Over our professional careers, our team has worked on a lot of web development projects in a wide variety of industries. While we use all of that experience to our advantage while we develop your site, we totally understand that every business is different.
It is important to us that you receive a website capable of accomplishing the goals of growing your business that works with the current technology capabilities of your staff and infrastructure. To make sure of all of those factors are given proper consideration, we personally take the time to meet with all key stakeholders at your company during the discovery process of your project.
Through these discovery meetings, both you and the web developers at Socium Digital can expect to obtain an accurate overview of the every detail of the project. These meetings are also essential to set appropriate expectations for common issues that delay web development projects like approval processes and rounds of revision.
We always begin a new project by building taking time to truly understanding your business, the industry you work in, and the audiences you intend to serve with your products and services. Once we have that information, the goals of your website are pretty easy to identify. On top of that, it’s also very easy to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors. This important part of the discovery phase allows us to push your online presence forward while taking advantage of:
- the success you have already had in generating sales and satisfied customers
- the growth areas your competitors are leaving untapped for their business.
During our discovery phase, we also provide technical recommendations for your website like a preferred hosting solution (if needed) and a content management system (CMS). When necessary, these recommendations take into consideration your technology requirements, the types of services and features your website needs, migration processes and a discussion on the capabilities of your existing staff for managing your website after the development is complete. Our developers specialize in WordPress and Magento, while our designers are platform agnostic if you have a preferred management platform.
