Web design process

Here you can see our process and average timescales for our template website design and our custom website design.

Website design flow by aprompt website developers

Our process is the same whether you choose our low cost websites on a Pay as you go basis (CMS Express template website design), or Pay as you go CMS Premium custom website design or fully custom website design for CMS, eCommerce or web app development. 

With every website design we create, you will receive great customer service and expert advice for the life of your website.

Web design timescales: Pay as you go websites

When placing your order for a 'Pay as you go website', please use these timescales as a guide for website design start and completion dates.

Phase 1 - Project discovery

Includes order placement for all packages: 1 day

We’ll discuss the best package for your needs and your target market. Your order is then confirmed, a setup fee invoice is issued with the D/D form to complete. After your payment is received and your D/D is set up, we can start your website project. Please provide your logo as a high quality jpeg, PDF or EPS file. A design brief is taken for Premium Website Packages.

Phase 2 - Express website design

For CMS Express Packages: 1 day

You can choose your preferred design from the ones we will supply. Colours are changed to match your brand image as directed by you and your logo is added. Up to 1 round of revisions are included - any further revisions are chargeable.

Phase 2 - Premium website design

For CMS Premium Packages: 2 weeks

The website home page is designed, as per your design brief, and provided to you as a ‘mock-up’ ready for your comments and approval. Up to 3 rounds of revisions are included - any further revisions are chargeable. The design is then amended if required before a final sign-off.

Phase 3 - Develop and deploy

For CMS Express Packages: 1 week
For CMS Premium Packages: 2-3 weeks

The website is built with the powerful Content Management System and optional Blog and Gallery and loaded live on our development server ready for you to edit and add pages or check the content if you have asked us to add it for you. (See fully managed website package).

Your monthly payment will begin from the date this website link is emailed to you and the 1st month payment will be calculated pro rata. Thereafter the full rate will be due on 1st of each month collected by D/D. We will launch your site live when you’re ready!

(All timescales exclude public holidays)

Web design timescales: Custom websites

When placing your order for a custom website, please use these timescales as a guide for website design start and completion dates. When placing your order, we will confirm the project start date and completion date. Please note that when a project is ordered the work required has to be scheduled in to a development window that is available. A design meeting will take place at the time of order or just before so we can ensure we provide you a design that suits your target market and your business. 

Phase 1 - Project discovery

Timeframe: 1 day

We will discuss what type of functions would be best for your target market and provide you a written proposal, detailing the features that you will get in your new website ready for approval. You will be given lots of down-to-earth advice and expert guidance throughout the entire process. So whether this is your first website or your 100th website, we will always be here for you. Any questions you may have will be answered in non-tech speak (unless you want tech-speak of course!) and we pride ourselves in giving you the very best in customer service all the time. 

Phase 2 - Website design briefing

Includes order placement. Timeframe: 1 day

At this stage we will take a detailed design brief and after you place your order and payment for your deposit, where applicable, is received, we will start your website design. Any images that are required in the overall design (i.e. on a banner) should be sent via email or if you would like us to source images for you we are happy to do this. 

Phase 3 – First stage web design

Timeframe: 1-3 weeks

During the design phase, the home page of the website is designed for your target market and provided to you as a ‘mock-up’ ready for your comments and approval. The design is then amended if required before a final sign-off. Further pages - dependent on the type of website - are then designed and provided ready for final approval. 

Phase 4 – Website develop and deploy

Timeframe: 4-9 weeks

The website is built and loaded live on our development server ready for you to edit and add pages or check the content if you have asked us to add it for you.

Development times don't take into account public holidays. Timescales quoted are the time taken to have a fully working, tested website loaded on to our development server ready for you to populate the site with your own text and images/check loaded content. Hosting and website backup services start at this time also. If you have a specific deadline, please let us know in advance.
