Website Design Process

Our Website Design Process

From the first phone call to the kick-off meeting and beyond, our friendly web developers and website sales professionals will be available to answer all your initial questions. In the early meetings, we will discuss specifics such as the requirements of your project, what design styles you prefer, and what is important for your business. We'll even help you choose a color scheme for your website! If it is a redesign project, we'll go over what you'd like to see improved, otherwise we'll help you find the fastest route to launching a successful website if you are starting from scratch. Additionally, we will discuss the benefits of CMS platforms like WordPress and Joomla to help you narrow in on which platform will best serve your needs. We'll discuss with you your project in detail, because we care to learn about your company, its goals and your website project. This communication ensures we are all on the same page, and that your initial wireframe and design samples are right the first time!

Following the kick-off conversation, our expert UX web designers will begin creating a wireframe or design mockup based on your preferences. When ready, we will share with you the wireframe or mockup to get your feedback and involve you in the early design phase of your website. During this stage of the project, we work closely with you to create a custom design for your future website's layout, navigation, content, and call-to-actions. In this stage, we may only have lorem ipsum content in the design mockup, but we'll work with you to put your very own content in the website soon enough! You will be an integral part of this process as we communicate and work with you to refine the web design sample before any development work begins.

Responsive Website Design

Mobile-Friendly, Responsive Web Designs

More than 50% of website traffic comes from mobile users. With this is mind, it is essential that your website looks good and functions properly on mobile devices. Not only that, providing support for mobile users is considered an SEO best practice. Google will lower your website's search result placements if your site does not support mobile users. You will want to avoid this issue by looking for a web development company that can design a mobile-friendly website.

When you work with our website experts, you will receive a responsive, custom web design. A responsive website design ensures your website will look great on all devices, from mobile phones to desktop monitors. The development team at WebCitz is skilled in designing mobile-friendly websites that look appealing on any screen size. If during the development of your website you ever notice anything strange, refer to our browser size checker and let us know the height and width of your screen so we can quickly resolve your issue!

Best of all, we'll integrate your responsive web design in WordPress or Joomla. Having your responsive website built in a popular content management system will ensure you are ready for the years ahead. Whether you are looking for a simple responsive website with up to ten pages of content, or a much larger responsive development with complex design or custom programming requirements, our web professionals can provide you the mobile-friendly website design you need for your business.

Choose the Best CMS Platform

How to Choose the Best CMS Platform

Some of the most common questions we hear are "which website platform is best for my business" and "will I be able to modify my website after it launches?"

The answer to the first website question is simple! Our website developers and website sales staff will discuss with you your website's goals and requirements to make recommendations for the best website platform for your business. As for the second website question, you'll absolutely be able to edit your own website! We understand you will want to make simple edits to your website after it launches, which is one of the reasons we recommend WordPress and Joomla for website platforms. While there are many pros and cons for each, because of the popularity of WordPress we are often hired to perform Joomla to WordPress migrations during redesign projects. These website platforms will allow you to update pages, add images, write blog posts, and much more.

After your website launches, our in-house development team will provide you training in your new website's admin area. This will help ensure you know how to navigate the administration area of your website to create new pages, edit menu items and save your changes. Even if you have little to no experience managing a website, our website experts will be able to easily guide you the simple process. Just give us a call at (800) 796-8263 and we will be happy to walk you through the administration of your website.

Improving Your Website Security Practices

Improving Your Website Security Practices

If you are a website owner, you should consider adopting best practices to keep your website secure from online attacks and malware. Our website experts will be happy to make recommendations and implement security measures during the development of your new website.

  1. Use a strong password generation tool for admin accounts.
  2. Install an SSL certificate, and fix any mixed content issues.
  3. Configure a website application firewall, like Wordfence or Better WP Security.
  4. Place htaccess passwords on administrative folders.
  5. Switch to the latest version of PHP and MySQL.
  6. Ask your hosting provider if they routinely update server software.

When it comes to the security of your website, we recommend you leave no stone unturned. If you have questions about securing your website from online attacks, reach out to our website experts for additional advice on best practices to implement.

Developing a Fast Website

Developing a Fast Website

It is estimated that 53% of website visits are abandoned when a mobile site takes more than three seconds to load. In addition, approximately 50% of people anticipate a page to load in less than two seconds. If your website performance is lacking, your competitor's website could be just a click away.

Website speed impacts more than just user experience, it also plays an important role in search engine optimization. Furthermore, websites that load fast tend to have higher conversion rates and lower bounce rates. Your website’s rankings will drop if search engines determine your website to load slower than expected. When we develop your website, we take search engine optimization, user experience and website speed seriously, for both mobile and desktop experiences.

With these statistics in mind, it is essential your future website be developed with speed in mind. Our website experts always take into consideration the importance of site speed when developing a website. To ensure your website loads quickly, our developers routinely optimize images, minify scripts, enable GZIP compression, implement content delivery networks and much more!

If you have questions about site speed, our team of friendly website professionals will be happy to talk with you! Give us a call at (800) 796-8263 to discuss your website project.

Web Design SEO Best Practices

SEO-Friendly Website Development

When our team develops your website, we will implement our own SEO best practices to ensure your website is SEO-friendly. Before launching your new website, we'll setup any necessary 301 redirects, optimize page titles, write meta descriptions, improve mobile experiences and much more!

The launch of your website is just the beginning to your SEO journey. If you are truly serious about increasing organic traffic, you should consider subscribing to our SEO services. This will provide our marketing team the necessary budget to make routine improvements to your website's onpage and offpage SEO. Our goal is to get you better visibility for relevant search results, increase your organic traffic and improve your conversion rates. To really capture some attention in headlines you write, consider using emojis to peak interest. Talk with one of our website experts to learn more about the benefits of a monthly marketing campaign after the launch of your website by calling us at (800) 796-8263!

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.

How much does a new website cost?

Excitement can soon be overcome by confusion when building a website for yourself or your business. Generally, there’s no set cost for a new website to be built because there are lots of factors that may influence the final price.

When it comes to developing a custom website, we can’t supply you straight away with a specific amount of hours it will take to build based on your needs. This is because every website comes with its own set of components, which can influence the duration it takes to build.

Our development team is versatile, and we can build content based websites using WordPress, Joomla, and Laravel. Plus, if you’re looking for an e-commerce website, we’re experts at building ones on Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, and Laravel. WordPress, however, does tend to be the most popular one because it fuels more than 30% of websites you’ll find on the internet. Whatever website you require won’t leave you in the dark; we will teach you how to use and maintain it.

Our client base is located in Canada and the USA, most of which are 100 miles away from our office. Therefore, location is not an issue for us; our team is flexible to your time zone and is ready to build you the website of your dreams.

Of course, the website is yours after all, and we admire it when you take the lead to learn how to manage it. But, we do know that website maintenance can be tedious and time consuming if you don’t know how to edit it properly. Therefore, to remove this burden, we offer maintenance services that will help keep your website running.

Our experts are ready to provide you with aftercare and keep your website running well post-launch. Whether it’s Laravel, Joomla, WordPress, WooCommerce, Magento, Shopify, and BigCommerce, we’re here for you. Our services allow your website to be maintained directly; we never outsource. We pride ourselves on our availability and provide you with updates and reports surrounding your website as soon as they arise. All it takes is a phone call or message on our live chat system, and one of our in-house team members will be ready to provide you same-day support.

In today’s world, more people are browsing the internet while on the go, which means they tend to view websites on their mobile as opposed to desktop or laptop. We’re not ignoring the other devices, but mobile tends to often be the popular browsing choice. This is why when we develop any website, we make sure it’s scalable and looks great on all devices, so no one is left out.

For the majority of our projects, we split the payment into two, which involves 50% at the beginning and 50% following the launch of your website. This ensures that our team is covered and your needs are met before the final payment is delivered. If the project is slightly larger, we’re flexible and break it down into three payments at the beginning, in the middle, and the last one post-launch. We accept payment using most major credit cards, Paypal, and checks.

Your website wouldn’t be your own if you didn’t have any input in the process! At Webcitz, we engage our clients from the get go to make sure the website we develop they’re 100% satisfied with! Prior to building it, you would undergo a call with our design team to listen and grasp your concepts of the type of website you’d like developed.

Before it reaches the building stage, our team will come up with several mockups for your to review and feedback to us. Then, once you’re happy with the design, we will then hand over the project to one of our developers.

We understand that content is king and is also an essential element for any website. Sometimes, as a business owner, it’s easier for you to produce the content as you know your company better than others and, most importantly, your target audience. But, crafting good content can be time-consuming and can cause you to focus less on other important parts of your business. Therefore, to save you time, we have a copywriting and content writing team who would be more than happy to help you to revise your existing content or write from scratch for an additional fee.

When hosting a website, we know how appealing it can be to look at the different companies and deals available who can host for you. While you do have those options, we prefer to host your website for you. The benefits of us hosting can often surpass the others you see because we offer an unrivaled level of performance.

Our web hosting services use fully managed servers with Dual Intel Xeon Processors, RAID-10 SSD Storage, and 128GB+ Memory. Plus, we provide free website transfers and are experts at WordPress, Joomla, and Magneto 2.x optimized hosting.

All of the websites we host undergo frequent updates and are regularly audited by an external independent security firm. In addition to this, our hosting services ensure daily offsite backups, email spam protection, and the current cPanel control panel.

Once your website has gone live, it’s yours. You own all of the rights to any work our design and development teams have undergone. Do note; you won’t hold any rights to platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Shopify, Laravel, Woocommerce, Magneto, BigCommerce, etc.
