Do you need a website and don't know where to start?
Time and money spent on website consulting and planning is never wasted. It’s a good place to start a website project!
Whether you have an existing website or you are starting a new website project, contacting me before commissioning any website project will give you invaluable help in making informed choices on:
Which technical system is the optimum solution for you
What short, medium and long term website strategy is the best for you
What design and development, image theme, navigation structure is the best solution for your website project
Website review and analysis
This is a excellent business report to have in your hands. My independent professional overview and analysis of your website, including recommendations for improvement and which future direction to take, will give you key information to take your online marketing forward.
Website planning and needs assessment
Planning is a fundamental component of the web development process. I prepare a thorough needs assessment before writing a brief and/or a Request for Proposal for you.
Website brief and specifications
An accurate and effective website brief or Request for Proposal saves your business additional hours -and hours - of development costs and aligns you with the right designer.
In addition, a brief will help you to achieve a better website, developed within the agreed timeframe, and gives you an accurate cost for the design and development of your website.
This helps with SEO - as well as with the visitor experience. I develop an optimised website page structure report for a new website project or an existing website.
A site map - which looks like a flow chart - helps to identify the exact number of pages, sub-pages and other structural breaks.
I will define the required content for each listed page, which will give your designer and developer a clear direction of what they need to work on and how the pages will be used.
Keyword research is an integral method of standing out from your online competition. Having a keyword research report for your specific industry will give you an important understanding of which keywords to use that have low competition in the search engines.
With me writing this report, it also saves time and money as content writers know which keywords and phrases to concentrate on.
An illustrative wireframe saves money on design and development costs. This is an essential method for complex website builds.
Once the structure of the website and the keywords are determined, I develop a wireframe which is done in grayscale and is designed to show clients the page layout and the flow of the site and give a flavour of what the website could look like.
