So how does it all work? Well below we have given you a step by step guide to give you an idea of the web design process how it works and what is involved. Please read for more information, we can meet at my office or I can come to your workplace. Some of my customers I have never met, it has all been created via email & phone calls.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Give us a call. We’ll have a quick chat about your business, your requirements and what you need your website to do. At this stage, we may be able to give you a rough idea of likely costs and timescales for the project. Talking is free so there’s no obligation and we’re happy to give you any help and advice you may need.
We like to meet people over a coffee so a face-to-face meeting is as important to us as it is for a successful website project. At a consultation, either at our comfortable office or your place of business, we can get to know each other and talk about your company and the requirements for your website in more detail. Knowing you and your business is vital if your website is to succeed.
THE PLANNING STAGE
Here is where it all begins we will meet up have a coffee and a chat about what you are looking for and what you would like to get out of your website.
I will have my trusty note pad and pen so I can get the right information of what you want the website to do and how it looks. We will also discuss search engine optimisation (S.E.O) as this is a big factor in building sites.
THE DESIGN STAGE
Ok so I now have a good idea of your requirements for the website I will then take all the information and start putting some ideas together this period should take a day or two. The design will not be complete but we will have a better understanding of the finished product once I feel I have the right look for the website or project.
THE DEVELOPMENT STAGE
So we now have the design for your new website sorted and you are happy with how the website looks, I will then start to build your web site (this can take from 1 week to a few weeks) depending on how large the project in hand is. In this period I will register your company domain name and sort out hosting for your live site.
Throughout this process I will put your web site on a live test server so you will be able to see the progress of your web site.
THE LAUNCHING STAGE
Ok so your site is now built and ready to go, once your site goes live I will include it into all the major search engines such as Google (this can take up to a few weeks for the search engines to pick the site up).
I then give your site a final once over making sure there are no mistakes such as spelling mistakes (I am only human) ensuring all your meta data and description tags are all correct and relevant. Then that’s it you are the owner of a beautiful fully functional website.
