Our Process & Workflow

Over years of completing hundreds of client projects, we've created a workflow that streamlines our client projects and makes our journey together as efficient as possible. This allows us to keep our prices low while keeping maintaining a high standard.
VIEW OUR WORKFLOW

Phase 1

Gathering Phase

Here's where the adventure begins. During Phase 1, we'll be gathering as much information and as many assets as possible to build your brand's online web presence. The more information we have to work with, the better. 

INITIAL DEPOSIT

To begin each project, a 50% deposit is required prior to starting any work. 

COLLECT IMAGES

You'll submit any images or image themes you'd like to incorporate for this project. The more you have, the better. 

COLLECT ALL BRAND INFO

We'll gather information regarding your brand identity, mission statement and products or services offered.

INCLUSION LIST

At this point, we'll get a complete list of everything you'd like to offer prior to moving on to phase 2. 

LIST WEBSITE PAGES OR SECTIONS

Here's where we'll list out every page your project requires, along with each section of those pages. This will give us a great starting point.

INCORPORATE LOGO AND COLORS

We'll use your brand's logo and colors (if you have them) to incorporate the smallest of details and create an air tight branding style. 

IMAGE PLACEMENT

Once we know what pages have which sections, we'll begin to place the images collected in their respective areas. 

TEXT PLACEMENT

Just as with images, we'll begin to import all the text details of your brand in their respective areas as well. 

Phase 2

Design Phase

Once we've collected as much detail and as many digital assets as we possibly can, we'll begin to piece together the overall "skeleton" of your brand. Once we get each page mapped out, we'll begin to decide which content should be populated where on each page.

Phase 3

Build Phase

This is where the real magic happens. During the Build Phase, we'll take every asset and all information from the previous two phases, and bring your vision to life on a live, preview-ready url for you to view at any point during the process. We'll then submit the build for your review and move on to testing your site as a user, and making everything mobile and tablet responsive.

DEPLOY LIVE LINK

We'll begin building your website on a live link that you can preview at any time. We can either use a temporary domain or create a coming soon page to hide our work until we're ready.

BUILD REQUIRED PAGES

Each page from our design phase will be built to spec and include all the necessary brand info, content and images/videos. We'll build the site navigation menus to match the page flow too.

ADD INTEGRATIONS

If you're utilizing third party applications, such as an online booking system or an email marketing platform, then we'll begin integrating those systems during this build phase.

SUBMIT FOR REVIEW

Once we have all of the pages built according to plan, we'll submit a link to you to live review the website. We'll review the website on a desktop screen, and then make it mobile responsive in the next phase.

TEST USER EXPERIENCE

We'll use every page of the website just as an outside user or customer would view it. This will allow us to find any leaks or malfunctioning items to fix before launching to the world.

MAKE RESPONSIVE

Once you like the content and layout of your website, we'll begin to make every page mobile and tablet responsive, allowing customers to view your website on a variety of different devices.

CHECK HYPERLINKS

Dead links can break a website and leave a sour taste in a customer's mouth. We'll test every link and every menu on your website to make sure that there aren't any unwanted drop-offs due to broken links.

TEST THIRD PARTY APP CONNECTIVITY

Regardless of which third party applications you decide to incorporate into your website, we'll have to test those in the same fashion a future customer would experience them. 

Phase 4

Testing Phase

This is the phase that can make or break an online brand. The last thing you want to do is deploy a website that's broken or substandard. This is why Phase 4 testing is imperative to the outcome of your brand launch. We'll make sure that your website will be running as smooth as expected by the time you share your domain with the world. 

Phase 5

Deployment Phase

We've made it this far, now it's time to deploy your website and turn the switch to the "on position." After receiving your final payment, we'll transfer your website to whichever host you decide (if not us), and then deploy your site to your domain and/or remove the coming soon page that kept our work a secret.

FINAL PAYMENT COLLECTED

Before deploying your website and making it live, you'll submit the remainder of your payment and that will kickstart the transition from under construction to live to the public. 

SITE IS DEPLOYED TO YOUR DOMAIN

We'll tell your domain registrar to route traffic to the new website on the host of your choice. Once this happens, it takes about 24-48 hours for the changes to take effect.

COMING SOON PAGE REMOVED

If we built your website behind the scenes on your domain already, we would have likely used a coming soon splash page to cover our work. At this point, we'll remove the page and make your homepage live.

CHOOSE TO HOST WITH US OR TAKE OVER FROM HERE

If you decide to host your website with us, you'll receive peace of mind knowing that you don't have to worry about updating and maintaining anything. If you go with a different host, then we'll gladly deploy your site anywhere you choose.
