Welcome to Step 3 of my five part series on working with a web designer.
Creating the website of your dreams is what every designer want to do, but there are some key things you can do to help the process. Now it’s time to really get your ducks in a row and prepare the answers every web designer is going to ask you anyway.
Step 3: Prepare Your Answers
Some fine tuning will inevitably happen, but there are some basics you need to know when you initially contact your designer. Those websites your researched and those notes you took in Step 1, those are going to be really handy.
When you initially contact a designer you think will be a good fit, let them know things like
- your timeline
- your budget
- if you have existing branding
- if you need a copywriter
- the features you’re looking for (like web banners, photo galleries and email marketing integration)
- links to websites that give you the feeling you want yours to have.
The more you tell them the more likely they’ll be excited to work with you, and they’ll be able to come back with a really accurate time and budget proposal for the project.
