Website Design Client Questionnaire

Website Design Client Questionnaire

Every website design project begins with a plan!  We’ve created this Website Design Checklist to  help you define your requirements, preferences,  and resources.  The intention of this checklist is to establish a common understanding of the website that you would like to develop and the steps involved in achieving this. All questions are optional so do not be concerned if you don’t know the answer to all the questions, but the more information that you are able to offer the better.
  • General Information

  • A website can serve any of a number of purposes and fulfil a multitude of functions depending on the nature of your business and what it offers. We need to know what the aim of your website will be in order to build it to achieve its goals.
  • A new website is a fantastic advertising tool in its self but it will also compliment and be complimented by any other advertising you do. Understanding your current advertising will help us know where we are pitching your website.
  • Your business name is important when considering domain names. It helps with SEO if your business name contains keywords related to your trade/business.
  • With knowledge of your competitors and their websites we can identify niches in the market for your website to exploit and ensure that where it does compete head-to-head it has the advantage.
  • This gives us a target to work towards and helps us prioritize our work.
  • This can help ensure we only design what you want for your website.
  • A domain name is important for a number of reasons. It should be short, memorable and both easy to type and say. It should also be relevant to your business name and the services you offer.
  • Identifying the right key words and phrases is important as these will form the basis of the search engine optimization of your website. Let us know the most important words and phrases (in order).
  • Social Networking is an important way of generating interest in your business, connecting with its customers and driving traffic to your website.
  • It is helpful to know what sort of websites you like and what you like about them so that we can ensure that we design you a website that you will also like.
  • This is possibly the most important question in determining the nature of your website. We need details of each page and the key points of information and functionality that they will cover and as much detail as possible.
  • If you have any design ideas or general guidelines/pointers you want us to follow or even a completed website layout design you want to use then we would be happy to base the design of your website around them.
  • Yucatan design websites are designed using Content Management Systems (CMS) to allow authorized users a secure way of adding and updating content with no web design knowledge.
  • Normally our clients are responsible for delivering all content for the pages of their website including headings, text, images (and other media) etc. and we would ideally not start work on a website until this had been provided.
  • Social bookmarks are a powerful tool in marketing your website by allowing 1 click linking to your site for your visitors.
  • You can send out your own newsletters or we can integrate the email service provider such as mailchimp.
  • Yucatan Design offer powerful and economical web hosting for all our web design clients. Every hosting client also receives free SSL security certificate! We are happy to upload your site to another host if you prefer to arrange your own hosting.
  • Writing a catchy tagline may be the most important part of your home page content. The tagline is the sales hook, the most compelling message on your home page and often the starting point in your Website's conversion strategy.
  • Yucatan Design offer a complete social media design service for Facebook and Twitter. We get your pages setup and ready to go so that you can concentrate on dealing will all the new customers you will have. We can also setup blogs too.
  • A consistent image is important for a business. If you already have a logo and style then these will inform the design of your website. If you do not then they will need to be designed as part of the web design process.
  • The more fantastic images of your business and the services it provides the better from a web design point of view. These images need to be high quality to get the best out of them on your website.
  • Budget can be a sensitive area and we respect that costs should be kept as low as possible while achieving what is required. However, an idea of budget will enable us to steer you towards the most appropriate type of website for your business.
