Step Four - Design Process
Clients may have as much or as little involvement in the design process as they would like. We listen closely to your wishes and expectations before letting our artistic ability and professional software do the rest.
Once the designer is happy with their first draft, or if they feel they need your input, your fully operational website will be displayed on a temporary sub-domain. We will then listen closely to your feedback and make the necessary amendments. You may be happy with your first draft or you may wish to offer suggestions and request alterations and see further drafts.
Step Five - Written Content
Based on the consultation, market research and SEO requirements, our experienced writers will incorporate all of the necessary elements, such as your target audience and key selling points, to create a written document of an exceptionally high standard.
Step Six - Proofreading

For an additional fee you may also have your website proofread by an independent proofreading company.
Step Seven - Web Hosting
Your website will be hosted on Vidahost’s extremely reliable and powerful servers.
Once your website is completed and has been hosted at the required domain we are happy to setup company e-mail addresses and make small amendments to ensure your services are in good working order.
We understand that many clients may have little to no knowledge of web design, web hosting and other Internet marketing strategies. Therefore every effort is made to ensure the purchase and future maintenance of any of the services we provide is as pleasant and effortless as possible. We continuously keep abreast of the ever-changing legislation to ensure we are providing our clients with the most up-to-date, secure and efficient service possible.
