There are a series of steps or stages
in the process of developing a web site.
Initial consultation: we discuss
your ideas, including color palette, collateral (logos
and other preexisting marketing materials), and the
overall look and feel of your site.
Comps: when the first round
of designing is done, you'll be directed to a url where
you can see one or several comp(s) of your web site.
A comp is basically a large graphic: it looks the way
your finished site will look, but has no functionality.
Revision of comps: you have
a chance to revise the design, and suggest alterations,
Html build-out: when you're
satisfied with the design, you sign off and we cut it
up and build it out into a web site, including any rollovers
or animation included in the design.
Programming: if your site requires
advanced programming (e.g., a database driven shopping
cart, a chat room, a bulletin board), the programmers
will install those functions.
Launch: when the site has been
tested and reviewed, we upload your site to your domain
and you are live!
Marketing: for clients who
wish, we can provide banners, pop-ups and other marketing
materials; we can also refer you to experts in search
engine ranking optimization.
Maintenance: once your site
is complete, we're available either on retainer or for
an hourly fee for ongoing maintenance.
