How to get started
Let's meet and review your objectives and goals and address various developmental and technological options.The goal of the initial session is a comprehensive understanding of the expected work, functionality, and business processes. This ensures that we cover the full scope of the project and helps with the development of the project timeline.
Together we develop a plan. From branding, messaging, and functionality we prepare the components for the foundation for everything we do in this Phase. All our projects, whether, web based applications, corporate websites, ecommerce websites or mobile applications; our process ensures meeting your business objectives and marketing goals.
We mock up design based on our meetings and vision. With the design in mind, we build out the general architecture of your new Website. The home and interior page templates, global navigation, and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are all created during this stage. This phase reveals how your website will function once it is complete.
Once the general architecture has been created and approved, we turn it over to you to get started on writing keyword rich and compelling website content. If you prefer, we can introduce you to a number of independent content developer/copy writer who can help you develop content. Once the content is ready to go, we move it onto the site and format the sections using CSS.
At this stage we start custom application development (programming/db) for any of the dynamic (functional, customizable) elements that is required for the project. Much of the programming and database development magic happens simultaneously with the architecture and content stages.
That's right! We said it three times! We cannot emphasize the importance of the testing process. Especially when you have a custom Web application. Once all the components and features are ready to go, we perform a final set of rigorous QA testing. After we’ve verified your site is functioning as intended and conforms to current Web design, development, and accessibility standards, we hand off to you for approval and sign off.
When your site passes QA testing, it's ready to launch and we push it into production for final publishing on the Web Server.
