Planning an effective website

Developing a new or updated website can be a major task that will require significant resources of time and money. So getting the initial planning process right will help the project run more smoothly and will often mean that costly revisions can be avoided in the future.

Planning the website design and strategy process is an important part of creating a new or updated web site.Before beginning a website design, you should be clear about the site's objectives and how your target audience might use it. What structure and content will the website need and how will it perform its tasks most efficiently? It needs to be attractively designed as well as functional, with clear navigation, good usability and also effectively optimised for search engines.

The importance of planning is essential for the initial development of a new website and for its medium to long term usage so that any additional sections or functions may be added when required. With all this information in mind, you need to prepare a site map diagram and identify what information will be included on all the sections and pages before briefing a web designer to begin the creative work.
