I have worked with the team from Chalk n Cheese for 4 months now and have held off writing a review to ascertain consistency in service and the difference their work has made to our business. We have spent millions over the years in website development but especially on Google Adwords and Social Media. The difference the team at Chalk n Cheese have made to our business so far has been very noticeable and we are so pleased we made the change and put our business in their capable hands. Chalk n Cheese is focused on solutions and a breath of fresh air compared to previous providers. Communication with the team is seamless, speedy and results driven. I could go on but I'd like to say I am grateful working with a team of this calibre of professionalism. Feel free to call me for a reference on 021506789.

Handling some of the biggest online stores in the world, we believe that Shopify is the best solution for online retail.
 It’s not as customisable as WordPress, but Shopify’s platform is hosted on your own environment and can handle a limitless surge in traffic spikes; this makes it ideal for retail promos

our website development process.

The process of building a website is not always a straightforward journey. Each development phase takes time and testing. Every build is bespoke based on the type of website you want, the resources required, and the amount of code we need to write to make it all work.

Planning a sitemap

Every website starts with research and a plan. This allows us to begin building a wireframe or sitemap.
 This is a vision for the site that gives us a place to start from. Like a business plan, we take into account your goals and what functionalities you need from your site. A sitemap gives the developer and designer an idea of your ultimate goal and the information needed to formulate that vision.

creative content creation

Usually the longest part of the process - and the most important! The text on your site must be perfectly aligned with your values and desired messaging.
Because we build user experience-focused websites, our designs are focused on precisely relaying your desired message to your customers, and we use words to engage your customer, always enticing them to take action.

setting up the framework

This is the stuff that you can’t see that supports all the pretty pictures and the layout of your website.
Once they’ve read the brief and content to understand your performance and functionality needs, our expert web development team will start building the framework and platform to present to you for the design concept stage.

design concept

The design concept determines the look of your website.
This is where we target your audience by implementing elements like brand logos, colours, and visual style to help strengthen your identity across your website. A ux web digital designer will create a prototype design mostly in JPG images and make the final decision on the visuals once you have gone through the mock-ups of the site and given your approval.

completion development

Now all the hard work on your end is done, and you can sit back and relax while we go ahead and develop the rest of your website pages.
This process depends on the size of your website, but would usually take 10 to 20 business days. Once all the pages have been implemented, they are sent to you for feedback.

launch & on page seo implementation

Now that all the pages are done, and the site is live, we do a clean-up of the back end to get rid of any unnecessary code so that your website runs at optimal speed.
We tidy up the mobile responsive elements of the site, then we allow Google to start indexing the site. A key offering from Chalk n’ Cheese is basic on-page SEO - so that your site has the best chance of appearing on Google.

Custom website development

We can produce websites that are visual treats showcasing your services, but can also offer custom ecommerce website development services to create online stores that are impressively secure and intuitive with functions to upsell and cross-sell to maximise your profits.
