Produce the Site

Once all the feedback has come in on your alpha site, your team should assemble to decide on any necessary modifications to the content, design, or technical implementation. You are now ready to produce the rest of the site. From this point on, your production plan should be fixed: New ideas or changes in direction will throw you off schedule. If anything, you may have learned from your alpha that some content ideas are too ambitious, and you may need to cut back on some planned content, all the time keeping in mind how to best meet your mission statement, budget, timeline, and funder requirements.

If the site is large, you may want to divide up the production into several phases, bringing one part as close as possible to completion before starting in on the next. Try to develop an efficient schedule for getting content reviewed, copyedited, and delivered to designers and developers in a timely manner.
