An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of… well, you know the saying.
Seriously, planning is important. Very important. Did I say planning was vital in website development?
Yet some people may not fully understand how much planning is needed when considering a new website initiative. They may underestimate the amount of time needed to think through all the stages of building a new website and training members on how to use it. To them, planning may be seen as peripheral rather than central to the success of the website initiative.
Before beginning your new website initiative, consider asking these five W’s:
- What is the main goal for this website?
- Why do we need this website?
- When do I want this website finished by?
- Who will manage this website?
- Where will this website be hosted?
Remember to plan your website carefully. Think through all the details ahead of time. By doing so, you will save time in website development, which is very costly. As you plan, remember to keep the “big picture” in mind so that you guard against building a website that doesn’t accomplish your main goal.
