You know what you want. We’re here to make it happen. We will get to know you and your business, your goals and vision. We think it's really important to understand what you want out of the website and shape the whole project around your wishes.
We collectively put all our ideas on the table and form a coherent set of requirements. The end result of this stage will be a set of documents which include a sitemap, technology requirements and rough timescales.
We explore different branding ideas to find the perfect typography and colour palettes for your new website. This stage isn't concerned with structure. We think it's important to think about these separately at first.
If you have any technological requirements, this is where we will fully get to grips with them. One of the most important aspects is understanding the right content management system to use for your requirements. All Content Management Systems (CMS's) have their strengths and weaknesses. We understand what they are and which ones are suitable for you. Integration with other systems is also crucial. We have a huge amount of experience integrating third party systems into websites we craft, from payment gateways to travel booking and reservation systems. Finally we will discuss hosting options with you. We offer our own hosted solution, but we are happy to help you host it anywhere you like.
We start getting real now. We create a fully navigable website prototype that allows you to see how the system might work. The prototype is all about structure and navigation. We show where all the elements will sit and how they interact with one another.
We have the branding, we have the structure (prototype); we have everything you need to turn all of this into reality. We will design all the key pages and provide a style guideline for all other ancillary pages. We don't provide flat designs at this stage. We create prototype quality frontend mock-ups, that you can use like a real website.
This is where everything is brought together and turned into the final thing. We setup the CMS chosen, install the theme, create the templates, integrate with third parties and do all the other bits and pieces required to bring the website to life.
This is something we will do for you or something you may wish to do yourself. We will have set up the content management system up in a way that makes it as easy as possible to enter all the content.
We first ensure the website has delivered everything that we agreed it would. We make sure everything works as expected and the site responds correctly in all common devices (Mobile, Tablets and Desktops)
The site is moved to its final location and put live. If you choose to put the site live in A/B mode then we will only send some users to the new website so we can measure the improvement.
We look at how things are going. We look at your analytics and install some of our own tracking software to understand your users’ journeys and determine where things can be improved. We will sometimes want to do A/B or multi-variant testing to try out a range of alternatives and see which one works the best.
Whether you need some help with the CMS or have found a little bug, we are here to help. We will supply you with an account to our support helpdesk system along with a telephone number and email address.
