This is one of the most common questions I get when initially meeting with a client, typically followed by ‘How much is it going to cost?’. There are a ton of variables that go into the typical development time.
From start to finish we usually like to estimate around 3-4 months. But that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be done in 3 weeks either. This allows for roughly a month of design concept approval. A month to convert over your content into the living, breathing website. And the last month for us to setup the editor so you can maintain those frequently changing pieces on your own. However, there is a lot that can either excel or decel that process.
The better outlined/planned the project is from the start – the more smoothly the entire project will go. Good thing you have wisnet to help you take care of this part 🙂
We all know that whenever a committee of people is involved things are going to take a little longer to get everyone on the same page. Everyone has their different preferences/ideas. Properly managing these into one consistent vision ensures the project keeps moving along.
One of the hardest processes during the website creation process is coming up with content for the new website. You now see this amazing concept, but the puzzle needs to be completed by having really amazing content also. This is one of the most important steps, but has the potential to slow the project down a bit.
We have often been told that we must have millions of little mice running on this end – because we are always on top of everything that comes our way. One of my most famous quotes is ‘We will work as quickly as you can!’
