“Failing to plan is planning to fail”
(free printable website planner at bottom of page)
Before you consider approaching a web designer or agency for help with a website you need to get clear on what your goals are. Believe us when we tell you that clarity on your goals will save you time, hassle and even money in the long run.
Sit back and imagine yourself in a years time with your website up and running. What does it mean for your business? Don’t think about running it, cost, or time scale – what is this website doing for you and your company?
Think bigger than just “I need to get online so people can find out about my business” or “I know I need a website because everyone has one”.
We’ve put together a website planner sheet to help you evaluate what exactly it is you want and need from a website, so that you are in a much stronger position to start your web project.
The sky really is the limit here and the aim is to get you thinking about actually using your site – there’s no right or wrong so just write down any of your ideas and picture your future self using the site.
Here’s an example…
When you are done you can evaluate. Seeing all your thoughts written out in front of you gives you the power to really hone in on certain ideas, gauge which might not really be feasible and ultimately work out a plan for how your website can be a growth tool for your business.
Here at ZEAL we encourage everybody to educate yourself as much as you can and always be willing to try something new. Give this a go and see what you come up with (share on Facebook or Twitter #zealireland).
We would love to help you with any questions or plans you want to put into action.
