We will meet with you to discuss what features you would like to have for your new website. This meeting can be setup at either your office or at the Xpression Web's office. During this meeting we will discuss the website menu structure you would like, your colour preferences, your logo, added features you would like, websites you like and the style you would like for your new website.

Please be prepared to provide us with the following:

  • Your logo (in as high of resolution as possible) plus any images you would like to have included on your website.
  • Text you would like to include on your pages
  • If you have a domain in place: Please provide us with your details (username, password etc) so we can modify your domain name servers as required. If you don't have a domain, this can be purchased for you.
  • We provide our clients with unlimited hosting plans, however, if you have website hosting in place through another company, please provide us with your details (username, password etc) so we can access your account and make sure that this hosting meets with our requirements.
  • Any marketing materials you currently have in place. (Business cards, Brochures, etc,)
  • A 50% deposit will be required at this meeting. (Payment terms: E-transfer or Cheque)

Step 3 - The Development Stage

While your site is being built it will be placed in lock down, only accessible by password. Your new website will stay in this locked down mode until the site is approved and tested. Your new website's style and structure will be determined based on your input and colour choices.

A username and password will be created for you which will give you full access to your new site throughout the design process. Once the final design is approved we will start to develop your new site.

Step 4 - The Revision Stage

During this stage, the initial text and images will be reviewed and any modifications made. Font, Heading Styles, background colours, image resizing and grammar and spelling will be checked.

Changes can be submitted via email or clients can make front-end edits as required. Final Approval from the client will be required for all content / images.

Step 5 - The Testing Stage

Tests will also be performed to ensure website has no issues with Desktop computers, laptops, large computer screens, tablets and smart phones.

Step 6 - Search Engine Optimization
