So, you ask, what are you paying for?
STEP 1- Initial Consultation and Proposal
DEFINE GOALS, IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES, TARGET AUDIENCE
Information is collected and analyzed by ebluegoose. The goose team identifies
client objectives and weighs them in the context of budget and time frame.
The scope and depth of a project is apparent during this phase, and a
cost proposal is presented.
STEP 2 - Site Planning and Architecture
CREATES A PROJECT PLAN, PROVIDES TIMELINES, PLAN ACCEPTANCE
information and materials gathered from the client are organized by importance.
The project's structure begins to take shape and a prototype is created.
Most visitors to a Web site are searching for information. ebluegoose
makes that information easily accessible.
- Define the navigation & flow of the information.
- Identify necessary resources.
- Decide on the site's overall concept and layout.
3 - Design and Implementation
INTEGRATE CLIENT FEEDBACK, INCORPORATE EXISTING CLIENT GRAPHICS,
PROVIDE PROTOTYPE DESIGNS, FINALIZE SITE FLOWCHART
The project takes on form in colors, shapes, and other visual or textual
elements that incorporate the particular elements developed in the definition
and architecture phases. In the design phase, a project acquires its look
and feel, where the creativity and the visual metaphors that support and
enhance the architecture of the information are devised. Once the navigation
and design prototype is approved the site moves into production. During
the implementation phase the site comes alive and interactive elements
are added. All of the sections are constructed and the content is added,
as well as any necessary programming or enhancements.
- Decide upon the overall look and feel of the Web site.
- Optimize and format materials for use on the Web
- Implement color palettes, photographs, illustrations, fonts, and any
- Implement the design as specified in the design and architecture phases.
4 - Testing and Analysis
INTERACTIVE CAPABILITIES, FINALIZE SITE INFRASTRUCTURE,
DEVELOP THE DATABASE, BETA TEST THE SITE
the production of the site is complete it is tested on the web. ebluegoose
will ensure that all interactive components are working properly. In addition,
ebluegoose will test the site on multiple platforms using different Web
browsers, resolutions, color depths, and connection rates ensuring that
the final product is accessible to the widest range of Internet users.
Any inconsistencies and errors will be corrected at this time.
5 - Launch and Follow-up
MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT, SEARCH ENGINE REGISTRATION
After rigorous testing the site will be made live to the public. After
the site has been launched ebluegoose will meet with the client's team
to review the initial reactions to the site, review the first months'
hit reports and plan any additional development, maintenance, or training.
