Planning your website
Planning your website may seem like an obvious notion, but can often be overlooked or downplayed. The eagerness to start the website design or just the fact the the site has to be ready to launch at the end of the month are two common reasons why. Not properly setting out a plan for your site, will, of course, lead to numerous headaches later down the line — ones that could lead to you missing your deadline, or having to totally redesign that pretty concept you made after building half of it out.
If your looking for a company and they talk about how cool a site can be and what fancy features it can have, then beware; that is all well and good , but ask about their methodology, and when you can expect to see a first draft of the menu architecture. If they keep showing you pretty designs run away.
