Is it time to get a website? To prepare, use this easy checklist

To set up your website , you will need to prepare the following information and materials:

1. Content

You need to provide the content for your website, including text, images, videos, links and any other media you wish to include.

If you are going to use images on your website, you need to use high quality graphics and photography. Fortunately, there are plenty of professional, premium stock photos available online, both for free and paid if hiring a photographer is out of the question.

For example,

Unsplash – free
Pixabay  – free – paid – paid
Dreamstime – paid

2. Purpose and Goals

You need to communicate your website’s purpose and goals, so that your website can be designed accordingly.

Here are several examples:

  • Encourage visitors to contact you.
  • Get a price quote.
  • Buy goods.
  • Fill out a petition.
  • Fill out the booking form.
  • Find answers to the most frequently asked questions.
  • Minimise office administration.
  • Minimise the number of phone calls.
3. Target Audience

You should provide information about your target audience, such as age range, interests, and other relevant demographics.

This greatly helps to set up your website in such a way that it connects with them.

4. Branding

You should provide your branding elements, such as logo, colour scheme, fonts, and other design elements, to ensure your website aligns with your brand identity.

It is important to have a consistent look and feel across all platforms – whether on social media, printed flyers, or your website, as this builds trust with your customers.
