THE PROCESS

Below is the step-by-step process of building your website. While all these steps are important it’s extremely important that you start with a good website hosting company.

1

Web Host Server Setup

Tweaked for speed and security, including and DNS changes. Also things like SSL certificate, PHP version and variables as well as backups (if applicable), staging area (if applicable), caching, email addresses, etc.

2

Install WordPress

Including setting up the database manually if needed, and configuring site settings for things like URL structure, discussion/comment options, company info, admin users, etc.

3

Install & Configure Security Plugins

This is a critical first step to make sure your site is secure from the moment it’s installed. Includes anti-spam setup, firewall, limit user logins, etc.

4

Install & Configure
Divi Theme

Including things like your logo, custom color palette, fonts, and other global settings. If custom functions are required, a child theme will be installed.

5

Install Additional Plugins

For your specific needs and requirements this might include things like SEO, contact forms/integration, site speed/caching, image compression, analytics tracking, etc.

6

Install WooCommerce

If eCommerce is needed, WooCommerce is installed along with many additional plugins for things like shipping and payments. A few test (or real) products/product categories are added.

7

Initial Setup

I typically start by adding all the pages to the site without any content. Then, make the navigation menus I think will be needed. This might also include setting up blog categories and/or page hierarchies.

8

Design Header & Footer

Using your color palette, I begin designing the header and footer including things like your logo, menus, buttons, CTA’s, etc. making sure everything is polished for mobile devices.

9

Home Page Design

The home page is usually next and designed with your branding, calls to action, mock-up imagery and layout, etc. Design elements here will play a role throughout the site.

10

Inner Page Design

The rest of the pages follow after the home page design. Pages like About, Contact, etc. It is possible that different layouts may be needed for pages like blogs, portfolios, product, and category pages, etc.

11

If ECommerce Is Yes

I’ll customize the Cart, Shop, My Account, product category, and product pages. This includes custom child theme files, for the cart and checkout pages, that helps with conversions. And of course, we test, test, test.

12

Go Live

We go live with your new website and test everything one last time. Add tracking codes like Google Analytics or Facebook Pixel. You make your mark in the world.
