Ensure a smooth and successful website building process by having these important elements ready beforehand.

Web designers are often engaged before the client is actually prepared for their site to be built. This leads to expectations of build times not being met and frustration for both parties. The most common delay that crops up is content not being ready before the build commences.

 When a designer asks if you have your content ready to go, these are the types of things that they are wanting…

  1. Logo and branding: Your website should be designed around your logo and branding. Make sure you have a high-resolution version of your logo and any other branding assets you want to use.
  2. Text content: You should have all the text content for your website written and organized into pages. This includes your homepage, about us page, product or service pages, and any other pages you plan to have on your website.
  3. Images: You will need images to accompany your text content and make your website visually appealing. This includes photos of your products, team, office, or anything else relevant to your business.
  4. Contact information: You should have your contact information ready, including your phone number, email address, and physical address if applicable.
  5. Call to action: Decide on what you want your visitors to do on your website. Do you want them to buy a product, fill out a contact form, or sign up for a newsletter? Make sure you have a clear call to action on each page of your website.
  6. Social media links: If you have social media profiles, make sure to link to them on your website.
  7. SEO keywords: Identify the keywords you want to target on your website and make sure they are included in your text content.

 By having these elements ready, you can ensure that your website is built efficiently and effectively; and that it accurately represents your brand and meets your business goals.
