What specific functions do I want on my site?
Much of the time, business owners haven’t given this question a lot of thought, and that’s okay. A great web designer will be able to provide ideas on functions that would make the website run better and provide everything you and your customers need.
But sometimes you do know about a few functions you’d like on your site, and simply aren’t aware of others. For instance, if you want a website for your restaurant, you may know that you’d like to include a menu on the website, a map of directions to the restaurant, along with contact info. But you could also allow customers to order right from the site for delivery options, or you might want them to be able to book their reservation automatically through the site.
You may not be able to think of everything, and that’s okay. Again, a web designer will be able to help with that. But you might want to think of at least a couple of things to give the designer an idea of what you’re looking for.
