What was the scope of their involvement?
Initially, they reviewed my business plan and we had in-depth consultations to completely outline my goals. Next, we worked on a website navigation flow diagram, an assessment of content on each page, then a completed storyboard and requirements document. This enabled us to move on to designing the UI and UX.
Los Angeles Web Design did graphic design work, including art direction, layout, typesetting, and pre-production of website pages. They also provided rounds of stock photos that were confirmed by clients, and then a final concept with high-res photos before going into production. They also prepared web graphics and kept us in touch with their team leader to discuss all changes as they were needed to produce the desired result.
We had three phases, and the first involved the creation and implementation of UI graphics, design and creation of database structure, development of UI framework, and programming of all site pages. Also, they created a database and login system, including membership levels, set up e-commerce, and set up a system for renewals and subscriptions. A screenwriter's page for the upload and storage based on allotted limits was also implemented, along with a script management page. A CMS, along with subsequent testing and troubleshooting were also provided by Los Angeles Web Design.
During phase two, they built out all membership pages, added forms for uploading screens, uploaded video pages with forms for related data, and implemented project and screenplay search capabilities for higher level memberships. A project dashboard for viewing and managing projects and documents, video and DVD document handling, order forms for various site package options, and a fees page were also provided.
Phase three involved the implementation of discussion forums in member areas, as well as more testing and troubleshooting.
Los Angeles Web Design provided organic SEO, client consultations, keyword analysis, comprehensive website review, and site submissions for the marketing stage. They also monitored Google PPC ad campaigns, budget recommendations, tracking, landing pages, bid management, and accounts.
