How We Work

The process explained

The step-by-step guide shown below outlines our professional working practices that have helped us to produce original and cost effective web solutions for over two hundred satisfied clients in the United Kingdom, Europe and the USA.

Step 1: Free consultation

The first step is to examine your overall business objectives and understand your requirements. We will conduct a free, no-obligation consultation at either your premises or our offices in Leicester.

1st WebDesigns strongly believe that your web site strategy should be well thought out with ideas comprised to provide the maximum return on investment.

During step 1 we will gain an understanding of your business, your market and the long-term aims of your website.

Step 2: Proposal

Following the design consultation process we will provide you with a detailed set of proposals outlining our understanding of your requirements, recommended solutions, timescales and costs. We will aim to provide a tailor-made solution and will never sell a service or product based purely on our own ability to maximise profit.

Step 3: Specification

The next step is to produce a technical specification for your web site. This covers all elements of the project in detail, expanding upon the original proposal and setting out the plans for our web design team to follow.

Step 4: Implementation

The implementation stage involves converting the proposal and specification into a real 'web site.'

At this stage you will be assigned a Project Manager who will co-ordinate the work and arrange regular meetings to keep you informed of our progress. Unlike other agencies we will meet as often as required without additional charge.

We will also adhere to standard criteria in order to deliver your website on time, within budget and to ensure that we meet your expectations.

Step 5: Testing & Quality Control

Before the launch of your web site we carry out a series of quality assurance procedures to ensure that the end product is functional, usable, robust and accurate.

Step 6: Documentation & Training

The project would be documented in order to improve the speed and efficiency of future updates. 1st WebDesigns can provide your business with training and user manuals if required.

Step 7: Website Launch

Your new website is launched.

Step 8: Marketing

Together, we would be able to develop long-term marketing strategies to ensure your website's continued success.
