Get Your Website Project Started
The first thing you need to look at when starting to build a web site is to understand what you want to get from your site. Are you looking to sell products or services online, attract new customers, or simply inform the public about your company or organization?
You’ll meet with a member of our team to discuss in depth your goals for your website. With an understanding of your goals for your site, we will be able to understand what types of features your site will need in order to meet your goals.
Concept & Design
The next step in the design process is to flesh out the concept of your website. Our team will prepare a mock-up of the site and present this to you. You will then have the opportunity to let us know what you like and don’t like with the concept before we move on to the next step in the process.
Register Your Domain Name
Key to a successful web development project is getting the right domain name. Lakeside Web Works has partnered with ICANN accredited Register4Less.com for domain registration services as well as website and email hosting.

We have also found register4less.com to be excellent in terms of technical support for both domain registration and hosting/email issues, and they offer outstanding value.
Coding the Site
Once we have collectively settled on the structure and design of your website, we will start the process of building your website. Depending on the complexity of the project, we may do this in stages and review with you as we go, or build the site in one phase.
Most of the websites we build these days are done using WordPress. The choice of the Content Management System (CMS) will be largely determined by the functionality required for your website. Building the site with a CMS also allows you (if you want) to be able to maintain your website.
SEO – Search Engine Optimization, Social Media & Maintenance
Again, depending on the goals you have for your website, you may wish for us to start with search engine optimization service. This will include maintaining a blog on your website, management of facebook, twitter and other social media sites, and keeping content on your website updated and relevant. Lakeside Web Works practices only white hat search engine optimization techniques. Each search engine guards their algorithms very closely as to how they rank sites, but it has been our experience that if you build a website that is interesting, relevant to your audience, and makes you want to come back to the site regularly, search engines will rank it higher.
