Web Design & Development
Professional, Secure, Mobile Friendly & Brand Inspiring
Here’s how the Idea Swell web design and development process,
from planning to perfection, is done. Enjoy.
Research & Strategic Planning
Starting with a full understanding of the clients business and goals, we delve deep, in order to create the best strategy for achieving high conversion rates.
Yes, it’s about sales! ‘Conversions’ more directly. Converting visitors into customers, followers, clients or whatever the end goal requires is our primary directive and taking sufficient time to plan out a project is crucial to the success of website.
Preliminary Project Questions: (sneak peak)
- Do you already have a website? If so, do you have access to the domain name?
- Do you have a logo and a brand identity?
- What are your goals and expectations for your website?
Now that we’ve got the blueprints ready, it’s time to get all our building materials together. That may sound corny, but there couldn’t be a better analogy.
Let us help you create a ‘word-flow’ that starts with capturing users attention with text content that matches the visual appeal of the site upon first impression and ends with a call-to-action that converts visitors into clients that keep coming back for more.
Search Engine Optimization: This is a key phase of the project where we are able to write content with a dual purpose. Along side ‘selling’, equally important is writing content for SEO.
Imagery is absolutely key to a well designed website. We make certain to have images for projects on hand prior to even accepting a down payment for a project. Why? We simply cannot design a website without images. If your business is located in the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area we can come to you for a professional photo shoot to acquire the needed imagery.
You have questions... We have answers
Much less of a deal breaker, video content is still quite important. Recently google has been giving website’s with video content higher rankings on search results. Also, videos are a great way to connect with visitors and maintain their attention. We also offer professional video editing solutions for businesses of all sizes.
- This phase is the biggest road block in 70% of our projects as clients occasionally choose to write their own content and often have trouble finding the time, or the words to get the job done.
- Poorly written content can kill a users attention just as fast as a poorly designed site.
At this point in the project we have a solid understanding of you company and the brand identity which it exudes. Our goals during the website design phase are as follows:
- Professionally represent the brand.
- Acquire and maintain user interest.
- Design with mobile version at the forefront.
- Lead visitors to meet goals via, sign ups, sales, etc.
We custom tailor every website to become an online powerhouse that turns visitors into interested, active participants and eventually customers.
We’ve built the doors, hood and basically the body of the car. Now it’s time to put it all together and build and the engine! There are quite a few factors that the development phase entails so we are only going to go over the elements which aren’t ‘super-techie’, yet core in what sets us apart from the competition.
Mobile Devices / Responsive
As the adaptation of mobile devices is constantly on the rise, developing every website we undertake for full functionality across different devices is a fundamental aspect of our web development service.
Site Management & Strategy
Dependent on the project, long term management can been done by the client, via our services or often a mix of both.

A strong, successful digital presence most often requires constant attention to maximize effectiveness.
