To what extent is it helpful for the client to cooperate in the creation of a new website?

In principle, I offer our customers an all-inclusive all-round carefree package. After a thorough preliminary discussion (usually via email) in which all important questions are clarified.
I will research optionally professional images, create SEO-optimized texts, draft a design for your new website and make suggestions for the complete website structure, colours, typography, menu layouts and other content relevant to your success. Nevertheless, it is helpful and for the later success of the website, if we can discuss some of the the services offered, the goals and target groups, the planned number of pages and any design preferences, etc.

Some information we might need from you:

1. web hosting: do you already have a domain / internet address, if so, with which hosting company (1&1, GoDaddy, etc.)?
2. which products / services do you offer for which target group?
3. what goals are you pursuing with the website (pure information, generating new customer contacts, etc.)?
4. how many pages / menu items should the website contain?
5. do you supply texts, images and other media content yourself or should I take care of it?
6. do you have a corporate identity or logo that the new website should be based on?
7. do you have a reference website which you like in terms of design or layout & which we can use as a reference?
8. should the website have special functionalities (picture galleries, news section, individual forms, booking of appointments, etc.)?
9. would you like to be able to edit the contents of your website yourself later?
10. for which search term(s) or search phrase(s) should your new website be optimized?
11. do you want permanent support in the areas of updates & data backups and / or search engine optimization?

The more information is supplied, the better we can work together towards your website success!
