us to our final step! You have your functioning site and a whole world of possibilities for customers online. We will work with you to get personnel trained on using functions on the site such as accepting orders or managing contact forms. As you will be hosting with us, all maintenance tasks will be handled by our hosting team. Lastly, we optimise the site for public search engines. While SEO is a highly misunderstood topic in the online world, our team is happy to get you on your feet and help you rank higher in public searches!
That’s it! Your site is live and your customers are whipping out their wallets!
