Websites have become a necessity for any modern business – it lets people visit your store before they’ve even set foot on the premises. They are just as crucial for projects and individuals looking to get the word out about what it is they do. That’s why at HYPERREAL we build websites for everyone.
Our websites are creative, functional, and affordable. We want to ensure we deliver a stunning website that fits your needs, to do this we work closely with our clients to ensure we design the website of their dreams. You can read more about our process below.
In additional to our web design services we also offer flexible digital marketing subscriptions at affordable prices, no long term commitment required!
Securing a great domain name is one of the very first steps in setting up a website. As part of our website packages we can help you come up with a fun and creative domain that will help you be found easily on google.
If you don’t already own a domain name then we can help get one for you. All our websites come with a domain name so you don’t have to worry about a thing. If you already own a domain name and would like to use it for your website, we can help with transferring the domain or redirecting it to your new website.
Firstly, we like to get to know our clients, usually with a face-to-face meeting. This gives you a chance to meet who you are going to be working with.
During your introduction with one of our web designers you will be able to discuss your hopes and dreams for your website. We want to know what you hope to achieve from your website, how much you’re prepared to spend, your preferred styles and colours, any design ideas you have, and everything else you feel like sharing.
Once you’ve had your initial introductory meeting and you’re happy to go ahead with your project, we move on to design planning and research.
At this stage we like to undertake quite a bit of market research. We like to stalk your competitors or see what similar projects have done so we can get an idea of what it will take to make your website stand out.
We then make provisional design plans for your website based off of your preferences. Normally we draft up a couple of options for you to choose from. Once we find something that suits you we will go ahead and get ready to build your website.
Next we move on to our information collection process. This is where we collect every single possible detail we would need to build an accurate and informative website.
Although our creative team is great at writing and saying things nicely, sometimes we need content straight from the horse’s mouth. So we will often require some text from you, whether it be a draft of you About page, or a couple of testimonials, or even a run down of what exactly you do if it is very complex.
We also need lots of nice images, videos, and other general web stuff so we can go make your website look lovely.
P.S. – if you require a photographer to get some great photos of your premises, services, or products, then please let us know and we can arrange this for a small fee.
After we have collected everything we need to make a great website, we go ahead and build it.
At your initial meeting you would have discussed a time frame with your designer. For small sites this could be a couple of days, for larger sites or ecommerce shops this could be a couple of weeks.
During this phase we will be in touch with updates and previews for you. Please feel free to phone us at any time to check the status of your new website.
Once the website is complete we then move on to the launch phase. At this time we do all the nerdy back end stuff to make sure Google and Bing know where to find your website.
Normally we coincide the launch of the website with your digital marketing strategy. Our websites come with varying levels of marketing strategies should you require one. If you would like help with digital marketing even after the website is up and running then please speak to your rep – they’ll be able to discuss our digital marketing options with you.
Once the website is live and everyone has had a chance to take a good look at it, it might be necessary for some small changes to be made or some things to be added. We’re happy to make revisions at any time.
Then after all that, we normally celebrate another successful HYPERREAL project!
At HYPERREAL we specialise in website design as well as digital marketing. The two fields go hand-in-hand the success of any website comes from having in place a great digital marketing strategy. We can help with everything from SEO to social media, newsletters to blog posts, and even some traditional marketing too!
