So now you have made the decision to get your business a new website, what are your next steps? The quickest way to get the ball rolling is to complete this online form. The form will allow us to get to know your business needs before we have our first conversation! This will also give us enough time to prepare a strategy to illustrate what we can offer your business. Following the initial phone conversation, we will email through a detailed proposal. If you are happy with this, just give us the green light and we will get started on your new website!
2 - PLAN
At this point we have gathered the information we need as to why your business needs a website and what functionality you wish to have. We are now able to create a sitemap that will give you a visual as to how your basic site will look. This is an integral part of the process and your feedback and cooperation is needed.
We will present a number of options for different packages that will work for your website and budget and in turn we will then be able to figure out your hosting options.
3 - CONTENT & DESIGN
This is the point where you will send me through all your content, copy, images, videos, links, social media links and logo. I have a FREE content planner to assist you! As soon as I receive this information the magic starts to happens. Your ideas start taking shape and we will create a design that you and your customers will love! We will present you with different design options and will be in contact with you regularly to get your feedback and opinion.
4 - TEST, APPROVE & LAUNCH
The site testing is the last and most crucial step of the design process. We demo the website to ensure everything is doing what it is supposed to. Our test includes going through the entire website, checking that links are all correct including email and social media, we do a site spell check and ensure the layout is consistent throughout the site. We connect your domain and optimise your website for search engines.
Once we ensure the website is functioning as it should, we will get your site up, running, and ready to reach and engage customers!
