TSL Marketing has a tested website development process that encompasses all of the necessary steps you should take to make your website rock-solid and immediately make great impressions.
Before embarking upon any website build, determine what the goal of your website will be and how you want your visitors to interact with the site. Here are a few questions to ask:
Once you have a clear vision for your site's overall goals, the next step is to build the vision for who you want to interact with your site and how your site will help them in their buyer's journey.
Marketing to your website visitors requires an intentional and well-thought content strategy. Our teams work to bring order to the content and overall information architecture of the site to provide visitors and your ideal customer personas a great experience. Here are a few items to reflect upon when you're building your customer personas:
Once we have an understanding of your buyer persona and unique value propositions, we then build out the website's information architecture. This is brought to life through a simple wireframe and navigation map design.
The wireframe is a bare-bones representation of the various page elements of the site. The navigation map will show the various points of entry into the pages and sub-pages of your new website.
This phase provides an opportunity to better visualize a user’s experience and to get an overview of the conversion paths weaved into the site architecture.
After mapping out the basic site elements and site navigation, we start to dive deeper into the website's design elements. Your website is the digital flagship for your brand. Our team works to align the site design with your brand vision.
Based on your conversation with our design team, they will work to build design elements around the wireframe and provide you with a design comp draft to review.
We begin developing your site in a test area once we have an approved website design. TSL has a comprehensive quality assurance process that we follow to help assure a smooth website launch. You'll have the opportunity to test and navigate the site pre-launch so that you can sign off that the site is ready to go live.
