After getting a couple of website directives from new clients and being employee contact list somewhat surprised at the lack of planning/effort, I thought I would put up a few words about web design briefs. If you don't tell me exactly what is needed, I spend employee contact list much of my time trying to "think" about what you need.

A "Brief" is a written employee contact list specification of your website. We, the website developers need it and you, the client, need it. Some clients phone me and the conversation goes like this. "I need a website - 6-7 pages - some menus, how much?". Huh? OK I can quote the client, but he and I are both heading for a crash. One, he has something in mind for his pages - Flash, images, calculators, quotes etc, etc and two, employee contact list I'm thinking - here's a budget guy - so I will quote him for some simple pages. Down the line - "SMASH!". I produce something - the client wants more site and then I want more Money. meh!. A brief is important for a couple employee contact list of reasons. a. You get to work through what your site will do.
You get to chop out what you don't need. c. You actually employee contact list get what you want. d. You are Happy, your developer is happy and you have a long and prosperous relationship. Here are some bits that should go into your brief. 1. Business Objectives or goals. What are you trying to do - Are you selling? Providing Contact information? Starting an information site?
