How to prepare

While we do handle all of your website needs, there is some homework you can do that will help the both of us succeed and receive the best results.

1. Determine your domain name

With all of our plans you will receive a complimentary domain name and yearly renewals! While this may seem like low-hanging fruit, domain renewals are one of the many things that are easy to forget when owning a website. As a general rule of thumb, use the following as a guide when browsing using a domain name search tool.

  1. Short and simple
  2. Easy to remember
  3. Avoids trademarked terms
  4. Does not include hyphens

2. Assess your goals

When launching a new website, it is a good idea to evaluate the reasoning behind embarking on this new adventure. Every business has a target market, but without a doubt your online presence can be one of the biggest influencers in reaching new customers. Let's outline a few questions that you can ask yourself which will help paint a picture of success.

  1. What is the purpose of the website?
  2. Is this a brochure, e-Commerce, or even a membership website?
  3. Who will the website serve?
  4. Is there a call to action? If so, what?
  5. How will you measure success?

3. Write copy

Your story is best told by no one else but you! While we would love to help out in this department, we decided to stick with what we know best — website development.

Decide what pages will need copy, primarily the ones in which we will be providing custom designs for. It is handy to use a sitemap diagram tool to map out the pages needed and visualize the heirarchy or structure of these pages.

It is most useful to gather the copy into a Word document which can then be sent to us to design around and implement.

4. Gather photos

High quality photography and graphics can really make a world of difference for your website. Try and put together some photos that help illustrate your brand and what your business does. If there are no photos immediately available to use, we can use stock photography which will help in this department in the interim, and you can always come back later with new photos for us to replace them with if desired.
