Client Checklist for New Websites

What Your Website Designer Will Need from You

This is intended as a quick guide to help in the development of your new website.

Pre-design phase:
  • Purpose and Goals
  • Audience and reach (Local, regional, national)
  • Existing print collateral (PDF format)
  • Examples of web sites you like (including competitors)
  • Time frame and budget
  • Domain name and registrar information (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.)
  • Hosting preference (if applicable)

Design phase:
  • Sitemap (simple outline of page hierarchy)
  • Company logo or branding (AI, EPS, GIF, JPG, PNG, TIF format)
  • Company contact information, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers
  • Text copy (MS Word, or similar word-processing format)
  • Relevant photos or diagrams (JPG or PNG format)
  • Social network handles (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Pinterest, YouTube, LinkedIn)

Post design phase:
  • Google account email address (Analytics)

Communication is the key to ensuring a successful website launch. Hopefully this helps set expectations so that client / designer are on the same page. Good luck!
