Plans

STEP ONE: PLAN

All too often, people think getting started on a website design before they have their ducks in a row is going to save time and put them ahead of schedule. It doesn’t. In fact, it does the opposite.

Jumping the gun ultimately creates delay because you have to backtrack to correct wrong turns. It creates duplication of effort and confusion. Plus, the end result is less than ideal because too much work goes into damage control, rather than optimizing the value you get from being organized and working from a solid plan.

So what goes into planning a website? Some aspects vary depending on the size, scope and objectives of the website, but for the sake of a general view, the following actions are must-haves for a solid website plan.

STEP TWO: DESIGN

When people think of design, they think of visual design or user interface design (UI). They think colour, fonts, images and placement — the visual aesthetics and composition. But there’s a lot more that goes into designing a website that you don’t necessarily see.

The website design process actually begins with what is called User Experience Design, or UX. There are many detailed definitions of UX but for our purposes here, the simple explanation is that UX blends marketing, content, user needs, technical requirements and design.

Built upon a sound UX strategy, the design process continues with wireframing, and finally the user and visual design of the website. We generally give two to three options of the latter and then prepare the final files for the chosen design.

STEP THREE: BUILD

In our shop, WordPress is our chosen Content Management System (CMS) for informational websites. It’s an open-source CMS with the largest community of developers that contribute to its ongoing evolution. Our clients love its ease of use for editing as well as the comfort in knowing that their website is generally extendable for future expansion.

The build stage is where the magic happens and the carefully-laid plans and designs are brought to life. This where we add the functionality and content and tie it all together and make it live on the word wide web.

LAUNCH!

While your website is being launched, it is going to be closely monitored as it propagates through the world-wide web. Small tweaks and adjustments may still be required to ensure a smooth transition. Nevertheless, it’s time to celebrate! Creating a website can be a work-intensive process but one with infinite rewards for your business or organization.

AFTER LAUNCH: If WE BUILD IT, WILL THEY COME?

It’s important to understand that the launch of your website is only the beginning of its lifecycle. People have to find it. It has to accomplish a number of objectives and earn its keep on an ongoing basis.

Even if you were meticulous in the planning stage and have included the right content and keywords, etc, there’s still no resting on laurels. The next job right after launch is to closely monitor how well your website is doing and make the necessary adjustments and content additions to keep it fresh, relevant and useful to your audience. This is an ongoing process of SEO optimization, content generation and feature growth that is crucial your website continues to mature and grow with your needs.
