Outlier's Web Development Process
What’s that they say about a man with a plan? Ok, we don’t remember either but we do know the value of taking a strategic approach to web development. Over our 13 year history, we've built our web development process to ensure great results every time.
Here's how we do it.
Step 1: We Get to Know You
We make it our job to get to know you and your business, find out what you most want to accomplish, and what may be holding you back. This includes deep listening on our part followed by reflecting to confirm we've really heard you.
What You'll Get: A project brief that reflects the goals of the project, and a development plan that will help us get there.
Step 2: We Get to Know Your Audience
We take the time to understand your audience, too, so we can see how they currently interact with your content, as well as discover what really matters most to them. Does it match your expectation, or are you missing the mark and need a reset?
Either way, we’ll map the user’s journey so your potential and current customers get what they need so you can keep them, and your business, happy.
What you’ll get: A project roadmap that includes both current and target audience data plus user journey maps that we’ll use to guide our design decisions.
Step 3: We Get to Work on Usability and Design
Once we understand your objectives, we’re ready to roll up our sleeves to design a site that makes meeting them easy.
Outlier's web design includes not only the latest aesthetic trends but also the usability best practices that ensure your site will function the way it needs to so your users enjoy the experience.
What you’ll get: Two to three thoughtful design options to choose from for your final web design.
Step 4: We Dig in to Site Architecture & Coding
Once a design is selected, Outlier's back-end developers will get to work building out your website’s architecture before delving deeply into site development.
In this step, we create all of the site’s functionality, building out features before implementing design and building out code.
This stage is topped off by multiple rounds of QA and testing, so we know your final deliverable won’t have any surprises in store for you.
Step 5: We (Gasp!) Continue to Support You Throughout the Life of Your Website
You know those agencies that stop answering the phone as soon as your site launches? We aren't that agency.
You'll have us on your side whenever you need us, from implementing the occasional security update to adding custom features that allow your website to grow and evolve with your business.
What you’ll get: A fully functional website that looks great, offers easy navigation, and custom features that help your business stand out from the herd.
