That’s why we assign you your very own project manager at the start of your journey. They’ll be on hand to make sure your website is delivered on time and to brief. Your project manager will be there to help you every step of the way.
...but we want to try! Your project manager will match you with one of our designers and arrange a consultation call to learn more about your school, your vision, and your values. This will be the ideal chance to discuss your ideas in more detail.
Your designer will take everything they’ve learned about your project and use it to create a wireframe. This is a very basic outline of what your new website might look like and where key elements might appear.
Once you’ve had time to look over the wireframes and share your feedback, we’ll make any changes and then seek your approval ready to start designing your website.
Your new school website will be created from scratch so it really is unique to you. Your designer will work tirelessly to make your vision a reality, bouncing ideas back and forth until everyone is happy with the final design.
If you’d like your website to contain custom illustrations, we’ll hand sketch any buildings, characters or items and incorporate them into the design.
Once we’ve sent over our initial design concepts for your homepage and inner pages, you’ll have chance to provide us with feedback. We’ll keep tweaking and changing your designs until you’re happy. The majority of our clients are so pleased with our initial designs they don’t require any amendments at all.
With your design finalised it’s time to build your website into our responsive framework so that it works perfectly on any device. We’ll build your school website using the latest WC3 HTML and CSS coding standards to ensure it’s speedy and robust. Your developer will also build your website into our much-loved Content Management System so you can keep your new website up-to-date.
Once your website has been built it’s time to start testing. We’ll run your website in a range of browsers and on multiple devices to ensure every visitor gets the best possible experience.
Now your website has been tested it’s time to start adding content. Our content team will add some of of your content as part of your project, to help get you started.
You’ll also be given your login details so you and your colleagues can start adding content and updating your school website. Our in-line help tools provide free training if you get stuck.
Packed full of engaging content your new website is nearly ready to go live, but first, it’s worth looking through our pre-launch checklist. [Maybe indicate in the design a checklist that includes proofreading the website, checking the social media feeds are set up correctly etc]. Then we just need to point your website address at our servers - don’t worry, our support team can help! If you don’t have a website address, we can buy one for you, free of charge.
Blast off! On your pre-arranged launch date, we’ll put your website live. Now you can promote your website to your school community and celebrate all your hard work as the positive feedback starts to roll in.
Your website might be live but we’re still here to help. Our support team are on hand to give free technical support and consultative advice whenever you need it, throughout the working day. We’re just an email or a phone call away.
Now your website is live, why not share it with other schools? If they get a new website too, we’ll give you some of your money back! Best of all, there’s no limit to how much your school can earn.
Each term we’ll give you a call to see how you’re getting on with your school website and share any tips, best practice and help answer any burning questions you might have. You’ll also have access to our e4education Academy, packed full of free resources to help your school make the most out of your school website.
