Before we start any project, we must first understand what it is you are trying to achieve through having a new website. This background research will help us to give you an accurate proposal and will inform how much investment will be required.
To achieve this we will have a meeting either at your premises in Melbourne or via a video call where we will chat about your business to understand your goals and objectives, what your business does, and who are the users we want to try and appeal to.
From here we will go away and put together a project proposal that includes information on various aspects of the project, this will include details about how many custom templates will be provided to facilitate the website's functionality, what additional plugins may be required outside of our standard set, and also the investment required for the project.
Once the website project proposal has been signed off on we will then put together a sitemap.
A sitemap is a diagram that is laid out in a hierarchal structure. It outlines what pages will be included on the website and where they will sit in relation to other pages.
Once the sitemap has been agreed, we will then move onto creating wireframes for each of the templates that will have been defined in the project proposal. A wireframe is a basic outline of what will be included on each template and allows us to ensure that all functionality has been achieved. We create wireframes before moving onto high fidelity prototypes as they allow us to work without the distraction of colour, fonts and other decorative website elements.
Once the website planning phase has been complete, we will move onto the WordPress Web design process by creating two high fidelity prototypes for your homepage. A prototype is a static design that will represent what your website will look like once it has been developed.
By providing you with a couple of creative design directions we hope that one of them will be something that captures your interest. We provide a couple of rounds of refinement to allow you to provide feedback and get to a point where both yourselves and Bluesight Studio are happy to proceed.
Once the homepage template design has been signed off, we will then apply the same styling to the remaining number of templates outlined in the project proposal, these usually include at least the following; Contact Page, Blog Archive, Blog Post, Core Template. Other templates are likely necessary and will be added to meet your websites needs. We provide an opportunity to give feedback on all templates before they go into development.
Now that all the designs for your website have been agreed upon, it is time to take those static designs and turn them into a fully functioning WordPress Website.
This is a process known as development, it requires the use of 3 main coding languages (HTML, CSS & JS). The development process usually takes around 3-4 weeks depending on how many templates are requires and how complex the website designs are.
While the website development takes place, this is a great opportunity for you to start putting your content together and planning where all your copy, images and other media files will be shown on the website.
Content creation and copywriting can either be done by yourself or Bluesight Studio have a network of Photographers, Copywriters and other creators who can provide their services for an additional fee.
After the website development process and the content creation has been complete, we will begin to take all the content provided and start to upload it into the website. While we upload the content we will also be checking to see if there are any bugs or glitches that arise and will ensure these issues are resolved to ensure your new WordPress website looks slick and functions smoothly. Once we are happy with the website we will then send a link to you allowing you access to the development site so you can perform your own internal testing and report back. You can also let us know if you want any of the content tweaked.
Once you are 100% happy with your new website, we will then perform the process of redirecting your old site to the new version. We only do this early on in the working week, this ensures that if there are any issues with the site after launch we are available to fix any mishaps, this safeguards your brand image and ensures that no business is lost on your end.
Either just prior or after the website launch, we will provide you with a training session via a video call. This session will run through the backend controls of your WordPress website and gives you the freedom to edit content and add new pages without the need to come to us. Although if you are ever uncomfortable with editing your website, we are more than happy to lend a helping hand.
As standard we provide 2 months of free support post launch to give you peace of mind if anything arises that should not, we are on hand to provide our expertise. We also provide support retainers that are billed annually.
