The development of the web site consists in several stages:
Development of a concept
Drafting of Terms of Reference
Development of a design
Development of programming provision
Processing of textual and visual material and data base filling
Each of the stages is important to be realised professionally. The mistakes at any of the stages lead to creation of a “non-working” site.
Development of a concept
It is often thought that the creation of the site begins with the development of its design. But this is not so. The development of the design – this is only one of the stages in the development of the site.
The very first step is – setting of objectives and tasks, targeted by the site. The objectives can be various. - attracting new clients, information support of already existing clients, positioning of the company as a leader at the market, promotion of specific product.
Further, the composition of the future auditorium and its graphic will be set. Who, from where and why would visit the site?
Site, which relies on juvenile auditorium will strongly differentiate from the site for professionally oriented communities, a site for metropolitan dwellers will differ from a site for visitors from the country. At the next stage, the matters, concerning the layout of the site, the main requirements to the site, its structure, ways of further work on it are to be discussed. The cost of the work, a contract is concluded and a plan-schedule is drafted for the development of the site.
Preparation of Terms of Reference
The Terms of Reference is a document, which is to be drafted by all means, because without its availability it is unserious to develop any intricate and complex web site.
The Terms of Reference is played as a structure in detail, navigation, functional capacities, requirements as to the design and even to the form of the displayed output data.
The required software modules for development are to be determined and described, and finally a document, specifying the content and the layout of the site is to be endorsed.
Sometimes the cost and the development of the Terms of Reference reach half of the cost for the development of the site itself. For not very large sites of the type of an identity card, the Terms of Reference can be written in a very simple manner.
Development of a layout of a web site
The layout of the site is developed according to the wish of the client, considering the logo and the company style.
The originality of the web-design directly depends of the payment for it. The more time the web-designer has for creative work, the more interesting will be the layout, at that, the not very expensive web design and the expensive one will differ mostly in originality of idea, not in quality of performance.
The cost of the developed web design mostly depends on the requirements of the client.
As a rule the price of the web design is about 20% - 40% of the cost of the whole project.
Development of programming provision
When the design of the web site is agreed and accepted by the client and all necessary pages are approved begins the development of the programming provision.
The programming of the web site includes the development of a system for management of the site and the user part. Because the web design studio, Web Design Bulgaria, disposes with significant extent of developments in the field of web programming and all standard modules have already been developed, the price and the time for the development of the programming part can significantly be reduced.
Our management systems of sites have inbuilt visual – graphic editor, allowing without special knowledge editing the web site pages, in-building of graphic elements, tables, hyper-links and many others. The interface allows easy transfer to the site of information of the type DOC, PDF and others.
You can also alone control the structure of the site, change the content, as to create new sections and manage its menus.
At that you will not need additional knowledge, except skills to work with Windows applications, because the system is constructed with intuitively understandable interface, which allows hiring for the filling of the web site of not costly specialists.
Processing of textual and picture material and data base filling
The price for processing the textual and picture material and filling of the data base is directly linked with:
The type of the provided input materials (no matter if provided in digital format, paper or processed and made by the developer.
Filling of the web site with information (whether remains obligation of the developer or of the client).
Usually in developing a web site is accepted filling of the data base to a volume, necessary for testing the web site. If we are ordered to put in the whole information (and these are sometimes thousands and tens of thousands of positions), the price will be set in direct correlation with the type and volume of the delivered information. However, it is usual for such volumes of data an import data mechanism to be made.
As a result of the given stage of the development of the web site it comes to its working trial piece (in essence this is a fully functioning web site, but it still has not reached its users). After testing and introduction of the necessary changes, the accepted site is published in internet and registered in the main searching systems and catalogues.
This finalises the development of the web site.
What follows next?
Next, the following stage of work is possible: advertising the site, promotional campaign of the site.
In planning the costs for the web site, we advise:
Consideration of the hosting costs – about BGN 60.00 per year.
You have to put in your budget resources for further work on the promotion of the web site, by optimisation for search engines in internet advertisement.
Do we give guarantees for our work?
In testing the web site or an internet shop, we pay serious attention to the trial of the project. We are convinced in the high quality of our work, so after the delivery of the site for use, we provide half year guarantee of our software developments. This means that if you establish any errors in the software modules of the web site, we correctly and quite free shall correct them, provided that, this occurs within 6 months of completion of work on the development of the web site.
