Website Design Questionnaire

Good planning is the key to a successful website and estimating the size of a task accurately is one of the more difficult assignments in a web design project. For this reason, I’ve compiled a few questions. Your answers will help me identify and measure the scope of your project. As a convenient side effect, it will also aid you in capturing your ideas and vision for your project. If there are any areas or questions that you don’t feel are relevant to your project, please just skip them. We can always come back to it later. Once you’ve sent the filled-in form back to me, I’ll work through your answers and get back to you to discuss the right solution for your business.

DISCLAIMER: The information you provide in this form will be treated as confidential and will under no circumstances be disclosed to any third parties without your explicit permission.

content is king“Content is King” Some things to consider…

  • One of the most important parts of your website is your copy. It should be as specific and clear as possible to the kind of client you want to attract.
  • Text content is particularly important for search engine placement. Without original text content, most search engines will be unable to match search terms to the content of a site.
  • Create an elevator pitch: An elevator pitch is a well thought-out introduction to your business as a whole. It should be displayed on your homepage in order to present visitors with an overview of what your company is about.
  • Be concise and precise: Writing for the web is different than writing for other mediums. Long flowery paragraphs and lengthy prose are not effective as the majority of web surfers quickly scan web pages for the information they seek.
  • Content is about getting the reader’s attention and keeping it. Content is about selling. Make sure your content is driving your customer’s actions.
