How It Works

worksheader

It may seem a bit confusing when it comes to what you want (or need) in your website. In order for us to design the best possible website for your business, we want you to think about a few points (don’t worry, I promise this won’t be painful).

First things first – This should go without saying, but here are the main things we would like to know up front:

  • Business name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Do you already have a domain name or hosting (we can supply both if you need them)
  • What purpose your site will serve
  • Will you supply the text, pictures, logos, or graphics
  • Do you require a content management site (one that you can log into and change the content), or a static site (sort of a ‘set it and forget it’ site)
  • Do you plan on selling products
  • What is your budget – Note On Budget: That seems like a scary question, but I have had people ask me to design a website exactly like the New York Times site.  They swore it would only take a couple of hours and were willing to pay me a couple hundred bucks to get it done.  It didn’t take me long to realize they probably live on the planet Venus, and can levitate large objects with their mind.  The truth is, most people want websites that clearly cost tens of thousands of dollars, FYI, that Times website, the newspaper paid a measly 40 million on the design and years in development (who lives on Venus now?)

Luckily for you, we can design a great looking highly functional site to fit your budget, no matter how large or small.

It would be extremely helpful to get some other information from you as well.

Functionality – Seems like a scary concept, but it’s actually pretty easy to determine based on the general information we ask for above. But being the greedy designers we are…we want more!

It would be a great idea if you could show us some sites on the web you like, and tell us what you like, or dislike about them. They can be your competitors, or just sites that you like the look and feel of.  Most people don’t know exactly how to describe what they want, but by showing us the sites you like, we can get a better idea.  Sometimes, there is a feature or two you didn’t even know existed.

Design – As mentioned above, showing us sites you like is a great way for us to get a perfect fit between functionality and design. We would also like to know what type of presence you want to convey.  There are all types of designs on the web, from the dark themes (think gaming sites) to the cutesy (think child photograpers, or make-up sites), to the corporate (think doctors, or lawyers) to ecommerce (think 1800flowers.com) to well…just about anything.

Also, if you prefer certain colors, maybe to match your branding/logo, we can work that into the design as well.

Well, that’s about all we need to get started designing your new website.  We may have a few more questions, depending on what type of site you desire, but like I promised in the beginning, that wasn’t too painful, was it?
