Developing a new website consists of several steps. The moment you partner with us, you know exactly what you’ve gotten yourself into, which steps will be made and the results it delivers.
Step 1 – Personal contact
We have a unique work method at Draad. Beforehand, you will receive a draft of the design that we have in mind, non-binding of course, based on the information you’ve sent or which we have found ourselves. We make this draft based upon our estimates, sometimes even without having talked to you. This is the only way for us to be able to truly think out-of-the-box. And by the way, you probably also want to see something before you sign our quote.
Step 2 – The quotation
When the draft is a success and the scope is clear, we start working on the quotation. The quotation explains in detail what we do and what we don’t do. Obviously accompanied by an overview of the costs. Our quotations always mention a fixed price based on the functionalities and parts listed in the quotation. You won’t be shocked afterwards by an invoice you didn’t see coming. The quotation also indicates the planning of the project, so you know what to expect and when. Upon approval of this quotation we always ask for a down payment of 40% of the total amount.
Step 3 – Design
Based upon the conversation we had and the draft we prepared, we start working on the design of the most important pages and parts of the website. We show the result in a convenient online product presentation. We ask for targeted feedback so we can make the website exactly the way you want it. This is also the time to start collecting the content included in the website.
Step 4 – Development
As soon as it’s clear how everything will look, it is time to transform images into working web pages. This is merely a technical process during which we build the website according to the latest guidelines. The final product is placed in a preview so you know exactly how it’s going to look before the website or the application is launched.
Step 5 – Implementation
The time has come to place all content and to finish the final details. After that, it is time to show the website to the general public. We ensure an impeccable transit from the old to the new website. Old links and referrals are properly forwarded to the new website so that visitors are not confronted with a dead end. We obviously also take care of the right SEO-settings so the findability only gets better.
