How it Works
Our website creation process outlines the steps we take from start to finish to ensure your website is built using techniques that provide a great user experiences for your visitors, and increased growth for your business.
The beginning of every website design project starts with understand what your customers really want, and how they're looking for it.
Using our design process we develop a strategy that helps us align your website design with your customers goals and objectives, providing clear direction for how best to present your brand, products, and important information the quickest and most frictionless way possible.
When our research is complete, we use what we've learned to create wireframes of your website pages.
Wireframes are simple black and white layouts that outline the specific size and placement of page elements, site features, conversion areas and navigation for your website.
Web page mockups expand on the wireframes we create by incorporating a higher level of visual design.
This includes adding branding elements such as colors, fonts, and logos, as well as imagery and design assets. Mockups bring your wireframes to life! During this phase you'll be able to make design adjustments, and change elements until you're happy with the overall direction.
When we have completed design mockups,
We’re ready to convert them into live code.
This is where the digital magic happens. Now that we have examples of how your web pages should look, our developers will use these designs as a visual road map to build your website in code.
We go under-the-hood, building each of your web pages, including images and products, copy, forms, all the bells & whistles, and essentially everything else your customers see and interact with on your website.
That's not all! We also take care of behind the scenes tasks such as search engine optimization (SEO) and website performance, security configuration, and setting up web tools such as hosting and domain services.
Test & Launch
Finally, we check our work and test your entire website to make sure everything functions as it should, and the final website design matches the mockups.
Once complete, we then take care of launching your website and completing the post launch tasks, like connecting your website to Google search console and submitting your sitemaps.
Lastly, if you wnat to keep your website secure and healthy, Birdhouse Websites & Designs offers post launch monthly maintenance and security support, as well as platform training. Just ask!

Website Management and Premium Support with 24×7 Assistance
Just like cars, websites require maintenance to operate properly. Sure, you can do updates yourself, but do you have time and are you able to repair things on your own, if an update goes wrong (and it does sometimes).
Let a professional handle the heavy lifting for you and spend your time servicing your customers and running a business! In fact, a properly maintained website helps keep your site security (which has never been more important), and free from viruses and malware. Search engines like maintained websites too as the SEO and performance optimization increases the number of new visitors, boosts returning traffic, and more.
Even if we didn’t build your website originally, we still offer monthly support services – and piece of mind. You are never locked into a contract and can cancel your maintenance plan at any time.*
