Getting Started

Setting up a website for your business or organisation can be a daunting prospect, but we aim to take all the hard work out of the process, and guide you through the decisions that you have to make along the way. Below is our quick guide to getting started on developing your website:


Step 1...
  It is imperative that you choose the right provider to work with you to develop your website. We do not pretend that we are the only providers available, though we do have lots of experience.

We will be delighted to submit a quotation and answer any preliminary questions that you may have about our websites and packages. Please contact us to answer any questions that you might have.
Step 2...
  Once we have had a chat with you about your requirements, or if you have requested a quotation through our online quote form, we will send you a document called a WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT BRIEF.

This is an important document as it sets out exactly the specifications of the draft website that we will build for you. We will send this to you either by post or electronically via email, and ask that you give us your comments and feedback before we start building the first draft for you.
Step 3...
  We will go through the completed Website Development Brief and from your feedback will create a first draft website. You will be able to access this website using our secure username and password-protected Development Server.

At this point we will ask for your comments and feedback on the draft and make any changes necessary. It is important to point out that we do not ask for any money up front - we do not render an invoice until the site is 100% finished and ready to go live.
Step 4...
  Once we have made all the relevant changes following your feedback from the first draft, we will start to add the content to the draft site.
Step 5...
  Adding the content is very nearly the final step - but first we must thoroughly test the site, such as ensuring that everything works, including the all-important cross-browser testing on different interenet browser types and versions.

We then normally ask you to go through everything and make sure that you are happy with how it looks. If it all looks good, we place an order for your chosen domain name, install the SAS - Site Admin Section (our bespoke Content Management System), give you full administration access and your User Manual, and publish the site to the live server. It is only at this point that we render an invoice for the quoted amount.
Step 6...
  Of course, we do not stop there - in addition to submitting your website to all the important Search Engines (300+ including Google, AOL, Yahoo!, Live etc.) we continue to offer fantastic 7-days per week technical support through our online Update Request Tool. We consider the launching of a your website as the beginning of your relationship with JMNP Ltd.

How long will it take?
This is a good question, and one that is not easily answered, as it depends on the size and scope of the site that you want. However, we are happy to work within the timescales that you have, and have sufficient resources to turn around site development very quickly and effectively.
