We Use a Simple & Easy Workflow

We make sure that working with us is super easy. Here's a basic overview of our workflow and how you can expect a typical project to progress...

1) Initial Conversations

The first step is getting in touch with us. We'll have some discussions about your current situation, what your business is all about and what you need in a website. These conversations will also help us find out if we're a good fit for each other (we want a mutually beneficial relationship after all).

2) Contractual Agreement

Once we're both happy to work together and move forward we'll draw up some paperwork which both parties need to sign. The contract is simple and easy to understand.

3) Payment

We usually ask for 50% up front and 50% upon project completion (once your website is ready, but prior to going live to the public). We understand that budgets can be delicate, so we're open to some flexibility regarding payment arrangements.

[Week 1] Work Begins

We ask you to fill out some easy forms that we use to refer to moving forward. These forms help us gather specific information about what style of website you want, particular features you need, and generally give us all the information we require so that we can build the website of your dreams.

[Week 2] Website Draft Completed

We take your vision and information from previous discussions and use it to design and build your website. While this is going on behind the scenes we direct any visitors to an eye-catching "coming soon" page. 

[Week 3] First Round of Revisions

Once the core elements are in place we'll show you our work so far and you can provide direction on what changes/tweaks you'd like to see. We continue working on your site and incorporate changes based on your feedback.

[Week 4] Second Round of Revisions

Work continues and you can make another round of revisions if required. Even at these later stages there's still a lot of work going on behind the scenes outside of tasks related to your feedback.

[Week 5] Final Touches & Testing

We make any final changes based on your feedback and begin the testing process. Testing involves insuring that your website looks great on a wide range of devices (such as mobiles, tables, laptops and desktops). We also test it using a range of different browsers, such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc. 

[Week 6] Website Launch

Everything is looking good and working as intended. You're happy. We're happy. It's time to release your website into the wild. At this stage (once it's live) you'll be asked to begin paying your monthly hosting and maintenance fee. This covers everything that goes on behind the scenes to keep your site running smoothly including regular website backups, security monitoring, ongoing maintenance, and other tedious tasks you'd rather not deal with.

[Relax] We're Here for the Long Run

Once your site is up and running, we keep an eye on it every single day. We make sure that all ongoing maintenance tasks are completed, we make sure that it remains secure from bad guys, we make sure it runs smoothly and remains stable, and we'll run regular full backups of your website. It's all part of our amazing service!

That's basically the process in a nutshell. Keep in mind that these time-frames act as a guide only. Each project is different, with different requirements and varying complexity.

We're open to discussing this process within the context of your website needs, please get in touch if you'd like to talk about this.

    We never leave - once your website is live and running we're still here to keep an eye on things. If something breaks then we'll fix it, end of story.

  • Secure & Reliable

    You don't have to worry about security issues at all. Security and reliability are always key considerations for every build that we complete, plus we monitor your site in real-time so that we can quickly respond to any issues that may arise.

  • Ongoing Maintenance

    We are 100% responsible for the ongoing maintenance of your website. Software for websites is updated all the time (just like all software in general), and therefore it's essential to stay on top of ongoing maintenance tasks. We' do all of this for you, you never have to think about it.

  • Blogging Available

    Is having a blog important for your business? We can set this up for you.

  • SEO and Google Integration

    We integrate your website with our mighty internet overlords, Google. We follow industry best practices to ensure that Google is able to scan your website, understand the content on it, and therefore include your website in search results.

  • Google Analytics

    Full Google Analytics integration is included, meaning that you have access to all of your visitor statistics. 

  • Social Media Integration

  • MailChimp Integration

    We make it easy to grow your mail list. If you need to capture visitor emails and sign them up to your newsletter then we can set this up for you.

  • Solid CMS

    CMS stands for Content Management System, it's fancy-speak for having an administrator area behind the website that only you (and anyone else you nominate) has access to.

  • White Labelled

    Have you noticed that many small business websites have a note in the footer that reads something like 'Website made by Donkey Web Design'? Well, we think that's super cheesy and we would never do that.

Let our expert team take this hassle off your hands - we'll keep your website looking and functioning spick and span!

We'll regularly review your website and tend to all maintenance, including updating software as required and cleaning up junk files that accumulate over time.

We'll Regularly Backup Your Website

No matter what precautions website administrators take, there is always some element of risk involved.

We have great systems in place committed to running regular backups of all your website data and files.

We'll store these backups off-site in a secure cloud server.

This ensures that we have a solid contingency plan in place, so that in the rare event that something does go wrong we can roll-back to backed up data.
