website development

Embarking on the journey of creating a new website or refreshing an existing one with our company is an exciting and collaborative process that places your vision at the forefront. Based in Ireland, our team takes immense pride in crafting digital experiences that align perfectly with your goals. To kickstart the process, we initiate a thorough consultation, where we listen attentively to your aspirations and expectations for the website. Your vision becomes the cornerstone of our strategy, and understanding your unique requirements forms the foundation of our collaboration. Whether you’re venturing into the online realm for the first time or revamping an existing site, your input is pivotal.

What Do I Need To Make a Business Website in Ireland?

There are dozens of little pieces that go into your website. Where is your domain going to be hosted? What about E-Mail? Should you use office 365, Google Workspace, or something else? What type of server should you host your website on? How will you track analytics? How will you handle GDPR compliance? Which platform should your website be built on? What payments processor will you be using?

And that is just the tip of the iceberg. 

Don’t get bogged down in the details. You tell us your needs and we will build a robust, EU compliant website without any of the headache. We manage all services related to your website and you own all of it. Don’t get locked in with the wrong provider, work with the experts and find out how seamless this process can be. 

What Steps Are Involved With Making A Business Website?

Step 1: The Introduction

Book a free consultation and meet with a certified RainRocks Website Designer. We will have a series of questions to help guide you through the process. In this discovery meeting, we will better learn your business objectives for your website, your competitors, and your style. With this information we are ready to start the scaffolding process. We will determine which features fit your budget and the total scope of the project. We will also set start dates and deadlines. 
Step 2: The scope and gathering

You will receive a detailed itemized invoice for the total scope of the project, data protection and privacy contracts, and a soft demo of the final product. Once agreed upon, the work begins. Our next meeting will be gathering assets and copy, as well as logins, links, and any other necessary data. A shared drive with all project files is established and curated. Work does not begin until all required assets are received.

Step 3: The Development Phase

The development phase witnesses the transformation of ideas into a fully functional website. Our skilled developers meticulously bring the design to life, incorporating the latest technologies to ensure responsiveness and seamless navigation. Throughout the process, your satisfaction remains paramount. We conduct thorough testing to guarantee optimal performance across various devices and platforms. Feedback sessions offer you the opportunity to fine-tune details, ensuring that the final product is nothing short of perfection. 
Step 4: The Final Revisions

The final revision: The website is nearly complete, a multi hour meeting is scheduled in which every page is revised and approved. Any requests for changes must be done at this phase. We will run stress tests on the website and provide reports on performance, security, and analytics. The conclusion of this phase will begin the soft launch.
Step 5: The Launch

As we launch your website, our commitment to your success doesn't end. We provide ongoing support and maintenance, ensuring your digital presence evolves with your business. The collaborative spirit doesn't just create a website; it fosters a partnership focused on delivering the best possible product tailored to your unique vision. Your success is our success, and we're dedicated to bringing your digital dreams to life.

How Much does a Website Cost?

Let’s breakdown the cost of an average website:

  • Web Hosting: €20/month for shared services
  • Domain Registration: €20/year
  • Monthly Maintenance: €20-€50/Month
  • One-time cost for building and designing: €500+
  • Custom Domain E-Mail: €7-€16 / user / month
  • Analytics + SEO Tracking: €249/year
  • Advanced Security: €199/year
  • CDN for website performance: €100/year  

 

And that is just the basics. That is why at RainRocks, we don’t just build you a website, we manage all the services around the website. So you are not stuck remembering passwords, payments, and logins. You pay a low monthly fee to make sure all those services are connected and running properly. 

Using a website builder like Wix, Squarespace, Shopify, etc. ranges in cost from €11 – €384/month. Although, this requires you to manage all outside services and build yourself. Once you account all the addons needed for.

How Long Does it Take To Build a Business Website?

The biggest holdup when building a business website is not knowing what you want, which leads to constant revisions. Most of the time its centered around the copy: what wording you want to describe your brand online. This back and forth causes massive delays, so to avoid that, we provide a scaffold with text early in the review cycle, giving you the maximum time to make revisions to text. Understanding your business and how it should be presented is paramount to keeping a project on track.  We also use working meetings, meaning we will guide you through all the steps of collecting all your assets, logins, and billing and consolidate it down to a master document. We only work on one project at a time and we are highly organized. That is how we are able to keep our deadlines so tight.
