Small Business Website Development Process

How our small business website development services work

Our process begins with a consultation to understand your business goals and needs, as well as what needs to change about the ways you’re currently showing up online. We will then work with you to design and develop a custom website tailored to your specific audience, industry, and goals.

Our Process

Website Development

Step 1


To get started, we’ll talk about your goals for launching a new site, as well as what needs to change about the ways you’re currently showing up online. We’ll also ensure you have a clearly established target market and value proposition. These statements tell us who your site should speak to and how you serve your customers.

Step 2

Visual Design

Do you have a complete brand identity? If not, we’ll create one for you before designing your site. Your brand identity is further developed by our graphic designer in the form of website mood boards, which set the visual look and feel for the site.

Step 3

Sitemap, Copy, and SEO

Our writers create a sitemap, which is a complete listing of all the pages that will be on your site. We also develop a list of target keywords to be integrated throughout the site. Finally, we’re ready to draft copy for all pages.

Step 4


Our developer builds the first version of your site in WordPress, ensuring that all copy, visual elements, plugins, and special features are in place. All of our sites are built from the ground up with SEO and accessibility in mind.

Step 5

Quality Assurance

We test and review every inch of the site to ensure that there are no errors, missing commas, or unflattering photos. Clients receive two complete rounds of review prior to launch.

Step 6


Once you’re completely satisfied with the site, we’re ready to go live! We’ll launch the site at your URL, testing all forms and features to ensure a smooth transition.
