Ian’s Story & Background

Website Design & Development Process

I largely follow the same process when working on freelance and other digital or website projects. Whether I am working as a white label developer for a larger agency or the project lead the following steps ensure a project is delivered and meets expectations of the client.

Find out what is standard in your industry and what your customers expect. Then identify a strategy to move past your competitors.

Design & Develop

Work through wireframes, customer journeys, designs and prototypes to find the perfect layout and funnel that works for your industry. Then optimise it for performance and position it for maximum exposure.

Measure, Learn, Adapt

Make sense of your analytics and learn what is working for your customers and how best to optimise to continue improving.
