At Lite Web, all the work we deliver is custom, including our client-tailored Web design and development approach. The following phases ensure we address every facet of your site throughout the process.
Learning about your company, your competitors, reviewing your current website, as well as any specific traffic, design or search engine positioning goals you have is our first step in the process.
After a path is established, you’re introduced to your project manager who will be your main point of contact. A spreadsheet is provided that will prompt you for several assets needed to begin the design and development of your site. These assets can include:
- Registrar information
- Logos and graphics
- Social media links
- Example sites
- Email addresses
- Additional design inspiration
Our team creates a custom screen blueprint (page schematic) representing the skeletal framework of your website. The wireframing process will be the focus of what your site will do, not partially how it will look at this time, as wireframes are created for the purpose of arranging elements to best accomplish a particular purpose. One round of revisions is included for each.
Homepage Design and Interior Page Design
Our designer creates a homepage concept, plus an interior page concept. One round of revisions is included for each.
100% satisfaction is our goal with every site we create, and for this reason, the design feedback process should be thorough and comprehensive. We provide one round of revisions to both the homepage and interior page at no additional cost for this reason.
If our initial concept misses the mark entirely, we provide a second one free of charge.
Additional revisions are billable, and your project manager works with you to implement these in the most cost-controlled manner possible.
Development and Build
Our development team transforms your design concept into a fully functional website that meets the highest standards in Web design. Using the latest coding techniques and concepts, we build a site that’s future ready – a site that is optimized for all browsers, PCs, Macs and mobile devices.
Site Review and Edit
We implement a thorough quality assurance process, testing your site to ensure it’s highly optimized, functional and ready for your review.
Once the site is delivered to you, you’re allowed one round of final content revisions at no additional charge. The design and site architecture will be fully integrated at this time, so any major revisions to these elements will be billable.
Our developers launch your approved website in a live environment. An extensive publish checklist is used; we submit your site to the major search engines; and we install analytics for tracking purposes.
We provide you with login credentials and a user guide so that you can maintain your site without the need for a professional. We can also arrange a training call to walk you through your Lite Web dashboard, if desired.
If you’re aware upfront that the included rounds of revisions and training will not be sufficient, it’s important to let us know as soon as possible so these costs and expectations can be incorporated into the scope of your proposal.
