Website Design and Build Process
At Kitchen Table Web Design we follow a structured website design and build process. This enables us to deliver more successful websites faster and more efficiently.
Book a Discovery Call
We need to get to know you and what you want to achieve to plan and build the best possible website. The first step is to book a call with us.
In this initial discovery call, we will briefly chat about your project and explain what we can do for you. Usually, this is a short call to decide whether we are a good fit for each other. Depending on the size and scope of your project, we may book a further meeting either in person or over Zoom.
We will then do some research about what is required for your project. We will also want to find out about your website's current performance. We may do some data analysis from your Google Analytics, SEO, and competitors. After this initial research, we will provide you with a proposal.
For some more extensive projects, we may schedule a meeting with you to report on our initial research and further explore the scope of the project. This meeting and further research may incur a fee. We will always let you know in advance of any charges.
Web Design and Content
Once you have accepted our proposal and paid the required deposit, we begin!
Depending on the project, this will including such things as
- content strategy and structure
- style guide - the colours and typography
- user-experience/user profiles/customer journeys Content Gathering
- module creation, including call-to-action blocks, hero images, information blocks
- creating the website pages and templates
The Project - Web development
This part of our process often happens concurrently with Step 3. Here we work on any functionality and integration requirements so that the website functions as it should and works well for you and your customers.
We will do testing with you to make sure the website works as it should and is user friendly across a range of devices.
During this stage, we will provide you will any required documentation. This can include custom videos so you can do such things as add content, manage your eCommerce website, or any other tasks you require.
We will move the website live.
We will ensure analytics are in place and that your site is submitted to the google search console. It is also time to re-test forms, the shopping cart, and your functionality to ensure everything is working as it should.
We recommend that all our clients take at least a basic website care plan to protect their investment in their website.
We offer ongoing plans for marketing, including SEO, content strategy and performance. With consistent effort and attention, your website can continue to improve and deliver even better returns in terms of leads and sales — let us work with you to achieve that.
