The Encompass Web Design Process
Development of a quality product involves much more than the design process itself. We have a thorough step by step approach to your website creation, which allows you to have your say along the way. We believe that regular communication between the designer and the client is paramount in getting that website launched to your liking. Our procedures are as follows:
The Website Consultation
The first stage of the project is to gather as much information about your business as possible. If your business is in the Mandurah, or Peel region, (or even as far as Rockingham to Australind), we will arrange a consultation with you, or your representative, to start this information gathering. If you have a business premises we would like to vist your place of work to gain knowledge of your business. We have have a simply designed set of questions, which are available before the consultation which guide us through the process. The meeting will last at least an hour, but has the potential to run into two.
The Website Plan
This is where we start to work on the plan. We set up the SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) plan, the website sitemap (The page structure and web flow) based on the SEO strategy, and start to develop the content for the pages. We contact you with a detailed plan and structure for the website for your feedback.
The Website Design
After The web design plan has been approved we can start setting up the website on a testing server. This is where we implement the Content Management System (CMS) and develop the look and feel of the website, and start incorporating the text and images required. You will be given the testing server address, where you are free to look and comment on the development.
Implementation and Testing.
When the design is approved we start impletenting additional coding, quotation forms, contact pages, shopping carts or any other needs that the site required from stage 1 and 2. Making sure that everything is working correctly.
The Website Launch
The site is moved to your domain and rechecked for consistancy. Then we are all ready to launch!
Website Maintenance and SEO Monitoring
After the launch of your website, Encompass Web Design will maintain the site, with regular checks and backups. Our ongoing SEO support will also come into operation, where the SEO strategy from the initial planning will be implemented.
Your website will now be operational and with all your backup, SEO monitoring and maintenance needs taken care of. We know that our process will ensure that your online needs are met, and your website will continue to grow with your business.
