5 things we need to know before building your website!

developers need to knowWith so many different aspects developing a website you may be a little bit confused as to what you need for us developers to get up and running. Thankfully it’s pretty straight forward, all you really need are the following.


1. What do you want your website to do?

Is it going to be a blog, or do you just want a static site? is it a portfolio? a gallery? Maybe you need all of the above, this is the first step and the most helpful into us developing a killer site to suit your needs.


2. What sort of content do you have?

Content will make or break a website, generally developers won’t provide content for you so it is best to have stuff prepared. This consists of all the images you would like used as well as the text.


3. Who is your target audience?

this goes a long way in the design, a baby boomer does not use a website like a member of gen y would. As well as the obvious design differences, choice of wording and the like.


4. What sort of budget do you have?

A good website will set you back anywhere between $800 and $15k. There are a lot of different factors that determine a price and if you come in with a set budget your developer will be able to tailor a site for you much easier.


5. When is your deadline?

this one sometimes slips under the radar in the freelance game. Developers often have multiple projects on the go and need to know what to prioritise. Consequently it gives the developer a good Idea of what sort of site that they can produce in that given amount of time.

There you have it! bring these things to the table and your Web Developer/Guru/handsome Genius will love you long time!
