As you know, before people reach out and connect with you, they first check you out online. Need to take your online presence to the next level?


It’s taken us years to learn the art of launching sites effectively and efficiently—and we finally have it down.

Here’s our approach and process.



The vision and scope stage helps us discern your vision for your ministry, nonprofit or church website, including the functionality you really want/need.

The flexibility afforded by a custom online presence necessitates that we collaborate upfront to clarify what is feasible and avoid spiking your cost meter.

By the time this stage is complete, it’s important that we’re on the same page about the features you desire in the final product.

We can then agree on a Go-Live target date, rates and next steps. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty!



This is the brain-dump stage of site planning.

We provide you with a simple, web-based program so you can give us a solid idea about how you want the new site to flow and be organized. (Don’t worry, if you have no idea—we’re here to help!) Page titles are created and then tweaked to make the navigation super intuitive for end users.

THE GOAL: For a first-time user to get around your site easily with zero hindrances.

Once we know the basic architecture of your site, we jump in to help tighten and finalize plans. This is where your vision begins to merge with Resonate’s talent.



Users want to find relevant and compelling content and media when they hit your site—and so does Google. To be found in search results and for your users to have a pleasant experience on your site, you’ve got to be intentional about this.

This stage is where site projects most often stall out because it’s just plain ole’ hard work and requires legit focus. 

If you struggle in this area, we can help. Check out our work and services.



Now that we have page titles and the site architecture outlined, we can construct a simple visual layout of the site. During this stage, we sketch crude visual representations of your site that reflect the basic features and components you’ve requested.

Once you sign off, we’re ready to design a beautiful and engaging site for you!

To avoid an increase in rates later in the project, it’s important to confirm that the wireframes reflect everything you envision for your new site.



The site’s design flows from our understanding of your vision, as well as your existing identity elements. Oh, we can also help you with a sweet refresh of your identity.

Every stage that has led up to this point has created a more precise vision of your new site’s “look and feel.” Several members of our team often collaborate to visually bring your site to life. We design the home page and secondary pages for your viewing pleasure or total annihilation. We then tweak them until you are elated.

Yeah, it’s grueling work, but we’re fanatics about making it right.



Once you’ve provided an enthusiastic final sign-off on design comps, our development team goes to work writing code to create a robust site for you.

This process is very intense for our team as they write copious lines of clean code, consume unbelievable amounts of caffeine and lose precious sleep. 

But, that’s simply what it takes to build it well—and that’s what we’re committed to do! 

The goal is to develop a user-friendly site that incorporates your requested features, navigational architecture and approved design.



In this stage, we will take your finalized content and migrate it into the back-end of your new site. Once we’ve done so, you will have the ability to do another read-through of the content during the Verification stage.

This is when everything comes together and you start to see the payoff for the pain.

Oh, and you will probably get impatient, beg for us to launch your site prematurely and bite your nails because you are soooo anxious to launch. But . . .



Details, details, details.

To launch something we’ll both be proud to show off, we must sweat the details.

This stage can be the most maddening because there are hundreds (if not thousands) of details we must verify to ensure that your site is ready for prime time. But don’t worry — you and your team will be invited to the party so you can enjoy all the fun with the Resonate team.

Phew. Take a deep breath, we’re almost there!



After the site launches, you’ll need to be able to easily update your new site.

Unlike most birds, we don’t just push you out of the nest and hope you can fly. We take you to the back end of the new site and use examples so you become very familiar with the control dashboard.


rocketLET’S  GO  LIVE!!

It’s time to launch the site so the whole world can see it.

Our team remains closely involved at this time to fix anything that’s broken. Those same team members are a major part of the Hosting + Maintenance + Support solution that comes with any custom site we build. Just think of us as the fire department for your web fires.

They know that both must work in tandem, and they have a comprehensive approach to gain full clarity.

    In the end, the Resonate® delivers a detailed plan for organizations to implement with success.
