Sierra Image Works has developed a standard procedure to ensure the maximum efficiency of the web design and development process from start to finish. Below is a brief overview of our process that is designed to help you to get a better feel for how we handle your project before, during, and after the completion.
Analyze your Project
The first step towards creating a successful online strategy for your company is an in depth analysis of your business objectives.
- Study of your organization goals and needs
- Current online presence performance analysis
- Study of targeted audience and their demographics
- Marketing Budget
In the second stage of our strategy planning process we work closely with you to produce a custom plan tailored to match your business needs and budget. The success of any web project depends on a clear assessment of both design and production priorities.
- Site Architecture and sitemap definition
- Page structuring and wireframes
- Functionality designation
- Content Management System (CMS) requirements
- SEO requirements
- Timeline scheduling
Our designer will create layouts for the identified earlier pages, keeping your branding and functionality requests in mind.
- Homepage design
- Interior pages design
- Revisions and layouts iterations
Development, Testing and Reviewing
- Macintosh: Safari 4+, Firefox 3.5+
- PC: Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3.5+, Chrome 5+
- iPhone and iPad
During this development phase we always focus on the coding of your website to maximize its SEO potential and allow Google, Bing and Yahoo to rank your site appropriately. Content Management System installation and testing is one of the main components of the development phase.
Launch and Follow up
In this last stage, after the final approval of all components and functionality of your website we move it to the final server location. If you are replacing an existing site we always back up your old data and make sure that the transition is seamless in order to prevent any downtime. If you are going to maintain the site in-house, a client-side support team is identified and trained. The site is registered with the major search engines and its performance is monitored closely.
