The following provides an overview of the general approach I take when building a site.
This package is for those people who want a professional looking site with a quick turnaround time. A pre-built theme will be used as the framework, and only essential planning is carried out, and then we move straight on to the Build phase.
For those with a bit more time and money to spend on crafting a site to cater for your needs, you can benefit from consultative design process, prototyping, and user analysis. The only constraints come from using a pre-built theme, but you then benefiting from reduced costs and faster turnaround time.
For those who have the time and the budget, you can have a site designed to your exact specifications and needs.
Unfortunately, ‘build it and they shall come’ doesn’t apply to the Worldwide Web. So, once you build your website you need to ensure your target audiences know you exist. One of the ways you can achieve this through improved performance within search engines, which requires Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) measures to be carried out to your site.
The following packages offer ways of optimising your site, and thereby improving your performance within search engines. The Intermediate and Advanced SEO packages will also speed up your site, and therefore improve user experience – especially for those using a mobile device on a data network.
