The pain of an underperforming website
Your website represents your brand. And a site that’s slow, unreliable, or hard to use is a website that customers and prospects will avoid. Internal teams also suffer when small website changes are agonizingly slow, and big changes are out of the question.
Yet starting a web development project feels daunting, so businesses often feel stuck with the status quo, risking missed opportunities and competitive disadvantage.
With over 17 years of experience developing upon the top CMS platforms and a well-honed project management process, Group Medianet builds high-performing sites across a wide range of industries. We’ve overcome all kinds of challenges for our clients, helping achieve some exceptional results in the process.
What to look for in a website developer
If you’re not a technology person, it’s not easy to choose a technology partner to develop your website. Fortunately, there are qualities you can look for without reviewing a single line of code.
A genuine interest in your business needs. The newest and shiniest solution isn’t always the most appropriate. Taking an interest in your business isn’t just polite – it’s the only way for your agency to make sure the solution fits your true requirements.
Rigorous project management. Your website agency must manage time and budget as well as the work quality. Group Medianet has the tools, experience, and skills to keep the project on the rails and push the boundaries of possibility.
The right range of partnerships. A combination of breadth and depth is important. Technology platforms have different strengths and capabilities, and platform-specific expertise is highly valuable. But if your agency only knows one platform, guess what they’re going to recommend for you?
Assessing the situation, goals, and requirements
We begin by assessing your current environment and technology stack, speaking to your key stakeholders and tech leads. Our goal is to understand your business needs, and learn how these inform your technology requirements. If we’re also designing your website, technical discovery is part of an integrated discovery and strategy process.
