Questions I might have for you
Multitasking is dead! I've found that working on one website at a time leads to a better experience for my clients and allows for more efficient work. With that being said there are a few questions I may ask at the beginning of a project to learn more about your needs requirements for your website!
Normal business stuff
Besides normal information such as who the main contact is and a timeline for the project I'll typically have a few more questions to make sure you are fully satisfied with your finalized website.
- Who are your customers and who are your ideal customers? What do they like and what are you providing for them? Are they conservative or more concerned about creative design?
- When you have attracted your ideal visitor to your website are they ready to purchase your services or just looking for more information?
- What do you want your ideal customer to do when they get onto your site? Sign up for your newsletter, give you a call or email? Purchase your services? Take you out for a nice seafood dinner?
- What other channels are you interacting with your potential customers on? Social media? Ads? etc?
- Do you ever write about your field. Would you need a spot on your website for a blog?
- What kind of business are you in. What services, content or work do you do?
- What is your unique offering in your field?
- Tell me how you fit into your industry? Are you a major player or satisfying a niche in the market?
- What do you offer that your competitors don't?
- Who are your biggest competitors?
- What types of websites do you like and seek inspiration from?
- If you already have a website, what is it? What do you want improved?
- Does anyone else need administrative access to your website?
- Please provide assets for your website (copy, headlines, products, about pages, etc.) images and a logo.
