layout, and navigation are crucial elements of a website's
design. Even more important are your answers to the following
do I need a website?
is my target market? Who am I trying to reach? - Businesses,
consumers, a specific industry, distributors, etc.?
there any information about my business or industry that
I would like to relay to my customers?
do I increase traffic to my website?
can I improve my existing website?
If you don't know the answers to any of these questions, our
web design team can help you. We work with our clients to
develop a strategy that best suits their business and customer's
Step 1: Web Questionnaire
our experience we've come across two types of clients. There
are clients that know exactly what they want and others that
need assistance. Before consultation, we urge our clients
to fill out our web questionnaire. The questionnaire provides
information that prepares you for the strategic planning of
your website. It also helps us understand your needs, style,
likes, and dislikes.
Step 2: Web Quote
we've taken off our hats and gotten to know each other, you
may ask, how much is this really going to cost? Because we
do custom web design our prices are quoted on a per client
basis. If you are satisfied with the quoted price, we sign
you up and proceed to the next step. We recognize that every
company's or organization's budget is different however your
critical needs might surpass your budget expectations. TUI,
Inc. offers four web financing plans that allows our clients
more flexibility with their budget.
Step 3: Requirements Document
requirements document is an outline of the entire infrastructure
of your website. This may include:
specifications and objectives
and flow charts
development and payment schedule
all parties agree upon the structure of this document, a deposit
is due and our web team starts to develop your site.
Step 4: Website Development
this time we ask our clients to establish a project team who
will work closely with our web team. Your project team would
be responsible for delivering any content, images, logos,
data, scanning of text or images, etc. to our developers.
Our team will contact your project manager for any questions,
concerns, and to report on your project's status.
addition, our graphic artist works with your corporate styles
and standards to develop five layouts for your project team
to critique and review. Once your team chooses a layout we
allow two revisions based on your team's input before producing
the final design templates. The lead programmer on our team
monitors the accuracy of your project's program flow to your
Step 5: Testing
every client TUI constructs a client account site or test
site where you may review your project's status online. This
client site will also contain your requirements document and
any other valuable contact information. When development is
completed the site is tested by our developers to ensure that
the site functionality meets your design specifications.
Step 6: Go Live!
its the moment of truth. Your website is ready to go live.
All development files are transferred to a host server. A
host server allows everyone in the world to have access to
browse your website. If needed, TUI can setup your own domain
and host your website for you.
