Potential clients often ask many questions, some of the more common ones relate to how I go about building a website, what are their responsibilites and what control do they have over the process. I enjoy building websites and try to make the experience enjoyable and stress free for my clients too. To that end I have added this page to help explain the process.
Firstly we will discuss the requirements and goals for your website and get to know one another a little better. Hopefully I will be building your website, so I need to know you and your business. Communication is key within the whole process so building a open relationship from the get-go is a good starting point.
Once I know your requirements and goals I can calculate the projected cost. Once this has been accepted we can move on.
I will write out a contract detailing all deliverables and requirements for both parties. Once this is agreed and signed I will request an initial 50% payment before work commences.
The depth of this stage will vary depending on your websites requirements. In general it involves me getting to know you and your business fully so I can build a suitable website that represents you with accuracy. I will also look into your competition to identify how your site can stand out and increase conversion rates.
I will construct several wireframes detailing where elements are placed within the structure of the pages both for mobile and desktop layouts. We will then discuss these designs and talk about a colour theme, font choices and interactive elements.
Having agreed upon the wireframe designs and selected potential colours and fonts I will create designs for several pages in a suitable image format for us to review. At this point I will make any changes deemed necessary and review again before moving onto the next stage.
With a design in place I will now begin building the site. Whilst I am doing this my progress will be made available online and updated regularly for you to review.
With the website built and approved by yourself I will now deploy the site online and test it thoroughly on all major devices and browsers.
I will help you get your new website up and running, whether hosted with myself or not.
Hopefully you will consider working with me again and keep in touch. Although your website has been built using the latest technologies this industry moves fast and I would be more than happy to help you and your business evolve and keep up.
