Business website development

The primary scope of work for a web development company includes ideating, designing, creating and maintaining websites and applications. Let us break this down further:

  • Website development services

As is evident from the millions of business sites on the internet, websites come in a variety of styles and sizes. A website can be custom-built by a web development company to suit the unique needs and preferences that a business has. Unlike the websites developed during the last decade, these days websites are created taking a mobile-first approach. This means developing your website for smaller (handheld) devices and then adapting it for access on a laptop or PC. The approach a web development company takes to create your business site would depend on a range of factors that include the following:

  • The type of business (B2C / B2B)
  • The industry or domain that you operate within
  • The geographies and audience demographics that you cater to 
  • Your budget for the creation and maintenance of the website
  • Your objectives and goals (both short term and long term)
  • Mobile application development services

Business owners have realized the need to adopt a mobile-first approach. Trends and studies point towards the fact that audiences spend the majority of their time on their smartphones. Just like websites, applications are also created primarily for mobile usage. Here are a few factors that determine how the app development process will pan out:

  • Platforms where you wish to make your business app available (iOS, Android, etc.) 
  • Type of business and the industry you belong to
  • Target group demographics 
  • Purpose of the application 
  • Your budget for building and maintaining the app

Typically, a web development company will help you build an app and/or website by engaging in the following activities:

  1. Ideating and freezing the framework, architecture, and navigation
  2. Choosing a coding language to build your site and app (HTML, PHP, JavaScript, ASP, etc.)
  3. Coding and programming the back end
  4. Integrating media elements like videos, images, and audio
  5. Publishing content and optimizing it according to best practices
  6. Working on designing the User Interface and User Experience at the front end
  7. Testing the website and app before it goes live (beta testing)
  8. Identifying problems and fixing bugs
  9. Conducting speed and performance testing
  10. Implementing codes and going live
  11. Maintaining and updating this online real estate on a regular basis

The web development process involves several other steps, most of which are taken care of by your outsourcing partner along the way. Some companies also offer to design and build a site or app using an online Content Management System (CMS) like Joomla, WordPress, Magento, or any other from the host of existing platforms.

In essence, a web development company works with its client and design team to provide end-to-end website creation and app development services.
