Nicsgolf was designed for a Singapore Golf Teaching Professional. He wanted to highlight what he offered in the way of teaching golf plus he wanted to allow his students to book online and have a centralised online calendar saving him the time of keeping a manual diary. www.nicsgolf.com
Based in Singapore we specialise in custom WordPress web design. WordPress is currently the most popular content management platform in the world with over 60 million installations. The reason for its popularity is that it makes it easy for website owners to take control of their content and update their own websites with just a few clicks of a button. This makes the process of web design simpler, easier and cheaper for the person with little or no technical knowledge.
The process we follow is tailored to your needs
The traditional approach
This process follows a delivery framework where we work through each of the steps in sequence to deliver the website. It identifies your requirements in the early steps. We then get to work on designing and building the solution according to what has been agreed. It works really well for larger clients with multiple stakeholders who have a pretty clear idea of what they want from the start.
We always start by asking you lots of questions that help us understand your needs. We want to know everything about your target audience, objectives, competitors and so on. We will show you a dummy site with many features so you can get an understanding of what you can have. From this meeting we will identify the features you are interested in for your new site.
Once the design plan has been signed off the site will be built. At this point the wording and the images for the website will be required from the client.
You will be given a proposal based on what was discussed at the initial meeting. Should you wish to proceed with your website we will need 50% desposit to proceed from this point.
We will collaborate together on the design and layout in a workshop style meeting. This usually takes a few hours but by the end of the meeting the layout and design of the new site will be established.
You will be presented with the complete site. At this stage you will be given one last opportunity to make minor amendments. Any further changes after this point and you will incur additional development costs. (Currently $100 per hour)
The website will be put on a test server for review and comment to identify any technical errors. Once agreed the website will be made live.
The Agile approach is implemented slightly differently than the traditional approach. Rather than focusing on defining and documenting everything before any development work begins, the project is defined and refined though a series of gatherings. We start by looking at what the end user wants and the customer wants. We then sit down with the customer at a number of sessions to develop the site together. This process is great for business owners and small businesses who have few stakeholders involved in the process. It is also a great way for customers to learn what is possible to develop with the current web technology available.
Everything you need for a succesful website
We work closely with our clients to give you the design that fits in with your brand. Colours, type faces, imagery and general look and feel are all discussed and agreed at the outset.
The Content Management System (CMS) gives you control over your own website. You will have the option to either update the site yourself or we can do it for you. You also have the ability to decide who controls what on the website so if you have a member of your team who you want to solely write the Blogs you can give them the permission to do just this.
