We think it goes without saying that starting with a strong understanding of your requirements will result in the best possible design. This is why we will be asking you lots of questions to get the best understanding of your desired end result.
We want to find out who your target audience is, what your general ethos is, and how you want your website to function. The more information we can get from you, the better chance we have of getting a full understanding of what you want to get out your website.
At this point we begin to create the look and layout of your website. By this point we should have a good understanding of the message you want the site to give out. We will design choosing colours, fonts and a layout that communicates with your target audience, using any logos, images, or colour schemes that you may or may not have provided.
Our aim here is to have a design that will seamlessly compliment your existing business image or create an image for your new business to build from.
Next we take the design we have made and turn it into a functional website. This is where we add in all the features that make your site interactive and useable.
Features you have chosen to put into your website, news entry systems, user logins, admin control panels, image uploading, contact forms, online payment systems... this is where we put in all the code to that makes the website come to life. We then spend hours on end testing to make sure every bug is ironed out before the site goes online.
The better that search engines can understand a website the higher up in search results it is likely to be.
We make sure that the way we code makes our websites easy for search engines to understand. This, paired with well structured code that validates in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Standards (along with a many other SEO techniques), results in your website having a better chance to be top of the pile.
Now that the site is live we can see your site grow using tools to measure its performance.
We like to use Google Analytics to find out how a site is performing. We put Analytics into every site we produce. This means that it’s easy for you to track how well your website is doing.
It is our belief that organic growth is the best way for a website to thrive during its life and hope that our relationship can continue throughout it.
