Absolute Priorities to Provide Your Site Designer: Getting Started
- Define your objectives.
- Company description, brief history, quality images (if available), what products/services you offer
- Register a domain name (your URL); we can complete this for you
- Review several competitors’ sites; note them and comment on your likes/dislikes
- Assess and note other websites as far as layout, style, navigation. Provide these preferences to your designer
- Note your fundamental pages (departments): i.e., Home, About Company, Your Services, Portfolio, Contact, Resources, Site Map, etc.
- Will you require a Store and shopping Cart for products?
Secondary Tasks to Provide Your Designer
- Write and submit your concise content draft (preferably in outline form) – multiple edits will accompany for enhanced optimization, be patient and be brief
- Choose a web hosting service (whom you rent your web space from); do not scrimp here, “up” time and 24/7 customer service are essential
- Save money and time – submit any press, articles, brochures, or other literature to assist with relative information, phraseology and text flow
Save Time & Money
Consider using template-style for your responsive design (example: WordPress). This requires considerably less custom coding so you, the client, have the option to perform minor updates. As well you will have more control, convenience, and save $$. And, the templates are gorgeous.
