If you are looking for a new website, there are a number of things you should consider before you start to work on creating your new website.

We have put together our top 5 things you need/should consider before you start creating your new site.

  1. A Business Idea: This one is self-explanatory. Before you start creating a website you should have a solid business idea. Whether that be a product or a service, you should have an idea of what your website is going to be selling.
  2. Branding: Before you begin creating a website, it’s important you have an idea of your branding. A logo is a good place to start. A logo sets the tone of the website as the colours used throughout the website should be consistent with your logo. You should also consider which font you want to use as this should be used throughout all other platforms such as socials to remain brand consistent.
  3. Content: Content is a must before starting a website, especially for a website with a lot of pages. For example, if you have several product categories or several different services that you offer. You should be able to provide at least a paragraph per product category and a full page of content for individual services.
  4. Images: Original images are essential; they really do make a website. Having good quality, original images can make your website really stand out especially if you are looking to sell products online. If you don’t have any images, stock images can be used but original images are always recommended.
  5. Privacy/Cookie Policy: GDPR is one of the most important aspects of a website these days. It is crucial that you have a privacy and cookie policy in place that covers the data you collect from users on your site. If you don’t already have your own solution, not to worry! We offer a fully compliant GDPR Privacy Policy for your website that’s kept up to date with changing laws. Check it out being used here.

As you can see, there are many things you need for putting together a website. If you don’t have everything listed above, that’s okay! But it’s definitely worth thinking about so your website project is not held back. The sooner you have all of the above, the sooner your brand-new website will be ready for go live!
