Define the Mood of Your Site:
- Do you want the “mood” of your site to be fun? classy? suit and tie? simple and clean? flashy?
- Consider your current print materials.
- How will your site continue to reflect your desired company image?
Think about Layout & Navigation:
- Consider your web site from the perspective of your audience; not your organization.
- How will visitors want to explore your site? Will they want to see a list of services? a catalog of products? see examples of your work? or get a quote?
- How do you want your customers to contact you? email? online contact form? phone?
Grab Them on the Home Page:
- What are the top 5 questions people ask you about your products or services? The answers to those should be on your site and easily accessible on or from your home page.
- Write a short paragraph or bulleted list that emphasizes your “unique concept or benefit” that makes buying or using your products or services a must. Will your motto work well on the site?
Consider Colors & Graphics:
- Simple color schemes and fewer graphical elements are easier to read.
- We can repeat your printed material’s look throughout your site or come up with a color scheme for you.
- We can use your existing logo or create one for you.
- Keep in mind that more graphics and photos increase load time.
Define Work Process & Schedule:
- What is the best way for us to keep in contact?
- How should we collect site materials?
- What is your target date for completion?
Additional Considerations for Shopping Cart Sites:
- How many products do you want to sell online?
- Can the products be grouped into logical categories?
- Do you have product descriptions and good photos?
- What kind of order method (s) do you need?
- Browse catalog to order
- Product drop down menu options
- Will there be quantity pricing or bulk items?
- What is your return or exchange policy for customers?
- What will your shipping charges or special order considerations be?
Additional Considerations for Content Management Sites:
- Define what type and how much content you want to manage. Will it be lists? newsletters? articles? a calendar?
- If you update a piece of content, say an event calendar, at least once a month, it’s a good candidate for inclusion.
- Consider who will be managing the content or if you will give the data to me to update your site.
