How The Warlocks Work With You
Marketing Agency Timelines & Procedures
Working with most agencies to create your website can be a difficult, pricey, and convoluted process. At Website Warlocks we make the setup simple. We pride ourselves on creating the highest quality websites and meeting our deadlines, with transparency being key. We work with you to create realistic objectives and goals that we know from experience will be manageable for everyone involved. Most importantly though, we know that understanding your individual style and unique passions is critical in aiding us to develop your new website, so we make sure our very first step in the process is simply getting to know you better. After years of honing and refining our craft, we have established a tried and true process, humbly referred to as “Our Formula”, of what you can generally expect when working with us to develop your new website. To give you an idea of what that looks like, we have broken up each step of that process into stages and included an outline of those details for reference below:
Stage 1: Introduction
This is where we all have an opportunity to get to know one another a little better, discuss your goals and objectives, and determine what it is the Warlocks can do to help you.
Stage 2: Discovery & Research
Shortly following the introductory discussion, we will dive right into learning, more specifically, what it is that you want and don’t want, and what you have seen that stands out to you also, as well as begin researching all of your available resources to gain an even better understanding of you and your brand.
Stage 3: Planning & Strategy
Once a strong understanding of all of these critical details has been reached, we will work with you via whatever means are best (phone calls, emails, video calls, etc.) in order to establish a timeline and plan to move forward.
Stage 4: Contract Review & Approval
It’s at this point where we will deliver a detailed timeline of the website development process along with a copy of the contract, which will be carefully designed for your unique needs, based on our previous discussions, and contain an outline of the exact cost of the project, for your review and approval.
Stage 5: Asset & Content Collection
Once the contract has been approved, we will begin right away to collect assets and content (images, videos, credentials, written copy, etc.).
Stage 6: SEO & Sitemap Creation
Almost simultaneously to collecting assets and content, we will begin the process of piecing together your sitemap (layout and page structure of your website) and SEO strategy (plan on how to be found online by search engines).
Stage 7: Website Design
Next, using the unique theme of your books or series, in addition to the items discussed in our previous conversations, we will start to create a design of your website that is as unique as your story and work with you to get it just right.
Stage 8: Website Development
After completing and signing off on the design process, it’s time for the real magic to begin! Our team will start to breathe life into your vision and work with you to make sure it is meeting, and, hopefully, exceeding, expectations.
Stage 9: Walkthrough & Discussion
With your incredible website now complete, we want to make sure you know the ins and outs of everything going on behind the scenes, along with what your site is capable of, as well as work with you on any questions you may have prior to pushing the website live.
Stage 10: Continuous Growth & Beyond
Now that everything is up and running and you are beginning to share the good news, know that you are never alone! Not only will our team be taking care of regular maintenance and updates, but we are always available to work with you on changes to your website, content management, blog development or social media support.
