Our Web Design Process
Circle Digital takes meticulous care to make sure that
your web site is designed to meet or exceed your expectations.
We listen carefully to your ideas and goals for your site and
create a site that you not only will be proud of, but will
help you achieve the success that you desire.
Initial Consultation (free, no obligation):
We will discuss your overall goals and
define your target market. We will talk about the look and
feel of the site, and design guidelines such as color,
layout and navigation.
A timeline and work schedule will be discussed at this point,
and a plan to provide us with graphics and copy. During this
consultation you will assign us a contact person at your company.
We will also discuss the pros and cons of an HTML and/or Flash
site, and whether a Content Management
System (CMS) would be
an advantageous feature for your site.
Other options, such as building
an automated Newsletter subcription page, and an Email Newsletter
Campaign can be discussed.
At this stage we can also provide you with a ballpark budget,
and discuss any other concerns that you might have.
Need a Writer?
Writing content for a web site is a specialized skill set,
and Circle Digital has years of experince in writing both original
content, or helping to re-write your promo materials to be
ideal for a web environment.
Based on our Initial Consultation, we will provide for you
with some design layout possibilities of your homepage. These
design layouts will be created using Photoshop without any
live links. A navigation map will also be provided upon your
request. We will discuss and decide on any changes and refinements
in regard to layout and design. We will solicit your approval
before developing the prototype web site.
We will post the entire mock up web site for your
private viewing. Prototypes include all graphics and text but
allow for clients to make minor modifications. All pages will
be fully navigable. Graphics will have been optimized for fast
loading. Web pages will be designed to fit the typical users
screen. We will solicit your approval.
We will test the entire site in all popular browsers such
as Internet Explorer and Firefox on both PC and Mac platforms
to ensure all components are working correctly. The web site
will be available for your private viewing on our server. We
will solicit your final approval before publishing your web
site to the internet.
Implementation of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) features:
As part of our web design process, we will at no additional
charge submit your web site to the major search engines directories.
In designing your web site, we implement Search-Engine-Friendly
features, such as making it easy for search engines to index
your site, chosing appropriate KEYWORDS and phrases, placing
them in the TITLE, DESCRIPTION and KEYWORDS tags of your site,
and including keywords in the content of the body text.
Publishing your Web Site
Once all the above steps have been approved and implemented,
we will then publish your site at your specific Domain Name
Please note that Domain Name Registration and web site Hosting
are two separate processes, and you are free to choose your
own qualified Registrar (for your Domain Name), and also your
choice of Hosting companies (where you park your site on the
web). Although some companies offer Domain Name Registration
and Hosting as a package, it is more common that they are separate.
If you require assistance in registering a Domain Name, we
can assist you.

services, and we will be happy to discuss the advantages of

completed. Whether you need minor updates to your site, internet
marketing ideas, search optimization or just want to learn,
we are here for you.
Furture Search Engine Optimization Action Plans:
Everyone wants to be at the top
of the search engines. It takes more than just registering
your site once with the various search engines. It requires
consistent updates to your keywords, meta tags, and text of
your website and reregistration with the search engine. Search
engines change their methods of operation and how they rank
sites. We offer tailored strategies to get your site to the
top and maintain your position.
