This is a collaborative process so that together we can build a brand that both you and your audience are obsessed with.
The Five-Step Process
We cover a lot of ground in six weeks, so to make it easy to manage, we break it down into five different phases…
- Plan: Upon working with us, you’ll receive a comprehensive welcome packet that will serve as your guide to the entire process. This packet will include key information such as project timelines, deliverables required from you, important milestones, and more. It’s designed to ensure that you have all the necessary information at your fingertips and that we’re able to work together effectively and efficiently.
- Strategize: We’ll kick off with an in-depth discussion about your website project. This will be an opportunity for us to understand your website requirements and goals in more detail. We’ll ask questions and listen carefully to your input, taking into account your brand identity, target audience, and any specific features or functionalities you have in mind. Based on this initial discussion, we’ll propose a plan of action on the best approach to achieve your goals, considering factors such as design, user experience, and technical feasibility.
- Create: Building on insights gathered during our intensive strategy session, our team will craft a custom design that captures the essence of your brand, creates a positive user experience, and effectively communicates your message. We’ll involve you closely in the process and present you with various design concepts until we arrive at the perfect design for your website. Our goal is to create a unique, visually stunning, functional, and user-friendly website that exceeds your expectations.
- Refine: We’ll work collaboratively with you to incorporate your feedback, make any necessary revisions, and ensure that every final detail of your website is perfect. Our team of experts will meticulously review your website to ensure that it is optimized for performance, functionality, and user experience. We understand that even the smallest details matter, which is why we’ll pay close attention to every aspect of your website, from the layout to the typography, to ensure that everything is just right.
- Launch: Once your website is complete, we’ll schedule a walk-through session where we’ll guide you through your new website and provide you with a quick tutorial on how to navigate and update it. Our goal is to ensure that you feel confident and are empowered to manage your website with ease. We’ll be available to answer any questions you may have, and we’ll provide you with a comprehensive video tutorial library to help you reference important information as needed.
