The Process of Getting a Website
The thought of trying to get a website up and running can be intimidating. Don’t let your fear of the unknown take away the potential to grow or kick-start your business! Mann Print & Design will guide you through the process. Take a look at these simple steps.
Step 1: Make Some Early Decisions
Begin by asking yourself a few questions and take time to seriously consider your answers.
- What is the purpose of the website?
- What goals are you specifically trying to accomplish?
- Who is your audience?
- Will you be selling products on your website?
- What kind of information is essential to share with your customers on the site?
If you are unsure of any of these answers, consult your colleagues or even your customers for assistance. After all, your customers will be the ones visiting your website and utilizing its features.
Step 2: Gather Information
Now that you’ve answered a few of your preliminary questions, begin to gather information. This includes writing some text and finding photos relevant to your product or services. You’ll also decide how many pages you think you will need and what will go on those pages. If you need assistance, we are more than happy to help you with your copy writing and product photography.
Step 3: Meet with Mann Print & Design
When you feel confident you have established the goals of your website and decided on content, contact Mann Print & Design for a free, no obligation consultation.
Step 4: Design Website Concept
If you agree to go with Mann Print & Design , we will begin the design process. We will produce a website concept (which is similar to a rough draft) within a scheduled time frame. You may request edits to the look and feel of the concept during this step, until you are satisfied with the results.
Step 5: Build Website Pages
After the concept has been approved, we will move to the construction phase of your website. During this process we will take your concept and create a website from it. At this point, we will do our magic and bring your ideas to life!
Step 6: Test, Revise, Launch
After the website is finished, and we’ve had a chance to do a final proofread with you, we will make any necessary changes and launch your new site. Hurray!
Step 7: Market & Maintain
After your project is complete and the site is launched, you will need to tell everyone – and we mean everyone – about your new website. Mann Print & Design offers general marketing advice so you can point clients to your new online home. In addition, we can make regular updates and layout changes to your website to help insure potential customers return often.
