8 STEPS EVERY WEB DESIGN PROCESS SHOULD INCLUDE

8 Steps Every Web Design Process Should Include

There are a lot of people out there that will build a website for you, but if they aren’t following this 8-step process, chances are the only deliverable you’ll receive is frustration. 

On the flip side, if you follow this 8-step process we’ve developed at Liberte Tech, you’ll find the process of designing and developing a website seamless, simple, and stress-free. 

STEP ONE - IT ALL STARTS WITH A CONSULTATION

It is important for you to interview your developers before you decide to work with them.  Make sure they are a good fit for you. Doing this will ensure that the client or even the company are a good fit for one another. Clarifying the scope and expectations up front is always best practice.

STEP TWO - THE BRAND INTERVIEW

Once we decide the client is a good fit, it is time to really start diving into who you are.  Most clients have not taken the time to think through who they are, what they stand for, their culture, their goals, their target market, and so on.  We help you think through everything, so you have a foundation to build a brand on. 

STEP THREE - BUILDING A BRAND

This is where the rubber meets the road.  We start putting together a complete brand kit that presents the visual identity of your business.  We will use this to help develop the site and you can use it for future marketing and branding endeavors.  It is a tool that keeps everyone on the same page, so your brand is not fragmented in the public eye.

STEP FOUR - THINK THROUGH THE WEBSITE

We do not just pick a template and call it a day.  We actually think through and strategize the format, layout, and flow of the website.  We are building it to not only look good but convert visitors into clients and buyers.  That does not just happen.  A good website comes from conversion-driven website strategy sessions. 

STEP FIVE - LET'S BUILD YOU A SHINY NEW WEBSITE!

This is where our coding and dev nerds really shine.  They take all of our plans and start bringing them to life.  We make it responsive, fast, and SEO optimized. 

STEP SIX - TESTING, TESTING, AND MORE TESTING

We are double, triple, and quadruple checking everything, so your site is absolutely perfect.  No broken forms, no broken links, none of that!  We make sure everything is completely functional and operating as planned. 

STEP SEVEN - IT'S TIME TO GO LIVE BABY!

Now that everything is absolutely perfect and on-brand, we are ready to launch.  Your site will be up and running like a champ.  It will look great on desktops, tablets, and phones.  

STEP EIGHT - WE ALWAYS HAVE YOUR BACK

We do not just build a website and leave our clients hanging out to dry.  We help you maintain your website and help with any technical problems for two weeks after the launch!  If you need any edits or small fixes, we are just a phone call or email away.  And after the two weeks, we have affordable ongoing support

FOLLOWING THESE STEPS WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY IN THE LONGRUN

A lot of clients think that just throwing together a quick website is all they need to do.  Yes, you can do that, but if you want high-quality web development and a site that converts, following these eight steps is the key to success. There’s no shortcut to quality services!
