Our Process

Client Meeting

DKDouglas Consulting, when ever possible, meets with the client face-to-face to learn about:

  • Your Business
  • Your Goals for your new website

DKDouglas Consulting reviews your current website with you to see what you like and dislike about it so that we can make sure it is brought over or left out of the new website.

From this meeting DKDouglas Consulting will develop a quote for you project. This quote will contain a time line estimate and pricing for the following stages.

Tools

After the quote is approved, DKDouglas Consulting will discuss with the client what tools to use for their website based on what you want to do.

Composite

After the technology you want is decided upon, DKDouglas Consulting begins an initial "comp" of the homepage. This comp will establish your companies branding, your client's user interface and the navigational design of your website. At this stage fonts, colors, and the overall look of your website that was discussed earlier is put together. This comp is then sent to the client for feedback and revisions.

After the first comp is agreed upon DKDouglas Consulting starts a second page design comp for your secondary pages. DKDouglas Consulting uses the layout and imagery from your homepage, but place the priority on your website's content. The secondary page design is sent to the client for review, and after it is approved it is used as the template for the rest of your site.

Development

DKDouglas Consulting uses the approved comps created earlier to develop pages using HTML, ASP.NET, and CSS. After the layout and navigation are put into place we add the content. Any content that the customer would like to present to their client is uploaded to the web server so that it can be placed into your website.

Additional Services

After your website has been designed, developed, and the content placed on your site you we start finalize your website with SEO meta tags, and finish the remaining coding such as forms or custom programming.

Q and A Testing

Your website is almost complete, DKDouglas Consulting tests everything on the new website to make sure it is functioning properly and looks good across multiple browsers. After we test the website we show it to you for the final approval before it goes live.
