Project Strategy

QUESTIONNAIRE

Understanding Your Website Strategy

Essential questions that will help you understand your site’s strategy so you can build not only a beautiful website but one that gets you where you want to be.

How is this questionnaire going to help you?

Are you starting a new website project? Yay! That’s awesome. 

There’s just one thing...

One thing you can’t start the project without. And no, it isn’t a hosting plan but something way more important...

A strategy.

If you want your website to get the results you’re looking for, you must think of it strategically. That means understanding, clarifying and defining some important matters from the beginning.

Once you answer this questionnaire you’ll get a clearer panorama of what needs to be done and how. You’ll have a destination point, a compass telling you where you need to go and what to keep in mind.

Tip:

If you’re renovating a website a strategy is key too. This questionnaire will help you understand what isn’t working on your current site, detect needs and plan for improvement.

How to use this questionnaire?

This questionnaire includes questions about your brand, your business, your target audience and your future website.

Some questions need short to-the-point answers, others need more extended ones. But in order to make the answers useful try to write concise answers, with only the required information in them.

Along with each item you’ll find some guiding questions, explanations or examples.

Have fun :)
