Our Process

Get in touch with the North Shore web design company with a trusted process

STEP 1

The Proposal

Together we discuss your website needs and work through some questions to help establish your site requirements.

We will then send you a proposal outlining the site inclusions and costs of the requirements, and we may highlight some inclusions you may like to look at in the future. The BLUE arrows in the proposal margin indicate the inclusions you have mentioned you need. Other inclusions we may recommend we mark in PINK.

We then discuss the proposal and edit it if needed. The price is based on the elements we agree you need. Once the price is agreed upon, any substantial additions to the scope of your project (such as extra pages or newsletter subscription) may incur additional costs.

We’re the go-to North Shore web design company and can’t wait to work with you.

STEP 2

Phase 1 Payment

We will send you an invoice for 50% of the site build. We use Xero for our accounts, so Stripe and credit card payments are available on request for a fee of 2.9% + NZ$0.30

Once we have payment, we can move to Step 3.

STEP 3

Wireframe Layout

Woodswork creates a basic diagram called a wireframe to confirm the site requirements, structure and functionality. The wireframe requires approval before we start working on your site.

The wireframe is no reflection of the site design. We keep it looking basic on purpose! If it looks like Latin, it probably is! We use dummy text, called Lorem Ipsum, in some areas of the wireframe to indicate areas.

STEP 4

Content

Woodswork will invite you to a Google Drive folder where we add and share content. You can supply any content you choose to help us support your brand, such as your logo. We can write your page text and supply page SEO and keywords, and we source images if you have none.

Once your content is finalised and approved, we can build your site.

Text is supplied by you as individual site pages.
Images at 2000px for full width or 800px for smaller images: jpg, png or pdf files are accepted. We have provided great information on how to create your content in this article.

STEP 5

Website Build

Once all the content is available, we will build your website.

As all site builds have different requirements and budgets, we have structured our build proposal and itemised every cost so that you know what the cost of your site (and any extra inclusions) will be. You don’t pay for anything you don’t need.

STEP 6

Website Approval

When we have finished building your website, you will receive an email with a link to your new work-in-progress website build. The site is not public at this stage. At this point you have the opportunity to ask for edits if any.

The cost of your site includes at least 2 hours of changes, depending on the site build. These can be emailed or sent in a document. Once you are happy with your site, please send us your approval by email.

STEP 7

Phase 2 Payment

We will send you an invoice for the rest of the account, we can move to Steps 8, 9 and 10 once the invoice is paid.

STEP 8

LIVE!!!

During the build of your website and the approval stage, your site has been hosted on our secure WordPress host. and your site has only been able to be viewed by those sent the link. Now it is time for us to point your domain to your new website. Your site is now on the world wide web. Congratulations!

STEP 9

Training

Our online training consists of brief videos and written instructions with screen snapshots. We break topics into bite-sized pieces and make them as concise as possible. Because it is online, you can always have it on hand and refer to it easily. We can also provide in-person training if you prefer to purchase this option.

Training is given on some sites before the site goes live if the owner needs to add extra content themselves, such as products.

STEP 10

Moving Forward

Whether your website is brand new or a replacement, when it goes live, the most important thing to do is drive traffic to it. We’ll give you some tips and tricks on how to do this. These ideas will help search engines index your site faster and improve your SEO rankings immediately.
