THE WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
We will work together to create a sitemap that ensures we’ve considered all the key pages in the site, showing their relationship to each other and defining how the sites overall navigation should be structured.
Once the architecture of the site has been defined, the next step is to create a visual style. The overall visual style will be determined by your input, our creative suggestions, and the visual brand of your organization; the goal being to connect the Web with all other forms of your communications. Your brand plays an important role in this part of the process, as we will want to visually convey key brand perceptual ideas within the design.
Once designs are approved, it’s time to build out the design and create a website. At this stage we will work together to provide new content and refine old content, provide videos, photos, and other media that will appear on the site. Once we have a working beta site on our production server, you will be provided a link to it for review.
Site Testing & Training
Testing of the site is critical, as some items may need to be addressed before the site goes live. At this stage the site will also be reviewed on multiple browsers (Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer) and multiple devices (laptops, tablets, and mobile) to make sure no breaks occur.
Training will be scheduled for the website admin. At training you will learn how to update and maintain your website content.
The big day. Once the site has been reviewed and approved by the project stakeholders, it will be scheduled to launch. Once launched, you will be notified and provided all the information regarding your website, the admin, hosting, etc.
