What We Believe In
When it comes to building a new website for a small business or start up, that last thing you wants is a long-drawn-out and complicated web design process. At least, we’re not big fans of it. On the flip side, we’re also not fans of the cheap-and-fast method, the method that leaves you hanging with a boxy, templated looking website.
We believe that your website should be as unique as your business, it should look great, and function well. It should be fast, look great on mobile, be easy to navigate, and it should be a stellar representation of your business online. A good website will help visitors find information they need, answer their questions, and most importantly, it helps visitors into customers.
We also believe that, building your new website is not complicated, it doesn’t take forever, and it should not cost a arm and a leg. So we set out to to develop that perfect balance of “simple process” and “amazing website!” And guess what, we found it!
We developed our web design process to make web design simple and pleasant. And by the end, with our experience and creative skill, we work with you to bring your business to life online, whithout complications. Our simple process includes all the steps to build a great-looking and personalized website, with no added time and no massive price tag.
So how do we do it?
Our “Secret” Ingredients
We’re easy to to talk to
We don’t use a go-between
We’ve found this method adds time, increases costs, and leads to a lot of misinterpretation, kinda like playing telephone. At Key Marketing Strategies, we do our web design and development in house, and the person you speak to is the person who builds your website. There’s never a go between.
Focus on great design
We incorporate your feedback at every step of the design process, and we’re not done until you’re completely happy with the way your website looks.
No big mumbo-jumbo
We know you’re not a web designer so we steer away from using large technical mambo-jumbo and we keep things transparent and easy to understand.
We can’t tell you how often we hear “thank you for explaining that to me like that!”.
We prioritize a growing relationship
That’s also why we provide SEO and advertising services, to help get yur business seen and heard. So yep, you can depend on us for years to come!
We’re constantly improving
The better we are at what we do, the better your website will be. That’s why we constantly stay up to date within our own industry, routinely look for better ways to do things, and constantly keeping up with modern web design trends.
The Five Essential Parts of Your New Websites
Part of keeping our web design process simple and streamlined is focusing on the five essential parts of any website. No mater how well designed and fancy a website is, it requires at least five essential parts to be effective:
A website must be well designed and properly represent a businesses brand.
So, What Can You Expect When Getting Started?
How Our Webdesign Process Works
Our websites project manager will have a short call with you to review the project scope, review your current website and branding, and discuss any special functionality your new website may require.
2a. Logo Design
We may be completely re-branding in this step, in which case we will first have a new logo professionally designed and delivered to you as a complete package. Then we will return to Phase 1) Discovery, and Phase 2) Homepage design.
At this point, we will ask you for any additional content for your new website, if not already provided. We will then continue building out all pages.
Once we have everything put together, we will send you a link to review the entire website, where you can click through all the pages and get familiar with the full user experience.
If any tweaks are needed to design or functionality, we will get a list from you and send it back to you once all changes are completed.
After the website is approved and ready to go online, we collect any final payment due for the website, as well as optional enrollment onto one of our web hosting services.
Launching the website is as simple as connecting your domain name to the website. We offer assistance with connecting your domain name, if needed. Or, if you would rather connect it yourself, we can provide you, or your IT contact, the information you will need from our side, to put it online.
Now it’s time to celebrate and announce the launch of your new website!
