The Process

Phase 1: Planning

Planning is key to any successful project. It will serve as a guide for the rest of the process.

It’s Important for me to get to know you and your business. We’ll hop on a strategy call to talk specifically about your project needs, expectations and business objectives.

Later you’ll receive a proposal document with strategic detail and scale of the project to accurately estimate the budget requirements.

The planning phase of the process includes:

  • Project Description
  • Project Goals
  • Target Audience
  • Deliverables
  • Timelines
  • Hosting
  • Budget
  • Additional Services (If Required)

Phase 2: Organize

Now that I know your business objectives and requirements, I’ll ask you to gather the content for your site so it’s all ready to go.

  • Collect all content – page design layouts, text copy, graphics, videos, logos, brand identity guidelines
  • Determine fonts to be used on the website
  • Determine primary and secondary colours
  • Outline additional technical requirements

Phase 3: Build

In this stage, I will build a site. You will have to provide me with feedback, content and anything that might be required to build a successful website.

We’ll hop on one final call to go over the live website and make changes if needed. I’ll also show you how to navigate your WordPress dashboard and update your site.

Here are the tasks i go through while building a website:

  • Create the fully-functional HTML5 templates (built on WordPress CMS)
  • Create page layouts, add content, including text, graphics, images etc
  • Build any customizations, CSS design, image galleries, adding any plugins etc
  • Design special functionality/unique page elements required
  • Show the functional website to the client for revision
  • Revise until completed (2 rounds of revisions included)
  • Optimize website for on-page SEO best practices
  • Test for bugs in various browsers, mobile devices and screen resolutions

Phase 4: Launch

After testing has been done, It’s time to celebrate the launch of your new website! In some instances, I might do a beta launch. This is the best practice when it comes to bigger websites like WooCommerce with a lot of functionality and users.

I will check if everything is working as expected. In case I need to modify or fix any issue – I will do that on a staging server and then I can upload it the changes to the live server.

Here are the additional tasks i complete before the launch:

  • Add Google Analytics tracking code to the website
  • Submit site to major search engines (Google and Bing)
  • Create Google My Business listing (appear on the map in search results)
  • Set up page-speed optimization settings (caching, CDN, etc.)
  • Launch website

You’ll have access to me via email/phone for support for a full month after your launch date.

Phase 5: Future Growth & Maintenance

Some business owners don’t want, have time or experience to do hectic maintenance and other tasks on their own.

If that’s the case and you need further help, updates, or maintenance, you can book a WordPress care plans or pay for support on a one-time hourly basis.
