When venturing into a new niche, creating a professional-client website can seem daunting because you are being entrusted with a significant marketing asset by your client. And your input can either make your client's project or break it.
Fortunately, we are here to solve your worries. We have compiled seven practical and straightforward steps that we usually follow to deliver a successful client website that exceeds their expectations!
- Know The Client and Find Out Their Web Goals
You need to get information from your client and listen to their needs. Use exploratory questions if your client doesn't seem sure about what they need. You may prepare a questionnaire before meeting the client to use it in this step. Listen to essential details and take notes.
- Choose a website creation platform.
The platform you choose impacts hosting, functionality, pricing, timeline, and pricing exceptionally. It is best to decide on the choice of the platform in advance because it forms the foundation of the website.
- Come up with a proposal and determine the project scope.
The proposal must include the identified deliverables, the terms of the project, and its cost. The proposal point is to show your client that you can deliver. When the proposal is approved, generate a detailed scope that describes the entire project. The elements should include the website's scale, timing, process, assets, accessibility, contacts, backup, and security.
- Develop The Wireframe
The wireframe is like the blueprint of the project. This phase requires you to define the website's project flow and user experience using a sitemap and visual layouts with online tools like Octopus.
- Create Your Website Content
The elements you need to put together include videos, links, product descriptions, call to action, and more. Understand and apply the flow of these elements on the website.
- Design the website and run a web test.
Provide an opportunity for client feedback as the website is taking form. Client feedback will help you know the adjustments to make. After finalizing the website design, do a pre-launch to check on the typos, working links, notifications, and online transactions, and study the site on different sites and browsers.
- Time To Launch
After verifying that everything is working correctly, choose the appropriate launch day and time of the day because it will be relevant to launch when traffic is low. If any hitches arise during the launch, make sure to solve them with your team immediately and professionally. When everything is working correctly, hand over the credentials to your client for access.
