Website Design Process
From first contact, to the end and beyond
It is all well and good purchasing a website from a company, but do you know the website design process involved?
How long will it take?
What happens if I don’t like my site?
Do I need to do anything?
All of these questions are what I have been asked before.
So here is the completed website design process for Quillations Affordable Website Designs.
Step 1: Consultation
Making sure we know what you require
After the initial contact form has been sent to us, Quillations will send out a simple questionnaire to fill in.
This way we can find out all about how your business works, what you want to achieve, and what it is you actually do!
Our understanding of your business helps us build a picture of what will work well for you.
After all, it is your business which a website showcases!
If we know nothing about what it is you actually do, then how would we know what your website should do!
Step 2: Keyword Research
Getting your SEO sorted before we start anything else
Once we have an understanding of your business, we use this information to find the best keyword(s) for your website.
We search your closet competitors, see what they are using, and work from this.
We can never guarantee Page 1 on Google, and hate any company that says they can.
What Quillations tries to achieve for you, is the “best, low competition, average searches per Month” type of Keyword.
This way, it will help you get your website up and running with a keyword we know people search for, but not many use for their own SEO.
Step 3: Website Building
Getting down to business
Once we have the relevant information and Keyword(s) we will be using, Quillations next website design process is actually designing your website!
Once payment has been received (either Deposit or 1st Monthly Payment), we start by producing a basic layout to see where everything fits.
It is then that we check your layout on Mobile and Tablet.
It is highly important that everything works well on these devices, as this is what the majority of your customers will use to find you.
After this, we add the relevant text followed by the relevant images.
Step 4: Bringing The Site Together
Cross the I's and dot the T's
As soon as the basic layout is sorted, the finishing touches are applied.
This ranges from positioning of elements, to picture editing.
This stage essentially brings everything together to become the finished website.
This is where we run our checks, to ensure everything will work and function correctly once the website is live.
Step 5: Viewing
Take a look at your new website
As soon as we have your website built, the next step of our website design process is to show you!
Once the Second Invoice has been settled, we will be able to send you a Live Link to your website.
We ask you to check every detail of your website over.
From the wording to the images, and the functionality of it all.
It is important that you check every detail, as this is when you can ask us to change things.
Step 6: Editing / Making Your Website Live
To change or not to change - that is the question
Should you have anything which requires editing, then we will complete this for you.
Once everything has been changed to your satisfaction*, then Quillations will send you your Final Invoice. **
As soon as this has been settled, your website will be made Live on the Internet.
*Quillations allows as many changes as you need, to make sure the website is right for you and your business.
** Unless paying Monthly
Step 7: Monitoring
Checking everything is fine
Once your website is live, our website design process does not stop!
Quillations will monitor your website for a few weeks, to ensure Speed, Software, and Analytics are all up to date.
If you have paid for our Maintenance Package, then we will complete everything required on the 1st of each Month, and send you an email.
We are always here, so if our customers ever need advice, then we are only an email away!
