So you have an idea for a website but you are not sure what’s involved? There is a lot that needs to happen in order to manifest your idea online. A typical web project, regardless of its complexity, can usually be broken down into the following stages.
Note: It is possible to bypass the design phase if you are happy to use third party templates but you need to understand that there will still be modifications required to match your brand. It’s also less likely that you will end up with a website that best represents your unique business like you would when using a custom design.
This process occurs on our local development servers. Again we will always keep you in the loop during this stage, giving you ample opportunity to make refinements to the design/functionality if necessary.
If this is a new project we will create accounts with third parties (e.g. Google Analytics, Webmaster tools and MailChimp (or a similar service) if you plan on doing email marketing).
During this time, you should be preparing more content, product descriptions, images etc.
As much as we pride ourselves on our versatility there are a few things we can’t include as part of the process.
Hopefully that answers the majority of the questions you might have regarding the design and development process. If you are interested in getting started or have any other enquiries feel free to get in contact with us.
