Planning your website – before you brief design or development.
The key to a successful website, that generates sales or new clients, is in the planning.
GoodSense has a proven approach for planning websites that work for businesses. The output of the process makes it easy for web design and developers to do their work in a way that meets your commercial needs.
The first step is a 3 hour workshop to map what your different users need from your website. We prefer to involve key people from your team, including front-line sales and service staff, and your web company if you have one. This means we get the best quality input from the start.
Following the workshop we will provide:
- A user needs framework for the site, summarising the job to be done by your website.
- A recommended website map, detailing the content areas the website needs to succeed.
- Indicative wire frames for Home and one other key page, showing which content is needed where.
These become the foundations for successful web design and development. This approach ensures the site works for your web visitors, converting more of them to enquirers.
GoodSense does not clip the ticket or mark-up external costs, unless specifically included in our proposal. Third party costs for web development, design, photography and print would be invoiced directly to you by that third party supplier. Website design and development costs will be additional, billed direct from your chosen suppliers or specialists we can introduce (no commissions are paid or mark-ups charged when we recommend suppliers).
Here’s what some clients who used us to plan their website have to say:
“GoodSense helped us work out exactly what we needed from the website, at the start. They made the whole project much easier, ensuring we got both the supplier and the result we were looking for. They kept the project on track and brought their online marketing experience to every stage.”
