This is my first professional website - how does the whole process work?

- The design process begins with a consultation with our designer.

- We then begin designing the main homepage, making as many amendments as needed until your are 100% happy with the overall look and function.

- The rest of the website pages are then designed. We’ll help you develop your content: all the text, images and interactive elements such as contact forms.

- Once the full website design is finished we create the code for the website, including the WordPress content management system (CMS).

- The next stage involves you checking all the content is correct, whilst we test all the technical, design and accessibility elements prior to launch. This is called the beta testing stage.

- Following the beta stage, the website is then ready to go online and will be uploaded to your host server. Your site is now live and able to be viewed by anyone on the internet.
