As part of our website design consultations at FCDM, our expert team will introduce you to the website design process so you know what to expect and when to expect it!

Like any other project, website design has certain steps to go through to ensure success and increase efficiency. A website design consultation is just the first step but following our top tips will help to streamline the process. At FCDM, we focus our website design consultations on identifying exactly what you want and need.

Here are some of our suggestions for when you are preparing for a Website Design Consultation with FCDM:

Set Your Business Goals

In order to assess your business goals and what you need your website to do, ask yourself questions like:

What is the most important thing you need your website design to communicate?

What pages and content get the most traffic or offer up the best ROI?

What actions do you most want your visitors to take?

If you have an ideal buyer persona, you will want your design choices to work with your brand image, but also reflect your customers’ objectives, interests, and the point they’ve reached in their buyer’s journey. Before the web design consultation, it is important that you understand your target audience, how they come to your website and what they are looking for.

Decide on Your Style Guidelines

During the web design consultation, we will discuss how you want your new website to look and feel. Before your design consultation, consider which types of imagery and colours would best suit your business and digital marketing goals.

Your colour scheme also impacts visitors but your dedicated designer will help you choose colours that complement each other and your imagery, or you can choose the colours you prefer.

If you have come across a website that you really like or a design of any kind that you thought looked fantastic please take note of it and take it with you.

Supply a Copy of Your Brand Guidelines

Most clients already have an existing logo, colours, or even full style guides. A brand guideline document is extremely helpful, if you have one please take it with you!

We would also recommend that you bring digital copies of your official logo, preferably as a vector file and any other publications or marketing materials that show the implementation of your brand.

Professional Imagery is a must!

High-quality imagery is a valuable resource to have on hand for when design process begins. Images of your store, team members etc are all very relevant and really adds person-ability to your brand and give visitors a true sense of your business.

Additional useful items for our design team are links to all of your social media sites profiles, your full official business.
