What to bring to a web design consultation?

SEO & Marketing David Rowlands

So you are all set to meet with your web design agency in Melbourne to discuss your web design project. But you don’t know what to expect from the consultation. At Digital Developments, we begin with a web design consultation to understand exactly what you want. This helps us get to know our clients better and create a customised solution for you.

However, it helps to be prepared. You can make the most of your design consult by coming prepared and by bringing some specific things to the table. Let’s take a look at the things you can bring to make the most of your web design consultation with our web design team in Melbourne.

Understand Your Target Audience

Begin by clarifying the purpose of your website. This will give you clarity.

It is very important to understand your target audience, how they find your website, and what they are after. Determine who your ideal customer is, what interests them, what their goals and objectives are and what their progress is in the buyer’s journey.

What’s the most critical information do you want to communicate? What action do you want your visitors to take?

Come prepared with all this information so our design team can create a design that caters to your target audience.

Inspiration

There could be design features and elements you really like and might want to make a part of your website. It could be an entire website or a particular element of a website.

Create a list of URLs of websites that you find inspiring and stunning so you can communicate your vision to us better.

Our web design Melbourne team may not incorporate all the ideas, but we can surely implement ideas that work well for your website and your target audience to create a stunning website.

Brand

Bring along your company style guide, if you already have one.

Bring digital copies of your logo and any other marketing collateral that demonstrates the use of your brand. Be sure to bring the official version of your logo to avoid any confusion.

Photographs

We are in an extremely visual world. With the barrage of communication from all corners, our attention spans are becoming shorter. And a picture speaks eloquently. However, not all kinds of photography work – such as stock photos.

That’s why it is important to use high quality, real photographs. If you have photographs of your store, your products and your staff, bring them along. They will add immense value to your website and add credibility and trustworthiness to your website.  

The Essentials

There are a lot of small details that may go unnoticed. So be sure to create a list of all such details including:

• Links to your social media profiles
• An email address that is actively monitored – for your contact forms
• Business name and street address you want to mention in the contact form
• Phone number
• A list of pages you would like for your website

Let’s Get Started

We hope this useful brief will help you in preparing for your web design consultation. Once you have most of the things listed above in place, give us a call to get things started.
