Process for Designing Your Website

Programming / CodingThe website process

All website development programming/coding is done with frequent updates sent to you. On going development requires testing along the way, which you will be provided a link to view the progress as you wish.

Website Pages

Based upon your contract and the final design you selected, I create as many static or dynamic pages as needed to complete your site.

Website Navigation

Navigation links or drop down menus, and rollover effects, if desired, are completed.

Site Content

Incorporation of your logo, photos and text content is included in all projects. Custom logo design is available for an additional fee, please inquire if interested.

CSS Stylesheet

CSS Stylesheets are used to define font faces, styles, sizes and colors for consistency throughout the site.

Website Favicon

A favicon is a small image that displays in the address bar and on the favorites menu when someone bookmarks or adds your website to their “Favorites”. Creation of a favicon is included in all custom website development projects.

Response Forms / Email Contact Forms

I always recommend at least one contact form for your visitor’s convenience. Using a contact form, a visitor can contact you directly from your website without needing to open their email program. This is especially convenient if a visitor is not using their own computer or their email program is not available.

Testing Phase

Search Engine Readiness Check

Meta Tags, Page Titles, Page Heading, Alt Image Tags, Link Text, and Page Body Text evaluation and adjustment where needed throughout the website. At no time can I guarantee when or where the search engines will place your website within their search results or directory.

Browser Compatibility Testing

Your website is tested on a variety of operating systems and browsers to insure proper display and functionality.

Grammar & Spell Check

Before the website is launched, a grammar and spell check is performed to insure there are no mistakes.

Dead Link Check

A thorough check for misdirected links and missing files is performed just prior to as well as after launch of your website.

Forms / Programming

Any email contact forms and/or programming features included in your project are tested to confirm they are functioning as required.
