How we will go about doing it
Stage 1 Identifying the website requirements
We go through an exploratory session where we work with you in identifying the goals or the main purpose of your website. Nailing down the goals of the websites help in pinpointing the target profile and the calls to action. Following that we collect all the elements of your website. Elements such as, your personalized banner, the tag line that goes under the banner, images and of course the content for your website. All these elements go towards making your website exclusively yours and represent your business to the world.
Stage 2 Custom designing your website
We work with a blank WordPress theme and custom design your website based on your requirements and data from stage 1.
We DO NOT choose a preexisting standard template and fit your content to the template, tweaking colors and fonts. Instead we design your website from the ground up with your content and business goals in mind. You will get a website that showcases a certain amount of your personality but more importantly a website that your target profile can identify with.
We will design the pages and other add the functionality that we agree upon. These pages would generally be Home, About, Contact, Services etc. And it will include any other pages you have specified. Other features could include Shopping carts, Forums, Galleries, Events etc. A blog can also be included as part of your website but you can choose to have it enabled immediately or enable it yourself in the future.
The style of the layout and the pages gives your website a structure on which you can continue to add content as you get familiar with the use of your website.
Stage 3 Proof of website
We build you website on our development servers. The website will then be demoed for you on our servers. You will be able to approve your website based on the choices made in Stage 1 and Stage 2. This stage is important as you get to see what your website looks like and you can make changes to improve the site.
Stage 4 Go-live
After we get your approval at Stage 3, we will port the demo site to your new domain (website) and you will be on your way. Don’t worry we will provide you with documentation, so that you are self-sufficient and can make easy changes with confidence. And of course we are always here.
