Web: Our Process
Ready for Goldmine to create your website?
Review the details below and let's get started!
Due to the subjective nature of design, we usually prefer having our initial meeting in person to best introduce ourselves and review ideas and concepts for the new website. We will exchange contact information to ensure timely communication is made throughout the process. A timeline of completion will be determined based on Goldmine’s current production schedule, and preliminary theme suggestions will be communicated based on the client’s industry and scope of the project.
– Designing The Layout
Goldmine offers a two-tiered approach to our WordPress build-outs. For clients who need a quick launch of their new website or are looking to limit expenses, Goldmine offers a selection of Pre-Programmed Themes that can be ready within a week. We have over a dozen web themes already created that could be modified to fit your company’s needs. Choosing an existing theme saves considerable programming time and allows for a quicker turn-around.
For those clients that desire a unique and robust online presence, we can start from scratch and develop a Custom Theme for your business. While this approach requires an increased amount of design and programming effort, the finished work will become the complex and best-fit solution our client is seeking.
– Homepage Design and Approval
Goldmine begins every project with the Homepage design. This page serves as a template for the remaining pages and establishes the menu navigation, content and image placements, and the overall design of the website. Once the Homepage is uploaded, Goldmine will send notification to the client to review the page layout. Goldmine will follow-up with any design modifications and will resubmit the Homepage for client approval.
– Remaining Pages and Programming
After the client has approved the Homepage design, Goldmine creates the remaining content pages, menu navigation and programming necessary to complete the site. These pages and files are uploaded for the client to review. Once all completed items are approved by the client, Goldmine activates the hosting account and launches the pages under the client’s domain.
