Website visitors take less than 50 milliseconds to form an opinion about your website and according to a study by Adobe, 59% of these visitors would rather browse through a website that has beautiful graphics and quality content, rather than through a dull website.
Web design is very important for business success. Whether your goal is to improve your online image or to increase sales, a premium website that contains amazing UX, stunning visuals and engaging content is the best and most effective way to achieve your organisational goals.
This is where our website design and development services come in handy. In addition to making your website more user-friendly and beautiful, a properly designed website has the potential to attract thousands of people, keep them engaged and encourage them to make a purchase.
The web design process is a multi-step approach, which involves numerous activities. Each step of the website design and development process caters to a distinct element of the web process. These phases or steps include:
Before any web development project goes underway, we need to understand what the business is trying to achieve? Who the target audience/customers are? What type of content the audience likes to consume? What services do customers look for online? What web design practices competitors follow?
Before the actual website undergoes development, it is important for us to visualise the layout of the website. This is where the site architecture and wireframes come in. Developing the site architecture and wireframes beforehand are essential to ensure the final website is glitch-free and user-friendly.
After all the design and technical elements are in place, it is time to actually develop the website. We will work with you throughout the actual development stage and we will ask you for your input during the addition or subtraction of each website element.
Once the project has been defined, we then define the scope. This involves determining and documenting a list of specific project goals, deliverables, features, functions, tasks, deadlines, and ultimately costs. In other words, it is what needs to be achieved and the work that must be done, to deliver your project.
The graphics, colors, and fonts you use in your website play a very important role in the way people perceive your website and your business. At Blockweb, we will analyze your target market’s psychology to create appealing visuals for your website.
Site testing allows us to identify any broken pathways, malfunctioning links and site errors that may have escaped our attention. When all the tests are completed and every element of the web design is set in place, your website is made live!
Finally, once your website is functional and you’ve started your online business/marketing, our team of website design and development specialists will constantly monitor your site for problems, check for security concerns and keep both your site and servers at their optimal through scheduled maintenance checks.
Some of the maintenance services we offer include plugins update, security patches, content editing, page load time checking, data backup, CSS code fixing, database optimization, Analytics set-up, troubleshooting, DNS changes, activity reporting and more.
