Sigma 4's 7 Steps to a Successful Website
Initial Meeting - A new project begins with a 1-2 hour meeting to establish points of contact, goals and objectives, domain name requirements and project time lines.
Information Gathering and Production - Everything that can possibly go into the website is collected. Anything the client can provide in the form of photos, graphics, history, media kits and brochures is reviewed for use on the site. Additional information, photos or graphics are created as needed by working with the client. Desired site features are also identified.
Sample Designs Created - Using the information gathered in the prior steps, two or three sample designs are created for online review and approval by the client. Particular emphasis is made on a central theme that conveys the business image desired and easy of use. Loading speed and ability to be assessed from various devices such as computers, tablets and/or mobile phones is also reviewed as needed. Adjustments to the selected design are made based on client feedback.
Site Production - Using the design selected in Step 3 and the information gathered in Step 2 the website is produced and populated.
Site Testing and Approval - The produced and populated site is made available online in a limited access area for testing and review. Testing is conducted using various browsers to confirm a consistent look and functionality. Adjustments are made to the site as needed to obtain customer approval.
Site Upload and Activation - The finished site is uploaded to the server of choice and made accessible to the rest of the world. Email accounts and other site features are activated as required.
Site Promotion - The operational site is registered with the major search engines. Finally, Sigma 4 will also work with the client as needed to integrate the site into their existing sales & marketing plan to attract users to the site.
