These pages include the most important pages required for a website. They can be substituted for more relevant pages depending on the businesses needs.
The products page is not an e-commerce page (i.e products can’t be bought from the site). If an ecommerce site is required, then it is highly recommended to use an e-commerce platform such as Neto or Shopify.
Client onboarding and Branding
The first step is to undertake the client onboarding survey. A survey collects all the relevant business information, branding assets (company logo), social media profiles and content. While an initial consultation setups up the scope for the project.
A staging site will be created for the project, so that all content can be uploaded on a demo site. The website’s brand assets will be uploaded, as well as content provided. Colour schemes and fonts will be tweaked according to the brands profile. At this stage the pages will be created such as the Home Page, About Us Page, Contact Us Page and Blog Page.
The first revision focuses on the look and feel of the website, as well as how the content is displayed. Clients will be able to interact with the staging website and feedback is appreciated. A forms plugin will also be installed at this stage.
During the first revision specific feedback is requested on certain elements:
- Color Scheme
- Display of content
At this stage the website’s design should be aligned with the company’s branding.
The second revision includes the installation of important plugins and further development of the functionality of the website.
Backend access is granted during this stage so clients can play around with the content and design. As well as learn more about the CMS and get advice on how to do things.
This is the last stage before quality assurance and website migration. It will be the last time that clients are able to change any element of the site.
Quality Assurance (Pre Launch )
Pre-launch quality assurance includes providing an initial backup of the website’s code. Afterwards a human review is conducted in order to check the design in a variety of browsers and display formats. All pages of the website are reviewed to ensure that images and text are displayed correctly. Contact forms and other functionality are also tested.
All our websites come with one year free website hosting. However, clients are free to choose their own host and the website can easily be installed onto theirs.
Access to the domain login will also be needed to point the domain name to the correct hosting provider.

It also includes the installation and configuration of the following:
- Security Plugin
- Cache Plugin
- Google Analytics
- SEO Plugin
