Step 2 - Design

With assets in hand, we get to work designing your website. Based on info gathered during the discovery phase, we consider fonts, colors, content, templates etc. to find that perfect combination. In addition, we tend to the technical items such as the custom web address, social media and admin access.

Step 3 - Presentation

Time for the the big reveal! We will provide a personal walk through, page by page, presenting our design, direction, and functionality choices. More importantly, we want to hear from you. During this phase, your feedback will dictate the outcome for launch day. Hence, we want you to take a day. With a private link, you will be able to view and share the full site to gain the necessary feedback from your stakeholders.

Step 4 - Launch

After the final sign-off, it is time to prepare for launch. Before we hit the switch, you will need a little training. A thorough, but concise lesson plan will give you the basics of editing menus, images, general text, analytics, and if appropriate, commerce/inventory management. Upon completion of the training, we will officially hand over the keys and make the site live to the public. 

 

Post Launch

We will give you a few days and a few visitors before we contact you regarding any issues, concerns or questions. You have a built-in support period that allows us to make minor edits if you happen to make a mistake or forget how to complete a task, we are simply here get you through the pains of learning something new.
