BRANDING, IDENTITY AND THE 3 PHASE DESIGN PROCESS

We work alongside you from concept to completion using our three phase design process of review & revise. We like to remain flexible, but aim toward a method we have formulated over the years that we think best serves everybody involved in the design process.
We will work with any ideas that you may have for the design of your website. Please contact us to discuss using the Contact Form, or our fill in as much as you like of our Website Brief, to help define your requirements & objectives, alternatively feel free to call us on (+44) 0745 333 6400 to discuss

PHASE 1 - CAREFUL CONSIDERATION AND CLEAR COMMUNICATIONS! OVERALL DESIGN LAYOUT & NAVIGATION/MENU SYSTEM

In phase 1 of our the website design process, reviewing the first design draft is the time to look closely on the initial development result of yours & our ideas combined. Then point out things that you absolutely do not like, things that you want to keep as part of the finished design & to tell us of any changes you would like us to consider & make if possible. We have found this to be a crucial point in the design process. Complete 'back to the drawing board' decisions are made here in Phase 1 where they will not incur you extra charges, before moving onto Phase 2 which we do on your go-ahead.

PHASE 2 - REVIEW AND REVISE - MINOR ADJUSTMENTS & ALTERATIONS, REFINING GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS WITHIN LAYOUT

In Phase 2, on receiving your feedback, we make any adjustments and alterations we have discussed to the agreed overall design, for you to review again, (on the unlikely event that there are more minor adjustments we can slip in a phase 2.5) Here is the best time to be sure that we have achieved a design and navigation/menu system that you are happy with and on your approval, we then move onto Phase 3.

PHASE 3 - REFINE AND COMPLETE

We will at this stage, have reached the design that you are happy with. Now we continue with further development, refinement & testing until your new website is ready to launch.
A new website, whether it's an online initiation or a redesign, even if your previous website was working well, only helps keep people interested & provides the opportunity for a launch, which can be synchronized with a special incentive to existing & potential clients to come on board. We will advise on this.

TECH TALK

We prefer to create our websites using Joomla because of it's bespoke design potential and the abundance of applications, features and upgrades that are developed to integrate with the Joomla infrastructure. Joomla developers have there finger on the pulse. Our websites are what are called data driven websites, a data driven website uses data from a database to dynamically assemble web pages using live data from a database and uses a database management system called My SQL. Data base driven websites such as this are dynamic and allow for live, real time interactivity and great content management systems for both behind the scenes developers such as us and front-end managers such as you the website owner.

GOOGLE 'STANDARD SEARCH ADS'

Google Adwords has several ways to advertise on their system, one is the “Standard Search Ads” where your text advert shows either at the top of the search results page if you are within the top three bidders or otherwise it appears in the right hand column of the search results page on page 1, 2, 3 etc depending on how competitive your bid price is. Your ad appears when someone has searched for a key phrase that you are bidding on within the parameters of the campaign settings established within the Google Ad Campaign system.
For us it involves research, analysis and a monthly budget, (decided and paid by you into your Google account) and spent according to the bids placed on the specific keywords and phrases chosen from the research. Money is automatically deducted by Google when your ad is clicked on and Campaigns work around a daily budget, serving up your ads until your daily budget has been used, then stop showing them until the next day.

MAINTENANCE

Website maintenance is a critical part of your online success, from both a security standpoint and maintaining a cutting edge image of professionalism.
Data driven website systems such as Joomla run various dynamic data reading 3rd party modules, plugins and applications within them, these are being continuously improved by the developers who send these advancements to web developers (like us) to apply to the websites they build -to keep your site ship-shape and running smoothly.
The same goes for security; hackers are marauding the internet looking for vulnerabilities. Developers of web infrastructure have to inevitably stay one step ahead by creating 'reinforcements' (almost daily sometimes) to keep these hackers, or automated hacking systems, locked out. We in turn are provided with these 'patches' or updates, that we then apply to the websites we build, keeping it safe and secure.
All of our packages take care of this most basic of essential security and software maintenance. After that your individual graphical and management requirements can be added to create a bespoke maintenance programme.
