How to Communicate with a Website Designer

Many industries seem to have a language all their own. Legal, health, insurance, and the website design industry are at the top of the list. Our eyes tend to glaze over when we hear phrases like; "the party of the first part"; or "your domain name server points to the wrong place." As website designers, we sometimes forget that not everyone does this for a living! A few tips may make communication between you and your designer more productive.


1. First, talk very, very slowly. Seriously, we aren't that bad. Be specific about your goals for your website. Do you want to sell products or require product or tutorial videos on your website? Is a newsletter subscription sign-up form needed? Would you like to manage weekly surveys on your site or Blog with your visitors? The options are endless. Use your own words and allow the Developer to translate.


2. Be clear about your budget. Don't be afraid to ask for an estimate with options broken out with individual prices. This allows you to pick and choose necessary functions and stay within a prescribed budget. You can often combine pages on a site to minimize expenses.


3. Ask questions. Website Designers realize (or should) that we sometimes speak a different language; don't be afraid to ask for clarification. After all, it is your website.


Keep these three simple steps in mind when you discuss your website with your designer, and your site should be better suited to fill your needs.
