web design process - how it works

Author: Cariad Web Design Date: 9 Mar 2022

At Cariad Web Design, we pride ourselves not only on the quality of our pay monthly websites, but also on the excellent standard of our customer service. We want to ensure that the web build process is as smooth and seamless as possible for you, and that your new WordPress website is the perfect fit for your business. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from your Cariad Web Design experience.

Choose a package

The first step on the journey to a sparkling new website is to head over to our pricing page and select a package. There are two package options available, one for a small business (with eCommerce available), and one for a small online store (eCommerce included). Choose the one that is best suited to your business needs, and from here you can start building out your package. 

You can choose your favourite website template (designed by our fabulous web design team) and select any add-ons you require. Add-ons include domain purchase, firewall, logo design, and ongoing support and maintenance for your website. Once you have built your ideal website package, you simply hit the checkout page, complete the one-off signup payment and begin your monthly plan. Once you’ve checked out, we will be in touch via email within 24 hours. 

Meet the team

We will ask you to fill out a briefing form which will help us to understand a bit more about your business and what your perfect website will look like. We will also ask you to send over any text and images you would like included on your new website. Once we have received this, the next step will be a Zoom meeting so that you can meet your web build team and we can answer any questions you may have. This is where we get to know your brand and what your website requirements are, such as brand colours and any functionality features you require. 

If you are struggling with writing text for your web pages, we offer copywriting as an add-on service. We can also help you to source royalty-free images for your website if you are starting a business from scratch, so don’t worry too much about not having enough content. 

The web build

After the briefing meeting and once we have received the content for your new website, the next step is the web build itself!  

Our team of experienced web developers will build your website on a staging site using the information you have provided in terms of how you want the site to look and function. Once we have all the information we need, the first draft of the website will be completed in as little as ten days. We will then send you a link to the site so that you can review it and request any changes you would like us to make. 

Launch

Once you have reviewed your website and are 100% satisfied with how it looks, one of our SEO experts will make sure the website is optimised to be indexed and crawled by Google. Then the website will go live! 

WordPress training 

The beauty of a WordPress website is that it’s remarkably easy to make edits and add new pages or features. Once your website has been launched we will arrange a one hour Zoom training session with one of our web developers who will run through the WordPress Content Management System (CMS) with you. You’ll be an expert in no time! 

Even though you’ll be fully trained to make edits and updates to your website yourself, don’t be a stranger! If you have any questions about WordPress or decide once the site has been built that you would like to purchase some more add-on features, we are always an email or phone call away, and are more than happy to help.
