The Planning

The Questions

Questions you need to ask yourself in preparation for the design to start.
  • What is the website for?
  • Is it a business card to show people?
  • do you want to attract new customers to it?

The Content

Next you have to think about the site content. Remember it’s not filling it with all the stuff you like personally.

The content has to deliver your business message. It has to do it fast too.

Most people scan websites rather than read every detail. It’s not a book. If you don’t quickly get their attention you lose them. The content should be the end product of the planning and the questions.

To help you with the content and copy check out our guide to website copywriting.

The Navigation

The useability of the site also needs to be looked at. In particular the navigation.

Clear and prominent with links to the most important pages. Simple understandable page headings. Good navigation is essential.

If the user experience is positive, they’ll be back. There’s a lot to think about. If you don’t want the stress – let us steer the site design for you. Begin your project now!
