Below, we will take you through the six major steps of our Guelph website development process. We share this information with you so you know what to expect when you build a website with Topsite. You are always welcome to reach out to our friendly team if you still have questions.

First Meeting

It all starts with a meeting. We will schedule a time for you to meet one of our team members either in person or over the phone. During this time, we will discuss the scope of your project and gather all the information we need to provide you with a final quote and get to work on building your beautiful new website.

Follow-Up Email

We will send over an email with the project details and pricing for you to review. You can then let us know if you’d like us to move forward with the project. We may need to meet with you again before the project begins, either in-person or virtually, to gather more details for complex projects.


Design Preview

Once our designer has created your new website design concept, we will develop a live homepage for your review. This will give you an idea of the direction we’re taking with the design and layout, giving you the opportunity to provide feedback before the rest of the website is developed.

Main Development

Once your homepage design is approved, our team will complete the rest of the development. Taking time to implement any feedback from the homepage design. This is typically the longest part of the process, where our team dedicates a lot of hours to building out the bulk of your website.

Final Preview

Once the development is complete, we’ll send you a link to the site so you can review it. You will provide us with any final feedback for the website, and once you’re happy with the final site, we’ll work on getting it online.


Once your website is live, we will set up a time for a consultation. This can be done in-person, online, or over the phone. We use this time to go over any final questions about the website, as well as provide some training for making small updates to the website yourselves.
