Just like any other product, your website development project also goes through systematic steps and phases through its life-cycle. The idea is to make sure that as a business owner, you are able to effectively adopt each and every aspect of creating a website to ensure successful results. Let’s go through the standard process that is being adopted by most web engineers and business owners today to make sure their internet project is executed successfully and efficiently.

Website development processes when implemented in a systematic format with the help of laid down protocols facilitates higher productivity, efficiency and better results.

1. Conducting a Proper Analysis

This is obviously the first and most vital step in the entire scheme of creating your own website. When you start discussing your needs and expectations with a web Development Company, the first thing they will do is conduct a preliminary analysis of your requirement.

Since your website is going to play an integral role in your day-to-day business, it is important for your service providers to gain clarity on your industry, the needs of your target audience and role your website is going to play for your business or brand.

2. Creating Primary List of Specifications

A comprehensive list of design, content and miscellaneous elements are made. This includes the general layout of your website, the number of pages, the dynamic and static aspect of your website; specifications with respect to navigation etc. are listed. Further, industry specific requirements are also listed since that may require some technical skills and tools. After this has been approved by the client, depending on the scope of work, a formal proposal is given to the client for approval.

3. Web Designing and Development

After the first two stages are closed on by the client and the web development company, the experts and the business owners begin working on the design and development. Typically, business owners can either provide all the written material as well as some specific elements that they want to include in the website or leave it up to the service providers to create the content and incorporate other elements on their discretion. This is obviously executed on the basis of approvals at every stage.

This process can be quick or can take a very long time depending on how well the ideas of the experts and company match. The process may involve a number of changes, additions and deletions through the process to make sure that the end result is perfect.

4. Coding

The programmers begin their job by incorporating all the necessary codes without upsetting the design aspect of the website. This is crucial when your website intends to be dynamic or integrate some high-end applications to facilitate audience engagement.

Here, the developers and designers need to interact on a regular basis to make sure that neither one of their works are being effected in the process.

5. Testing and Maintenance

After these stages, the website is almost ready and needs to go into testing. After conducting an internal test and getting all the approvals from the client, you can take the website to a group of the target audience to get an unbiased review on features such as the usability, relevance, design etc. These stages are then followed by setting the website live, promoting it on the internet and setting up a schedule to ensure regular updating and maintenance.

Having followed these stages effectively you are sure to create a successful website for your business.
