It doesn’t matter whether you already have a website and need to give it a makeover, or are starting from scratch. The first couple of things you want to clearly communicate are.
What you want your site to look like?
What you want it to do?
A great way to explain what you want your website to look like is to provide links to a couple of other websites you have seen and would like your site to look like. Maybe there are just some features of one and the look of the other, but these visual aids and communication, make it clear to the new website designer what you are wanting.
Now as far as business needs are concerned. It is great to make known where you are with your business now, and what you want your new website to do.
Will you need estimate forms? Client or customer surveys, reviews or testimonial options. Interactive features like leaving comments or uploading pictures videos? Do you need a secure payment portal for clients to pay bills?
Will you have a couple / few products to sell on the site that you want to be able to expand on? Do you need a full e-commerce solution right from the start?
Expressing to us how you want to grow the business, will let the designer plan ahead and build the website to accommodate the upcoming features and functions.
We at FMS Digital Media know that cookie-cutter solutions don’t work, and what might be a good website for one business won’t be for another business. We really do strive to have your website help you increase your business.
