WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
In today’s modern world it is essential to have website. Websites can reached vast audiences 24/7 and are often a first stop for people looking to engage your services. We provide a full range of services to set up an effective site from domain registration, hosting, branding, content development, design, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), maintenance and digital analytics.
WEB DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The first step in the design process is always getting to know your organization, why you are looking to change your site or develop a new one and what you hope to achieve through this process. There are a huge number of variables in developing a site so it is essential that we are on the same page from the beginning. We happy to conduct free consultation in person (if in the Washington D.C), by phone, email or by Skype.
After the initial meeting we will develop a comprehensive project proposal outlining goals, deliverables, timeline, pricing structure and fees, responsibilities and potentially challenges. This will also include which aspects you wish to include in the project such as developing social media platforms, help with re-branding, ongoing maintenance and support and search engine optimization. All this will also be done free of charge.
Depending on how well established your organisation it is often useful to develop a creative brief. This will look at aspects such as clarifying target audiences, site structure and functionality, style guide and branding assets (logos, graphics, taglines etc).This is especially useful if you want your organization to have a consistent brand across multiple platforms such as social media.
During the Development phase we will be in touch as often or as little as you like. Often we develop the site on a live domain (that only the developer and you can access) in order for you to be able to see how the site is progressing. This also gives us the ability to test functionality, responsiveness and show you various options as wee progress.
One of the central advantages of online communications is the variety of tools available to analyse how effective this communications has been. This can include the ability see how many people are viewing your content, for how long, how they got there and much more. We can do this externally or train you and your staff to effectively use these tools.
