Every web design agency will approach the process of building a new website for you in a slightly different way. In general though there will be a series of steps and milestones that will be the same across the board – when you have reached them, you will know that you have made serious progress with your website and you are approaching the stage where it can go live.
The first step will generally be ideation, where you will share ideas and concepts that you like with the agency and they will put together preliminary designs for you. Once this is complete, you will generally move on to creating copy that will sell your business and tell your customers all about you. Once the website has been built and is stored on a server, it will be time for the final process: going live. Your new website will be launched and will be ready to go.
