To get an idea of how we work, we’ve put together this outline showing the primary steps involved in a new web project. Each project is unique, and many take varying paths to a successful launch, but this is the most common process that we found works the best for our clients.



It all begins with a real, down-to-earth conversation between you and the web experts at COLEwebdev. We offer every business 1 free hour of consultation time. We use this conversation to learn more about your business, your goals and your challenges.




Based on the information gathered from the initial consultation we then create a written proposal. We summarize the key components of your web project and give you a concise, easy-to-understand, fixed-price proposal.



Once the proposal has been agreed upon and a deposit made, we begin the process of planning your web project. Meetings and other necessary project components such as photoshoots or content creation tasks are discussed and scheduled.


The first and most important project element to begin is the design. Based on the current state of your logo and branding, COLEwebdev works with you to create a design that is attractive and effective at achieving your goals.  Design proofs are supplied to the client for feedback and approval.  Additional design proofs, such as smartphone and tablet versions are created as necessary until a final cohesive look-and-feel is established.

 All designs from COLEwebdev are 100% custom.  This requires our clients to provide us with thoughtful and thorough feedback to aid us in creating a design that will impress you, and your website visitors. Our principle focus when designing is to create a layout that is pleasing to the eye while also depicting the optimal brand image for the client that they want to portray to their visitors. This combined with our focus on usability, accessibility, and that “wow” factor ensures your custom design will look, and work well for years to come.

Website Content


Homework time!  You didn’t think you’d get off that easy did you? While we’re hard at work planning, and designing we need you, the expert in your business to gather and create content for your website. Excellent copy, photography, and supporting media are essential to converting a website visitor into a customer. COLEwebdev works with you to develop this content, and where necessary bring in our experts to assist you in creation.


Once there is an approved design, and content has been gathered we start the production or building phase of the project. This is typically where a project gets very involved and requires both the client and the team at COLEwebdev to interact on a regular basis.


From secure certificates, to secure password practices to software hardening, COLEwebdev can help you navigate the waters of security best practices so you’re not vulnerable. COLEwebdev has defended against, and addressed many types of web security issues over the years, and offers advice and practical measures to ensure your web security meets the standard of the law and protects your customers.



Along with the core website elements, there are many supporting elements that need to be addressed prior to launch. This includes such things as email setup, visitor tracking, third-party account creation, social media setup/connections, and preparations needed to make sure the your new website is launched as seamlessly as possible.


Website Launch


At an agreed-upon date the website is launched and any marketing events are executed to announce the launch. In certain cases, we’ll plan a “soft-launch” which allows for last minutes tweaking before launch announcements are made to the general public.


Post launch tasks include tutoring, search engine registration, old website page redirects and other tasks that can only be completed when the new site is live to the world.


I love working with COLEwebdev! Whenever we ask for something, Desiree is right there to implement it or assist in any way she can. She makes us feel like our company and it’s success is important to her. It’s nice to know they are there for us!
