How we do it

At the commencement of the project, your Project Manager will prepare and provide you with a detailed Project Plan that you can reference throughout the project.

Throughout the project there are several approval points past which additions, alterations, or amendments to that stage will incur additional charges. At each of these points, you will be advised of this and your approval will progress the project to the next step.

In order to deliver a quality website that not only looks great but also functions as it should, development of your new website will take place in five distinct phases:

1

Discover

This consultation stage allows us the opportunity to get to know you, your customers, and what you need from your website. It is also were your website content is developed.

  • Understand your requirements and
    business goals
  • Define target audience/s and tailored messaging
  • Site specification and site map
  • Identify any third-party integrations and specific functionalities required
  • Determine media content sources
    (brand assets /photography etc.)
  • Plan and gather content and media
