Website Content Checklist

Our Website Content Checklist

Website content is often the bottleneck in the web development process so we put together this Website Content Checklist so you can see what is needed so it’s not so overwhelming.

We offer copywriting services so if you need help with your content creation we can add that to any website build but the copy will need approval before we start on the website pages design.

At Minx, we do not start work on any website until we have all the agreed content, whether that be copy, graphics or both. Without the website content to start with, it may mean a lot of redesigning your webpage.

We have learnt the hard way that content is the reason that some projects stall or worse, come to a grinding halt.

It can be a struggle when it comes to writing website content to sell your offer or speak about your brand in a way that is not “salesy” yet drives the message across.

There is a fine line, however, to navigate that tightrope you will need to know how to really talk about your message in a way that attracts the clients you ideally want to work with.

We’ve broken it down for you because we really do care about your business and giving you the know-how to feel confident in building upon it. This is a general checklist that provides most of what you will need to get together before we can start to build your dream website.

If you require a Logo, Favicon or website copy please let us know so that can be included in your Scope of Work (SOW).

I hope that you find this list helpful, as you can see just by the length of the list there are a lot of factors many businesses don’t take into account when starting a website development project.

Creating the copy alone can be a hard undertaking. Between meetings, client work and your social calendar it can really be hard to find the spare moments to get the words together.
