Process of a Website BuildThis is a high-level description of the process of developing your brand-new website.
You bring the ideas.
Aside from your website, what else might you need? Emails? Ability to schedule events? Customer management? Ecommerce? Make a list and we’ll get started! These are the requirements you have. They can change over time and it’s always better to throw up more ideas than less. All these items make up what we call the backlog.
We discuss them.
In software development this phase is called backlog grooming. We’ll prioritize your requirements and I’ll make sure I understand the details about them. We will also go through the process of refining the website design.
I do the development.
Now comes the geeky part. The technical foundation for your site is laid and the the backlog is brought to life. There is functional testing, testing of presentation across laptops, tablets and mobile phones, and more. If you want to manage the site yourself then we’ll do training and you’ll have documentation available.
You have a website!
There’s a little more to it than just flipping a switch. I want to make sure you have enough time to review everything to make sure we’ve captured everything that was prioritized on the backlog. Sometimes there’s a misspelling we missed or you want to swap out an image but overall we do this final check before takeoff and then we’re live!
