Modern & Effective Kalamazoo Web Design and Development Process
With over 10 years of experience, Captivating the Web has developed a process for Kalamazoo web design and development. We are confident that our process will give you optimal results by following our guidance. With your collaboration and our process, we will achieve great results as we work towards achieving your online digital marketing goals!
First in order to begin the website development project we make sure that we have everything we need from you. This includes your hosting details, your domain and your creative brief and all the requirements for the website.
Next we create an organizational chart of all the information for the website. We create a hierarchical and meaningful structure which makes it user friendly for website visitors, and easy for website owners to attract visitors by publishing their story.
Next we create a prototype or "proof of concept" in order to see how the website will work in the browser and to begin to visualize how users might interact with it. Once this step is finalized, we begin to design the website development interface.
The next step of the project is where we create our magic with special tools and turn your prototype and interface into a fully functioning and beautiful website. Because it is very technical to describe, we won't bore you with the details. During this process, a lot of time and attention to detail will pay off with a successful project that is ready to be displayed in the next step.
In this step we put test your new website with our pre-flight check and then launch it into cyber space so that the world can visit it on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones. Phew!
Once your website is launched, our process is not complete. In order for the search engines to see your website clearly and receive the right signals, we optimize your website with the 4 Pillars of SEO.
