What does a web developer actually do?

Are you in the market for a professional corporate website design? The benefits of an online presence for your organisation cannot be underestimated, so if you don’t already have a website up and running, or it’s been around for more than a few years, it’s time to make the investment in the growth of your business.

There are a number of corporate web design services available in Brisbane, as web development is becoming increasingly vital for all businesses. Regardless of size, from micro businesses to large multi-national corporations, a professionally designed website will help generate leads and increase sales.

What’s involved in corporate website design?

Brisbane web development companies, on top of local knowlege of the Brisbane market, require a wide set of skills and many years of experience. Before the company can begin developing a website for their clients, they need to understand your business needs and carry out a number of essential tasks to address those requirements. So let’s take a look at what is involved in corporate website design, from the point where we have already determined your brief and we’re ready to start creating your new website.

1. Setup

From the very start, we need to setup a web hosting account and purchase a domain name for your new website (unless you have already purchased your own domain name previously). Next, we need to create and setup all of the files and databases that will form the structure of your website.

2. Design and development

To complete your corporate website design, we set up the functionality using various programming languages, design each page, and import, edit and reformat your content. Along the way, we work within various file systems, compress images and other files to increase speed, and test for any bugs.

We need to take into consideration many factors, including speed, security, search engine visibility/rankings, user expectations, multiple devices/technologies, the ability to change the website in future, and many more items.

There’s also a lot of communication with our clients as we work through a design revision process, gathering feedback and making the necessary code/design adjustments along the way.

3. Training and support

Once all of these tasks have been completed, this is the end of the major steps in web development. Brisbane based businesses will also receive in-house training, documentation, and continued support and management — depending on their selected website package, of course. Our website management packages include various actions such as upgrading the software on a regular basis, setting up monitoring tools, and monthly reports.

Corporate web design is a true specialisation

As you can appreciate, corporate website design is a full-time occupation, demanding skills that have been honed over time and which are increasing every day. It’s a highly specialised area which means that only the top-tier web developers will provide a suitable return on investment for their clients.
