Here atCurrant Web Design Birmingham we follow a proven 6 stage web design process that helps our Birmingham Web Designers deliver successful solutions to our clients time and time again. So what is a web design process? A web design process is a set of tried and tested points that need to be completed in order to take a website from start to finish. By breaking down a large project into bite size chunks we are able to perfect every aspect of your website.
The stages are:
- Information Gathering & Planning
- Pre Launch – Testing
- Post Launch – Online Marketing
INFORMATION GATHERING & PLANNING
The first and often most crucial step in any successful online campaign is the information gathering and planning stages. By gathering vital information on the business, their goals & their target audience we are able to tailor the website design & development to match up with the business ethos.
Using this information we can put together a flawless plan for your website, at this stage we will develop an intricate sitemap for our customers business.
By using the information gathered in stage one we are able to transform plans into reality. We are able to deliver a visual prototype for your business. At this stage our clients have the opportunity to compile a list of feedback that we can implement into the design. At the end of the design phase the look and feel of the website will be almost complete and will be ready to move onto development.
Here at Currant Web Design Birmingham we take a strategic approach to development and the software we use for our clients website. With this in mind, we build all of our websites using open-source solutions, predominantly WordPress & Magento. Our team of talented developers know the systems inside out & can provide content managed solutions that not only look great but are extremely easy to manage for our customers.
Depending on the complexity of the development, we usually aim to deliver a fully functioning website within 4 – 6 weeks of website sign off. Again, at this stage you will be able to compile a list of amendments that we can implement into the website.
PRE LAUNCH – TESTING
Prior to launching the website, our team run through a polishing phase where we aim to attend to the final details. We address the websites speed, compatibility issues & implement onsite SEO to ensure your business ranks highly in Google straight from launch. The clients website is also ran through our quality standards checks, to ensure the website we launch is flawless.
The launch stage requires significant attention in order to avoid any issues. Our team take care of any hosting and email transfers before launching the website, ensuring as little down time as possible. Does your website contain any existing SEO? An important question that we address before launch to avoid any issues with Google rankings. If so, then we put in place a strategy to ensure your websites Google rankings do not fluctuate through the live process. Once we are satisfied that adequate precaution are in place we will then look to transfer the website onto the live server.
Once live we will run the website through the final diagnostics, health checks & setting up any Google accounts to monitor analytics.
Phase 1 – Strategy and Consulting
Before the web developing process can commence, our team of professionals will first have to understand your business, your vision and your product. To ensure that your website is 100% correct, we will be in regular meetings so that we can understand your business’s demographic, market and opponents. By doing so, Currant Web Design Birmingham can curate a unique and original strategy for your business. Analysing the competition means we can help you compete with them.
Every business is different. Whether your Birmingham business is local or global, we understand that we live in a heavily competitive age. Therefore, we’ll ensure to make your business stand out from the rest with an original concept, design and SEO strategy. By considering the whole package, we at Currant Web Design Birmingham can help build an authoritative website and digital marketing plan for your business.
Without detailed and thorough research, your website will only fail to make a mark in this increasingly digital and competitive world. While you want to be original, there are also some styles and ground rules you must abide by. You want to attract your demographic, however, to do so you need to compete with the big names and the local, small businesses with a loyal customer base. From the font choice to the colour scheme of your website, we’ll research what’ll work best for your company and what you should avoid.
As well as your website’s aesthetics, we’ll also research the best digital marketing campaigns for your business, that’ll be put in place post-launch. We’ll look for the best keywords for your business, how to implement them, and we’ll even draw up a tailored social media and email marketing campaign, highlighting how we’ll instrument them, why we’re using them, how it’ll impact your business for the better. Not only do we develop an effective and responsive website for your business, but we’ll also ensure the appropriate SEO and digital marketing campaigns are in place post-launch, maximising your business’s online visibility.
Once we’ve researched and garnered enough information on your company, what it is you do, sell and how you want to display your business, we’ll strategize how we’ll put our findings in place throughout our next phase (Phase 2). The proposal will contain both our web development plans and the digital marketing campaigns we’ve tailored from our examination of your business and the data we’ve collected.
Phase 2 – Design and Development
Only when you’re happy with our strategy and proposal will we start to develop your website. Throughout our design and development period, we will keep you updated and be confident in our approach. We won’t stray from what was decided in Phase 1, unless you, the customer, has changed their minds. During Phase 2, you can expect:
Now that our Birmingham CurrantWeb team understand exactly what it is your business wants, Currant Web Design Birmingham can properly plan the aesthetics of your website, putting all our research in place. Throughout the whole process, we will only offer a superior service to ensure your business gets exactly what they have anticipated.
Once planning is completed, Currant Birmingham Web Design put everything that we’ve learned into practice and start to craft your website, sticking to everything we’ve learnt and discussed. Under the careful guidance of our research, strategy and proposal, our Birmingham web design professionals will build a bespoke website based on your needs, wants and desires.
Design Presentation, Client Feedback & Client Approval
After our team of professionals have finalised your business’s website in the design phase, we’ll present our mock-up of your website for you to feedback any last-minute changes. Then, with the client’s feedback in mind, we’ll make the changes before presenting once again until we get client approval. During this feedback and approval phase, we can make any modifications and adaptations to your website. Our team works off your feedback, so honesty is the best policy in this case.
Project Web Development
Once we have client approval, our specialist team of Birmingham website developers will start to create and develop your website into its final form. Any changes previously discussed will be implemented.
Pre-Launch Quality Checks & On-Site Optimisation
No website can be launched without undergoing sufficient quality checks. During this stage, we will run tests on your website, checking that everything is working order. This means checking and double checking the navigation, loading times, links and even check-out stages. No rock is left unturned.
We’ll also implement SEO throughout your website to improve its online visibility and climb Google’s ranking. None of our websites will be launched unless it’s perfect – both aesthetically and technically.
Your website is up and running, raring to go! Congratulations!
Phase 3 – Post-Launch & Marketing
Although the launch of your website is an exciting business milestone, our CurrantWeb team will still be at work, executing Phase 3 to ensure your website is working to its fullest capacity. After all, what’s a website without its marketing strategy?
Your website has been launched, but the journey is far from over. So that our Birmingham team of experts can ensure everything is in check, we host a post-launch meeting with all our clients. This is when we discuss everything that’s been done, and check that everything is working accordingly, before moving onto the next step of our development process – digital marketing.
Implementation of Digital Marketing Strategies
Without digital marketing, your website will falter and fail to make a significant impact. To ensure you get the most out of your website, we’ll make sure to implement the previously agreed digital marketing strategies that were discussed in Phase 1. Although your website will have already been fully optimised through SEO, Currant Birmingham Web Design will also help your business with social media, PPC and email marketing campaigns.
Convert Traffic & Increase Customer’s Lifetime Value
Your website is up and running, your digital marketing strategies are underway, so what else is there left to do? Your website will convert traffic, and we’ll keep and we’ll keep an eye on the numbers for you. Plus, if you were ever in the need to alter your website, our trusty team of Birmingham web developers will be at hand, ready to offer you a lifetime of value and quality service.
