important that these companies can be found by new and existing
via the Internet. Such sites are often less costly compared to e-commerce
but still have a huge importance in establishing a company's online

We are committed to providing quality web sites and services. This
is reflected by our consistent approach to quality management in
both the code behind the web site and the overall management of
the project. We pay particular attention to W3C specifications and
hand-code the majority of our sites in order to ensure that they
follow very rigid standards. In addition to this, we also test our
sites using different browsers to make sure that none of your visitors
will encounter problems. At Network Connections, we strive to make
sure that our projects are completed
within you desired timescale, specification and budget.
Ordering your web site
A web design project undertaken by Network Connections will go thorugh
the following steps:
Outline quotation - We will provide you
with an outline figure as to how much we believe your web site design
is likely to cost.
Specification and consultation - We will
require you to provide us with as much information as you can about
how you would like the site to look (colour, site navigation etc)
and an estimated number of pages you expect the site to have. If
you like any particular sites, we would like you to provide addresses
for these sites and explain what you like about these. We can then
produce a detailed
specification of what we will provide, how long we expect the process
to take, and also provide a detailed quote for the work. Providing
that you are happy with our proposal, we then ask you for a deposit
consisting of 50% of the overall costs.
Mockup - We will produce one or more graphical
representations as to how your web site may look. At this stage,
we value any input regarding likes and dislikes. It is important
to note that we will not start work on any site unless ALL the site
content has been provided.
Development - Once the
specification and the overall layout of the design has been approved,
we begin developing the site. This includes any graphical work,
coding, script writing and integration testing that will be required.
Testing - A 'Beta' version of the site will be made available for
testing at various points during development.
Deployment - The remaining
balance for the work is paid and the site becomes live. We then
submit the site to various search engines so that future visitors
can find your site.
