Effective websites

Building and maintaining an effective website requires a significant investment of time and resources. Websites that are built without planning or evaluation of user needs can become confusing, cluttered and outdated – a source of frustration for both website owners and visitors.

Initial steps

Before you begin building your website, take a step back to answer some fundamental questions, and develop a strategy to guide the process.

  • What are the main goals for the website?
  • Who are the primary audiences, and why are they visiting the site?
  • Who is responsible for site’s strategic direction, producing content, and updating it after launch?

To help you answer these questions and develop a strategic approach, we encourage you to use this project checklist.

The checklist includes a series of prompts to help you think through the issues listed above, as well as others central to the website planning process. Completing the checklist will result in a strategic framework you can use as a guide while working on your organization’s website.
