As long as people will have hairs, barbers will be part of the professional world. Similar to the search for other online services and professionals, people also start looking for barbers online. To attract people and potential customers, many barbers therefore are looking for an attractive website which can serve as their personal online business card. Online visitors no longer only exist of people who using a laptop or desktop, but an increasing number of people have switched to tablets and smartphones to discover the online world and to start their personal search quests. Because of this trend it is nowadays crucial websites are not only designed for laptop and desktop use but also for tablet and mobile phone use.
The hairdresser, also known as Mari Styling, realized the need to create a brand new website and therefore appealed to a marketing organization in order to realize the website’s design and development. First of all the website development process started with the actual website design. The barber requested the website to be responsive because she wanted an optimized website display and a high user-friendliness for as well standard laptop and desktop users as for smartphone and tablet users. The created design complied with her requirements and upon design delivery the website development could be kicked off.
Outsourcing saves you a lot of time
The hired marketing company, which would take care of the website development, had little HTML and CSS development knowledge and especially focused on the programming side of website development. The organization had written its own CMS and used this CMS for all the websites which they managed and monitored. Thanks to their positive experience dealing with us various times before, the company appealed to us again to develop the fluid responsive HTML and CSS. Because they had deliberately chosen to use the same template for all website pages, we only needed to convert one page to HTML and CSS. Because the whole project had to be made fluid responsive it took our developer about a day and a half to develop the whole HTML and CSS. Upon completing the extensive and detailed test phase, we delivered the complete project to the marketing company which allowed them to start the actual CMS integration.
