“I want a website that gets results”
Today, the internet has become our main source information.
That’s why you want a website that people will visit and value.
We know about the mobile phone revolution, with half of today’s web searches being on mobiles.
Between mobiles and Google, traditional phone books and directories are becoming irrelevant.
(Right there is a promotional hot spot for a regional business – a Google-friendly website design with a commanding presence in the local area.)
You have specific requirements, so your website must add value to the things you already do.
The design process
There is a standard process that I follow, with some variations as every site is uniquely different.
First we create a map
The starting point is that you want a website that matches your business model, engages your customers, and fits with your visions for the future.
That means the website must address four things:
- be specifically customised for your business
- demonstrate your ideals about quality and service
- be focused on your audience
- add value to what you already do.
I follow an outcomes-based process to ensure you get the website you need. It includes a detailed analysis of your needs and goals and how they relate to your target audience.
And it’s a key part in ensuring an optimal website design.
Second: convert goals into a website
Your ideas, messages and images are transformed to the screen
A sitemap gives the visual guide to the website structure your goals and visions will require. From there, A quick on-screen prototype will be developed to demonstrate the design practicalities and test against our previous analysis.
This leads us into full design and development, the longest part of the process. I stay in contact to let you know about its progress.
Third: preparing for launch
The site’s technical features are tested and performance monitoring is set up. Content is added. You also receive training to ensure that you are comfortable with managing your site.
After running through a final checklist, the completed website is then ready for launch.
All the details are covered
When your site is being built, do you want to commit a large amount of time to providing web page content?
Full or partial support is provided, at any level you require, for
- setting up appropriate site content – text, images, or even video
- assisting you with internet marketing
- plans for getting visitors to your site
- the steps for your site to become prominent in Google searches.
You can expect that your website will be up and running without stress to you.
After hand over, you’re not on your own
And when it’s launched, you can be confident of help whenever it’s needed. Here’s what you get:
- training in the use of your site, so you can independently manage your site
- screen and print training materials you can use after
- 30 days free help desk support
- plans to further support you and maintain your site
- service to your premises if you are in the Latrobe Valley area.
Google search – Latrobe Valley
SEO – Search Engine Optimisation – is providing website features which will ensure that Google (and other search engines) give you highly favourable listings.
Done right, it’s invaluable.
A Latrobe Valley SEO focus, if you’re in this area, can help you market more effectively into other Valley towns.
Either way, an SEO package is added to website projects to give specific search engine results.
It’s included as another benefit to make sure that you get the site you need, the results you want, and the value you expect.
