1. Strategy

The website process begins by listening to each client carefully. It is important to understand and then identify specific expectations and needs.

  • Goals: Clearly outline business goals and website needs.
  • Research: Identify and research the target audience, competitors, design options and technical choices.
  • Website Specifications: Is a traditional, mobile, or responsive website needed? Is it important to include social media integration or a blog? Identifying and outlining the specific features is imperative.
  • Phases: Outline all expectations, deliverables, and the process for each phase.
  • Plan: Map out the content, structure, and how users interact with the website. A website map provides a visual representation of the flow of the site.

2. Design

  • Color & Style: Review color choices and style specifications that are appropriate for specific needs.
  • Comps: Taking into consideration all prior research, pages are designed. This process included providing custom options for you to choose from.
  • Visual Elements: Depending on the size and scope of the project, graphics, buttons, menus, and mobile device elements may also be created with a ui/ux focus.

3. Develop

  • Front-End Development: So that you can see the development in progress, we build websites it phases, or steps. The first step is to develop the visual front-end shell of the site and then continuing on to the more complex elements.
  • Mobile & Responsive: Depending on project specifications, a mobile or responsive site may be provided.
  • Back-End Development: This includes database development, server-side scripting, security features, e-commerce, content management systems and other technologies that happen in the background.
  • Bells & Whistles: Finally, cool, fancy, eye-candy features are completed.

4. Testing

Extensive testing for functionality, performance, security and other features are tested first by Design Idea, and then handed to the client to review for final approval.

5. Launch

  • Go Live: The completed website is transferred to your domain name and hosting server.
  • Training: We provide you with any documentation and training that may be necessary for you to take over your website.
  • Maintenance: Finally, websites do need maintenance. We are happy to provide additional maintenance and changes you may need down the road.
