Coming up with a website idea for your business is not enough, as an investor you need to give it life. Through Website development Denver, companies have been able to bring their ideas to reality. Before you can commit to this process, it is important that you know some of the steps involved in the web design and development.
Here are some of the phases, stages, or steps you can use in your website development process.
The first step in a website development process is gathering information, with a competitive advantage and target audience in mind. Here, you learn about how companies in your industry use websites and identify how far you can go with this solution.
In many companies, website development comes as a marketing, communication, and promotional solution. In building a strategy to stay ahead of competition, you’ll need to give your website a meaning. Develop purpose in your process through a mission, vision, and goals.
In this stage, you will need market research and brainstorming. Therefore, there is a need for questionnaires to guide you in developing your strategy and describe your project. In this stage, you can involve all stakeholders including the developer for more applicable ideas. This stage is estimated to take between one to two weeks.
In website development planning, there are two things that dominate this stage: Sitemap and Wireframe or mock-up creation. The two elements of planning organize and categorizes the content in your website into topics and sub-topics. This process aims to provide a clear view of the navigation system and how the User interface will look like.
The planning stage of any website development services helps in identifying the scope of work and resources needed such as tools and technologies. It also describes the relation of various components on your website.
The design phase takes care of the user interface: the look and feel of your website. It is mostly concerned with the final image of the website. It takes into consideration visual content such as photos and videos.
Here, you need to consider three things: user experience, client behavior, and target audience. Branding is achieved in this stage by integrating the company’s logo, colors, or slogan onto the page layout. As a client, you will be making endless reviews and approvals until it matches your mission, vision, goals, and needs.
It is an opportunity to make as many changes as possible to make the appearance more appealing to the eye. Therefore, the communication between the client and the developer is critical in this phase because making changes during the development stage affects the schedule and budget of the project.
You can also do content writing as part of your design stage and introduce Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to the design to increase your website traffic. Graphic design is most dominant in this stage of website development. This process can take between four and 15 weeks.
Development: Front-End and Back-end
The development stage is the implementation of the design of your website. This stage consists of the technical components of website development such as coding. This phase is often divided into two parts: Front-end, and back-end.
Front-end website development is in charge of what you see when you copy and paste or type a URL on your favorite browser and press “enter”. Here developers work on the code and architecture of the website that is facing the user.
The user interface components such as content and images you may have developed during the design phase are now assembled and interconnected in this stage. If a website was a house, then we would say that Front-end development deals with interior design.
On the other side, Back-end development deals with things the user can’t see but helps in making the website functional. It maintains the technology that runs the features or components on your page layout and also takes care of the storage.
You need back-end development to connect the website to the server and database using the appropriate server-side languages. Still, on the house analogy, you can consider it to be the wiring and piping system that runs through the house, which is always hidden inside the walls.
A Full stack developer can work on both dimensions of the website development process and will deliver the full package. You can choose to hire a dedicated front end and backend developers to work on your project or go for full-stack developers. This phase of the website development process takes between six and 15 weeks to complete.
Testing is a crucial stage in the website development process as it identifies errors and mistakes that the developer might have made. You should check all scripts, forms, and content. As for your content, you can run software to find possible typo, grammar, and spelling mistakes.
This stage determines the functionality of the product and its compatibility with the target web browsers. Your site must meet the current standards of web design and development. This stage takes at least two weeks to complete.
Deployment and Launching
When your website passes the test and gets approval, it is time to deliver it for use. With a domain name and the site is first uploaded to the web hosting server. You will need a run-through before you launch the website to confirm that it works properly and that all files were uploaded correctly. This stage marks the end of the project but not the end of your site’s work.
Your new website is on the infancy stage so it would not be appropriate to end the process after launching the website. This ongoing process of website development deals with monitoring the operations for security breaches, updating the information and technology, and perform regular site backups. Content Management System (CMS) makes it easy for website owners to edit and update their content.
