Our Process For Website Development

Our projects follow a proven process to ensure your website is launched on time and on budget.

Web Development Timeline

Step 1The sooner we start, the sooner we finish!

Discovery Meeting

We meet and review your current or new website needs, talk about your goals and timelines, and get a feel if we’re a good fit for each other.

We can meet in person at your office, ours, or via skype if distance/time is a factor.

Step 2

Research & Proposal

We spend some time researching your current site, your competitor’s sites, and design a new site proposal that will meet your goals, objectives and budget.

Step 3

Deposit & Project Commencement

We meet to review the proposal in detail, even demonstrating a conceptual site. If you wish to proceed, a 50% deposit is required.

Step 4Collaboration

Let’s Get To Work!

Your website is a joint project. While we work work diligently to engineer your solution, we need YOU to get involved and provide us with all of the content we need to make that happen. This step usually takes clients by surprise – you actually have alot of work to do, and finding the time can sometimes be challenging. But if we are to meet our deadlines and budget we need everything up front as changes along the way will certainly have an affect on them.

Step 5

First Review

Depending on the size and complexity of your project, our first review will take approximately 2-3 weeks. We meet to see how things are going. THIS is the point where you can bring up changes or suggestions, as afterwards everything is “locked in” and any major changes could seriously impact the project.

Step 6

Second Review

This is the last major review of the project-in-progress. At this point we are testing online forms or ensuring e-commerce is working, and we may involve you in these tests during this phase. We confirm the GO LIVE date.

Step 7

Final Review and GO LIVE

At our last meeting we review every page, every process, etc. Once you are satisfied, we set a “go live” date. Final payment is required before the site is released. Going live can be immediate or sometimes take 24-ish hours as the DNS changes propagate around the web.

Step 8

HONEYMOON: Training & Getting The Kinks Out

You have 2 weeks after the site goes live to put the site through its paces and make minor changes. We also schedule training for this time if you are going to be blogging or updating your own content. Training can be easily done via skype or at our office (our office is preferred so you have fewer distractions 😉 )

Step 9

Maintenance & Support

The Honeymoon is officially over. We offer support and maintenance with our annual retainer program. We monitor your website and execute monthly updates, ensure the site is properly backed up, and keep on top of any changes or subscriptions you may have. We also provide additional support and training via email, Monday – Friday, from 9-5.
