How does it all work?
Earlylight meets with you, the Client, with the initial
meeting confined to determining the plans and objectives
of the site, as well as obtaining a general view of the
Client's Web site vision.
Even the simplest site has some very basic needs:
- a place to be (Web server)
- a URL or Address - such as www.earlylight.com
- something to say / something to sell
- some kind of graphic design
- some way to interact with the viewing
Earlylight works with you in brainstorming
sessions (sometimes, these are held entirely via e-mail)
to identify the base requirements and special features for
Once the plans, objectives and requirements have been verbally
confirmed, we document the desired features. Often some
custom programming will be required in order to provide
the necessary functionality. In those cases, an in-depth
interview with you then results in a documented feature
Workflow / Storyboard
We prepare estimates of the work to be done - usually with
a few options, so as to provide a more flexible structure
and pricing. There may be some custom programming necessary
in order to accomplish the Site goals. At this time, in
very general terms, we discuss possible work flow and storyboard
Site Specifications and Contract
Based upon the work flow and requirements, we prepare detailed
specifications and provide a contract, which will be signed
by you as well as the members of the Earlylight team.
At this point, Earlylight prepares various "views"
based on the above information, and works with you and the
other members of the Earlylight team to prepare previews
/ demos of the site as it can be. Reiterative demo sites,
based upon your feedback, are prepared.
Also at this point, the functionality is created
and also is presented to you, with reiterative views until
you are satisfied with the workings of the site.
Assembly and Testing
One of the most exciting portions of Web site creation is
when it is all put together - when all the functionality
is integrated with the design, and testing begins. Earlylight
is very detail-oriented when it comes to testing, and we're
not satisfied until you are satisfied.
Even more exciting than the assembly is the Web site launch.
This is when all the hard work pays off! People are able
to use the site, and Earlylight helps with the promotion
of the site by listing it with the DMOZ (Open Directory
Project) to ensure that your site is in its appropriate
category on search engines such as Google, Yahoo! AOLSearch,
Lycos and others.
You are then encouraged to make sure that
the site address (URL) is on every piece of marketing material.
After all, you have just created a way for people to get
information about your business, your marketing material
will send people to the site to view that information.
