Each step from design to going live
Below are the exact steps taken to get your site up and running online. To goal is to make this a smooth process and to ensure we stay on schedule and budget.
I’ll ask the right questions about the site you designed and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve. Some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable because I want to learn how you work and communicate and what your expectations are when working with your web developer.
This may or may not be necessary because you may have already built one when you were designing the site. But If you haven’t, I’ll build a visual sitemap so we can see, visually, the flow of information on your site. On small sites this step can be skipped. Here’s an example of a completed site map.
At this point I build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how the site will work. With very little attention to design (the prototype is in black and white) at this stage it gets us close and gives you an opportunity to see your layout on the web and how it flows. It will reveal if the UX/UI needs to be tweaked. If not…
Finally, I get to building the site and making sure all of the functionality of the site is working as planned, and then tested. Once the site has been put through it’s paces it is transferred to the client’s hosting service and is ready to be presented to the world.
Care and maintenance
Now that the site is complete the work doesn’t stop. Websites need to be taken care of and updated regularly. I am invested in the continued success of each site I build and want to make sure your site performs as expected well into the future. Please refer to my service care plans here.
