It's no longer okay to create a one-width website or a single-browser interactive ad. You need design that can fit the unique styles of each browser, mobile device and whatever else you use to access the internet. Thus, we strive to accelerate the production process, rapidly expediting each of the steps, while maintaining quality web development services. Below we've outlined the typical website development process:
It's easy to make a website for no one, but we'd rather make your website for actual people. That's why we focus our initial website development strategy on gathering information about you and your organization. Many things need to be taken into consideration when the look and feel of your website is created. It involves a good understanding of you-what your business does, what you want to achieve, the target audience and the outcomes those audiences expect, type of content, your competitors and how the web can be utilized to help your business or organization.
The define phase is aptly titled. You must begin defining user needs, goals you desire to accomplish, and your plan for positioning yourself among the competition. Determining the user needs first is crucial. You can develop, what you believe to be, a great product or service. But if the end-users don’t have a need for the product or service, your product/service will not survive. We know that if you have done adequate research in defining your product and it’s competitive positioning, you will have taken the key initial steps in continuing onward and upward with a successful product.
During the define phase, we will also help you decide what web development technologies should be implemented. Elements such as interactive forms, ecommerce web design, web animation, etc. can be incorporated into the plan.
Once we know what you want to put on your site, we'll create a basic outline design of where things should go. Here we can test that elements are positioned correctly, the navigation works and that you are happy with the basic content.
When we have an idea of all the elements, our web designers will produce a number of different designs, usually of a home page initially, followed by a number of internal layouts, which will then be presented to you for approval. There really is no limit to what can be achieved visually and our designers love a challenge! Avid Web will work closely with you to develop your chosen design and produce further pages before handing the project over to our developers to build your site. We typically arrange a meeting to discuss the designs before finally “signing off” an approved set of designs.
After the designs are agreed upon, the files are transferred to in-house web developers who start to turn the design into a functioning website. We hire web developers who understand design too and work to ensure that we bring our designs to life.
Once the various layouts and custom functionality are developed, our developers will begin to build out the various levels of website structure (without content initially) so the website can begin to be navigable.
At this stage, the website will be accessible by you via our development server where you will be able to click around and see your website coming to life! You can suggest any additional changes or modifications you would like done.
We no longer use just a desktop PC to access the web; we use a plethora of different devices throughout the day to access websites, from iPads to Smart TVs.
Once your website is nearing completion, we test every single page on a range of different devices to ensure the experience is the same regardless of the device used. We’ll also check to ensure that all of the code written for your website validates and meets the current web development standards.
This is obviously the most exciting part of the process, where we finally start to see the impact of you new website. However, before we launch your amazing new website we check and double check everything to make certain your new website goes live without a hitch.
We handle the entire process to ensure it is as seamless as possible, and we can usually assure you that there will be no “down-time” during the launch process.
Once your site is live, we typically arrange a meeting to discuss how we can start marketing your website to your potential customers.
