Our Five Step Evolution process is a guide for each project, from research and consulting, to corporate identity and event management, to online advertising and loyalty programs, and continuing through superior customer support even after the website is launched.
Our goal is to understand how your business is unique and help you create the perfect user experience for your prospects and customers.
Simply put, starting with a great plan, bringing together creativity and character, developing your project on the ideal platform for your needs is the best start to moving your business forward.
Marketing your new project as fresh introduction to the marketplace, integrating your on and offline marketing efforts and making every effort for your ideal prospect and customer to find and engage with you online is a win-win we both look forward to.
We’ll cover all the bases and provide outrageous customer service, training, seminars and support once your site is launched. Be sure to take a look at our Resources page to get an idea of how we will work to be your technology partner by keeping pace with the ever evolving changing landscape of the internet and online marketing.
Evolve Systems will conduct extensive research into your company, competitors, and industry, in order to to craft a strong online brand and presence.
Based on the research conducted, we will sit down for a comprehensive planning session(s) with the client, and create a detailed sitemap and list of features for the website.
Evolve Systems also partners with a number of outside groups and professionals to provide design, copywriting, video and other internet services. Online marketing strategy consultation is another option to determine key messaging, targeting and content requirements with Search Engine Optimization and UX in mind.
Based on the research and planning session, a number of marketing objectives will be established for post-launch. Typical options include; SEO, content marketing, social media and analytics monitoring and optimization.
All websites run off of different modules that provide different functions, and with our technology assessment we will help you determine which types of modules, extension, plug-ins, widgets, etc. you will need.
We will run a complete detailed analysis of your current website to see how you are doing on the Internet in terms of search engine exposure and website optimization. The Audit process is an optional comprehensive look at your current web presence, your competitors activity and presence and will identify areas of opportunity for better optimized web presence. A SEO and Content Benchmark is a smaller audit option to determine opportunities for search engine optimization.
Not all clients have the same needs, so we will work hard to determine which platforms are best suited for your business, saving you time and money.
To integrate your strategy with the design, we partner with trusted graphic designers, copywriters and other internet professionals to develop brand positioning based on the extensive research to give your business a strong stance in your marketplace.
Your branding is a visual statement for your company’s web presence. Your strategy will affirm if an overhaul or refresh of your identity is required. Branding includes visual and textual elements. Your voice, tone and style of communication is part of your brand and part of completing your corporate identity.
Many companies make design choices from templates that are then customized with logos, colors and minor changes to reflect the needs for the website. Custom design and development is something we are very comfortable with and gives you exactly the web presence, integration and applications you require.
User Experience (UX) Design
Understanding your web visitors expectation and ways in which they access and use your website is key to good design. Is your web visitor doing research? Are they ready to compare you to a competitor or two? Perhaps, your web visitor is ready to buy or they have already become a customer. Each of these types of searches and visitors is searching with different keywords and phrases and expecting different information to satisfy their expectations. Investing in UX design helps to deliver a quality set of experiences for your web visitor.
Mobile User Site Design
Mobile usage via phone or tablet increases daily. Delivering web content formatted to their device and that meets your prospects search expectations is essential for a web visitor to stay engaged on your site.
Application (App) Design
A custom application or app could take many forms. Specialized databases, payment systems, order applications, etc. can be designed and integrated with your online tools.
Online Store Design
Ecommerce shopping carts, static pages and payment gateways sometimes can be managed with template designs and sometimes require customization to fit your business needs. Your business strategy will help to determine your specific and unique needs.
Wire Frames and Mock-ups
Once design has been conceptualized and agreed upon examples are drawn up for final changes and approvals for the Build teams to take over.
