How it works

We've put together a straightforward guide of our five-stage process so that you'll know each and every step that we take along the way in making your project a wild success.

A Client's Guide to the 5 Stages of Development

Having a website designed or developed, no matter how big or small, can often be stressful for the client. That's why we want to be very clear about the steps that we take in making your project the success that it was destined to be. At each and every step, we'll ensure that we keep a fluid communication between us open so that at any time, you will not only know exactly what's going on, but be able to reach out to us at your convenience.

Stage 1: Preparation

The very first stage is where we'll be able to collect some things that we need to get started working on the project. During this stage, we'll be doing a lot of research and writing.

  1. Researching your industry

  2. Researching your competitors, if any

  3. Writing a Project Summary and Scope of Work

  4. Meeting and greeting all collaborators

Stage 2: Kickoff

The kickoff of the project is the official starting point, that is, the point at which actual coding work and designs are planned and initialized.

  1. Creating sitemaps and wireframes to make sure we nail the design and flow

  2. Obtaining all media and legal content to be used on the site

  3. Allocating time for any 3rd-party photographers or video productions, if needed

  4. Getting full approval before moving on to the next stage

Stage 3: Development

The development stage is the part of the process where we begin to put all of the coded parts together as one and make sure that they are optimally functional, efficient, and beautiful.

  1. Set up live hosting

  2. Install and configure any CMS (content management system) used

  3. Create and integrate any databases used

  4. Getting full approval before moving on to the next stage

Stage 4: Quality Assurance

A very critical part of the process, the quality assurance stage is where we'll be working to check every single aspect of the site to make sure that everything is running optimally.

  1. Code quality checks, cleanliness, and minimizations

  2. Global-readiness, speediness, and SEO ready

  3. Responsive and looks good on PCs, tablets, and phones

  4. Getting full approval before moving on to the next stage

Stage 5: Launch

We've made it! Your site is now ready to go live. At first, it will stay in beta to ensure no problems arise later. Beta usually lasts only about a month.

  1. Launch the live site

  2. Implement Google Analytics

  3. Turn over all source files to you, the client

  4. Celebrate the current and future success of your site!
