When you are starting the process of a new website, the first thing to ask yourself is “what do I want from this website?” It may be that you are looking to showcase your services, give contact information and get your brand noticed ONLY. Alternatively, you may want to sell your products and services online.
Things to consider:
Before you talk to any agencies, decide what you want.
Start by asking “what triggered you into deciding you need a website?” Do you already have a website, and if so, what’s wrong with it?
You might want to consider some of these broad requirements.
Obviously, you’ll want a website that works on mobile devices, looks good, works, and is relatively fast. I think those are obvious and certainly should be given nowadays.
