Development / Process

 

Step 1: Getting to know your business

Once we receive a web design enquiry from you, we will set up a consultation meeting with you either face to face or over the phone so that we can have a clear understanding about you, your business and how the website can help you achieve your desired goals and objectives.

Objectives are
  • Understanding the purpose of your website: Do you want to provide information or sell products and services?
  • Understanding your goals: What do you hope to accomplish by building your website?
  • Understanding your target audience/ customers: Which specific group of people do you want to reach with your website?
  • Understanding the content to be put on your website: What kind of information is your target audience going to be interested in

Step 2: Discovering your business opportunities

Using the information gathered from Step 1 we then run it through our Opportunity Filter Process to see what kind of opportunity is available for your business online and the best way to capture it.

During this step we conduct research to discover the kind of information your target audience is looking for and how it relates to the products or services that you have to offer.

We also do an analysis on your competitors' websites to learn where they are strong or weak, so that we can position your website to pull in more business than any of your competitors online.


Step 3: Setting up foundation for your online presence

Once we have an idea of the opportunity available for your business online, we go ahead and help you choose and register a good domain name that will best reflect your brand and bring you lots of visitors from the search engines.

We will then set up your web hosting account and email addresses of your choice which you can start using as we continue with the website.

objectives are
  • Choosing and registering the best domain name for your website.
  • Setting up your web hosting account and email addresses of your choice.
  • Creating the under construction page with your contact details.
  • Creating your profiles on the main social media sites to connect with your audience.

Step 4: Design & Developing the page contents

At this step we work with you to come up with a list of all the main topic areas and sub-topics of your website and agree on a content creation plan.

It is also at this stage where we will help you decide on the technologies to be implemented on your website as well as interactive elements such as forms, galleries, content management system, blog, downloadable documents.

This is normally a tricky part for most website owners who are suddenly required to come up with content for their website e.g. text, photos and videos. Don’t worry, we will warn you early and also help you get the job done.

 

Step 5: Testing & Uploading your website

We will test things like the complete functionality of forms, menus, links and also compatibility issues on different web browsers, ensuring that your web site is optimized to be viewed properly in the most recent browser versions. Once testing is complete and all issues and errors have been fixed it is time to launch your website onto the internet where it can be seen by the world. At this stage we will submit your website to all major search engines and directories relevant to your website & industry. This further improves the visibility of your new website.

Step 6: Handing Over access & web rights

After successfully launching your website it is now time to handover the "keys" to you. We will send you all the source files for your website in a CD and also send you the server logins. Should you want to move and work with another web developer in future, you will have everything you need with you If your website has a CMS (Content Management System), we will train you on how to manage and update your website and also prepare a detailed PDF guide that you can refer to in future.

 

Step 7: Growing and Web Maintenance
