When we initially engage for your WordPress project, we will ask lots of questions and get everyone’s critical thinking caps tightly secured. We must ensure we understand your goals clearly.
Once the WordPress web project needs are fully understood, we then quantify the upcoming project into an easy-to-understand quote with clear milestones. Once approved, we set deadlines in a project plan you can access anytime from our portal.
Many businesses who come to us for a new WordPress website also need branding, or at least a branding refresh. We handle branding scopes as small as just freshening and editing a logo to as large as creating an entire set of brand guidelines.
Our talented designers love being brought onto branding milestones for WordPress sites, and it shows in their end-products.
We prefer to start our WordPress website projects by focusing on content and messaging first. Our process is to design around content and we create the design mockups to fit the content which we help solidify during this first crucial phase.
From identifying site structure and menu organization to writing copy for service pages, we can assist with as much of this phase of design as necessary. Clients often find it very engaging and eye-opening how much content assistance they need during this phase.
With content solidified, our talented design team transforms text into visual mockups. We typically utilize Adobe XD to display website mockups. Adobe XD has great collaboration features alongside its industry-leading toolsets, to allow both our team and our clients to contextually discuss features of the mockup inline.
The number of mockups usually coincides with the number of pages that need unique layouts or elements approved, and ranges from 3 to 6 on average for most WordPress website projects.
As design mockups are approved, they are next translated into interactive WordPress website pages. The premium WordPress theme is customized by our developers in WordPress, with HTML/CSS and even PHP if necessary.
We typically utilize beta and release candidate milestones. Our beta milestone is considered reached when the vast majority of the site is functioning. Our release candidate milestone is reached after we’ve quality-checked the site and we consider it 100% ready for launch.
Once the full-size desktop versions of the pages are developed, we test for responsiveness on popular laptop, tablet and mobile resolutions as well. We even emulate devices directly, to catch as many bugs and odd behaviors as possible before launching.
This extensive testing ensures every device from tiny phones to 8K displays will all have a smooth experience on the site. When we’re confident in the site’s consistent behavior, we’ll launch the site at the convenience of our client.
We regularly maintain and update hundreds of WordPress sites for our clients. We have a dedicated WordPress hosting solution so affordable it’s meant to be irresistible to our clients. We benefit as well, as our developers have blazing-fast backends to interface with and well-maintained websites are headache-free websites.
