7 Things I Need From You Before Designing Your Website

1. What is your website for?

This is the most important thing to be considered. If the designer don’t know what purpose that your website should serve, they can not create an effective one for you.

To do that, you are going to need to take some time to think about who you are, and what the core values of your business are.

2. Who is the target audience of your content?

Along with you business goal, you need to determine your target audience. Who will visit your site? What do they want to get from your site?

These are some questions you should ask yourself before moving forward to build your website.

3. Your Content

The most important element of a website is well written page copy. The website content will for the most part dictate how the layout will look, along with other elements including images, video or infographics.

I recommend putting together a list of ‘must-haves’ for your website. The four categories that I recommend are Design, Content, Functionality, and SEO.

5. Your Goals

To be effective, each page of your website should have a goal. If you want to book more clients, get more page views, or get people into a sales funnel – these things are call to actions and need to be placed in a prominent position. There are ways that a designer can put your pages together to make your goals easier to achieve.

6. Functionality

What do you want your website to do? Does it need a custom form or contact enquiry form, does it require calculations or something more complex. A web designer needs to know these things because they determine the scope of your website project and how much work is required to complete the website.

7. Your Budget?

The average cost for a professional looking website varies from hundreds to thousands. Start with a grand total including other things like content development, site architecture which covers your entire project. Break it down to see how much it will cost for an individual part and stick to the basics if you are on a tight budget.
