|Invisible Gold websites are different. We developed a proprietary system that enables you to edit your own website. It's more than that, however - it's a unique process that separates a website into three distinct areas that can be developed and updated independently: Graphic Design, Content, and Functionality |
This means you start out with a professional looking website with custom graphics, layout, and content. It stays current because it's easy for you to update the content as often as you like using nothing more than a web browser.
When it is time for a fresh look, we can update the graphics for far less time and cost than a traditional site. The functionality works the same way. It can be easily updated to a new version to add new features and enhancements.
Project PhasesYou should plan for your website to take 3-8 weeks to go from an initial design to a live site. The project starts with an in depth needs assessment meeting. Once the project goals are identified, it transitions to graphical mockups. When the design is complete, we take it live on a development server (hidden from public) and start pouring in content. In the last phase we run a checklist of tests to verify that it is ready to go live.
Please understand that each project is unique and different things can impact the scope and timeline. We may need to make adjustments for projects that change significantly.
1. Graphic Design Phase
We'll ask a series of question, then present up to three mockup designs for your review. The process will repeat 1-3 times until you approve a design for implementation.
At this point we'll take the design and turn it into an empty but working website on a production server (hidden from the public).
2. Content Creation
If your project involves a writer or photographer, they'll start putting in content for review so you can evaluate how it flows and show it to trusted colleagues.
The next two pages describe some of these features.
