I know at times it looks like what website designers and developers do is black magic. So, to explain everything we do when Web Prophets creates a website for you we thought we would look at the last 7 websites we created. The chart below is a break down of the time and build components for these projects.
The projects varied in size; some were very small and others quite complex. None of the projects were online shopping carts (a story all to its self with additional requirements); however some of the larger sites contained Ecommerce components such as Membership payments and online Donation Forms. None of the websites we reviewed contained Member login areas; being primarily public facing information based websites.
In April we completed a quick review of mobile usage based on websites we have designed & developed over the last couple of years.
In our review we looked at the analytics of the last 50 websites Web Prophets developed.
We broke these down into 10 sectors - which are the main areas we work within. Below are the outcomes of our research (all data is for the period 29th March 2015 - 28th April 2015)
