The term Website Design is sometimes used to mean just graphic design. But this is only part of what we do in the website design phase of your website development.
We begin by determining the requirements for your website. That means that we will start by asking you a lot of questions about your business and what you want your website to do for you.
What kind of website do you need? What should it do? What will it look like? How often will the content of the site need to change? We also need to know who will maintain your website and how they plan to do it. What are their technical skills?
Websites can range in complexity from a single static page of text to a complex web-based internet application, electronic business, or social network service.
After we have gathered the answers to the questions we ask, we will propose a design for your site. This will include the determination of whether you need a website with static pages or dynamic pages; the navigation and overall architecture of the site; and finally the Look and Feel of the site.
Depending on the complexity of your website, there may be several iterations within the design phase to arrive at the design that will work best for you. Once you approve the design, we begin to build your site.Click here to learn about the development phase...
Website Development (Build)
In the development phase, we build the website based on the design that is created in the first step of our process. This is where our technical skills come into play. In this step we may employ variety of technologies including:
- HTML, DHTML and XML
- Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
- Relational Databases (MySQL or MSSQL)
- Server-Side scripting such as Coldfusion or PHP
Online Promotion & Marketing
Even if you build it, they may not come!
We can help you get the word out about your new website.
We help you market your site using a variety of tools and techniques.
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
As we all know, search engine placement is very competitive. Optimizing your site for optimal placement is both an art and a science.
The process of optimizing your site for search engines is part of our initial design and development, but can continue after the website is made public. The strategies for SEO include:
- Content-rich web pages
- Careful wording and placement of html meta tags and other html elements.
- A clean design and valid page markup that conforms to web standards as defined by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
- RSS Feeds
- Pay-per-click advertising
- Free advertising (Craig's List & BackPage)
- Linked In
As a service to our clients, we act as a Value-Added Reseller(VAR) for commercial website hosting. Of course you are welcome to contract for website hosting services on your own (once we have determined the type of hosting you might need.) However, if you like, we can take over some of the complex aspects of setting up your hosting account. This includes pointing your domain name to the appropriate DNS (Data Name Servers) and setting up your email accounts, etc. We also provide technical support and ongoing monitoring of your hosting services.
