Planning and Strategy

We have seen a thing or two in our time and we understand how hard it is to get things done when you forget to plan your project properly.

Without Planning, You Have Nothing

Visual Lizard has been building websites since 1995. We have over 20 years in business as a company. We have over 75 years of experience combined. That means we have forgotten a lot! However, planning and strategy are key factors in whether or not your site will be a success. The process that has served us well is as follows:

  1. Listen
  2. Think
  3. Map
  4. Build
  5. Deploy
  6. Collect Data
  7. Return to 1 and start again.

While this list might seem like an oversimplification of what we do, it really is that simple.

When we first meet with you, we are there to listen and ask questions that will help us to better Think about your project. Once we have done our Thinking, we Map it out in whatever method we need to in order to illustrate our ideas. Once we both understand what needs to be accomplished to get your customers a better product, we begin to Build. Building often has several check points and markers during the process that allow us to readjust, refine and move nimbly across the problems we are working to solve. When our Build is complete, we Deploy.

Deployment is a fancy word for launching your new site. Usually this is a great time for a party! Upon deployment, we immediately begin to Collect Data from your customers. We also watch where they are using your site, what areas are working, where the conversation is taking place, or where the sales are most frequent. Depending on the success of your site, we return to step one at a later date.
