When beginning the process of designing and coding your web site, we first meet with you to find out what your business needs are and what you want to accomplish with your web site. Once we determine the factors that are important to you, we can set up the proper hosting solution and search engine strategy that will maximize your business' presence on the web. We will decide if you need standard hosting or if you need hosting with a full marketing platform . Then the design process begins with a wireframe of your website. A wireframe is like a blueprint of how your UI will be structured in each size device (desktop, tablet, mobile, etc.).
After you have approved the wireframe, we proceed with the comps. Comps are a visual image of how your site will actually look in the real world. They will contain the actual images you will have in your site banner. We comp each page that has a unique layout. We ask at this point for you to provide any images you'd like to have on your site. Otherwise we will use stock photography.
After the site is fully coded, it is time to launch. There are many things to do to prepare for launch, both on our end and the client's end. I won't bore you with the details of structured data, alt text, meta data, testing or the other technical terms we as developers need to do. But as a website owner you will need to prepare for the birth of your new website with an announcement in various forms such as email marketing and social media.
