Full service web development
Working with us
For all of our web development projects we have a four phased approach. It's critical to start with a solid understanding of what's being built, who it's being built for and what the quantifiable goals are for success.
Planning & Content Development : We work with you to get information about your business and your goals for a new website. From there, we'll do internal research on the project to build out a strategy document, sitemap and wireframes. These documents will give us the foundation for content requirements.
Design : Based on the progress made in the planning phase we'll take what we've learned and translate those into flat design files that represent the look and feel of the new site.
Development : In this phase we'll build out the customer facing portion of your site and any CMS implementations that are necessary. For standard websites we'll keep you in the loop as we add features and move throu the development phase.
Launch : Launching a website is more than just taking the code from the development server to the production server. We'll handle all the steps of geting your website live to the world.
After your new website goes live
We won't leave you high-and-dry. Our best work is done when we get to partner with the companies we work with. That means we're in it for the long haul. We have a connection to the work we do and we stand by what we build. Your site was designed and developed by us and we want it to succeed as much as we know you do. Our clients are more like partners in the success of the website. If you've read this far, the point is that we will be here in the short term and the long term after your site goes live.
Wordpress development & content management
We have extensive knowledge of Wordpress and the core code base. At Flywheel we've built a tool that let's use rapidly build and customize the Wordpress administrative section to make controlling your site as easy as possible. Using Wordpress' functionality where it makes sense and building new features where it doesn't.
Other content management systems
Throughout our careers we've worked in a lot of different content management systems. Not every website needs the same functionality and that means no one CMS rules them all. While our preference is to use Wordpress or a more custom application we can work within a wide range of content management systems.
Staying current without chasing trends
Problem solving is in our DNA at Flywheel. Today's internet is like dog years... in hyperdrive. If you don't keep up with the most current development practices you're behind the times and if you chase every new technology you'll go crazy. With over 30 years of collective experience we have the knowledge and understanding to keep our development skills current while making sure we're creating a product that will last.
