To compete in the dojo, ninjas need to rely on more than their intimidating appearance: They must also know how to fight and utilize every weapon at their disposal. The same applies to website design in the sense that excellent graphics, well-coordinated colors, and clean layouts – while still important – aren’t the only components of a successful strategy. With so many other warriors fighting in the online dojo nowadays, the only way to win is to think like a ninja by utilizing every resource you can.
Being a ninja-run web development company and interactive marketing agency, it’s our duty to provide you with a comprehensive package that includes everything you’ll need to compete. Our approach includes consultations, a competitive analysis, search engine optimization (SEO) services, top-notch design, and much more. On top of that, we’re also one of the most affordable website design agencies online. With all of these features and services at such excellent prices, it’s no wonder we’ve transformed so many young apprentices into mighty warriors.
Will you choose to be one of them? Read on to find out more about our five-step approach.
- Step 1: Initial Consultaion
An excellent website may be the end product, but that doesn’t mean we start there. In fact, the actual development phase is only one step of the entire process: The other parts involve getting to know not only you, but also the purpose and goals of your website. Once we have a firm understanding of what exactly you want and need, we can then begin to move forward.
Many other agencies don’t seem to realize that consultation, conceptualizing, research, and analysis are the most vital parts of the website design process. As a result, we tend to be one of the few companies that offer you a comprehensive consultation before getting started. If we didn’t know who you were or what you wanted, the end product wouldn’t be nearly as effective.
Oh, and you would probably get drop-kicked out there in the dojo. Trust us, it hurts!
- Step 2: Research and Conceptualizing
This stage is where the planning truly begins. Now that we know both you and your goals, we can begin to iron out some of the project’s finer details and concepts, as well as its basic design. This is an incredibly important part of the website design process, since it builds the framework of the final product.
During this phase, something else happens: We also work with you to establish a marketing strategy. As an SEO services company, we’re experts in helping you research and choose the keywords and marketing strategies that will make your website visible both on and off search engines. This, however, is only half of the marketing and strategy phase.
- Step 3: Competitive Analysis
The second half of the marketing and strategy phase is analyzing your competition. Before ninjas enter the dojo, they try to find out who – or what – they’re up against. Since the competition can range anywhere from a young apprentice to a master ninja, knowing their opponent’s weaknesses beforehand is important. Once they know their competition, they can begin to strategize and plan their moves.
In the online dojo, having the ninja mentality is helpful: Depending on your website’s purpose, you may have anywhere from no competitors to massive, well-established corporations sitting high in the search engines. Regardless of who you’re up against, however, our competitive analysis will help you find out the best way to take the biggest possible slice of your market.
- Step 4: Execution
Ninjas are known for getting the job done swiftly, quietly, and efficiently. Being ninjas ourselves, we live up to that: We have a ninja master for each specialty – development, graphic design, usability, e-commerce, SEO, and more – who efficiently and effectively contributes his or her expertise to the project. In a very short amount of time, your website is ready to enter the dojo!
Before implementation, however, we always make sure you’re satisfied first. In fact, we make it a point to keep you involved each step of the way, unlike other affordable website design agencies that seem to disappear behind a magic curtain for several weeks.
Here at The Applied Visual, we believe keeping you involved in the process is the best way to ensure both satisfaction and quality.
- Step 5: Implementation
We’ve planned, strategized, and trained. Your website is now a fierce and powerful web presence that’s ready for battle, regardless of browser. With our marketing and promotion strategies by your side, you’re ready to enter the dojo.
However, our job isn’t quite done: We’ll stick by you as long as you need us, and will always be around for the occasional tune-up or update. Not only that, but we’ll also help you keep track of your website’s progress, ensuring that it’ll always be a force to be reckoned with!
