ANOTHER ANGLE | KEY STAGES
The steps we will go through together
Even the most simple of websites need discussion. Often our ideas of what’s required need turning around from your dream to the needs of your clients, customers or donors. We can help you bring that to live. Trust is simplicity and simplicity takes time.
STEP 1 - AGREE
We listen to what you want, layer our experience onto that and reach a working agreement on what we need to deliver.
STEP 2 - BUILD
We develop a skeleton website that is our initial view of what you have suggested. We will then take time to review the work to date so that we produce a final product in line with expectation.
STEP 3 - ITERATE
We work with you to refine, refine and refine again the look and content of your new online presence. We do this at a time that works for you whether its a weekday, evening or weekend.
STEP 4 - TEST
When we have agreed that it looks great, we put it to work and make adjustments as it settles in to its new home on the world wide web.
STEP 5 - LAUNCH
Once your new presence is published we can then help gather feedback, increase presence on search engines and link it to any social media you have.
STEP 6 - MANAGE
It’s not over…ever. The site will need ongoing management and we can provide training so that you can do it yourself or agree a package of maintenance going forward.
HOW DO WE BUILD A WEBSITE
It’s a work of collaboration and understanding
It requires a designer (us), a host (to give you a domain name, security and a place to put your website – like SiteGround) and a theme (to give your website a structure – we use Divi because it’s amazing). So that’s a few people already and it can feel daunting but you only ever deal with me!
On top of that, you often need (but not always) to add an email provider, maybe some search engine optimisation and then any specific functionality builds that you need like an online shop, contact forms, ticketing, event booking etc.
None of this is obvious from the outside so down below we give you an insight into what each of these may cost. Remember this is just a guide and which is why a free initial consultation and chat can properly develop exactly what you need for the lowest possible cost.
KEY COMPONENTS OF A WEBSITE
It’s not just someone building the site, there are other key parts…
Below we outline the four key partners in the build of a website, all provide their services at affordable levels so, whilst it looks daunting and worrying that you have to manage all of this, actually it’s much easier than you think.
