Requirements & Information Gathering
With every upgrade project or building a new website we sit down with you and learn what your requirements are and strategize on a solution that meets your current business needs. This kickoff meeting is where we get to understand your core needs deeper than our initial meetings. We define all the requirements, set time tables, and define the competitive functionality needed to perform in a way to bring customers to your company.
Information Architecture Strategy
As we design and build your website we will evaluate the servers used for your site, content strategy, and overall organization to meet the needs of your users. This optimization and architecture strategy helps us optimize the experience for your users as well as the search engines.
Search Engine Optimization or SEO
Every page of your website will have keywords that match your page setup, description for the search engines, proper titles, alternate text for the images, images optimized for viewing online, robots.txt, structured meta data, XML site map, proper 301 redirects for any pages that have changed, and more. Part of the process is testing the overall speed of the site to provide a fast and responsive experience for your users.
Security is an important piece for any business online. We make certain that every site has a Digicert TLS (newer version of SSL or Green Pad Lock). Part of the security setup process after making certain every page shows with the green pad lock is setting up a proper daily backup schedule for the website and the database your website is built on. The final piece is setting any required firewall rules that are needed for your website.
