What does the website development process include?
Phase One: Information Gathering
We discuss your business and website requirements in detail. Some of the aspects under discussion: a clear idea of your industry, service, product and target audience, website page types, featured content and functionality.

Information that helps: visual references to websites that you like the look & feel of (NOTE: We do not copy competitor sites).
If you require more than 8 web pages, we will prepare a quote according to your bespoke responsive website design and web development requirements and expectations. Our websites are custom designed, mobile-friendly and optimised for best UX design.

Phase Two: Planning & Design
We create a wireframe for the new website to give you an idea of the suggested content structure for each page. We then start the website design process.
We send you the website layout for approval. We then continue with the final design adding the other pages. The website content should be optimized for search engines (specific targeted keywords for every page). Note: Our SEO and Content Experts can assist with keyword research and strategy development and will be additional.

Phase Three: Web Development
This is where we develop the digital version of the approved layout design. We include testing to ensure that the site is functioning and displaying correctly. (NOTE: Testing is an important part of website development).

Phase Four: Delivery
When you are happy with the final product, we transfer the test site to your ISP (internet service provider) where your website will be hosted.

Phase Five: Website Maintenance
We provide support and ensure proper working and maintenance of features. We can assist with domain registration and hosting solutions. We ensure that your website stays up and running, and in the event that a problem pops up with your hosting or server, we will sort it out with the Hosting Provider. Upgrades or further development will be quoted on as required.

Additional Services Included
Other aspects included in the web development package (part of ENTERPRISE membership) is email newsletter setup, mailing list setup, email template creation to suit your brand and emails, and training to build an emailer. The email hosting account (via services such as MailChimp or Aweber) will be for your own account as the cost depends on your mailing list size and the frequency of your email sends.
