We have a refined method to help you reach your goals.
There are many trails, paths, and appropriate shortcuts you can take to reach those goals. We'll be your guide along the way.
The Custom Site Path
Your business may fall outside of the "pamphlet site" model. You shouldn't have to conform the way you do business around a website template. For this, we offer a professional and custom plan to build a site around how you operate.
If you're not sure the best fit for you, give us a call. We'll walk you through each option and how it could affect and grow your business or non-profit.
Before we begin our partnership, we’ll discover what success means for you.
We’ll discover what requirements are needed to reach your goals. (in corporate-speak: KPI, ROI, CPL, etc.)

2. Strategic Kick-Off
Once we’ve defined your goals, we’ll set up a strategy meeting. This could range from an in-depth phone call to a multi-day discovery workshop and teambuilding seminar.
This kick-off meeting is a deep dive into you and your teams’ current pain points, your goals, and your design ambitions.
3. User Flow & Sitemap
After understanding the goals of the new site, we’ll build out a high-level sitemap and user flow journey to meet these goals.
We’ll also take the findings of the design discovery to give you mood board options to choose the look, feel, and design direction of your new site.
4. Wireframes & Designs
We will take these user flows and put them to paper, creating an idea of how the user journey can look. These wireframes are very rough sketches to to identify missing segments of your site.
Once we have a good idea of how the content will by laid out, the next step is high-fidelity designs. This is where we will create the visual representation of the website, with all the bells and whistles to bring the design together.
5. Develop & Theme
Once the visual look and feel of the site is approved, we will build your website with both the front end and the back end to best suit your needs. The site will perfectly match the approved designs, will be built accessibly, and responsively.
There are two finish lines in this phase: Developer done (when it's functional) and Designer done (when it looks good).
Throughout this phase, we put the site up on a staging url to gather feedback along the way!
6. Test & Launch
When the site is approved, we’re ready to test and launch. Together we'll squish any bugs in the functionality and make sure the site is a well-oiled machine.
We’ll then launch the site on our secure servers and make sure the site is totally search engine optimized!

There's also daily, weekly, and monthly backups along with ongoing security updates to keep your site safe and secure.
