A successful website development plan has several steps...
Step 1 - Define Goals and Expectations
During the step we would meet with a small group from your organization, your website committee, to discuss the budget, goals and expectations for your website. Some of the things we will discuss are budget, target audience, needs, time constrains and desired features. This information will be used to plan the rest of the web development process.
Step 2 - Establish Structure and Layout
Once the needs have been defined, the site structure and navigation is assembled. This step includes drafting a flowchart to outline the navigational architecture of the website for the website committee’s approval.
Step 3 - Compile Information
The information step is the most critical and the most time intensive for your organization. During this step we will determining what information is necessary to meet the goals and expectations we established for your project, and we will assist you in gathering the content through a series of worksheets and interviews.
Step 4 - Website Design
Once the needs and objectives are established, the Creative Team designs the graphics for the site including banner, menu, icons and other graphics. We work with our clients to develop a website that is visually engaging and informative and reflects your character and identity.
Step 5 - Website Development
While the Creative Team is working on Step 4, the Development Team will begin the website development process. This includes domain registration, setting up your SQL database, installing and configuring the modules selected and creating any custom forms required.
Step 6 - Content
Using the information from Step 3, our team will begin to populate your website and you will begin to see everything fall into place. If there is something that was omitted during Step 3, this is the time to make those adjustments.
Step 7 - Training
One of the key selling points of our system is the series of video tutorials available to help train site administrators and page editors. These videos walk the administrator through the common content management processes. We also offer on-site training for your website administrators tailored to their specific needs and experience levels.
Step 8 - Testing and Review
The functionality of your site is tested throughout the process, but during this step each piece of the website is scrutinized to ensure trouble-free operation. There is also a final review meeting with the website committee to facilitate a smooth website launch.
Step 9 - Website Launch
Once the website committee has approved the website, the website is moved to a production server and the domain name is directed to the developed website. Once this is complete, the website is again tested to verify the site transferred correctly.
Step 10 - Maintenance and Support
To ensure a smooth transition, we provide one month of free maintenance and support. During this time, our staff is available to answer questions and provide assistance to make sure your staff has the skills and confidence to maintain the website in the future. If you choose to continue using Torxweb for support and maintenance after deployment, we have several options to fit your needs.
