We wish we could read minds
Mind reading would make website development a lot easier, but we can’t read minds. So creating the website you want requires some serious thought and discussion with us about a few things regarding your business. These things include:
- Your goals for your website — what do you want it to do for your business?
- What does your business most need right now to grow in the right direction?
- What are the three main things you want the world to know about your business?
On that last point, you need to remember that with a website online you are competing against a huge pool of other businesses on the Internet. So you need to know what makes your company different from all the others providing the same service. What makes your business or your message the best choice for the many online customers who have the chance to visit your website?
So your website has to be more than just a mere step in your marketing plan. Your website needs to be the embodiment of all your marketing — everything that’s good about you, your employees and your business presented in a dynamic format that fits your style and the needs of your clientele. We can step up to the challenge of creating your website, but only if you are willing to take the time to think about what you want to say to the more than two billion (and growing) Internet users who may be interested in your services.
If that task seems difficult, don’t worry, we can help you out. That’s why we’re here. And we’ve developed a few tools to make collecting this information a little easier for you. The process will involve an interview and some e-mails exchanged back and forth, a business analysis and a questionnaire.
But why do I have to fill out a questionnaire?
Keep in mind that we could just churn out websites, one after the other, duplicating prior projects, but that’s not our goal nor the way we do business. We’re here to build a product that works for our clients exactly the way they want it to work. The more thought you put into what you’re after and the more information you provide up front, the better the end result.
In the meantime, we’ll keep working on that mind-reading thing.
