Our Process

These are the steps we take from our initial meeting to your website going "live"

Discovery & Consultation

Part of the Discovery process is finding out more about your business, it's needs and the goals you have for your website. We also like to find out a bit more about the kind of audience you expect and what you want them to do when they get onto your website.

The Sitemap

Here we put together a high level overview of the site structure and how everything will fit together. This helps you to see what content will be needed for which sections so you can start to get that together.


We like to develop your site on a staging server to make sure we get it perfect before we migrate this to your live domain. At this point we install a vanilla version of WordPress and get it ready for the design element. This allows you to interact with the elements as they are developed going forward.


Now we bring in the components of your brand and corporate identity, plus your photographs and other supplied content to bring the prototype to life. Here we can test desired functionality and flow of all the elements you require for your site.


Once all the content is loaded, functionality is tested and various design elements are complete we do a final check on all your keywords and images to ensure your site is optimised,  search engine friendly and mobile responsive on all devices.

Delivery & Handover

We migrate the staging site to your actual domain and update all the links. You are provided with all your logins and any other material you have purchased, plus 30 days of free support. We then recommend you move onto one of our Care Plans going forward.
