A result-driven process
1. Project Discovery
The first step towards launching a new website is to thoroughly understand the company goals, the interests of the visitors, and how the website factors into all of it. This stage is the foundation for moving forward with just the right recommendations for the development of a fully-responsive website. The discovery phase will help outline a project proposal and scope, ensuring that we are all on the same page.
2. Architecture and Wireframe Design
When our team is armed with the project goals and strategy, we will map out a the site structure and the navigation. With the architecture maps, Greenstone designers sketch out content-focused wireframes that serve as the general layout for the home page and other views throughout the website. Clients provide feedback to refine the templates and layouts for different pages.
3. Brand and Web Styles
From the approved wireframes and a content road map, our designers create a style guide to compliment a logo or brand. The style guide will ensure a cohesive and strong aesthetic throughout the website. With the style guide, we will create high-fidelity mockups that preview almost exactly how the final website will appear in the browser. With a design preview before development, the client has the chance to get excited about the direction and review progress early on in the project timeline.
4. Web Development
Greenstone works with existing web software that acts as a platform for maintaining and customizing each Website project. For most websites we suggest developing with WordPress, WordPress can be customized, it is easy to update and it is well-supported. For eCommerce websites we suggest using Shopify. Shopify has excellent product and inventory management, and a secure checkout. We use a staging site that will have the in-development website available before going live. Every client receives weekly calls or emails with the progress of the project.
5. Quality Assured Testing
Every page view, link, request, scroll, screen width, mobile device, browser, form and plugin configuration will be quality-assured tested. We know that an error-proof website means a huge difference for the credibility and trust that visitors expect. We test on 3 generations of iPhone, Google Pixel, Samsung, and HTC. We test on all major browsers and will share with you performance-graded tests. We commit and promise a beautiful and dynamic user-experience for your website before going live.
6. Website Launch and Marketing
Once our team and the clients have approved site launch, we will take care of all the email and domain changes to go live. After the launch we can train your staff on how to keep content up-to-date and how to monitor traffic through with Google Analytics. See this example of a website developed with this process. Greenstone also offers result-driven Internet Marketing and SEO services that many clients add-on for higher results.

“Working with Greenstone Media has been easier then I could have ever anticipated. Branding was quite daunting for me and I was struggling in developing an image and website to define my company. I knew what type of style I wanted but couldn’t communicate an actual image to build from. I was smitten with the first creative provided to me and couldn’t believe how well my vague desires had been illustrated in a logo. I was also thankful that my minor edits were welcomed and encouraged to insure complete satisfaction. Greenstone is an approachable “one stop shop” for my creative and website needs that I am delighted to have a working relationship with.”
