Building your new website…
By this point we will have gone through your requirements and created a spec which you have agreed. We will also have worked closely with you throughout the design process to produce a template and layout that you are happy with. We will have started to pull together imagery, logos and content and agreed on a page structure.
Now it’s time to start putting all these things in place, this is the most exciting part of the process as you start to see your new website come to life. All of your hard work is now physically available on the web (don’t worry, it only has to be hard work if you want it to …we can manage all of the content images and design for you along with the build, allowing you to concentrate on your normal day-to-day tasks if you so wish).
We will start building any functionality that you might require such as image sliders, contact forms and anything else you have outlined in your requirements. We will keep you updated throughout the build process and of course you are able to make any tweaks if you like. You can check the progress of the build at any time via a link that we will supply you with (whilst being developed it will remain on our server).
Finally, when everything is completed we will have a period of testing. We will test your website on various different browsers such as Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox. We will also test it on popular mobile phones and tablets. We will test any contact forms and other functionality too, making sure you are able to receive communications from your new website.
When you are happy and we are ready we will move the site over to your domain and do the final ‘go-live’ tasks such as: Setting up Google Analytics (if required), setting up Google Webmaster Tools and submitting your sitemap.xml file to Google so it can be indexed. We will also generate a robots.txt file which tell the search engines that it is now ok to crawl and index your website.
If you have asked us to setup any advertising campaigns for you we will now put these in place to start driving traffic to your website.
Your website will now be live! All that you need to do now is ‘Maintain your website’.
