WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

How will you best communicate your story on the web? Designs by Sandbox specializes in building websites on a WordPress platform, with clean and easy-to-navigate design, to deliver your message to the general public efficiently. Here’s how…

During our initial meeting, we’ll explore the following topics:

Who is your primary target audience? Who is your secondary target audience? Let’s step into the shoes of each of those users, and decide what kind of information they will seek when visiting your website.

Websites are dynamic. What is a realistic expectation for the frequency with which you will be updating your new website? How will your website draw the attention of your target audiences, and encourage them to return repeatedly?

After this initial meeting, the Designs by Sandbox team will submit a proposal. Development of your website is a three phase process.

Phase One: Planning & Research

After exploring the questions addressed in our initial meeting, the Designs by Sandbox team will outline a plan for designing and building your new website, and will research the tools available to support the proposed design.

Phase Two: Conceptual Design

Designs by Sandbox will present two concepts for the overall feel of your new website. Both website concepts presented will include homepage, typical interior page, and navigation schema.

Phase Three: Design Development

Based on your feedback during Phase 2, development will proceed to design and build your new website within a folder of our own website. Adjustments can be made in this fully-functional development site before going live to your own domain.

Domain name registry and web hosting services are outside the scope of our services. Clients are encouraged to research their options, and the Designs by Sandbox team is happy to offer our opinion of available services, based on our experience.

Sit in the sandbox with us and explore the possibilities for your business. Share nicely.

SANDBOX SUPPORT SERVICES

When developing a new website, we first work with a client in the sandbox, and then we hand that client the keys to their new sandcastle, and give them the ability to manage their own website independently.

However, with time… if the sands happen to shift in a way that seems too difficult to manage, we have our trusty red sand shovel ready to help.

Websites are dynamic communication tools, and new technologies are constantly evolving. Some clients are quite comfortable with WordPress technology. Others are less comfortable.

Our goal with Sandbox Support Services is to offer technical support and educational resources that continue to empower each of our clients. Some clients may be interested in an annual service plan for technical support, and others may wish to consider an a-la-carte service plan. If you are interested in either, please contact us to discuss further.

As an extension of Designs by Sandbox, we’ve created a new website dedicated to educating our website clients — Sandbox Support Services. Be sure to subscribe if you would like to receive email notifications when new information is available.
