Essential questions before a website creation

Creating a new website raises many questions. Are you planning to create your own website? Great! Before you start looking for your service provider, wizAcom has put together a list of useful questions to help you stay in control of your project. These questions will even help you stay in control of your budget! They are designed to define the project and, above all, to provide a framework for the agencies or freelancers you are going to interview. Let’s get started!

Prepare yourself with these questions before contacting web service providers

It’s crucial to consider several key aspects outlined in this list of questions before reaching out to web design agencies. By contemplating the context in which the site will operate, its desired functionalities, and its content beforehand, you’ll be better equipped to guide the discussion during your meetings. Rather than scrambling to define your objectives and requirements on the spot, this preparation allows for more productive and focused interactions with potential service providers.

  3. Who is your target audience? Defining personas allows us to tailor content to different demographics, considering factors such as age, interests, and purchasing behavior.
  4. Do you have a budget in mind? Establishing a budget early on aids in determining the scope of your website project and whether you’d like to explore multiple service providers for pricing options.
