What To Expect In A Web Design Meeting

Added 31.01.13

Previously, we discussed some valuable tips about web developers when meeting with their clients now this post highlights about the clients expectations from the web design meeting.

Meeting with a web design company about the creation of a new website for your business can be quite a daunting task for many clients, especially when attending the first appointment. Many clients are worried that they won't bring the right documents with them or that they won't know how to answer the questions. Well, here's what you can expect at the meeting:

Web developers

  • The designer will ask you about your goals or desires for the new website – do you want to increase sales, generate a lot of traffic or visually appeal to customers?
  • The designer will ask about your target audience and will begin gathering information about these people (what they like, what they don't like and what they expect).
  • The designer will want to know what sort of timeframe you have to work with; whilst you may need the web design ASAP, they will tell you how possible this is.
  • The designer will ask about your budget. You should have a clear idea of how much you can afford to spend on a website, then discuss how this can be achieved.

Ultimately, meeting with a web design company does not have to be the daunting task you have always viewed it as. The first meeting, especially, is more of a sit down chat in which you discuss the aim of the website project – the documentation won't come into it until later. If you are still worried about what you need to bring, clarify this with a phone call or email.
