Since DesignWeb was established back in 1999 our core service has always been website design and web development.
At DesignWeb we believe that there is no better marketing tool than a professional website to promote your business online. Your website is your all day, everyday showroom for your company brand. It can be used to sell products or services in a streamlined, effecient way that requires minimal overheads and offers convenience to new & existing customers.
We take the same methodical approach to developing a website for any of our customers irrespective of budget.
Define the project
The first question we ask with any website design or web development work is:
"What are you looking to achieve from your website project?"
If the client aims and objectives are feasible, often based upon their budget and the likely return on investment, then we begin by drawing up a specification of the project.
From the specification, we can prepare project costs and timescales and begin to wireframe the structure of the website. Planning is crucial to the success of the project.
Develop site structure
We recommend that customers produce a basic sitemap of their websites content. This helps the client to focus on what content they need to prepare for us, and for us to determine what is primary and secondary content, and which of these will be changing on a regular basis.
Design visual interface
Prior to any web development work being undertaken we produce a concept website design/s for the client to proof. The concept website design is an accurate representation of how your website will look, including all of the small details you would expect to find in your live web presence. Following a couple of revision stages, the site design is signed off and development work can begin.
Build and integrate
Implementation of the target specifications and functionality. Content should have been supplied in full by the client before this stage of website development.
Launching the website is a huge milestone, but it is only another step in an evolving production. DesignWeb pride ourselves in our client support and continued services after launch day. A successful website, for us, not only constitues a well designed, useable site, optimised around your chosen keywords, but a site that meets your long term aims and objectives and continues to deliver long after launch date.
After your website has launched you may want us to provide training on our integrated content management system or alternatively consider a maintenance contract with us to update the content for you.
You should make time after launch to assess your visitor statistics, Google analytics and importantly measure your goals and conversions.
We can also undertake competitor analysis, search engine submission and
one of our 3 search engine packages to improve your search engine rankings.
