Often times clients say they have put off creating or updating their website presence because it seems overwhelming and expensive. Most people who come to us have no idea what to expect from the website design process. I would like to alleviate those fears by sharing an infographic I have created.
The website design process is broken into six phases.
If you are working with a company or developer who follows these practices, congratulations! You are in good hands. Contact us for a free evaluation.
The discovery phase is all about a getting to know you and your business. Who are customers? What is your goal? How will we define success? What are the best communication strategies for you?
Here we will establish a timeline, outline a visual sitemap of your website, present wireframe page layouts and plan a deliverable strategy for your website content and images.
Based on your sitemap and wireframe feedback, we present a series of design comps for you. This gives you a sense of the overall look and feel of your website pre-development.
Once you have approved your design, we begin our development phase. This is the unique build or web development of your brand new site design.
After running testing and optimization through various browsers and devices, we set up your proper website hosting options. Now your site is launched, ready to share with the world!
Much like a car or a home, a long-term plan to maintain the health of your website is essential. Leave it to the professionals to provide security updates, backups, and content management.
