Web Design Process
Getting started on the creation of your new website is simple with SmartWeb Dentist. You can
get started on the process by filling out the Registration Form below. Our friendly customer
service representatives are available 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns. The next step
in the process is to fill out the Design Brief, also found below. This will give us an idea of what
your vision for your practise is, so that we can develope a website that accurately represents
your services, team and values.
This is a general overview of how the design process will typically go.
Web Design Brief
Once we get the green light to proceed our team will request that you complete our design brief. Please be thoughtful when answering, as an accurate detailed brief will ensure the best possible design outcome for your website. This is actually the most important part of the entire project. Getting this stage correct is key.
Mock-up (Digital Draft)
We design your website from scratch. We start with a blank canvas and create it completely from the ground up. During this stage we rely on your feedback as we present you with the design mock-up (Digital Draft).
Mock-up Revision (Digital Draft)
We supply up to a maximum of 3 revisions (further revisions can still be made at a later date but will be billed at our hourly rate). Once a final design is approved for all pages/sections, we move on to the next stage.
Once your team has approved the overall look and feel of the design, we get started on building out the actual pages. This is the stage where the code is written. and when we setup and integrate any database, CMS (Content Management System) or e-Commerce components. This stage usually takes the longest and is complete only after thorough user and bug testing.
Once all pages are developed and the content is in place on the website, you will need to make a comprehensive review of the website to address any last minute tweaks or changes. Upon final approval of the website, SmartWeb will upload the new website to the site’s web server, thus making it “live” on the web. At this point, the website contract is completed and any additional changes or tweaks thereafter would be billed at the hourly rate.
