Fine-tuned WordPress build process
We understand it’s not just about a website, it’s about your business.
That’s why we get to know you and your broader business objectives first. We then underpin this with our solid and proven project management methodology, developed from our experience on hundreds of WordPress builds (we’ve been doing this since 2008!).
After years of refinement our WordPress design, development and launch production process delivers success!
We get to know you, your business and your objectives for the website.
A live, clickable prototype built right within WordPress, so you can interact with the site.
The exciting bit! We launch your new site on our secure world class hosting platform.
The detailed scope where we document the project, our solution and a fixed price commitment.
We take your content, imagery and other media and build the website around these elements.
Understanding your project
We write a detailed scope of work for each project we are engaged for.
Talk to many web developers about their pet grievances and quickly they will say the words “scope creep”. The key reason why this happens is that a project has begun without sufficiently outlining what is included in the project and what is not.
A good scope of work is good for both client and developer. We run our projects with very clearly set out stages, each finishing by our client signing off on the work.
When working on a project we prototype our ideas, live in WordPress.
We will generate ideas and demonstrate them to you in a live, clickable environment. Often we’ll first demonstrate home page concepts for approval before prototyping each of the website interfaces. Doing it this way makes it easy for our clients to see what the website will look like but also how it will interact with an end user. Want to see how the site will look on a mobile phone, just open the prototype on a phone and see for yourself.
When layout and functionality are finalised, we’ll then firm up the rest of the design through to a finished product.
Content & website build
For many of our projects our clients provide content for the site; think words, images and other media. We’ll provide a brief for the delivery of this material and timeframes for its delivery so that the project can keep moving forward.
In other cases we use our copywriters to work up content for a project, or engage with a photographer to capture imagery. Either way we help our clients gather the materials we need to put the site together.
Moving toward launch
Once the site is approved, we’ll schedule our launch process to get your new WordPress site online.
We take care of everything; DNS, redirecting old URLs, migrating content etc... The site will be setup with Google analytics and search console connections, migrated into our production WordPress hosting environment and set loose on the world!
