Website Development Perth

Kick off with a Website Workshop

Our website workshops are interactive and collaborative so that we can get on the same page before we starting building your website.

Let’s spend some time together to plan your build

The majority of website developers in Perth and across the world don’t build websites the same way that we do. Perhaps you have had this experience before: you engage a website developer, you send them your branding guide, and they ask you for all your website copy and then throw it together and give you 4 hours worth of revisions.

This design process is backwards in so many ways. Even if (best case scenario) you end up with a great looking website, it will likely not work to convert your visitors into leads because:

  • It was not written professionally to convert visitors or capture short attention spans
  • The site wasn’t designed in a logical way to communicate your services/products
  • No proven frameworks like Storybrand were built into the layout
  • It wasn’t considered as part of a wider marketing strategy
  • It was not built on a platform that was easy for you to manage in the future
  • SEO was not considered or implemented

These things are almost worse than if you had not had your website re-built in the first place.

For years and years, this way of developing websites was the norm – and most businesses found the process of re-building quite overwhelming because of the amount of copy, decisions and elements they had to have ready ahead of time.

We wanted to change that and our Website Workshops are just the beginning.

Getting to know you and your business is an important part of any website build, and our website workshop is the perfect opportunity to understand who you are and what outcomes you are looking for so that we are on the exact same page when we do things like source images and write copy.

Our website workshops usually run for 2 – 4 hours at our office or yours, depending on the size of your website, number of pages and how complex your services are.

Learn more about what we cover in our website workshop below.

What can I expect in a website workshop?

Our website development process is collaborative. It begins with a 2 – 4 hour website workshop to get us on the same page, has plenty of check points along the way and ends with something you are happy enough with to even show your mum. AND we keep in touch.

Goals

We start by discussing your goals and the purpose of your website to determine what a successful outcome would be for all stakeholders

Website Audit

Together we discuss what you dislike, what is not working, what elements you do like and what results you are achieving so that we can make a plan.

Sitemap

We go through your product/services and work out the best way of laying out your sitemap. The less brain calories your future customers need to understand what you are selling – the better.

Copywriting

Lets have a go together at your one liner or your above-the-fold message. This will help both of us clearly articulate what it is that you do and who you do it for.

Look & Feel

Aside from your branding guide, what do you want your site to look like. Together we look at sites online, site inspiration from leading designers and our suite of existing projects.

Website Checklist

Lastly, we go through a list of items required to complete the site. These are items for you to source (e.g. logos, images), items we can organise (photography) and items that will need approval (graphic design, copywriting).

“Lumos Marketing improved our website so that visitors are now spending double the amount of time on our site and our website enquiries have more than tripled.”

Lauren HartOwner of Optimal Living Therapy

“I am so impressed with the Lumos team that I would recommend them highly to anyone looking to brand their services and build a website. Importantly, Lumos service is 10/10 during and also after the sale too!”

Laz RabinOwner Physio Mechanics

“Having worked with marketing companies before, I was not overly excited about the prospect going through what I viewed as the ‘chore’ of redesigning our website. I was encouraged by a colleague, who’s opinion I value, to meet with the Lumos team as he assured me we would have a very different experience……..and we certainly did!!”

Hazel RubyOwner Ruby Cubes

“Prior to any social media marketing, I was always stressed about what to pose and how to go about it. When Tegan and Mel came on board if was as if they read my mind!. The content was written perfectly and photos were well selected. My social media presence definitely has helped potential leads and clients connect with me.”

Loreta RoachOwner of Designer Home Extensions

“The whole process of our website rebuild was seamless & stress free, and the finished product has absolutely exceeded our expectations. Huge thanks to Cindy & Amy. Hope to work with you girls again soon.”

Jorja CaseyThe Collective Palm Beach

Our process is part of your success

We have spent years perfecting a website development process that is collaborative and helps you achieve your goals.

Our website development process is fun and collaborative and facilitates creative brainstorming, alignment and goal-focused idea generation. It kicks off with our website workshop that aligns us on the same page, then a constant stream of communication in between so you’re just as involved as we are. Once you’re happy with the website, we handover the whole website with you and package it all up for you so you can easily take over.

FAQs

How long does the workshop go for?

This workshop goes for 2 – 4 hours depending on the complexity of your website and your requirements. It can be attended by as many people from your organisation as you would like as well as 1 – 2 members of our team.

How much does a website workshop cost?

Our website workshops are free when purchasing any of our website development packages. If you would like to purchase a website workshop without a website development package (for example, if you would like to build your own website or take your project elsewhere) the cost of the workshop will be $150 per hour.

What do I leave with?

During the workshop, we will work through the items listed above and summarise all decisions for our internal records. We will send you a confirmation of these as well as a list of all the items that are remaining or required for us to get onto the build.
