This information is gathered during stage 2 (from the Process tab).

General/Defining Goals

  • What are the goals for our site; why are we building it?
  • What is the central message we want to convey through the site?
  • What is our “wish list” of what we’d like in a site?
  • What is our budget range for this project?

Content / Organization

  1. What specific information do we want to offer visitors through the site?
  2.  What information do we already have available that we want to include in the site?
  3. What specific sections and subsections do we know we want to include on our site?
  4. What content do we need to provide that we don’t have yet, and where will it  come from; how will it be created/developed?
  5. Do we have any slogans/statements/taglines that we want to use on this site?
  6. What resources/services, if any, do we want to offer through this site?
  7.  How do we want to structure our content; do we have a navigation scheme in mind?

 

Web Site Pages

Notes:

Providing links to other websites for examples of what you are looking for are tremndous help. It doesn't have to be the whole website, perhaps it's just one feature on one page your found online. Look and feel is also great to see...a url is worth a 1000 words.
