How We Do It
7 steps to a fabulous new website
After almost 20 years in business and hundreds of websites, we've built up a solid process that merges our web skills with your expertise.
It runs something like this:
Stage 1 - Meet
Once you've given us the go-ahead, we'll pull together a project team - the people who'll be designing and building, and liaising with you as we go.
We'll all get together with you and yours more than once if required, to chew over the brief and explore the options.
It's kind of 'blue sky', but with a fixed objective.
Stage 2 - Document
We'll develop a site plan and project docs that show our agreed direction. Then we'll take your feedback, and - over a few drafts - carve out the final solution.
Project scope and plan confirmed.
Stage 3 - The Foundations
Our design team turns on the magic, to produce a first set of visuals - while developers get to work, mapping out your CMS modules and how we’ll integrate with third parties if needed.
Both teams will come to you for input, with ideas flowing both ways. By the end, your creative and technical foundations are in place.
Stage 4 - The Demo
The designers put together a full HTML site, with samples of all your page styles - giving you a clickable demo.
Meanwhile, the developers get building, creating the admin tools and database systems that will drive your website. Techy stuff.
Stage 5 - The Tie-in
The designers step aside, as the dev team creates a fully functional version of the demo site - complete with CMS, product modules and pulling in third party data if that’s in the spec.
That's technical integration.
Stage 6 - The Handover
By now, you'll have your content ready - so we'll train you to use the CMS so you can update freely.
We’ll work with you to help you get the site ready for launch - then pull the switch. And your site is live!
Stage 7 - The Next Steps
Once the site goes live, we're into Phase 2: getting the most from your investment.
That could mean driving in traffic, or maximising conversions, or improving the user experience... it all comes down to your objectives and the site's initial performance. This, coupled with our easy to talk to support team means that you’ll have all you need to keep your solution fresh and meeting objectives.
And that's how we do what we do!
It's a tried and tested process that's built on collaboration.
