Now that you‘ve completed (or at least started) the process of researching your new website, the next thing to prepare is the site‘s content. This is a really important step that’s often overlooked.
As a web designer, I‘m quite often asked if I can design the site and then ‘slot the content in’ afterwards. The answer is, unfortunately, no. Think about your site’s users – they’re visiting your site for the content, not the design(!), so this is an absolutely crucial aspect of your site to spend some time on and get right. Trying to build a site without the content can lead to some major flaws as the designer has to make quite a lot of assumptions about what will be available content-wise.
Fortunately, seeing as you’ve just completed the research process, you should now be in a pretty good position to create the initial content for your site. You may even be feeling particularly inspired by some of the content you’ve seen on your internet travels. So, where to begin?
