Impetus Digital Web Design and Development Standard Operating Procedures
We understand that effective web design is critical for businesses to succeed in today's digital landscape. That's why we have developed a comprehensive standard operating procedure (SOP) for web design and development. Our SOP provides a clear and concise guide for our team members and potential clients to understand the steps involved in creating a successful website. It covers everything from the planning and design stages to testing and deployment, ensuring that each project is completed efficiently and to the highest standards of quality.
- Gathering Client Requirements:
At the beginning of a project, we'll schedule a meeting with the client to discuss their website requirements. During this meeting, we'll take detailed notes and ask questions to clarify the client's needs. This will allow us to create a project scope document that outlines the project requirements, timeline, and budget. By establishing these key details upfront, we can ensure that the project stays on track and meets the client's expectations.
- The Impetus Digital Checklist:
To ensure that we have all the necessary information to proceed with your web design project efficiently and accurately, we have developed a project checklist for you to complete. The checklist covers a range of areas such as your brand guidelines, target audience, and desired features and functionality. Additionally, we request that you provide all content assets ahead of the project start date to ensure timely completion of the web design. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have while completing the checklist and will work closely with you throughout the project to ensure that your website meets your expectations.

- Design and Mockup:
After gathering the client's requirements, we'll move on to the design and mockup phase. This involves creating a visual representation of the website based on the client's requirements. We'll present the website mockup to the client for feedback, and make revisions based on their input until the design is approved. Once the client has approved the design, we'll obtain their approval to proceed to the development phase.
During the development phase, we'll begin building the website using the latest technologies and best practices in web development. Our team of experienced developers will work to ensure that the website is optimized for speed, security, and usability. We'll also make sure that the website is fully responsive and compatible with all modern web browsers and devices.
- Testing and Quality Assurance:
Before launching the website, we'll conduct thorough testing and quality assurance to ensure that everything is working properly. This includes testing the website for speed, security, and usability, as well as checking for any bugs or errors. Once we're confident that the website is ready to launch, we'll obtain the client's final approval.
- Launch and Maintenance:
After the website has been launched, we'll provide ongoing maintenance and support to ensure that it continues to function properly. This includes monitoring the website for any issues, making updates as needed, and providing technical support to the client as necessary.
