A helpful, easy-to-use website begins with a clear understanding of your organization, its key services and products, and its calls to action. Over time, websites often become cluttered as your company grows and develops. We’ll help you sort through what you have on an existing website and determine what additional pages, features, and functionality you need.
Step 1: Getting Background
For existing websites, we spend time mapping out your current website and identifying ways to improve it.
We ask that you gather whatever information you already have about your business or organization and use that as our starting point for new websites.
Step 2: Live Content Mapping Session
Once we’ve had a chance to familiarize ourselves with your existing website or current assets, we sit down with you for a live content mapping session.
This allows us to efficiently sketch out all the information that needs to be on your website and how it can be organized. It’s a rapid, back-and-forth exercise using MindNode mapping software to visualize content. For most websites, this can happen in less than 2 hours, an investment that greatly improves the quality of the site and speeds up the design process.
Step 3: Deliver a detailed sitemap and page outlines
After the session, we’ll review our notes, ask follow-up questions, and deliver the final sitemap and page outlines.
