Website Design & Development
Website design and development is a core competency of HiveMind Marketing. When you outsource your web development or web redesign project to HiveMind Marketing, you're in good hands. To ensure a timely, successful, implementation, our website design services follow a tight development process that encompasses seven phases:
Phase I — Business strategy development
HiveMind Marketing will meet with your team members to clarify objectives, identify subjective preferences, discuss possible thematic approaches, and uncover potential problems. We take the time to get to know you, your company, and how your business strategy ties into your website. From this discussion, we'll be able to develop a more comprehensive web development proposal that includes milestones and costs.
Phase II — Information architecture planning
Based on the input from our meetings with your staff, HiveMind Marketing will develop a site map that depicts how we think your new website should be organized. This web development step helps everyone to clarify navigation requirements and prioritize information. Each web page will be identified as static or dynamic. For dynamic pages, we’ll clarify technology requirements and address the feasibility of adding development modules for content management, marketing, or ecommerce as necessary.
Phase III — Creative web development
With a site map approved, our inhouse web designers will begin development of creative concepts that reflect your business strategy, the ideal user experience, and visual identity. We generally present home page web designs in our initial meetings and follow those up with secondary category pages to show design consistency. We'll encourage you to discuss and review these concepts both during the meeting and afterward, by as many members of the client team as deemed necessary.
Phase IV — Implementation
With approved designs, HiveMind Marketing will begin HTML development of the home page, as well as templates for secondary and tertiary pages for each section of the website. We'll coordinate any outsourced application development to save you money while preserving site objectives. A working prototype is deployed prior to final assembly and production to keep everyone on-target and refine issues.
Phase V — Testing
Finally, when web development is complete, we'll set up your site in a protected directory on our servers, so that you can preview the site without prematurely exposing it to the outside world. We'll conduct platform, browser and functionality testing while you review content.
Phase VI — Final delivery
When all browser-specific issues have been corrected, we’ll deliver the final website to you or load it directly onto a server. We also maintain a current back-up of your site, ready to re-stage at a moment's notice. At this point, you can add any additional content that wasn't already developed by HiveMind Marketing.
Phase VII — Ongoing support
At HiveMind, we're interested in a long-term business relationship. That's why we offer an ongoing support program to ensure that you achieve a measurable return on your website investment. This web development support program includes ongoing visitor traffic analysis and management of your search engine positioning, as well as Internet business insights and recommendations. It's part of our commitment to make your business more profitable.
