Website Development Process

Web Process

Let’s get strategic

Generally planning sessions can be carried out over the phone which saves time and get’s your project underway quickly. We’ll discuss:

  • Your Business’ current online presence
  • Your goals for online
  • What is appropriate for your business online
  • Your own skills & level of involvement in manageing your online properties

Based on these things I can provide a proposal & budget tailored to suit you & your business.

Your Content

For maximum efficiancy as much content as possible should be delivered  before design begins; as the volume of content will influence layout choices. This means providing:

  • Your Logo
  • Any other graphics you have relating to your business
  • Any images to be used online
  • Text for all the pages of your site
  • Any videos or additional content to be published

Content Management System (CMS)

We use WordPress to power our websites. WordPress is a proven & popular content management system which is free to use. Using a system like this means that once we have set-up your website you will be able to add new content & edit your website easily

What impression do you want to make?

It is so important that your personality & style shines through your website. Its equally important that its user friendly and functional. That is where we come in. We will choose the right look & feel for your website & help your content to be the hero. The best way is to define the design brief together:

  • Do you  have any preferred colours?
  • What words describe your business best; corporate, friendly, professional, hand-made, rustic, grungy, tough, fun, sporty, modern, quirky… something else?
  • Any example sites you do (or don’t) like, to steer us in the right direction.

If you don’t already have a domain we can purchase that on your behalf. It will cost rough $15-$20 per domain for 2 year registration.

We recommend to purchase both the .com & .com.au domains for your business if they are available. With the .com.au being your primary domain. You will need to supply your ABN for us to register the .com.au domain for your business.

You have two options when it comes to hosting:

Personal Hosting Account

Cost: Economy Hosting averages at $100 to $200 per year depending on the provider.

We have lift off!

While we build the site we will publish a temporary landing page with your logo, a short message and your contact details so if cutomers visit your URL they will find that important information.

You will be able to review your site as we build it and you will have the chance to make copy changes or corrections prior to launch. Once approved we ‘flick the switch’ and replace the landing page with your fully functional website –  ready for business!
