Our Design Methodology

Our highly acclaimed design processes allows us to deliver high quality products and develop outstanding customer relationships. Designed with you in mind, our goal is to educate on the key factors in building your website. Many of our clients that require a re-design of their existing site have been disappointed in the results of the previous web project. From analyzing the factors that caused the projects to be unsuccessful, we have determined six primary ingredients to build an optimum website:

  • Business Goals
  • Design (Layout)
  • Interactivity
  • Traffic
  • E-Commerce
  • Maintenance

 

 
Business Goals
Determining the purpose of your website is more than a general statement. There are many questions to ask that will require some thought and effort. In this stage of developing your website you will determine the state of your industry, competitive analysis, target market & consumer behavior, your site goals and objectives. Although most will have a general idea of these topics; it's important to understand the difference between business-as-usual and business online! During your FREE consultation we will help guide you through this critical and most important stage of developing your website.
 
Design
The layout & design of your website will make the first impression on your site visitors. What do you want it say? Will they be impressed, excited, intrigued ... or will the site look like everything else on the world wide web? The design of your website communicates your identity, branding, and level of professionalism! Our design team will help bring your website to life and ensure you make a lasting online impression.
 
Interactivity
Having an interactive website is what will keep visitors on your page. Combining interactivity is important in determining how your visitors interact with your overall message. Some features include slide-shows, music, a blog, video/multimedia, and much much more. Depending on your goals, you may want the site to be an online resource, entertaining, social, or simply informative. What interactive tools are appropriate and will fit best on your website? Our experienced team of experts can help you select the proper tools!
 
Traffic
How many visitors do you hope to get on your site? How many visitors give the results your looking for; did they fill out your form, are they reading the pages, are they purchasing products? Traffic analytic tools are very important when developing your online marketing strategy and measuring the success of your website. No one wants a site with a high bounce rate - in other words - people visit your site and immediately click away to another website. Traffic tools will tell you if your visitors are new or returning, how they found your website, and much more. ETECH Design Studio will get you from a "parked" site and shift you into full gear!
 
E-Commerce
Purchasing goods and services on your website is convenient and easy. From simple transactions such as service payments to having a secure online store, e-commerce is a definite must-have for all websites. An e-commerce website is a great way increase revenue or earn income - the use of affiliate marketing allows you to earn commission with no inventory! Banner-ads, amazon merchant, and other affiliate programs can be a gold mine when combined with the right strategy. Let us show you how!
 
Maintenance

Once your website has launched, it's time to develop a plan for updates. Determining the best maintenance option is based on how frequent you want to change the content, the size of your website, and your technical level of expertise. Updates can be difficult without an IT department or having a web guru at your fingertips. When selecting a maintenance package you have the choice of:

  • Contracting an hourly maintenance service plan; idea for infrequent updates and for those with little to no technical knowledge.
  • Using desktop software that enables you to collaboratively author, review, and publish web content while maintaining site integrity — without learning HTML or other web programming languages; requires minimal training but idea for small-medium sites with text/photo only updates.
  • Building a custom or packaged content management system for live online updates; requires some training but idea for large sites, frequent updates, and site layout changes. 
Maintenance is also important in determining your hosting arrangements; while some hosting options provide basic features, your site may require optimum security and the proper "plug-ins" to function properly. Let us help you determine the best maintenance solution!
