Ensuring the visual design & functionality kicks goals.
Planning & Preparation
Getting on the same page
We start by discussing your brand, where you sit in the market, your business and website goals, and who your customers are.
From here we’ll recommend a package that best suits your needs and budget. If you’re happy to proceed, we send a getting started invoice (usually 30%) and get to work.
Gather the content
For a smooth and successful build – we gather all content before development commences. Here’s what we’ll need from you:
Great images sell your product / service and original photos of your business, team, etc. win trust. Professional photography is always highly recommended but a good camera (even a phone) in great lighting can work wonders for your website. We are happy to professionally edit the photos you take as part of your website package.
Text & Files
We highly recommend working with a professional copywriter, but we are also happy to tweak and improve your own content for maximum impact. Remember to include as many testimonials as you can.
If you don’t have a logo, we’ll include a logo design in your package. It would be designed before starting on your website.
If you already have a domain, we’ll need your tech support contact ready for launch or we can transfer and manage it for you.
If you don’t have a domain name, we can help choose, register and manage it for you.
Now we can assess the content, discuss your website goals and finalise the website structure. We like to consider the user journey and any gaps in the content to optimise your chances of conversion.
Design & Develop
Based on your brand guide, logo, and/or any requirements you have for the aesthetics, we get to work designing the Home page and one inner page. It’s completely fine if you have no idea what you want it to look like and wish to leave it to us.
Once a couple pages are built, we get your feedback and make adjustments before building the rest of the website. You have plenty of opportunities to provide more feedback along the way.
But does it work on mobile…
The final stage of development is to test and optimise your website for all devices. A website that looks good and functions well on mobile is essential today no matter what industry you’re in.
High fives all round! Your website goes live, we submit your sitemap to Google, and your final invoice is sent.
Your website is hosted on the best servers in the world with daily backups, second-to-none security, and speedy delivery to your users. Quality hosting ensures peace of mind and the smooth running of your website without stressful interruptions.
Just like your phone; website software must be kept up to date. We take care of that as part of a maintenance plan.
Google rewards websites kept fresh and well maintained. So after launch, we can have a chat about any on-going services you may need – including staff training so you can maintain your own blog, shop, etc.
Want to add an eCommerce store? Great! Need more pages and services added after a few months? Easy! Want to start a blog but not sure how? We’d love to help.
Your website is built to seamlessly expand and grow with your business.
