I have been to meetings where, more than once, it has been suggested that we skip the wireframe stage and roll right into the design.
Is it time to give your website a much-needed facelift, or an entirely new one, so that your online presence is presentable?
You’ve done your homework. You’ve tackled leads. You’ve gone out there and gotten your hands dirty. You’ve earned respect. You’ve garnered interest.
Interest that leads directly to your website. You know the one. It looks like it’s straight out of 1999, and it’s slower than a snail. It drives away any traffic that finds it. It’s gotten to the point that you dread having to hand out your business card.
But you don’t know the best way to go about designing a new one, and you want to avoid hiring a slapdash team that hastily puts together a website that doesn’t quite match your vision. Maybe it doesn’t look bad, but it doesn’t reflect who you are and what you’re doing.
You need a team that will work with you from the ground up. You need us.
If your company is ready for a new website (or redesign), one complete with a strategic plan that integrates your branding, then you’re ready for the full package. We’ll organize any content, media and social profiles, package them into a website that becomes a powerful business tool.
It’s a full online strategy that looks to the future.
We’ll dive deep and figure out the needs of your company, laying the foundation of your website as well as what you want to do with it. While we’ll need to learn as much as possible about your business goals, marketing objectives, industry, competitors and marketplace, we’re mostly interested in where you want to go – not where you are currently.
We take our findings from the discovery session, build them into wireframes, and use that as a reference for the rest of the development process. We’ll toss these work-in-progress documents back and forth a few times while we refine them with realistic tactics. We want to have a clear plan of action before it even starts. So there’s more, lots more. After we agree on goals for your site, we’ll figure out strategies and tactics and lay those out in a technical document of features for the website.
As they say, content is king, and so this is where websites can often get stuck. People are always underestimating how long it’s going to take to have anything written. We’ll use our wireframes as a reference to see the necessary content. And then the fun can begin. Together, we’ll create a collaborative brand vision where we can share our design ideas, inspirations and preferences. We’ll gain clarity on the direction so that the design truly resonates with your brand.
Here it is – the website. After all that prep work, we’ll have it ready for you, one built with the rock solid WordPress framework that will be a cinch to control. We’ll test it and play with it to make sure it is exactly what you want.
What good is a website if you don’t know how to use it to do what you want to do. So, after it’s built, we’ll meet again for website training. During this time, you’ll immediately start integrating your content with our one-on-one support to ensure you come out 100% comfortable controlling your website updates. Together, we’ll put the final touches on everything and polish it.

How do I get started?
If you’re interested in booking a discovery call to see if this package is for you, give us a call at (604) 724-7103.
How simple is the web process?
After 50% payment, we can schedule an hour-long to dive deep into your business and figure who you really are and what you want.
What about domain names and hosting?
Every single person is different, and that is what we’ll figure out in our initial call. We can take care of this for you – transferring the name or getting a new one.
Do you supply content?
Content is always the hardest part of creating a site because only you know what you need to say, and it always takes longer than anticipated. We do work with someone who can edit and write great content and can help on an hourly basis.
Can I make updates to content myself?
Yes, absolutely! WordPress is built for that and we’ll train you at the end after we plan your content strategies.
Can you get me to the top of a Google search?
SEO (search engine optimization) is a big thing. We’ll set up the standard plugins for you, but you’ll have to go to a specialist if you want ranking. SEO is a world unto itself.
How long does it take?
This process generally takes about 3 months from beginning to end depending on how fast written content is completed (this is ALWAYS the number one reason development is slowed down).

The cost to properly plan, research, design and develop a professional WordPress website is a lot of work.
Two of the most popular hosting platforms today are YouTube and Vimeo and they’re both great options.
Choosing the right WordPress developer to create a professional website is like getting married.
