We do most of our development in WordPress, as it is one of the most user-friendly Content Management Systems (CMS) out there.
We do however develop in other platforms if the project calls for it:
HTML // PHP // Drupal // ColdFusion
We do not believe in starting a project without first doing our homework. We start by identifying:
- Target audience
- Client requirements or needs
- Business goals and objectives
- Future business goals and objectives
- Website functionality/technology needs
- Conversion paths
- Establishing a timeline
This process establishes the groundwork to have a seamless transition from the strategy phase to the launch and life of your site. It also helps to ensure your website will be just what you need to meet your need and the needs of your clients.
Based off phase 1 we will collaborate with you about design the process:
- We will provide home page concepts for review
- You may choose one of these or opt to rework a design to achieve the final layout
- Once the homepage is approved, we will then provide inner page layouts that correspond to the look and feel of the home page
- You will approve the inner page layouts (or request changes)
- You will approve the final designs
- We will begin the development phase
Based off of the approved designs, our development team will begin building the website. During this phase our developers will build your website out into a functional website
Throughout development, testing is completed on various elements to ensure consistent results throughout the website.
Once development is completed, we then perform a thorough internal testing of the entire website to make sure it functions properly and ensure it meets all goals outlined by the client.
We will then review the website with you and make any final adjustments. Once you approve the site development, we will move on to phase 4.
Once the SEO optimization is complete, we will make your site live and open for public access!
Having a website that looks nice and functions properly is a great thing! However, it needs to work fast. We will optimize your website for speed and test it against Google speed tests to ensure that it meets the requirements.
