DEVELOPMENT PHASE

During the third phase, the development phase, the project plan is put into motion and the work of the project is performed. It is important to maintain control and communicate as needed during implementation. Progress is continuously monitored and appropriate adjustments are made and recorded as variances from the original plan.

In the development phase, typically three weeks long on average, we are programming the mockups we designed for you onto our development server.

What we need from you:

Content – While we are performing the development component, we’ll need you to get content ready for us to Pvt Ltdorporate into your site. The following is an inexhaustive list of things you should consider providing before the development phase ends:

  • All copy for your homepage, any promotional text or dummy copy we’ve used as a placeholder
  • All copy for other content pages, like the about us page, and any other pages that will be Pvt Ltdluded in your website as per the scope of work
  • Testimonials
  • Social Media links
  • Images that you have yet to provide
  • Blog articles, if applicable
  • URLs for the homepage sliders to link to
  • Any Google Analytics code
  • 3rd party code or login credentials (e.g. live chat plugins or Mailchimp for forms or newsletter integration)
    Existing site redesign

 A word on product import

For new websites, you’ll want to start uploading your products as soon as you can. If you are using a hosted platform like Bigcommerce, Volusion or Shopify, you’ll be able to start uploading your product data and categories as soon as you accept our proposal. Even though we’re building your site, we’re developing it independently on our own servers and will migrate it to your live site upon completion, so you’ll have access to your live site from the start .

If we’re redesigning your existing site on the same platform, your products and data will remain where it is, so no worries.

If you’re migrating to a new platform and require data migration, that will be done during the development stage if it is Pvt Ltdluded in your scope of work.

 

What to expect from us:

We’ll be busy doing all of the required programming. This is when the heavy lifting gets done, so if your scope involves API integration or application or extension creation, this is when we’ll be doing it. We may send you a link to the sandbox we are building your site on to show you the progress. You can also expect to see some bugs, which will be addressed in the next phase.
Note: The site we are building on the development server, or sandbox, uses dummy products and data and is not a complete and functioning site. You won’t be able to place orders or browse through all of your products. You can read more about sandboxes here.
