Because we custom build websites our scoping process identifies key areas where we can build editing functions so you update independantly- even with WordPress!
We don’t hide our code under multiple layers of security, nor do we lockdown system foundations. We use open source platforms, and assign the source code to you on project completion. You have freedom to choose a new provider at any time- out retention strategy is based on providing great service,and not impounding your assets.
We spend a few hours with you and your team to understand the business objectives and how the new website needs to deliver with these KPI’s. Most clients have a website they are replacing, we conduct a thorough review on what works well historically, and where the gaps are. Finally we analyse your top competitors so that we can launch your new website with full SEO creds ready to outrank them.
We commence with the information architecture, and structure the content in a meaningful way to ensure users find the answers to their problems. At the top this commences with a sitemap, pulling together a content plan, wireframing key pages for initial approvals and then furnishing fully designed page layouts ready for hand-off to our developer team.
Our development team assumes responsibility for producing the website platform, taking all we have produced from discovery through to design and coding the new web platform by hand. Whilst we recommend Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress, we do not use templated/pre-coded packages, and minimise the use of plugins- opting to build the feature avoiding unnecessary code being used. We launch the new website privately to a staging server where we can hand over to you for the initial review.
This is where our clients are now able to scrutinise the website in a browser environment. We want to ensure all deliverables are satisfied (client approval) and that the designs that have been approved have been integrated into the web environment as intented.
BZ handle the process of launching your website live to our hosting infrastructure, or the server location of your choice. At this stage there is still work to be done such as setting up API’s for Google Maps, testing web forms, and ensuring page speed is optimal.
We believe that a website should never be ‘set and forget’, especially if your business is in a highly competitive environment. We work with you to evolve your website based on business objectives and what the future needs of the business are. We can manage all of your ongoing hosting requirements, our technical expertise in maintaining uptime and speed are second to none.
