When you first get in touch, I’ll ask if you have any initial ideas for how your site should look and behave. Next, we’ll discuss the material outline, including potential content, images and the role role you require your site to play in your wider business strategy.
I believe that the key to attracting consumers via a website is user experience. If the look & feel is not aesthetically pleasing, your potential customer will look elsewhere. Therefore, if you require any graphical designs such as logos to advertise your site when finished, this service can be be included as part of my service.
When the basics have been covered, I’ll then need some slightly more technical information from you. If you have trouble here, I’ll be more than happy to guide you through this process. The information I need largely relates to the process of actually putting your finished product on the web; and this usually consists of finding out whether or not you own a domain name (web address) and how you’d like to proceed with regards to web hosting.
What’s more, this channel of communication equally remains open your site has gone live, so if ever there’s a technical issue that you’re struggling to solve on your own, you can rest assured that I’ll be on hand to assist.
Although I have my favourite hosting providers, I promise not to force you down any particular route. Instead I will equip you with all necessary information, allowing you to make an informed decision to suit both the demands of your site and your budget.
When your site is finished, it will be published to your web domain on an agreed date. This is known in the business as ‘going live’.
