In order to build a new website, certain elements must be in place or else the end result may end up lacking in one area or another. A comprehensive list can be daunting, so in order to help the masses, we have distilled the list to five. Oh, and we're also so sick of lists that we decided to bag that for now, too. Paragraph form will do just fine for today.
First, you need an interested party. In most cases involving business, this is some type of client; however, sometimes it's an internal project manager for companies large and tech-savvy enough to commission their own web projects. At the end of the day, this person is the one who orders the work and knows what the overall finished project should be once completed.
Next, you need a web designer. And what a web designer really needs is input as to what content you will be displaying. These go hand-in-hand. In fact, think of your web designer as the one who gives your content its style, form, and placement. The content will be text, images, videos, and other documents you wish to include on your website.
Finally, you need the code to make it all work and a solid CMS to make future editing a snap. Good websites are always evolving and being refreshed with new content. If the backbone is solid and the content management system is straightforward, updating will be a snap, which greatly increases the likelihood that the updates will actually happen after the client takes over its management.
That's it. Once you have those elements in place working back and forth between one another, you'll soon have a new website created. Feel free to contact us about the easiest way to start yours today!
