Website Design

WEB MAGE specialises in Responsive, Mobile Friendly website design using WordPress and Joomla. They include Content Management Systems (CMS) which allow you to create, edit, organise and publish your content to the web. They allow you to have full control over your files and documents without needing to have any technical knowledge. A CMS can be used to build any type of website, including:

Online shop/eCommerce

Small business

Portfolios

Blogs

You will get your website created and tailored to your needs by a professional with the added benefit of being able to update it yourself rather than paying a developer to do it for you. This makes a CMS the perfect choice for a low cost affordable responsive website.

Design Process in 4 Stages

Planning

Get in touch via the Contact page HERE to arrange a free personal website consultation. You will hear back within 24 hours and the consultation will begin. You will be provided with a quote once Monica has a good idea of your needs. In the consultation we will discuss:

  • What you want your website to look like - it can be developed based on your needs and specifications or you can supply a mockup or examples of other websites you like the look of
  • The general scope of your site in terms of the amount pages and products required.
  • Any additional services (SEO/Google Analytics, social network integration, etc.)
  • What your desired launch date is
  • If you already own a domain name or need one provided
  • If you already have website hosting or need it provided

When you are happy with the project plan and quote, we can move forward. Half of the project price is paid up front and the Production stage begins.

Production

Monica will take your input and work it into a test website
(e.g. www.yourbusiness.co.uk/testsite) where you will be able to view your website online as it's being developed. This will allow for greater creativity and collaboration between yourself and your designer. You can request whatever changes you want throughout the process, and they’ll be integrated into the design. There’s no set limit to the number of change requests you can make. Please Note: The production phase involves two elements: design and content, and bringing them together on the website. It is the client’s responsibility to provide all of their own text and images for use on their site. If you do however need help with gathering content for your website then please visit the Services page.

Once you’re happy with your website, it’s time to launch.

Launch

When you're ready for the site to be launched, it will be put in its rightful place, so moved from:

www.yourbusiness.co.uk/testsite

to

www.yourbusiness.co.uk

and the final invoice will be raised. This includes the second half of the project price and the price of any extra services you may have requested. Monica will add your new website to the WEB MAGE portfolio and present it to her social networking sites to give it some extra traffic and attention.

Maintenance

Websites from WEB MAGE can be made with WordPress and Joomla CMS which are very user-friendly and designed to make updating your site easy. You will be given training and written instructions on how to perform basic maintenance on your site (e.g. upgrading your software, taking backups and posting new content). If however, you need to focus on other aspects of your business you can leave the updating of your site to Monica by taking advantage of the maintenance plans that WEB MAGE offers.
