When both sides — business owner and website developer — are passionate about our work we just want to dive right into the depths of a project and start creating. Of course, our love for what we do also extends to wanting to see each project launch successfully.
So we have to take a breath and begin by dealing with the (sometimes boring) details of planning a successful website, because a strong foundation is what streamlines the process and ensures that everything that needs to get done actually does and on time.
Sure, it’s easy to say that developing a website needs to start with good planning, but not all clients actually know what goes into that process — nor do all website developers. So, often the mistake is made that any planning is good planning. That’s just not true. Not with any project beyond the most basic size and scope.
That’s also why we’ve put together a core list of information a business needs to have on hand to share with their website developer, to ensure their website has a successful launch.
