Requirements & Information Architecture

Every successful website needs a clear definition of priorities and scope. We provide tools to define your site from multiple perspectives, and bring the experience of pulling these together in an easily communicated plan.

Deliverables can include, depending on the project:

  • Project Summary
  • Audience Profiles
  • Site Map
  • Wireframes
  • Functional Requirements
  • Technical Specifications

Facilitating Client/Developer Relationships

While Saveda can build your site for you, we can also refer you to proven graphic design and development companies in the Portland area. We will sit down with you to define your project and recommend proven technologies. By providing you with deliverables such as an executive summary, wire frames, and site map, your time and involvement with development is focused and maximized.

Graphic Design & Web Development

Saveda provides services in web design, logo design, site development, site deployment – with both startup and maintenance plans. We can create a site for you using clean, classic HTML and CSS, but also can utilize a content management system to allow you to update the content directly. We prefer the WordPress CMS system because it allows us to leverage a global development pool and quickly pull advanced functionality into the site via plug-ins and other features.

Why WordPress

WordPress is an open source content management system that allows us to develop websites quickly, while tapping into an international pool of developers for dynamic and cutting-edge plugins that bring new features to your website. As a content management system, you can control the content on your site, allowing the people who know the business best to control the message.

Content Drives Customers

On the web, content is still king. It explains your business, peaks customers’ interest, directs them through your site, and is a heavy contributor to SEO. We understand that content is a critical piece of your site, and that it has too be looked at from marketing and branding perspective as well as deliver results with placing your site in search engines.

Web Strategy & Search Engine Optimization

Social Media  & SEO

It is no longer acceptable to just put your web site up and to expect your customers to find you. Placement in search engines is a key success factor and the game is always changing. A meta tag and series of keywords will no longer get you on the first page of search results. You need a more comprehensive strategy.

We believe in researching and identifying your target keywords and SEO strategy at the beginning of the project, so everything we build can be optimized for it. Then this is the stage when your site is complete and it’s time to turn on the spotlight and drive traffic to it.

Keep in mind that well-crafted efforts that improve SEO results also create a richer and more dynamic site that your customers will find more engaging.
