Today I want to talk to you about what to plan for when considering a website design project. The first thing that you want to consider is what do you bring to the table and what I mean by that is have you thought about or considered some ideas that you have for your new website? Do you know your audience?
What are your goals with this new website? Do you like your existing site & simply want to make some small tweaks and updates or do you completely want to scrap it and start all over? These are all things that you want to think about before even starting your website redesign project.
The next thing that you want to consider is who’s going to be on your internal website design project team. Maybe you want to have people from different departments so you can have different points of views or different values based on which department they’re in. Or you may just want a small team where you have just a couple of people so you don’t have too many ideas floating around, which also can be a problem.
The last thing that you want to do or consider is accumulating and doing some research on inspirational sites. Now these inspirational sites can be websites of competitors or they can be websites of companies that are in completely different industries, but what you’re looking for is you’re looking for things that you like or that you don’t like on these websites, things that you want maybe to consider including in your website, or not including in your website.
Either way, it’s really important to start accumulating and doing some research on those inspirational sites so before you begin your website design project. You definitely want to consider these three things.
