Step 1 of the 9 step web creation. Getting the brief (and not boxers).
All jobs start with a brief, and all good jobs start with a good brief. So let’s go over some questions you can think about when talking to the new potential client.
Some useful questions:
- Website for a new business? Refresh?
- What is the purpose?
- What would you like to do with it?
- What is your product? What does it do?
- Competitors? How are you different?
- Audience? Who’s a good customer? Who’s an ACTUAL customer?
- Describe your company?
Some extra questions
- Have you registered the domain?
- How are your emails set up?
- What type of site? landing? one page? multi? ecommerce?
- Do you have an idea of what to put in the navigation menu, or what pages?
- Do you have the text content? Do you need copywriting?
- Do you have images? Do you need to hire a photographer? would stock images work?
- Do you have a brand set up?
- Will you be updating content regularly? Will it be fairly regular? Do you need a maintenance package?
That’s a lot of questions haha.
Do you have any more important questions that I missed? Anything to add? Anything else you’d like to hear me cover? Please let me know in the comments!
