Many small business owners think that the process of creating a website is too expensive, time-intensive and difficult to make it worthwhile. But, it is possible—and easier than you think!
We have created the following process for developing a website:
Phase 2—Design: Creation of initial design concepts that show the "frame" for the pages—the basic navigation and design scheme that will remain the same across all of the pages of the site. We'll go through revisions in this stage until the "frame" design is just as you'd like it.
Phase 4—Implementation: The text and local images for the site are placed into the page template and formatted. We offer two rounds of revisions for client-requested changes during this phase, so you can make text edits and corrections after you see the text in the pages.
Phase 5—Testing: Though basic testing of the site takes place in phases 3 and 4, we'll thoroughly test the site after it has been completely assembled and revised. We test in the two most recent versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer and in the Safari browser. Additional browser testing is available.
Phase 6—Launch: We launch the site! After the site is live, we also submit it to the major search engines. We can add additional text and pages in the future (and as your budget allows).
- Phase 1—Planning: You can create an outline for the site yourself, or we can plan the site organization with you—for example, the type of pages you'd like to have on the site, and the type of sections you'd like to have on the pages. This typically addresses the “Content” portion of the website.
So it's really not that complicated! We can launch first-version sites with very simplified text, so your online presence is soon established. Refining the text and adding more pages later is easy!
