Brickweb: What You Get!
When companies and businesses come to Brick technology asking for a web design they more often than not know exactly what they want in regard to design, features and other web design aspects but the issue comes because they do not know how to achieve this.
Brick technology has a team who are passionate about what they do – in fact we are geeks! We get off on doing what we do which is why we are the best at each and every one of our roles.
In this article we are going to take a look at the stepping stones that need to be taken in order to achieve a website which is ready to launch. So where does the process of web design all begin?
It starts when the client comes for an initial consultation at our Brick technology office and it is within this meeting where a specification is discussed. We sit down with our clients one on one in order to form their exactly requirements and expectations. Each and every little part of design is discussed including all the features which the website should include.
Sometimes the above process can become a bit like overkill, but in the long run every detail is important and it will result in a world class web design exactly how you wanted it. Brick technology can help form a specification for you even if you haven’t a clue what it is you’re looking for!
Then with the specification in hand the design work starts and a web designer can start to work closely with the client to effectively achieve the desired website. Working with the client closely they can together work out the best way of achieving every feature and if one isn’t possible then they can work to come up with a different solution to achieve the same or extremely similar result.
Whilst the web design stage is ongoing an SEO consultant will oversee it in order to ensure that website is optimised in order to perform well with the search engines.
Items such as H1 tags on each page need to be considered as well as Meta description and keywords. Further to this the URL has to be carefully considered in order to ensure that it is “friendly”.
Normally the next item to consider it platforms, but Brick technology know that our websites perform well across a whole range of platforms inclusive of mobile devices. All the back end is controlled by our customers so they know exactly what content is on their websites as well as what imagery is presented. It is completely content managed by you – the customer!
Once the work on the website is done it is now time to hand it over to our customer. On doing so they can test it out, get other people’s opinions and then make any changes they feel are necessary. The website is now on the live server and publically available but it isn’t just as easy as moving it across. Further checks must go ahead to ensure that it works in exactly the same way as it did on the test site.
Now handing over the website doesn’t mean the work stops, it is now over to the customer to ensure that they drive the website forward. It needs products adding regularly, news updates and someone to effectively oversee it.
