Web Design & Development
How are we Different?
In order to better assist a client with their site, we pride ourself in having the willingness to push client boundaries to return a project to them that exceeds expectations. Rather than having a separate team pitch the sale and one team doing the development, we take the time to get to understand the client and their needs so we can show that understanding in the product; no ones knows your business better than you. We may be pushy with a sustained focus on the clients customers to ensure that what the customers need and want are implemented into the design, even if this contradicts the client’s initial wishes. We are here to increase conversion rates from site visitors into paying customers, and we will advise changes be made when appropriate.

A walkthrough of our Process
You choose a Package that suits your needs
After discussing the project at hand, we determine if your chosen package if suitable for your needs. When we understand all of your expectations and have listed all of the proposed deliverables, we will put together a detailed proposal and estimate for your project based on the chosen package.
Media and Branding
Prior to starting the design and development stages of your project, we will ensure that all media and branding materials for your business are collected. These materials include but are not limited to the following; Photographs, Articles, Blog posts, Style Guides, Products, Descriptions and more. This will guarantee our design for your new website matches the unique brand of your business.
Design & Development begins!
You’ve done your work, now it’s our turn! We will configure our servers to get a temporary website up and running for the duration of the development, as well as making sure your business domain is ready to go (Don’t worry, once we’re complete we will migrate the website to your domain!). We spend some time designing mockups for your website, and turn those mockups into code when we are happy with the designs. During this time, we will inspect all client given media and will make recommendations if necessary.
Once we are completed our initial development on your new website, we will present it to you in order to obtain some quality assurance notes and make changes if needed. Chances are, we won’t have everything perfect on the first go. This step gives us an opportunity to know what you would like changed or added to ensure you are happy with the end project.
Sign-off and Website Launch
Congratulations! Now, your website is complete and ready for the world. Once you have signed off on project completion, the website will be launched and we will have a one-on-one meeting to discuss the back end of your website, so you can get some understanding of how it works, and what you can do yourself. Dragon Development will provide a monthly plan for full technical support, hosting, maintenance, backup and security services for your brand new website. This means you will be completely hands-off and we will look after your new website for you. All for a monthly price lower than an average phone bill.
Monthly Maintenance FAQ
Our monthly maintenance includes server hosting fees, weekly bug fixes, weekly website updates, daily security audits, as well as ongoing performance optimization.
Optionally, you have a choice to also have daily backups of your site stored on-site and on our cloud server. In the event that your website ever goes down or is attacked, we can revert to the latest backup and have your website back up in no time.
The cost for our monthly maintenance depends on the services you would like to receive, and will be billed monthly upon project completion.
Standard Maintenance: $60/month
Optional Backups on-site & Cloud: $30/month
