Website planning for small business

As a veteran designer, developer and project manager on more sites than I can count, I’ve identified a common problem with many web projects: failure to plan. As the same issues come up repeatedly in my work, I’ve written this guide in order to help our clients, other designers, businesses and organizations plan and realize successful websites.

Website planning for small business

Immensely Helpful

I have been a web developer for nearly 20 years and when I took on teaching a course in Spring 2015, I needed a helpful guide to present to my students in web planning. Your guide has been immensely helpful in teaching the students how best to plan their own web projects now and in their future endeavors. It has also helped me in my many web projects as a freelance web developer. I am a much better project planner because of this guide.
