what we do
When designing and building a Website, we always start with a dialog with our Client. It basically boils down to one question –
What do you need your Website to be for your business?
When we first meet with a new Web Design Client, we have a lot of questions. These questions are designed to not only figure out your personal style preferences, but also to get to the heart of what it is you need your Website to be for your business. To be more specific, we need to know about your Customers or Website visitors and what they expect out of your Website.
Here are some questions you can expect to be asked:
Once we know our Clients’ needs for their Website Design, we have a bit of researching to do. This is where we put together a plan of action based on your customer profile, your competition and what you need to accomplish. We look at what works in your specific niche, and we even look at what others are doing wrong, and see where we can succeed where others have failed.
We also decide what technologies make sense for your Website and make a plan for how to include them into the Web Design.
Once we have gathered all the necessary information, we can begin giving your Website its structure. We do this in a process called wireframing. The goal of wireframing is to determine the overall organization, page hierarchy and linking structure.
We analyze your unique needs, and we implement accepted best practices to ensure that your Website Design has a consistent and logical flow. This is a critical step. It is in the planning phase where the usability of the Website is designed.
This is where we take the organization from the previous step and make it come to life in a visually appealing way.
We start by designing the Homepage. It is a logical first step, since the Homepage is almost always the first impression your Site will make on your customers. It is here that we determine the color scheme, fonts and overall style that will carry across the Site as a whole.
Once we have the Homepage designed, we present it to our Client for approval. Since the Web Design process is a collaborative one, we welcome feedback from our clients as we hone in on the final design. Most Websites go through an evolution during this process as we gather this feedback and use it to improve the overall design to meet our Clients’ needs. Throughout the development process, you will have access to our Testing Server to view progress and provide feedback. Once the Homepage is locked in and signed off on by our Client, we can begin the Web Design of the entire Site.
This where everything comes together and the real magic happens. Creative design meets the most up-to-date technology when our development team brings our designs to life. Now is when we get to implement all the functionalities that we have planned from the discovery phase and see them in action. As in the previous step, you will have access to our Testing Server to view progress and provide feedback.
Once the development is finished to our standards, we then put it through its paces and test in all of the major Web Browsers to ensure that it will work for your customers.
It's time to go live and unleash your Website to the world!
Once final approval is provided by our Client, it is then transferred to either the Clients' own Web Hosting Provider or placed on NetGain's Web Hosting Platform.
Our Deployment Strategy includes another round of testing as well as submitting your Website to the Major Search Engines, ( SEO-Internet Marketing ) ensuring your Website gets noticed as quickly as possible.
