Here at Designer Websites, we have a very user friendly approach, ensuring you don’t have to deal with any unnecessary web jargon. We take a few easy steps to ensure your project runs smoothly, on time and within budget!
1. Initial contact with Designer Websites
Upon your initial contact with us, we have a chat about your business, your position in the industry and why you would like a website.
2. Initial briefing
We then commence a website briefing to establish exactly what your website will comprise of. Following this, we provide you with an important questionnaire to collate all of the relevant creative and technical details to ensure we cater to your specific website needs.
3. Statement of work and quotation
We will provide you with an in-depth and comprehensive proposal to review, which will include all your website specifications as originally discussed with us. This proposal will document all relevant pricing and payment options.
4. Approval to proceed
Once you’re happy with your website brief and quotation, send us an email to confirm you’d like to proceed! Upon your approval, we generate a deposit payment and begin the first phase of developing your website.
5. Site map
Designer Websites builds an initial site map with which you can update and customise entries yourself. Your site map is crucial to outlining the amount of desired pages, content and direction prior to beginning development.
6. Theme design
Based on your creative and technical requirements, our team of designers, lead by our Creative Director select a design theme perfect for your business’ needs and functionality. We then provide you with a mock-up design featuring your company branding to establish the desired “look and feel”.
7. Design revisions
Depending on your package with us, you are provided with allocated revisions for both design and content. Your job will be to create a document listing the changes/modifications you’d like to be made. Once we’ve made those changes for you, it’s time to begin collating your content.
Designer Websites provides you with a guided folder structure to begin adding your content for the website. This requires you to compile all of the content and imagery for your website in one location and send it through to us upon completion.
Upon receiving content, we install your theme and begin development. Depending on your website package and design, development can take between 1-4 weeks from receiving the content. We then install all of your copy and imagery and ensure you are 100% happy with the layout of your site.
10. Content revisions
Once we have finished the initial development of your website, we deliver it to you for extensive review. Upon receiving your feedback we then make up to 3 rounds of revisions to perfect your website.
11. Approval to go live
Once you are completely happy with your new website, we set up all the necessary details in preparation for your site to go live. We then perform comprehensive testing and review of the website. This can take up to 3-4 working days.
12. Go live!
After final payment is received, we push your website live.
After your website goes live, we can provide you with additional training on your content management system (CMS) which will allow you to control and edit future content on your site.
14. Stay in touch
It’s important to stay in touch even after your website has gone live! We love to hear from our clients and always welcome feedback to help us improve our processes for the future.
