The Web Design Process
Before we embark on any project we take as much time as is necessary to ensure that we understand how your business, club or charity works, how you currently target your market and what your visions for the future are. Our aim is to forge a lasting relationship with you and we believe that the key to achieving this is to work very closely with you at the beginning to understand your needs exactly, only then can we deliver your expectations.
The first step is the initial consultation where we will gather all the information, most people already have a rough idea of what they want, but don't worry if that's not the case as we are there every step of the way, you may have your own ideas based on the features or themes that other sites use or it could be your own completely fresh vision,
Perhaps you already have a site that is up an running and doing everything that you want, maybe there are just a few things you'd like to see changed, or it simply needs bringing into line with the latest technology, We are happy to help in this area too, we can have our developers examine the site and background code, we'll then consult with you on what you'd like to change and make any recommendations that will ensure we deliver successfully.
One thing to remember is that your agreed fee is for the development time fully inclusive of all the necessary consultations, we will take as long as need be to discuss any ideas and concepts with you in full, once we reach this stage we design a "visual model" of the site where we meet again to discuss the design fully and agree any changes to the layout or styles.
Once at this stage we can hand the project over to the developers for coding, they will ensure that your vision is created as quickly and smoothly as possible and any conflicts in design will be highlighted to you with alternative solutions before we proceed any further, most importantly we will keep you informed of progress as regularly as you wish, and you can sit back and relax while we put everything together.
Content Management System
Being able to make changes whenever necessary is an important part of managing your web presence and ensuring that your visitors find the content interesting, by making regular changes to images and text you keep the website looking fresh.
Our CMS system is by far the easiest system to use, no text editors and no code to learn, you simply log into the CMS, click the page you want to edit and the site loads in your favourite browser exactly as you would expect to see it, clearly identified are all the pre-defined areas you can change, simply make the amendments, or upload new images, click Publish and then check to see it's what you wanted,
As there are no text editors or code to learn you can relax and edit away to your hearts content safe in the knowledge that you can't break it.
If you have a Google Analytics account we can also link that to your CMS Control Panel where you will be able to see how each page of your website is performing, how long people stay on each page, where they came from, where they went to, and even what browser or device they were using, along with all of the other features Google support in an easy to read and simple to understand layout.
