Why Choose Afmanuk Designs?
Afmanuk Designs believes that the biggest motivator in life is doing what you love. Here at Afmanuk Designs we have a passion for making websites and making clients happy. This page tells you a little about the process we go through to achieve the professional websites we love making so that they fit your needs.
Knowing What You Want
Before a finalised quote can be made we need to get as much information about you and/or your business as we possibly can so we can get ideas of how you may want your website to look and what features to include. This can be gathered in various ways: phone, instant messaging, email or if you're based locally a one to one meeting can be arranged. During these meetings or conversations we will try to find out what you want out of your website such as a news system for example. We also try to find out what colour schemes and layout ideas you have, because if you have no initial ideas it'll be like the blind leading the blind. But don't worry too much if you haven't got any ideas at this stage, the information we gather about you and/or your business can help us suggest ideas and hope that you like them. This meeting is also a chance for you to ask any questions you may have to do with the website.
Developing The Site
So now the quote has been decided and you agree to work with us. We will ask you for a deposit, usually 50% of the final quote. Next comes the development stage. Here we will develop all features you wish to include within your site like the news system mentioned earlier. This obviously comes before the design and implementation of the website as this is going to be the most important and hardest part of the website to make.
Designing The Site
This stage is where the design comes in. An initial design is made using professional image software and shown to you to make sure that we're on the same wavelength of what you want your website to look like. Of course, if you are not happy with our initial design just tell us so and tell us what you would like changing, after all if you don't tell us, we won't know.
Are You Happy With It?
Now you're happy with the design we work our hardest to make sure it looks very similar, if not the same, in the web browser. Naturally being thorough workers, we make sure that your site looks the same in most browsers on today's market. We also read through the content you have provided and take into consideration the nature of your website to develop keywords and a description for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) to attract as many viewers to your website as possible.
Need Hosting? No Problem
Hopefully you have read the information on our homepage stating that we offer to create a hosting account and register a top-level domain for free, provided you pay the fees that the hosting company and/or the domain registration company require. Of course if you already have a server or shared hosting account your details will be requested so that we can upload your website and make it 'live'. Also if you have read our homepage you will know that we will also install an easy to update system.
Over To You!
Finally we hand it over to you and you pay us the remaining amount for our services. But as a little extra to help you on your way, we try to visit your website everyday for the next two weeks to make sure everything is working fine.
