We meet with you to discuss your business or organization and your communication goals.
We examine your previous communications, both in print and on the Web.
We discuss your objectives for the Web site and how the site will fit in with the rest of your communication efforts. Some of the issues to be determined is whether you can provide photos/graphics and text, or we will be writing copy and photography/graphics; whether you'll be doing updates or we will provide site maintenance; whether you already have a hosting service or you want us to provide one.
We go back to our office, put our heads together, and outline the type of Web site we think would be appropriate for your needs, along with a budget and a completion schedule. Once you've had a chance to review the Web site plan, we can discuss it over the phone or by Email. If need be, we'll make revisions. On a particularly complex job, we might schedule a second meeting.
If you accept the plan*, we'll work up some options for a draft design and post them on our server, so only you can review work in progress. Once the basic design has been approved,* we'll start preparing individual pages. As we work, we may edit copy, headings and keywords to facilitate listing position in major search engines.
Once you have approved the site, we'll arrange domain registration (if you do not already have a domain), secure a Web server (if you do not have one), and post the completed site.*
