Are you ready?

Everyone wants a great website for their business. Read on for my tips on how to get it done — the right way.

I know from experience that working with someone else can sometimes be hard. Add a bit of distance or cultural and linguistic differences to that and the potential for miscommunications increases.

Getting a website for your business can be a very frustrating, time-consuming experience. If you've worked on a project like this before, you've probably come across different issues such as:

  • The designer/developer stops responding to your messages or doesn't do so in a timely manner
  • You don't know what your designer/developer needs from you to create a website
  • The designer/developer doesn't deliver on time or you are not satisfied with the result

This often happens when a website project is thought of as an independent process, where the owner of the business is not included in the process or the complete opposite: when the client is so obsessed with the details that they micromanage the developer.

When the wrong expectations are set (or worse, when you don't even know what to expect) then disaster is bound to happen, and both developer and client are left with a very awkward experience which none of them wants to repeat (at least not with each other).

So how do we avoid this situation and make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible? Well, that's exactly why I've created this quick guide for you, so you'll be able to determine if you are ready to get a new website — and start preparing if you aren't!

1. You are motivated

Or disciplined. Whichever works best for you. You feel excited about working with someone on your website. You are willing to collaborate with someone on getting you the best possible results and ready to do the work.

This motivation and discipline will guide you through the process and our sessions together.

2. You can make time

... because we all know that no one has time! But in order to make this work, you have to make time for it.

Building a website that will give you results requires you to be involved in the process, to give feedback on time, and to be available and willing to make this a back and forth conversation.

3. You've thought about (and preferably worked on) your content

Content is the life of the website so note that I do not start working on the design of the site without having all of your content first.

The reason for this is that I can only build a great site for you if I know exactly what your goals are and what you want your clients to know about your business and what you want your users to do on your site.

I could just build you a random website and just fill it with placeholder text everywhere - but you wouldn't be invested in it. And if you're not invested in it, you will not update or take care of it and, obviously, it won't be as successful. You would see the website as an expense or something you had to have "because everyone else does" and, honestly, it wouldn't be a fulfilling experience for either of us.
