Who is this planning kit for?
If you’re reading this, then the answer is probably: YOU!
In all seriousness though, we’ve put this kit together for anyone who wants to take a proactive, hands-on approach to developing a preliminary plan for their website prior to engaging a developer.
Even if you don’t answer all of the questions in all of the questionnaires, they will at least get you thinking about the answers so that when you’re ready to start your project, you’ll be in the right frame of mind.
What's in the Kit?
We've packed this kit with a whole bunch of useful items (and we're constantly updating it); here's what's in there now.
Lots of Questionnaires
We've included a couple of our favourite questionnaires aimed at helping get you in the right mindset to plan your website. We've included our standard Website Brainstorming form, plus forms aimed at logo/branding, and keyword research.
A Sample Quote
We've included this so you get an idea about what to expect when you ask a web developer for a quote. Plus, it can give you an in-depth look into all the parts that are required to put a site together.
A sample Creative brief, page brief and sitemap
These are some of the files that we used when preparing our new site that will show you the kind of thought that shoud go into creating each page of your website.
A Mutual NDA
We understand that sometimes you're nervous about sharing your ideas with others. That's why we're happy to sign an NDA before we start working together. If you don't have one of your own, please feel free to download our Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement.
You'd be surprised at how many projects start off on the wrong foot by overlooking this critical step. Remember: a failure to plan is a plan to fail.
