Very few websites today are hand-coded from scratch, as content management systems have come a long way in being able to deliver any site for any requirement.
A content management system (CMS) is basically a fancy term for software that takes the heavy lifting out of creating a website, allowing you to focus more on content of your site than the code.
While we advocate the use of a CMS such as WordPress, we understand that you might want something a little more crafted.
To discover why you using a CMS such as WordPress for your site may be a choice worth considering, click the button below.
We’re more than happy to work with you to design and develop the perfect website for your needs and incorporating best practices and the latest frameworks. In doing so, we ensure that our code powering your site will be:
Responsive (your website will look great on all screen sizes)
Optimised (we’ll make sure the code is fast and bug-free)
Fully SEO checked (to put your business ‘above the fold’ on Google)
We make sure to involve you in the process from start to finish. This is to ensure you get the best site possible, not only what you’re looking for, but what your customers will be looking for.
Our goal is to make sure not only that you love your site, but that your visitors will love it too.
Find out how we do this by checking out our design & development process below and if you have any questions, send us a message and we’ll makes sure to answer them promptly.
Initially, we’d like to get an idea or scope of the project. This sets expectations as to what type of site you need, what your main goals are, any design features you might wish incorporated.
It’s always good to have an idea of who you’re aiming your site at, your ideal visitor. This can act as a guidepost for the design.
It might also be an idea, but not a necessity, to have some samples of content available.
We’ll then set to working up a design mockup for you to review. This will be based off web design best practices and research we’ve conducted into similar industry sites.
We will present these regularly for feedback and discussion. That way you always know how your site is progressing and provides you with multiple opportunities to give input.
Once you’re happy with the design it’s time to get to work.
Throughout the design process, we’ll be updating a testenvironment version of your site. So by the time the development phase rolls around, we most likely will have your website 90% nailed down.
We use this time to ensure all your site’s bells and whistles are in place.
Once your site is completely developed and we’re happy that everything is as it should be, we begin the testing phase.
We do this primarily to ensure we haven’t overlooked anything, that your site is responsive (i.e. that it looks great on any device), and that everything works as it should.
So, now it’s time for the big day — your website’s launch.
We provide hosting as part of most of our packages and we’d love for you to keep your site with us, as the journey doesn’t stop here.
You may find you’ll want to expand your site and/or require support for an issue at some future point.
Having your site hosted with us means we can address your needs and resolve your issues in a timely manner.
It’s by no means a necessity to let us host your site, but we hope you’d consider the associated benefits of doing so.
We’d love to hear your ideas and discuss how we might be able to help you realise them.
