    We don’t just “do” we “strategize”

    Sure, countless agencies can construct a website or app for you. But how many truly think about your needs before building?

    At Fountain City, we’re thinkers first, integrating our creative and strategic strengths from the start. Instead of executing your initial vision, we add value by carefully considering your objectives, refining your ideas, and aligning them with optimal digital strategies.

    When we build a website or app, we are thinking about all of these things with you:

    1. What is the strategic goal?
    2. What are your business (and personal) goals?
    3. What are our marketing-sales goals and how will the website/app enable these?
    4. What is the customer experience we are aiming to create?
    5. What are your technical goals and limitations?
    6. How will the system be maintained, and what are the longterm implications of decisions being made today?
    7. What are the security and support needs of your endeavor?

    We’re in it together

    We don’t just deliver a website and then shift our focus to the next client. We’re selective about the partnerships we form, fostering them to last for the long haul.

    Success for us isn’t just about creating a site or an app; it’s about what these tools can accomplish for your business. This commitment may occasionally necessitate making tough, yet honest, decisions to optimize your resources and time. Your triumphs are our triumphs – we’re invested in your success. 

    In this journey, we’re in it together.

    Our Approach

    We apply lean methodologies, scientific principles, and structured project management approaches to ensure your site is a well-built, effective, and value-driven long term asset for your online business.

    Agile and Iterative Learning

    We uphold the scientific method as our core operating principle, emphasizing iterative, agile enhancements. We value launching lean, learning swiftly, and adapting rapidly over only delivering large-scale projects that may not resonate with users.

This approach allows us to glean real-time insights on user preferences and desires, enabling us to align our efforts with your customers effectively and efficiently.

    Project Phases

    All of our projects undergo a six-phase process. However, for more compact engagements, the initial one to three stages are seamlessly integrated. These encompass:

    1. Discovery
    2. Definition
    3. Design
    4. Development
    5. Testing
    6. Release

    Each phase, as well as the overall project, is given a dedicated budget, meticulously managed for optimal time utilization, quality control, and scope coverage.

    By segmenting the project into defined steps, we significantly reduce risk, facilitate smooth incorporation of changes within the timeline, and ensure cost adherence to pre-established expectations.

    What to expect

    When you choose us to build your website, we adhere to a streamlined yet thorough process:

    1. Learning: We commence with thorough learning sessions. This step involves comprehensive discussions to understand your objectives, key success metrics, significant constraints, and potential risks.
    2. Proposal: Armed with this research, we draft a proposal or a Statement of Work (SOW) defining your goals, timelines, budgets, and other critical parameters.
    3. Discovery: We initiate a deep-dive to understand your project’s specifics. This meticulous fact-finding phase allows us to build a robust project plan and create foundational project documents.
    4. Definition: With a firm grasp of your project’s nuances, we sketch out the raw concepts. We study your customer needs, aligning the project’s direction with marketing, usability, and aesthetic considerations. This phase allows us to refine the project’s blueprint and set a clear, unified direction.
    1. Design: We transform rough sketches into final designs, sometimes prototyping and testing depending on the project’s scale.
    2. Development: We set to work with clear documentation and prioritized tasks. Regular status reviews ensure adjustments can be made swiftly as required.
    3. Testing: With a stable release candidate, we perform extensive testing across browsers and devices, refining and polishing until the site is flawless.
    4. Release: Launching the site is only the beginning. We complete documentation, conduct training activities, and monitor the site post-launch, paying special attention to feedback, analytics and SEO rankings to guarantee optimal performance.
