Establish your needs
Before work on your project is begun, we conduct a needs analysis with your business team to define your business plan and website needs. From this analysis, we submit to you a business proposal, outlining the project schedule, complete with timelines and milestones, along with the project contract. Once the proposal is accepted and the contract is signed, we move onto stage 2.
We meet personally with your business and IT teams to discuss the creative and technical direction of the project. We explore the specific goals of your website, from software and multimedia requirements to design aspects such as color schemes and site architecture to online marketing strategies. This initial strategy session helps set the tone for the entire project.
Create a concept
Using the materials and responses gathered from your team during stage 2, we create and submit a unique, full page layout to display a visual concept of the future website. We encourage feedback from you (this is your site after all!), and make any changes as requested.
Build your website
Once you have accepted and approved the final layout concept, we begin building the site. We develop and apply the navigation architecture, graphics, text materials, multimedia applications and software. We test the entire website to ensure all the code conforms to web standards and performs properly in all browsers. We encourage you to also test the site, and we welcome all feedback.
Marketing and support
Once the site has been tested to your satisfaction, we submit the site to search engines and create any necessary online marketing strategies. We teach you how to manage your site through a content management system and how to review your statistics software. Or if you would prefer, we establish an ongoing relationship as your webmaster.
