You are reading this article to understand how we approach and handle web design projects after the client has has agreed to proceed with a new web site design with us.
We have devised an organised and efficient procedure to ensure that web projects are completed within a reasonable amount of time and that the client understands their responsibility in relation to the design process.
In the steps below you can see who is responsible for each step and how much time we budget for each step. For example in steps 1-3 we allow the client 5 days to give us the logo, sitemap and content. If everything is given on the first day, then 5 days are saved.
For a "normal" web site project, we estimate appx 25 working days, however, days can be saved if the client gets items to us quicker.
NOTE: Our policy is that we will not proceed to the next step unless the previous step is completed.
|Step 1||Request logo from client||Client||1 day||We request a copy of the current logo in vector or transparent png format. If the client cannot provide high res version, we will take low res version and redraw. If we have to redraw, please add 2 days. This can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Step 2||Request Site map from client||Client||1 day||We request a list of the names of the pages they wish to have on their new site. see: https://www.jucra.com/forms/sitemap/|
|Step 3||Request content from client||Client||3 days||We will send a request to the client to give us the texts for the site. see: https://www.jucra.com/forms/content/|
|Step 4||Wordpress installation and setup||JUCRA||1 - 2 days||We install Wordpress on a dev domain and create the page structure listed from step 2.|
|Step 5||Site creation||JUCRA||5-10 days||We will create the site design and add the content.|
|Step 6||WP Feedback Mode||JUCRA /Client||5 days||We ask the client to review the site using WP Feedback and send us any changes needed. see: https://www.jucra.com/whmcs/index.php?rp=/knowledgebase/25/|
|Step 7||Request for launch||Client||1 - 2 days||We ask the client to sign off on the project|
|Step 8||Launch site||JUCRA||1 - 2 days||We move the site from the dev domain to live domain and make final checks.|
Days = working days
