Introduction and Discovery
We meet with you to learn all we can about you and your company. During this meeting we will introduce you to each service we offer to give you a better idea of how we can make your online presence as effective as possible. By the end of this meeting we will have agreed upon which services will benefit your business the most and what functions or features your design will need. When we return to our studio we will put together a proposal that outlines what services and functions we will be providing.
Once the proposal is signed it becomes our contract. From there we gather all existing material from your company (current website, print material, brochures, logo, colors etc.). From these we will propose a theme and create a mood board. The theme and mood board will be used to create your test site.
Building and Testing
Once the mood board and theme are finalized, we create a functional test site for you to review on our staging server. We encourage you to click on everything, view all pages, fill in all forms, anything a customer might do. We want to ensure the site works exactly as you want it to. Upon approval we will begin to add your company’s content to the site. Any functionality changes made after this point will result in additional charges.
In this phase we train you on how to update and edit your new website. We will show you how to use certain functions of your website and train another person(s) who will be updating the site. This training session last about 2 hours (it can be 1 hour one day and 1 hour another or 2 hours all together).
Decided in the introduction phase, we will create any social media pages you need to help tell the story of your company. We will also review and teach you and your employees on the proper use of your company’s social media pages, how to post meaningful, interactive posts, and how to respond to negative and positive feedback/reviews from customers. This is a second, separate training session focused solely on social media and how to integrate it into your current/future marketing plans.
In this final phase, we’ll move your test site from our staging server to the live web server. Your website will now be live so all your customers, and the world, can see, and use your new website.
