What type of website do you want?
If you’re not sure what features or functionality you need, and you’re not planning on developing it yourself, it’s a good idea to create a web design plan or work with someone who can help put one together for you. The web design plan will help you communicate with a developer or web designer what the vision is that you have for the website. The web design plan should show where the navigation, buttons, text, images, special functionality, call out boxes, etc. will be located on a webpage – and at different levels of the hierarchy. This plan should be created before work commences to ensure everyone agrees upon expectations and results. When done correctly, a web design plan will help you maintain a consistent look and feel across your website and help you determine where to add future content so long as basic principles are followed. If you have never designed a website from scratch, it’s helpful to think about one as if you were building a house.
