Whether you have a website or not, the overall design is the most critical part of building an online presence that will garnish the results your business is looking for. With our fine-tuned process, we ensure not only a usable web presence, but one that is beautiful and will drive leads, sales, and traffic like you’ve never seen before.
Custom Web Design
Our web design process has been streamlined for well over 12 years now. We have built thousands of sites, and we are ready to get started on yours right away! Our process includes:
- In-depth look of current website and design (if applicable) and content placement
- Competitor research
- If applicable, a wire-frame process to determine usability requirements
- Color/brand matching
- Call to action buttons and boxes research and placement
- Content area placement for SEO purposes
- Dynamic animation if applicable
- General placement of contact information in header and footer, and contact forms
Web Design Process
We gather all the required information from you that we will need. That will include inspirational sites/designs that you like, logo graphic file, any additional images you would like us to include, the main purpose of the site (email leads, phone calls, online purchasing, etc.), and define the general flow of the site.
Once we receive all of this information, we will begin the mockup phase. This usually takes between 3-5 business days. Once complete, you will receive a link to one or two mockup designs that you will be able to view. They will be flat files, and not functional websites. Think of it more as a proof of your new web design, just like you get with business cards or other print materials. Once you review the mockups, we make any changes you would like, and then revise where necessary. Once you approve the design we move into the development phase.
Website Development Process
Once you have approved your design mockup, we convert the multi-layered image file into working code that can be viewed by a web browser, like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc. Once converted into code and separate images, we then *typically* integrate that into a content management system. By doing so, this gives you the power to easily manage your own website text, images, pages, etc. Full control of the site, in a very intuitive, easy to use system that requires no special software. In fact, we will give you a 2 hour training on how to use the system at project completion. We want you to feel comfortable with your site, and we will work hard to not only show you how to use it, but also answer all the questions you have as you are in the drivers seat! The entire development process usually takes between 5-8 business days.
Once the site has come out of development, we do bug testing while we receive the content from you. The content would be the text, images, and all other items you would like to include throughout the site. To help expedite this process, we hope that you will begin working on the content right from the start while we are going through design/development phase. By not having the content prepared, it can significantly delay the completion date.
Launching The New Design
Upon completion, we will then launch your new website on any web host you prefer. We do offer web hosting packages, but if you have a host that you love, we will help you get the site launched there. Unlike many web design companies in Phoenix, we give you the site and all the source files to do what you want with. Many companies keep the files local to their system in a proprietary environment, forcing you to use them as your provider. Not us. You can take it anywhere, moreover, we will help you set it up at your desired location!
Once we launch the site, it will be very important for you to continue to work adding more content, pages, products, etc. We will always be here to support your ongoing needs after the launch. We want to make sure you love your site, and feel comfortable updating it. If you just need general questions answered or just a small need, there is typically not a charge. If you have more in-depth needs, we can help you at an hourly rate, prorated in half hour increments.
We look forward to getting started with you today on your next web project! Please give us a call at (480)630-9992 or use our contact form and we will get in touch with you right away!
