When it comes to website building, there are multiple ways you can go about it. Some are better than others and it’s crucial to know about them. We at Inqiludio Digital have years of experience perfecting our process to get the most out of our time and deliver the best. We will be sharing our process and how we build a website.
For us, designing a website require 7 steps:
- Goal identification: I collaborate with the client to identify the objectives that the new website must achieve. Specifically, what it does.
- Scope definition: Once we are aware of the site’s objectives, we can define the project’s scope. Specifically, what features and web pages are needed for the site to achieve its objective, as well as when they will be built?
- Creating a sitemap and wireframes: When the scope is clearly defined, we can move on to the sitemap and specify how the features and content we described in the scope definition will interact.
- Content creation: With a larger picture of the site in mind, we can begin writing content for the individual pages, always keeping search engine optimization (SEO) in mind to help keep pages focused on a single subject. For our next stage, you must have authentic content to work with.
- Visual components: Now that the site architecture and some content are established, we can begin developing the visual brand. Depending on the client, this might already be clearly defined, but you could also be creating the visual style from scratch. Style tiles, mood boards, and element collages are a few tools that can be useful in this process.
By this point, you’ve completed all of your pages and specified how they will appear on the website.
- Testing: It’s time to test everything now that you’ve created all of your pages and defined how the site visitor will see them. To find anything from user experience issues to simple broken links, combine manual site browsing on a variety of devices with automated site crawlers.
- Launch: Once everything is flawlessly functioning, it is time to organize and carry out your website launch! This should involve scheduling your launch and developing your communication plans, i.e., when will you launch and how will you inform the public? Then it’s time to open the champagne.
