Our initial introduction, whether via email, over the phone or a face to face meet. This is where we set out to understand your “business” requirements, define the goals, purpose and identity of the website, decide on content layout and formats i.e. dynamic or static and most importantly discuss options for attracting visitors to the site after the deploy.
Satisfied with the knowledge of what is required, a draft proposal for the project will be created and submitted outlining the scope of the work so that we both have a clear understanding of the project expectations, pricing, time frames and deliverable’s.
This step means the proposal has been accepted and the design and development process begins. The design and development stage is where we will start creating the work as detailed in the scoping exercise. We work very closely with you gathering the information for the site content, tweaking layout designs, changing the colours where required, characterise and gather information about the targeted audience.
This step the site is tested by trying to use the site as if we were the targeted audience. Any required tweaks and changes are made and further testing is done until satisfied that the site is ready for deployment or the “go live” publishing.
This step of the project process means that the website design and development, testing and acceptance is complete. At this stage the completed mock up website will be transferred to the live website hosting either provided by us or by a hosting company of your own choosing. Transfer complete, a series of tests would need to be carried out to ensure a successful transfer.
With your website published we provide “go live” support and maintenance which will include minor changes and site backups.
The “go live” support and maintenance will last for the selected length of time which is decided during the scope step to suit the project. After the “go live” period if support contract option is chosen it will be activated.
