It is important to meet and agree on a plan, align ideas and connect the dots. Design & Development is a bit of a science, so it is vital to make sure everyone is on the same path and has the same goals! We will discuss what you type of website you need, what functions you require and specify objectives for each stage of the development process. You will then have a realistic indication of what is required so that we can achieve an end result on time and in line with set goals and ideas.
THE PLANNING PROCESS
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
After the planning meeting, we will decided on the look and feel of your website so that the design process can begin. You will need to compile everything required for your website, such as images, logos, pricing & product information and copy, as this is the foundation of your new fabulous website! If you are unsure as to what content you need, we can have a brainstorming session to help you form a clear idea of what is required. We will also decide and register your domain name if you have not done this already.
WORK IN PROGRESS
Once you have sent through all your content, the development process starts getting traction. With regular updates from me to you with test pages, the design and development process is a constant work in progress. Seeing actual test pages opens up visibility of where we are going and how your website will look, so changes can be made along the way.You can have as much or as little input as you like!
Once all of your content has been loaded, proofed and tested and we make sure you are 100% satisfied with your design, layout and navigation paths....we press GO! Going LIVE is an extremely exciting process and starting your web presence is a great sense of achievement! You will have 100% access to your own site (which a lot of other competitors do not offer) so you can then manage the website yourself with no further ongoing costs other than your hosting fee (low cost monthly fee of around $25 paid directly to the web hosting service).
