Since there are a number of factors in creating the ideal website, the following key questions helps both you determine the ideal website— and helps me understand your needs better to recommend the perfect creative solution.
Why do you want a new website?
(It sucks, needs to be modernized, I don’t have one…)
What is the purpose/goal of the website?
(create brand awareness, sell products, compete, etc…)
What cool websites inspire you?
(Sites you visit that you might want something similar to…)
What type of people will use this site? (Demographics)
(corporate clients, teenagers, small medium business, enterprise, local, women, kids, etc…)
Do you plan on updating the site regularly, or “set it and forget it.”
Once the site is done, who will work on your website/implement changes, etc…
(We can do them for you, but you may have someone on staff…)
Will we be working one-on-one with you, or with a team, group, or other?
Do you plan to actively market your website?
