What do we do to get started?
First, we’ll make a list of your website goals and a list of customer needs and build the content and website design from that.
- Brand Strategy
How can my website provide that great first impression?
Collaboration between the website owners, designers, and writers is the first step in creating an effective website. We focus on guiding customers down the sales funnel and doing user testing where possible. Creating the content and visual design based on user needs makes sure that your website works for your customers.
- Visual Design
How do we get an impressive-looking website?
To get an impressive look, your website needs to represent your business’s personality, products, and services, and also meet your customers expectations. We do business, customer, and competitor research to plan an effective website before we ever start the design or code. A great-looking website also depends on having great quality written content and images on the site.
Do you implement SEO?
Search engine optimization is a big part of any website. We build SEO into the back end of your website, using title tags and keeping page titles consistent with URLs. SEO can be an element of content planning, and should be done along-side it for best results. We can also make general SEO recommendations.
How long will the website take to complete?
We start the website from the start date that we receive all of your content. Websites usually take 8 weeks to complete, with 2 weeks for each of the stages in the timeline below. It is important to complete each phase fully before going on to the next. Smaller projects may not use all of these steps.
