The first step is understanding client requirement and the various dynamics around the clients existing systems, as the website or web application will eventually be integrated into this system. The analysis will then cover all the aspects of clients’ business and their needs especially on how the website is going to be merged with their existing system.
The first important thing is finding the target audience. Then, all the present hardware, software, people and data should be carefully assessed. For example, if a company XYZ Corp is in need of a website to have its Human Resource details online, the analysis team may look to review the existing data about the employees from the present database and what migration plan will be best suited to complete the transition.
The analysis should be done in the way, that it is neither too time consuming nor lacking information. The team should be able to come up with a detailed cost-benefit analysis. As the plan for the project will be an output of analysis, it should be realistic. To achieve, this the analyst should consult the designers, developers and testers to come up with a realistic plan.
Preliminary specifications are drawn up by covering up each and every element of the requirement. For example if the product is a web site then the modules of the site including general layout, site navigation and dynamic parts of the site should be included in the spec. Larger projects will require further levels of consultation to assess additional business and technical requirements. After reviewing and approving the preliminary document, a written proposal is prepared, outlining the scope of the project including responsibilities, timelines and costs.
After the specification building, work on the website is commences after receipt of the signed proposal, a deposit, and any written content materials and graphics you wish to include. In this stage the layouts and navigation will be designed as a prototype.
Some customers may be interested only in a full functional prototype. In this case we may need to show them the interactivity of the application or site. But in most of the cases, the customer may be interested in viewing two or three design alternatives with images and navigation.
Be prepared to note down quite a lot of suggestions and changes from the customer side. All the proposed changes should be finalized before moving into the next phase. The revisions could be redisplayed via the web for the customer to view.
This is the most vital stage in the project life cycle to gain client trust that the project is in capable hands. Encourage customer comments, feedback and approvals to be communicated by e-mail, fax and telephone. Engage in constant communication to give clients peace of mind.
Throughout the design phase the team should develop test plans and procedures for quality assurance. It is necessary to obtain client approval on design and project plans. In parallel, the Database team will assess and understand the requirements and develop the database with all the data structures. In this stage, the sample data will also be prepared.
Now, it is the turn of the programmers to add features and functionality that is required. It is important that the developers preserve the overall look and feel of the site is not altered. Any forms needed for the site should be added as well as any image sliders or other dynamic features. A complete testing plan should also be compiled and carried out to ensure that there are no issues for the client later on. This should include a phase of live testing to ensure that all links work.
This phase is applicable only for web sites. Promotion needs preparation of meta tags, constant analysis and submitting the URL to the search engines and directories. There is a detailed article in this site on Search Engine Optimization, for further read. The Search Engine Optimization and Social Media Marketing is normally an ongoing process as the strategies of search engine may change quite often. Submitting a site URL once in 2 months can be an ideal submission policy. If the customer is willing, then paid click and paid submissions can also be done with additional cost.
