General Information Briefly explain why you want a new website and how it will benefit your business.

Describe how you currently advertise/attract new customers.
A new website is a fantastic advertising tool in its self but it will also compliment and be complimented by any other advertising you do. Understanding your current advertising will help us know where we are pitching your website.
What is your business’s name?
Your business name is important when considering domain names. It helps with SEO if your business name contains keywords related to your trade/business.
Please list your top (up to 5) competitors (and their websites if applicable)
With knowledge of your competitors and their websites we can identify niches in the market for your website to exploit and ensure that where it does compete head-to-head it has the advantage.
What is your deadline for getting the new website live?
This gives us a target to work towards and helps us prioritize our work.
Please detail anything that you specifically do not want to have on your website.
This can help ensure we only design what you want for your website.
Do you have a domain name in mind or already registered?
A domain name is important for a number of reasons. It should be short, memorable and both easy to type and say. It should also be relevant to your business name and the services you offer.
If you were looking for your business in a search engine, what words/phrases would you search for?
Identifying the right key words and phrases is important as these will form the basis of the search engine optimization of your website. Let us know the most important words and phrases (in order).

Social Networking is an important way of generating interest in your business, connecting with its customers and driving traffic to your website.

It is helpful to know what sort of websites you like and what you like about them so that we can ensure that we design you a website that you will also like.
What different web pages do you want to have on your site and what different features do you want to include on these pages?
This is possibly the most important question in determining the nature of your website. We need details of each page and the key points of information and functionality that they will cover and as much detail as possible.
Do you already have an idea of what you want your website to look like - can you provide images/examples?
If you have any design ideas or general guidelines/pointers you want us to follow or even a completed website layout design you want to use then we would be happy to base the design of your website around them.
How often will your site be updated and do you need to be able to make frequent updates yourself?
Yucatan design websites are designed using Content Management Systems (CMS) to allow authorized users a secure way of adding and updating content with no web design knowledge.
Are you able to provide all the content (text and images etc.) for the different pages of your site?
Normally our clients are responsible for delivering all content for the pages of their website including headings, text, images (and other media) etc. and we would ideally not start work on a website until this had been provided.
Do you want to include share/like buttons for the popular social networking pages on your site?
Social bookmarks are a powerful tool in marketing your website by allowing 1 click linking to your site for your visitors.
Will you be publishing a newsletter? If so, what email service provider will you use?
You can send out your own newsletters or we can integrate the email service provider such as mailchimp.

Do you have a tag line?
Writing a catchy tagline may be the most important part of your home page content. The tagline is the sales hook, the most compelling message on your home page and often the starting point in your Website's conversion strategy.
Do you want us to setup any social networking pages for you?
Yucatan Design offer a complete social media design service for Facebook and Twitter. We get your pages setup and ready to go so that you can concentrate on dealing will all the new customers you will have. We can also setup blogs too.
Do you have a logo and/or established image and branding guidelines e.g. fonts, colour schemes etc?
A consistent image is important for a business. If you already have a logo and style then these will inform the design of your website. If you do not then they will need to be designed as part of the web design process.
Are you able to provide us with high quality images to be used on your website and do you have permission to use these images?
The more fantastic images of your business and the services it provides the better from a web design point of view. These images need to be high quality to get the best out of them on your website.
What is your budget for your new website?
Budget can be a sensitive area and we respect that costs should be kept as low as possible while achieving what is required. However, an idea of budget will enable us to steer you towards the most appropriate type of website for your business.
