First, we need to thoroughly understand your business, your business goals, your customers and their expectations and behaviour, and how your website factors into all of it. We’ll also look at the competitive landscape to establish context and benchmarks for how your site should function and then improve on that. This stage will give us the foundation for moving forward with just the right recommendations for the design and development of your new responsive website.
The website will include a social media widget on the home page to display your social share buttons on your blog posts, an email signup form on your contact page. We’ll install a number of plugins for launch, which will include a simplified way to manage the navigation, automatically backup the database, SEO tools so you can manage the title, keywords and Meta description tags, and an XML site-map generator which will help Google index your pages automatically.
Once we’re armed with this information, we’ll set to work sketching out interface layouts for 3-5 different views, including the home page, subpage, the blog template, and any additional templates needed. Wireframes look like simple skeletons of your website without the visual polish of the finished design, allowing us to experiment and iterate on solutions quickly so that we have a good sense of how content should be laid out across different screen sizes.
We’ll test the website in a variety of browsers, including Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer 9. We’ll also test the responsive design on iPhone and Android devices. We’ll test the functionality of the site to ensure there are no errors or broken links and then hand it over to you for review on a test server. You’ll have two rounds of minor revisions or tweaks to the sites, and once you’ve tested the website and are happy with its functionality then we’ll launch.
We recommend WordPress as your content management system (CMS) you can update the content yourself and it is the most popular open-source CMS in the world with thousands of developers constantly improving it and contributing plugins to extend its functionality. Your website will initially contain between 5-10 static pages including; home page, about us, services, contact and blog for you to publish posts with search, tagging and category filters.
