How to Plan a Website Upgrade for Your Business

The website planning template will guide you through each phase of your website project plan with questions on what considerations, steps, and decisions are needed. This is the proven website planning process our team follows when preparing for a new website project.

1. DETERMINE DIRECTION

First, you need to establish the “why” behind your website program. Determining the purpose of the website will drive a goal-oriented process that will lead to results that your business wants.

2. RESEARCH

An analysis of your company’s background and information provides an understanding of how your website should portray your brand, engage your audience, and compete in your industry.

3. DESIGN & FUNCTIONALITY

Before building a website you need to establish a comprehensive understanding of how the site should look and feel and what functions it needs to accomplish while all pieces flow together.

4. CONTENT & USER EXPERIENCE

Detailing what the site should incorporate ensures the pages are specifically created around your targeted audience and what they want from your site to offer a positive user experience.

5. DOMAIN SET-UP & WEBSITE MAINTENANCE

Domain security and website maintenance are not glamorous but the technical maintenance of your website’s performance and upkeep is key to keep your site up and running smoothly.
