(>) Part 1: General Information

Company Info


Company Contact


Factors









Budget


(To have a proposal generated for this project, a range MUST be selected.)



(>) Part 2: Products/Services

Reflect on why your company wishes to have a website. It’s natural for the initial answer to be “to make money” or “everyone else has one,” but if you never refine your purpose beyond that, your website will be limited in focus. Form follows function. The content and design of your website should reflect both why you are creating it and why people visit it. Start by focusing on the results you want to achieve from your website.

(>) Part 3: Audience/Desired Action

Who is your intended audience? What are their needs? Your response to these questions will help determine the type of information that your website should provide. First-time buyers, for example, would need a lot of “how-to-buy” information; whereas repeat buyers require more details (specifications, features, etc.…).

(>) Part 4: Perception

Identify the websites of competitors and others that may provide direction on the content, feature set, look-and-feel for your website. What are you aiming for? This part of the profile is very important. The more work you put into it, the more your project will benefit. Find at least three high-quality websites (more is better) that relate to your project in the following categories:

  • Branding in a similar situation to yours (new company, new brand, established brand, etc.)
  • Target customer appeal
  • Colors, look-and-feel, user interface, layout
  • Size of website
  • Publishing model (frequency, novelty of content, etc.)
  • Attracting visitors (newsworthiness, giveaways, impact, etc.)
  • Quality of content
  • Quality of graphics
  • Functionality (actions visitors can take on websites)
  • Community, special features, responsiveness, or other categories important to your project
  • Overall favorite websites (what do you like about them?)


































(>) Part 5: Content

Information or content forms the basis of every successful website. An attractive, easy to navigate, fast loading website that lacks good content may win awards, but won’t produce results. Your website will succeed to the extent that your information and your audience’s needs overlap. As you review the websites you have visited, analyze how they meet the needs of their visitors.






























































(>) Part 6: Website Flowchart

Sketch out the basic areas of your website and what you expect to include. You can type right into the boxes and define the names of your website sections and secondary links/sections. If you haven’t thought about this yet, that’s fine, and you can leave this blank for now. We’ll be working on this exercise together during the project.


= Section   = Links within section

If more space is needed for additional sections or links, please indicate so in “Part 11: Notes/Comments.”


       

(>) Part 7: Technology/Functionality























(This info will be necessary if you wish PixelGood to upload the website to your host’s server.)


(>) Part 8: Promotions

No matter how appropriate your website’s design, its success depends on an ability to attract first-time and repeat visitors. Promoting your website starts during development, with attention to search engine requirements from the outset.

(>) Part 9: Maintenance

A website is a process, not a goal. Stale, tired websites are an invitation to failure. Inaccurate or out-of-date information will result in a loss of visitors to another one that promises more relevant content.
