Custom Web Design
Activeplanet Studio offers professional custom website design tailored specifically to our clients needs. Our focus is to develop websites that are aesthetically pleasing, easy to navigate, and those with quick download time.
We work closely with our clients to provide unique web design solutions that will make a lasting impression on your Internet audience. We communicate the development process in a logical and comprehensive manner.
The first step is to define the website goals. Will it be an informational site or will it be an e-commerce site? Who is your Internet audience? How many pages and what information do you want to include? What design preferences do you have? After all goals have been gathered, a Web Development Proposal is prepared detailing an outline of the proposed website. This outline includes:
Content and Page Structure
Material Investments (if applicable), Web Design Costs and Payment Schedules
Expected Deliverables Schedule
The next step is to design a prototype based on the proposal. The HTML layout, navigation structure, and functionality are created. The prototype will be uploaded to our server for the client to view and approve.
After the custom website prototype has been approved, the additional pages are developed. Graphics are web optimized for quick loading and content is added. The pages are tested on a wide variety of web browsers and environments to ensure functionality, usability and quality. HTML programming is validated to further ensure that pages render optimally in as many browsers as possible.
When the website is complete and all pages have been approved, the website is uploaded to the client’s server of choice. The entire site is again tested to ensure usability and functionality.
Comprehensive Website Maintenance Agreements may be chosen when the website is complete. Keeping your website fresh with current information is an absolute necessity to portray a professional image to your Internet audience. Ensuring that your site is current and relevant is as important as initially creating the site.
A marketing plan to promote the website should be devised. We will make Internet marketing recommendations based on the client's objectives and advertising budgets.
