Score big with a custom sports website
Our team of specialists strives to gain a comprehensive understanding of your business and its objectives. During the kickoff call and discovery phase, we will focus on defining the project brief and scope, while also accessing any existing branding assets. By taking into account the needs of your target audience, we will create a website that not only looks and feels great, but also delivers the right content to the right people.
Our first step is to conduct thorough keyword research, analyse data, and perform a UX review. Based on this information, we create a sitemap that is tailored to your specific needs. Our goal is to ensure that your website's structure is designed with the user in mind. By mapping out a user journey, we can ensure that visitors can navigate your site in an intuitive and seamless way. This approach also allows us to account for any functional specifications, features, and technologies that may be necessary for your site to function at its best.
After gathering all the necessary information, we proceed to integrate your company's branding with our previous findings. This enables us to create wireframes and UI designs that are optimised for both mobile and desktop platforms. By doing so, we provide you with a sneak peek of your website's overall appearance and functionality, while also identifying potential issues with user flow. Once you give us the green light on the design, we move on to the development phase.
At this stage, we construct responsive page templates that bring your website to life, based on the graphic elements that have been approved by you, the client. Our team then proceeds to conduct a seamless content migration, uploading your valuable content to the relevant locations on the website. This ensures that your website is not only visually appealing but also fully functional and user-friendly.
After the website is constructed, we conduct preliminary and final assessments of its technical components and functionality including browser and device testing, quality assurance (QA) and user acceptance testing (UAT) that ensures your website is fully functional and user-friendly before it goes live.
It is crucial to regularly update your website, both in terms of technical maintenance and content creation. Our team of specialists is well-equipped to assist in handling these tasks, possessing a deep understanding of the necessary changes that need to be made, including updates and bug management. We are here to keep your website running smoothly and effectively.
