Our proven website design process that ensures you get a modern website that is fully completed by the end of the project.
When building a website with us, know that we focus on a process, but expect an experience. The PROCESS ensures we meet all your needs and expectations. Our goal is to provide a great EXPERIENCE, which means you should expect on-time delivery, routine follow-ups, full communication and a satisfaction guarantee.
We hear from people all the time that have had bad experiences with previous "website designers". Either those designers failed to provide a site based on the clients vision, failed to complete a portion of the website, or didn't do anything at all after being paid. Our process provides expectations up front and helps us stay on track to ensure completion. Our happy clients are proof that this process works.
We build all websites with the user of the website in mind - your clients & customers. We not only design all websites to be viewed on personal computers, but tablets and smart phones too.

Phase 1: Analysis
The first step is always about information gathering and learning about the website purpose, goals and target audience. Our project managers work directly with you to gather this information.
Phase 2: Planning
A plan includes a definition of the site map, structure and technologies that we’re about to use. At this phase we also set milestones and coordinate regular follow-ups.
Phase 3: Design
The design of the website is important. We want your new website to match your vision and your brand. We utilize several strategies to help meet this goal.
Phase 4: Content
A very important part of the process is choosing the right texts, photos or videos – all optimized not only for your visitors, but also for search engines. This is where we create content to emphasize your industry expertise and services/offerings.
Phase 5: Development
Here we actually CREATE the website using several technologies, frameworks and code. While this is phase 5, this process generally starts earlier. We strive to provide a "rough draft" of the home page within 10 business days.
Phase 6: Testing
We test all the technical features, like code and scripts, compatibility with major browsers, but also we ask ourselves if the website really fulfills its purpose.
Phase 7: Deployment
After we launch the site, our job is definitely not done yet! We always monitor what’s happening after the start, enabling us to fix any possible deficiencies. And if you want, we can also manage the future maintenance and updates for you.
"The team at LongPeak Marketing was very easy to work with. They graciously made many design changes as I tried to figure out which layout and design options I liked best on both desktop and mobile devices! I was able to learn a lot about the proper ways of SEO and have been happy to see our ranking steadily improve on google. Overall, I was very satisfied with LongPeak Marketing for my website design and have already referred them to others looking at designing a website!"
