    Client Questionairre

    what would you add to an initial questionnaire for a client to determine the Purpose of the website, business requirements, technical requirements, intended users of website.. is this too shallow?


    What is your product?

    What do you want the purpose of your website to be?

    Do you have a preferred colour scheme or design?

    What are the minimum requirements in relation to:
    Resolution

    Browser

    Bandwidth

    Any other special needs?
    What age/sex is your main target audience?

    What age/sex is your secondary target audience?

    What image of your company do you want to present through your website?

    How many different sections do you require? i.e. Products, Services?

    Would you like a mailing list implemented to keep your customers updated?


    Would you like to have your content Dynamic or Static?

    What is your budget?

    i wouldnt suggest asking too many technical questions because in most cases they don't know what you're talking about (things like browser, resolution, dynamic or static...)

    take a look at the one macromedia has here:

    and here's some more interesting information from mm:

    i think if you ask these questions in a meeting you'll be in serious jeopardy of looking like you haven't done any preparation yourself.



    What is your product?

    If you didn't have a firm grasp on what the product is, then that's fine, but i think you're exposing yourself to risk with most of these questions...

    a lot of those questions answer themselves once you solidify the value proposition.

    this is a questionnaire that I will hand them, I know it's not very good, and I would never give it to a client, thats why I'm trying to refine it, instead of telling me it aint good, could you guys tell me what you would add/change/remove?

    thanks

    Ben,
    I don't usually offer to do this, but I am going to send you the "project profiler" that I have my clients fill out before I write their proposal. PM me with your email, and I'll email it to you.

    Hi Jay

    yep he has a good one.

    but you need to personalise it to meet you specific needs, as i am sure jay will tell you that.

    we have a killer question for potential clients:

    how will you measure the success or failure of this project?

    I would avoid color scheme type questions, thats your job as the designer.

    if you are going to meet with the client, forget about a 'survey' and employ some sort of process to get the answers for these questions. in his book, hillman curtis lays out a really good process. most of these techniques will deliver the answers to most of your questions. this way, you will look really smart (because you have this cool methodology), and you won't just be asking them for the info. after all, YOU are the designer - you need to tell them....

    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.
