So You Need a Website?
Here’s how I make it happen.
Using an electronic form and follow-up meeting or online conference, I’ll ask all of the right questions to determine your goals, why you want or need a website, and exactly what we need to achieve to make you and your business shine. You’ll need to really think about this and dig deep!
Once I’ve collected all of the critical background and foreground information, I’ll create a visual sitemap of your website so we can see and understand what we’re trying to communicate, and how the message and purpose will be structured.
Depending upon the complexity of the project, I’ll then construct either low-fidelity (plain old rough sketch) prototypes, or high-fidelity (digital) interactive prototypes, representing your website’s main pages so you can see how my solution will work for you and your project goals. You won’t see actual design at this point – this is simply to nail down the concepts and elements of your website’s page structure before we move on to your website design renderings.
Once our prototypes are nailed down, I then create color website design renderings that, when completed and approved, will pretty much resemble your finished site.
Now that you’re thrilled with the color, design and layout of your website, I go underground for a few weeks to my geeky coding place and build your website. Then, once I’ve built your website, I’ll test to make sure everything is working and plugged in as it should be.
Once I’ve finished building and testing your website, it’s now ready for your review. You’ll have a chance to check everything over and ensure all of your website’s elements, features and functionality are in place just the way you want.
Now that everyone is completely ecstatic with your shiny new website, we launch your site and announce it to the world!
If requested as part of your project scope, I will provide online training tools in the form of videos and ebooks so that you can take over the maintenance and upkeep of your website. These videos and ebooks will live in the dashboard of your website, and are yours to keep.
