Checklist 1: Map out the Website
Websites start with a plan.
Here are the parts you need to include in your planning.
- UX Design (user experience design)
- Functions (what do you want the website to do)
- Marketing integration and automation
- Installation (if you have an existing site)
- Ongoing maintenance
- Tracking results
Checklist 2: People on Your Website Development Team
Here are the jobs involved in creating a website.
Many of these jobs can be done by one person, for example, “webmaster” and “developer” are often the same person.
Keep in mind that you need to have people on your team who can fulfill these roles.
- Project manager
- Content creator / editor
