This is where we learn about you. We ask lots of questions so we can understand your goals for the website, your target audience and your business.
Planning & Strategy
Using the information gathered from phase one, it is time to put together a plan for your web site. We determine how the information will be organized and accessed by the visitors to your website.
Next we will focus on look and feel of your site. Colors, fonts, photos, layout – all the pretty stuff – in addition to deciding how your website will look on every screen size.
During this phase the website itself is created. Using the information from previous phases to guide us, we code the website according to current web and SEO standards.
This is when we verify that all the features of the website are working well on all browsers and screen sizes. During this phase, we encourage you to get on there as well, to make sure you are happy with your new website.
Once we have determined that all the features of the website are working well on all browsers and screen sizes, your website is brought live on your web server and a few finishing touches are put on for SEO and Analytics.
