Web Project Timeline
Web Project Timeline - A typical management approach
All our client projects are managed closely in accordance with our in-house development processes and methodology. It is irrelevant whether the web project is Gold Coast, Brisbane or Melbourne based, all are delivered utilising our online project management, testing and issue management systems to ensure that we are on top of your website development project at all times and keeping you informaed of our progress, any issues requiring your attention or changes in scope that need to be discussed.
The very first thing we do is getting to know you and what your business is about. We then take a look at what you are after by way of a web solution that is going to deliver to your needs. We do this without any presumptions on what they exactly will be just yet. Right now we are wanting to simply understand what we have to do for you.
Our Proposed Solution
Following on from our 'Needs Analysis' we will provide you with our proposed solution that addresses all your needs identifying the outcomes you can come to expect and how our solution will deliver to those outcomes.
Your proposal will spell out exactly what you will be getting, how it will be delivered, in what time frame and the assumptions and expectations that are integral to the proposal.
Of course, the financial investment expected from you will also be provided with a detailed schedule of fees separately identifying te upfront costs and any ongoing service fees involved. All are provided at a fixed cost.
Your proposal is sent to you electronically where you can view it or download as a PDF for printing and approval all online.
Launching your project involves a certain amount of housekeeping and luckily for you, most of the work is on our part as we set your project up in our online systems for project management, content collection, accounting and other miscellaneous activities.
We also explain to you how you will be able to keep abreast of project activities tracking progress and providing you with simple tools for engaging with us and in your project.
With this aside we then launch into information gathering where we confirm what your business is all about, who your target markets are and how you see yourself servicing them. It is highly likely that you will be given a number of information gathering activities that you will need to pursue in readiness for provding us with youroverall content
Design and Customisation
Central to the design of your new website web will be driven by the structure of information to be shared with the world through your internet presence. A key factor that also comes into play is understanding your mark positioning and branding.
All these factors are taken into account in designing your new website - the look and feel, how visitors will navigate to different information, what actions we will lead them to and what features and functionality will be incorporated into the design of the website.
We take everything gathered and develop a clear and actionable strategy, presenting the overall architecture through user cases, solutions design, wireframes, business processes and functional design concepts.
Basic Site Build
After your website designs for page templates and layouts have been agreed, we will commence the build of your basic site. This first stage is about ensuring we have the overall designs correct and developed as agreed. Your site is built as a skeleton - the main pages and core features will be in place with site navigation enabled. However, content and certain functionality may not yet be provided.
Completion of the basic site build is a critical milestone as any further work on your site will only occur once signoff by you is given

We will assist you with understanding what content is required and how that content should be prepared and will offer guidance on how to obtain the best imagery. Arrangements can be made to provide specific copywriting services and obtaining suitable images as required.
You will be expected to develop your content while we are building your basic site.
