It’s really important that you understand our process so that you become accustom and comfortable with our ways of working. We like to be completely transparent, so sharing every step of our design process is of upmost importance. After all, we want you to be involved with every step of the design journey. All work at Designbury is carried out by our specialist team of highly qualified designers and is never outsourced. Below is a step by step guide of our design process which we hope will answer any questions you may have, however if you’d like to discuss the process in more detail please get in touch and one of our team will gladly guide you through it.
Take a look online or get in touch with us so we can discuss our different packages, and work out which one will suit your requirements best. We’ll then provide a quote and answer any questions that you may have. Please note: We require an upfront cost of 50% with the remaining balance due when the job is completed. We accept PayPal and bank transfers. As always your first year hosting with us is completely free!
Once we have worked out which package is best suited to your requirements, we will ask you to complete a short design questionnaire. This helps us to fully understand what you want so we can start designing on the right track. We always take into consideration current design trends and what we know works well from a marketing perspective. This stage is all about understanding what you want so we can use our design and marketing experience to give you the results you want.
We will then begin to create a design and continue to work with you with unlimited reviews until you are happy to sign it off. We please and proud to offer unlimited revisions until sign off as it is so important to us that we provide you with a design that you are happy with. Please note: Once the design is approved, any future design changes may incur an additional charge.
Once the design is agreed we will build your website. This involves taking the agreed design and coding it so that it works across all different devices and screen sizes. We never create websites that aren’t responsive. This means it can be viewed across mobile and tablet devices as well as laptop and desktops without compromising on quality. At this stage you will also need to supply the text content for every page and if you require an ecommerce website and do not require us to manage your site in the future, we will show you how to add categories and products to the website.
When the website is ready it’s time for that all important, champagne-popping moment - we will put it live! If you already own your domain name then we will work through the different options to recommend the best domain configuration for your project. If you don’t own your domain name we will work with you to get you the right domain for your business. Regardless of if it is a new domain or an existing domain we will also let Google know to re-index the website starting its journey towards your audience.
Just because we’ve popped the champagne doesn’t mean we’re waving you off into the sunset. For a lot of clients this is where our job working with you really starts. The Designbury team are here to support you as much or as little as you require. If you need any updates that you can’t or don’t want to do through the CMS we will always be available to support you and do them under our hourly support charge. We also offer SEO services where we try and make your website rank better for agreed phrases in Google. As your business continues to grow and change we are on hand when you need us. That is the Designbury promise.
