WEB DEVELOPMENT CHESHIRE
Do you need a website or are thinking of a redesign?
The first question I ask is Why ? People want a new website for different reasons and quite often the reason they give me at the beginning is actually not the end goal. Which is why we have a very clear process so that we have clarity on your needs and business goals.
In addition, we don’t want you to feel over whelmed and that you need to understand the technology. You really don’t. After all we don’t all understand the work that goes into a car service or MOT, we just have confidence that the stuff under the hood is done and the car runs smoothly. A website or an SEO service is just the same.
Our Step by Step Web Development Process
Step 1 – PROJECT ENQUIRY
Simply complete the online project enquiry form (link at bottom of this page) this will give us a heads up about your business needs and how we can help. Include as much information as you can as this will also help in our initial meeting. Alternatively book a quick call in the calendar on the Contact Page.
STEP 2 – STRATEGY CALL
Once we have received your project enquiry form or had a quick call and we know we can help you, we will schedule an initial meeting to capture all the information needed to prepare a proposal.
STEP 3 – PROPOSAL
We will prepare a proposal including a Business Snapshot and and your high level business goals, deliverables, timescales & investment needed. The proposal will require your approval and a deposit paid.
STEP 4 – PLANNING SESSION
I n this session we will get into the detail, for example how much help you need to prepare content, do you need a logo, have you got professional photographs ready to go and access to your website domain etc.
STEP 5 – COMPETITOR ANALYSIS
At this stage we will run some Google ranking reports so that we understand who your competitors are online and who you think are your competition.
STEP 6 – SITEMAP
Once we have all the information we will create a plan and build a visual sitemap for the new website so that you can see the website structure easily and can provide any feedback.
STEP 7 – KEYWORD RESEARCH
Keyword research is essential for any website project so that Google knows what you do and what you sell and can match your website with the customer search queries in Google. We include keyword research in each project.
STEP 8 – COPYWRITING and CONTENT
At this stage we will need your written content. We use our keyword research to refine your written content. All our projects include some copywriting resource to ensure the copy is engaging and is written well for the search engines too. If you need a full copywriting service we can build that into your project.
STEP 9 – DESIGN
We will build a mock up of the proposed home page. This is the fun part where we will add design elements including your logo, imagery, fonts and any other graphics to the website
STEP 10 – WEBSITE BUILD
We will go a little quiet at this stage and complete the website build. We will batch up a round of revisions with you at this stage. Your approval is required before we go live.
STEP 11 – TECHNICAL SEO
At this stage we will work through the Technical SEO and on site SEO action items which will ensure Google can crawl your site so that it can appear within the Google index and search results.
STEP 12 – WEBSITE IS LIVE
Your website is moved to the live server and is visible to the world !
STEP 13 – CARE PLAN ONBOARDING
Once your website is live we decide what next steps are right for you and your business and which Care Plan or Growth Plan is the best fit to continue to support you as your business evolves.
