How it Works

STAGE 1

Research

Information is gathered on your services, products, company, goals and online competitors to gain a clear understanding of how to position your website to gain maximum exposure and conversions.

STAGE 1
STAGE 2

Wireframes

Sitemap and wireframes are created for desktop and mobiles web page templates based on the research gathered. A link to wireframes is email to you for discussion and revisions made to the wireframes before moving on to the web design phase.

STAGE 2
STAGE 3

Web Design

The design carries on from the wireframes by adding design elements including typography, colours, images, icons, and illustrations. Placeholder body text is typically used at this stage. A link is provided to you to view the designs for both desktop and mobile devices and provide feedback for design revisions.

STAGE 3
STAGE 4

Content Creation

Content including text and images for your services, products, company profile and blog is provided by clients or a copywriter based on the design layout and is then search engine optimised.

STAGE 4
STAGE 5

WordPress Development

Our frontend developer converts the website design into HTML before our WordPress developer integrates the code into a custom WordPress theme and installs the required WordPress plugins.

STAGE 5
STAGE 6

Content Population

The website is populated with text, resized images, videos, icons and illustrations whilst your website is optimised for crawling and indexing on search engines.

STAGE 6
STAGE 7

Testing & Launch

The website is tested cross bross compatibility, user experience issues and coding errors using site auditing software before uploading the website to a secure server.

STAGE 7

Why You Should Hire Me

Active Listening

I understand the importance of listening to a clients requirements and allowing them to fully express their ideas to gain a better understanding of their goals before applying my knowledge and experience to the project.

Idea Discussion

I enjoy listening to and discussing business, website and marketing ideas with clients to create clarity, highlight issues, opportunities and create a plan of actionable steps to realise their ideas.

Multi-Skilled

I have many skills having worked in business, design, development, photography, illustration, digital marketing and many more areas which is invaluable to a small business looking to grow.

Business Minded

I understand that no matter how well a website is developed or designed, its main purpose is to generate enquiries and sales. This thinking enables me to create websites that help my clients grow their business.

Problem Solving

I'm a natural problem solver, a necessary skill as a web developer and director. I use these skills daily to find solutions for my clients requirements, deal with technical issues and refer clients to people and resources.

Agency Beating Rates

I don't have the large expenses required to run a web design agency which means I can charge a lower rate, yet having previously owned an agency, I have all the skills, know-how and experience of an agency.
