From identifying your industry landscape, competitors and target audience, our experts give life to your website with a custom design and establish a comprehensive strategy for your brand.
Here’s a glimpse into our process:
Step #1: Digital Strategy
The strategy phase educates us about your business including your UVP, target audience and competitive landscape.
We supplement this education with research that allows us to uncover relevant user behavior, competitor and industry insights to formulate data-driven recommendations.
As a result, the strategy allows us to set realistic goals and KPIs, and plan the website from the ground-up.
Step #2: Conversion funnel and user journey planning
With a comprehensive overview of your audience, competitive and industrial landscape, we proceed to plan your website’s sitemap and informational architecture.
This allows us to define the messaging for users at each stage of the conversion funnel, as well as to define pathways through the website to the key conversion points. These conversion points depend on your industry and offering.
Step #3: Wireframing
Our next step is to create a simplified black-and-white representation of your website that helps you visualize what it will look like on both mobile and desktop.
After you approve your wireframes, our designers will bring your site to life with custom UI design.
Step #4: Design
The next step is UI design. This is where we add color, typography, logos and other branding elements to each page.
This process is informed by the approved wireframes, your brand guidelines and website inspiration you provide us with.
Step #5: Development
Once we get your green light on design, it’s time for our engineers to do their magic.
Our experienced backend and frontend developers will build your website following industry best practices and detailed specification documents.
From your CMS to the on-site features and functionalities, they ensure everything runs smoothly today and tomorrow; in other words, your website will be able to scale to meet your needs.
Step #6: Quality Assurance
Our QA team uses robust, proprietary pre- and post- checklists to ensure your website looks and works impeccably. This includes responsiveness, loading speed scores, forms and features, SEO details such as header, title and meta tags, and much more.
Step #7: Website Launch
Once your website is thoroughly tested and approved, it’s ready to launch!
We’ll get it loaded onto your server and push it live.
Step #8: Maintenance
Once your website is live, we can also help you maintain it.
