A successful website project, easier said than done!
When deciding to undertake a web design project, it is not always easy to know how to start. Design? The structure? The contents? The technological choice? It’s also not easy to know where to turn. An agency? A self-employed person? Or that friend we all have who can help us out with everything and who “won’t cost us much”.
Identify and understand your website needs
To answer his questions, let’s start by identifying the type of project envisaged. Is it more of a showcase site, a transactional site (of the e-commerce type), a site with the aim of launching a recruitment campaign or even a reservation site to guarantee occupancy of your establishment? . Start with an analysis of your website or your needs.
The more complex the need, the more relevant it may be to call on a service provider who can respond to the greatest number of issues you will encounter. Indeed, the more issues there are, the more the number of expertise required may increase. Calling on an agency or a collective is a solution that allows you to take shortcuts. It all depends on your own ability to meet your needs.
