Please take your time and answer ALL of the questions. Web design and development is a collaborative process and needs your involvement in all stages.
Before you tell me about you, let me explain a bit about how I work:
All sites will be built in online site builder tools OR hosted WordPress accounts which will give you content management abilities.
I’m a big believer in your participation and training. My expertise is in building a beautiful, functional site, designed for your specific needs. I will create the structure, but for the most part, I expect you to provide the content. I will be there for every step and guide you, and if you want to learn to handle future updates I will assist in this training as well.
All sites will be built with 1 view for a Laptop/Desktop and a different view for a cell phone (unless you would like this turned off and just to have the 1 view) in builders or responsive design in WordPress.
Tell me about your Company.
What is the purpose of this site?
This section should include an overview of what the general purpose and goal of the website is. Please put an 🗸 next to the ones that apply to you.
Do you have a time frame or deadline to get this site online?
How much are you willing to spend? (If you don’t have a budget please provide a range that you are willing to invest the first year.)
Who will visit this site? Describe your potential clients. Young, old, demographics etc.
What action(s) should the user perform when visiting your site? Please put an X next to the ones that apply to you.
What are you offering? Make a list of all the sections/pages you think that you'll need. (Samples below are just an example to get you started, please fill this out completely.) Prior to completing your site I will also need the content for each page (if you have written content or images you want to use). I am also able to hire ‘Ghost Writers’ and provide images for your pages but there are additional costs that would need to be discussed
Do you have the written content and images/photographs prepared for these pages?
If not, will you need generic photos provided in some instances?
(Please note that before any real design work or site construction can begin, an outline of the content and preferably all of the content will be needed.)
Are you willing to commit time/effort into learning how to edit your site or do you plan to have me do future updates?
Is this a site re-design or initial creation?
If it is re-design, can you please explain what is working and not working on your current site?
People are coming to your new site for the first time. How do you want them to feel about your company?
Are there corporate colors, logo, fonts etc. that should be incorporated?
If you do not already have a logo, are you going to need one designed?
Websites of your closest competition
Please include at least 3 links of sites of your competition. What do you like and don't like about them? What would you like to differently or better?
Along with putting down the site address, please comment on what you like about each site, i.e. the look and feel, functionality, colors etc. These do not have to have anything to do with your business, but could have features you like. Please include at least 3 examples.
How do people find out about your business right now?
Have you thought about how you're going to market this site?
Do you have any social network accounts setup? (Facebook, Instagram etc)
Do you want links to those accounts on your site?
For those you would like linked, please provide the URL that will take me directly to that page (Can be copied from top bar when on your webpage/social network page)
Do you have a hosting account already? (This is where the computer files live)
