An Awesome Website

The Creative Process

Creating a new website or redesigning your current one can be an overwhelming task. In order to simplify things, we have broken the creative process down to six steps. 

Step 1: Knowledge

During the knowledge step, we will collect information about your current website, your customers, your company’s mission, and what you hope to achieve with the new website.

Step 2: Layout & Design

Once we have a better understanding of your business, the design work begins. Based on the information provided, we will create a design and send it to you for review. The design is worked on until you are 100% satisfied and love the way it looks! We will then collect from you, or create if required,  all of the content necessary to finish the website including all text and images.

Step 3: Implementation

Now that we have a final design and the content we can begin building the actual website. The implementation step consists of creating the content management system, any additional features and integrating the final design. This step is where the website comes to life and you can start using all the features.

Step 4: Feedback

Now that the website is ready we want to hear your final feedback. If there is anything that needs tweaking we will make changes before the site goes live.

Step 5: Launch & Training

The new site is ready to be shown to the world! In the launch and training step, the website is published live for customers to see. Training is available to learn how to use the new content management system so you can make changes to the website content without knowledge of web coding.

Step 6: Website Maintenance

A maintenance plan is recommended to keep your website’s safe, secure and up-to-date.

Website SECURITY 

We take website security very seriously as it is one of the best things you can do for your online business. Protecting a website will save you a tremendous number of hours, days, or even weeks in the event of an attack. 

Unfortunately, website attacks are very common and websites of all sizes are targets. 

Did you know:

  • Tens of thousands of websites are hacked every day
  • Google blacklists nearly 10,000 websites every single day
  • A website can be hacked and redirect visitors to another website without the website owner even knowing anything is wrong?
  • A site’s organic rankings and traffic can disappear if a site is hacked or has malware
  • Most hosting companies don’t take proper or frequent backups of hosted websites and are often even the source of the problem

What can our website security services do for you?

Our job is to do our best to secure your website and deter hackers. We can implement specific security measures to protect your website and continuously monitor it to help deter attacks and take immediate action in the event of an attack. This could make the difference of your website being down for a few minutes versus days or even weeks. 

Not sure if you need website security services?

If you don’t believe website security is required for your website, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What would you do if your website went offline for a week or longer?
  • How much would it cost you to rebuild your website?
  • How much revenue would you lose if your site went down?
  • How much revenue would you lose if you lost your organic rankings because your site was blacklisted?

Protect your online business, revenue, and reputation!
