Phase 1 – Strategy and Consulting
There is not a one-size fits approach for Leicester website design, it simply does not exist. Each business or organisation has a different culture and set of goals. At Currant Web Design Leicester, we need to fully embrace your company’s ideals and philosophy, your goals and objectives, your past and your future; and the only way we can do this, is by getting to know you, your industry and your customers. This is why we have such a strong Strategy and Consulting Phase. It allows us to discover the finer points of the details of the products and services that you offer, the operational side of your business, and your vision.
For us to develop a website that works for your specific business, we need to understand your business model, your target audience, and the ultimate aim of your website. The information that we need broadly consists of:
- Your brand
- Your product
- Your audience
- The features and scope that you envision
- Your timeframe
- Your budget
This information gathering exercise is crucial to the website’s and our mutual success. We need to understand and clarify your objectives for the website, so that we can guide your vision for not only an aesthetically stunning website, but one that is optimised to achieve its full potential.
Understanding is a two-way street. We need to understand your business, but equally, you also need to the design process and what is involved. At CurrantWeb, we lead you through the different stages of the web design process, so that you are fully informed from day one; this allows us to successfully work collaboratively and in partnership to reach our mutual goals.
Your unique website design will be developed in response to careful and detailed research around your industry, the Leicestershire locality and beyond.
- Stakeholders: the stakeholders in your organisation hold the keys to your website’s success. They will know the elements of your website that they would like to see improvement to. There may be a form that can be included on your website that would help your marketing team harvest additional data, or perhaps an additional field in the checkout process that would make your accounting systems more efficient.
- Competition: we identify patterns in products that are being offered, industry ‘must have’ pages, and even what works for your competitors, and what doesn’t. This enables us to create a site that gives your business the competitive edge, and exceed your industry’s benchmark.
- Customers: your customers are essential to your website’s success, and getting a complete understanding of the demographic is necessary to the whole design process. The website is your shopfront, and the design must be appeal to your target audience. Different layouts, fonts, and colours can be used to engage the audience according to their demographic. Profiling your customers will also help us to identify and implement the best SEO (search engine optimisation) techniques to engage your audience, whether that is to increase customers in Leicester alone, nationally or even internationally.
Strategy and Proposal
Having completed extensive research into your business and industry, we will be in the position to develop a design strategy that is tailored to your business’s needs to fully maximise its potential. Currant Web Leicester will provide you with a bespoke proposal that provides the details of our digital strategy for both web and digital marketing. This document will give you a visual understanding of our streamlined design and development processes, and how we can provide solutions to the challenges that have previously been identified within your currant methodologies; we do this through creativity, search engine optimisation and social media integration. It also gives you an opportunity to voice your feedback: remember, this is a collaboration!
Phase 2 – Design & Development
Once the proposal and strategy has been confirmed and agreed, we then move onto the Design and Development Phase. This is the phase where we let lose with our creativity and pull out the stops, and work meticulously to develop a site to exceed your expectations.
The collated data that was collected during Phase 1 is further analysed and considered, so that we can further strengthen the design that has been agreed.
This is where our plans are translated into the raw product. It is an exciting time for us to see the website take shape from the words within the proposal and into a tangible product. This is where the magic happens, and we finally see the fruits of our labours.
Design Presentation, Client Feedback & Client Approval:
The initial design presentation is your first opportunity to see the prototype website. You will be talked through its features and taken on the users’ journey. This is the time where your feedback is necessary, if you have any concerns or questions, now is the time to raise them. Our success is your success, and changes can be made until you are 110% happy with the design: we welcome your feedback.
Project Web Development:
Once you have approved the site, our specialist Leicester web design team now enhance the technical capabilities of the website, ensuring that the site is fully optimised for responsiveness, the content is managed, and it is updated to incorporate the latest technologies. No stone is left unturned: your site is 100% mobile and SEO friendly.
Pre-Launch Quality Checks & On-Site Optimisation:
Nothing is left to chance. At this stage, your website is checked, double checked and triple checked to ensure that any bugs are fixed, and quality standards assured. Your onsite optimisation is measured against the initial agreed strategy and any lastminute amendments made.
And exhale. The satisfaction of seeing your website up and live is immeasurable. Both you and CurrantWeb will have worked hard to get to this stage, but the end result always brings joy.
Phase 3 – Post-Launch & Marketing
Post-launch is an incredibly important time for your website, and it is a critical phase in terms of influencing how successful your website is going to be.
You will regroup with CurrantWeb to discuss the project and the next steps. Since the launch of the website, you may have identified areas that need tweaking and adapting to suit your business model, or you may have had client feedback that needs to be actioned. We are all ears! It is a good idea to document your queries and questions as they occur post-launch, so that any issues that you have can be addressed and a solution provided.
Implementation of Digital Marketing Strategies:
The digital marketing strategies that were detailed in the proposal can now be further assessed and developed. Now is the time to kickstart your campaigns. We will discuss with you the tactics that can be implemented across the digital landscape: Leicester local SEO, PPC, email, and the all-important social media campaigns. This is an exciting time to really drive your business forward to optimise its potential.
Convert Traffic & Increase Customer’s Lifetime Value:
Increased traffic to your website is one of the indicators of your website design’s success; however, it is the conversion rate that we are really interested in. The design of the site will be optimised to have clear calls to action, engage your visitors and increase the conversion rate. CurrantWeb provides our customers with an opportunity to hit targets and increase the return on investment year on in.
