Planning your website is one of the most crucial steps you’ll take, and should not be taken lightly.
There are many things that we could list here that it would make your head spin, but when it comes right down to it, it all depends on communication.
Communication between you and your designer/developer is very crucial. Without it a designer can do nothing for you. And the second most important, is that you have a solid plan of action.
Knowing what you want, whether selling a service or product, or being an affiliate to sell someone else product, knowing your target market, writing content, social media, search engine optimization, these other aspects all play a very important role.
Without them, you website or business, regardless of the the design, layout or functionality is useless. You could have the ugliest website on the planet and make an extreme amount of money, providing you have everything listed above in place.
A good designer/developer should always ask if you have a business plan. And many of them don’t. If you have a business plan (and your design/developer asks for it) then you know that your designer/developer is interested in you and your business, and wants to do his or her best to provide you with an excellent end result.
Having a clean plan is the first step in the communication process. Armed with this information, you and your designer are ready to embark on a successful solution for your business.
Don’t take the plunge without a solid plan of action.
Thank you for taking the time to get involved with your designer and your business.
