Website Design Process
It all starts with a powerful design
A design that appeals to your customer, is where your real traffic will come from. 99% of your customers will
leave your site in the first 7 seconds if they do not find what they want, or like what they see.
That's where A-C-Design comes in. After nearly 12 years of website design and development, we know what works
(and increases your revenue), and what doesn't and leads people away from your website. We have tried, and tested
and analyzed global visitors for years, and best of all - our experience will pay off when it comes to increasing

Here's a brief description of our design phases:
Phase 1 - Initial Research - In this phase we gather the details on your business and how
you feel about presenting it to your visitors. We look at your current marketing materials and ask you questions
about how you feel about specific design issues.
Phase 2 - Development - We now spend time developing a quick model, or mock up of your
website that you can look at. If you feel that we are heading in the right direction and approve of our graphic
design, we move forward with gathering the 'web content'.
Phase 3 - Content - It's now time for you to give us all of the graphics and web copy (we
can also provide copywriting services if you require them) to include in your website. We will keep you informed
with a schedule throughout this process and a timeline of when you can expect your website to go live.
Phase 4 - Live Website Walkthrough - We have now completed your website and will present
you with a walk through of it's features. This usually happens with one of our team calling you and giving you a
'web tour' of your working website.
Phase 5 - Marketing (optional package) - At this point, it's time to start thiking
about how you are going to 'drive traffic' to your new website. We can give you suggestions and ideas on how to
proceed from here. It may require a significant amount of time to complete some of these steps, but it will
certainly be worth it in the end.
