7 Step Process

This is our roadmap

Step 1

Goal 1dentification

Where I work with the client to determine what goals the site needs to fulfill. I.e., what its purpose is.

Step 2

Scope definition

Once we know the site's goals, we can define the scope of the project. I.e., what pages and features the site requires to fulfill the goal, and the timeline for building those out.

Step 3

Sitemap and wireframe creation

With the scope well-defined, we can start digging into the sitemap, defining how the content and features we defined in scope definition will interrelate.

Step 4

Content creation

Now that we have a bigger picture of the site in mind, we can start creating content for the individual pages, always keeping search engine optimization in mind to help keep pages focused on a single topic. It's vital that you have real content to work with for our next stage:

Step 5

Visual elements

With the site architecture and some content in place, we can start working on the visual brand. Depending on the client, this may already be well-defined, but you might also be defining the visual style from the ground up. Tools like style tiles, moodboards, and element collages can help with this process.

Step 6


By now, you've got all your pages and defined how they display to the site visitor, so it's time to make sure it all works. Combine manual browsing of the site on a variety of devices with automated site crawlers to identify everything from user experience issues to simple broken links.

Step 7


Once everything's working beautifully, it's time to plan and execute your site launch! This should include planning both launch timing and communication strategies — i.e., when will you launch and how will you let the world know? After that, it's time to break out the bubbly.

Do you do website redesigns?

Yes, we sure do, and we love it! It’s always great fun to redesign a site and give it a completely new look and feel. To make sure your new site looks completely new and different, we start from scratch and build you a brand new website.

Who creates the content?

No one knows the business better than the person running it. So we leave all text and photos to the client. Thankfully we have some pretty handy tips on content creation, which will save you time and make things much easier.

Does the price include SEO?

YES! This is standard with all our designs. The battle to get to the top of Google, Yahoo!, Bing and the like has become quite a challenge. You need all the help that you can get!

Can I edit my new website?

We use WordPress CMS to design all of our responsive websites. A custom training video comes standard with all WordPress web design packages. You can make changes and edits to your new websites easily with Integrated page builder.

What about mobile devices?

It will look fantastic on smartphones and tablets. So there is no need for you to spend $$$ on a mobile site. Since up to half your customers will access your website from a mobile device, we think that’s pretty cool.

What about tech support?

Yes. Everything from Malware removal, migrations, Ecommerce issues to SSL certificates.
