Cups Of Coffee
The Exploration phase of the web design and development process is all about information-gathering. This step is important for us to understand more about your business, industry, your target market, customers and the ultimate goal/aim for the website or application. It is important that you define this step as clearly as possible because a website’s focus has major impact on the whole project - this is the ‘foundation’ of the site.
Using the information gathered in the Exploration phase, it is time to put a plan together for your web site. During the planning phase, we will help you decide what technologies or features should be implemented. Elements such as what CMS (content management system) such as WordPress to incorporate, will any contact forms be needed, etc. are discussed when planning your web site.
Drawing from the information gathered up to this point, it’s time to determine the look and feel of your site. The target audience is one of the key factors taken into consideration in this phase. A site aimed at teenagers, for example, will look much different than one meant for a financial institution. As part of the design phase, it is also important to incorporate elements such as the company logo or colors to help strengthen the identity of your company on the web site. We will create a prototype design for your project which you will be able to view online in a testing environment. In this phase, communication is crucial to ensure that the final web site will match your needs and taste. It is important that you work closely with us, exchanging ideas, until you arrive at the final design for your web site.
The development stage is the point where the web site or application is created. At this time, we will take all of the individual elements from the prototype and use them to create the actual, functional site. This is typically done by first developing the home page, followed by a “shell" for the interior pages. The shell serves as a template for the content pages of your site, as it contains the main navigational structure for the web site. Once the shell has been created, we will take your content and distribute it throughout the site, in the appropriate areas. Elements such as the CMS like WordPress, interactive contact forms, or ecommerce shopping carts are implemented and made functional during this phase, as well.
Testing and Deployment
At this point, we attend to the final details and test your web site. Testing the complete functionality of forms or other scripts, as well as testing for last minute compatibility issues (viewing differences between different web browsers), ensuring that your web site is optimized to be viewed properly on any device. You will then be given the chance to test the product at the Beta stage and give us feedback. In the Beta stage of development the product is complete but likely to contains a number of known or unknown bugs. Once you give us final approval, it is time to deliver the site. Other final details include plugin installation (for WordPress or other CMS driven web sites and SEO (Search Engine Optimization). SEO is the optimization of your web site with elements such as title, description and keyword tags which help your web site achieve higher rankings in the search engines. See our FAQ page for more details on SEO.
The development of your web site is not necessarily over, though. One way to bring repeat visitors to your site is to offer new content or products on a regular basis. We will be more than happy to continue to work with you, to update the information on your web site or add features at a pre-determined retainer fee. If you prefer to be more hands on, and update your own content, you may use a CMS which comes standard with most of our products. A web site driven by a CMS gives you the ability to edit the content areas of the web site yourself. You are given access to a back-end administrative area, where you can use an online text editor (similar to a mini version of Microsoft Word). You’ll be able to edit existing content, or if you are feeling more adventurous, you can even add new pages and content yourself. The possibilities are endless!
