What the Seller needs to start the work
I’ve had so many clients that “need” a website and have all the content and material prepared. Most of the time, all they really have is a piece of paper with the name of a few pages they want. If your website is only 5 pages and has nothing dynamic to it then that probably is a great list for the designer, but usually, that’s not it.
Build a sitemap: A site map is like a table of contents for your website, it’s quite simple to do and it definitely helps the designer (and you) understand the scope of the project.
Also, one of the most important aspects of a web project is understanding the functionality. You’ll need to make a list of the functions you want, i.e. shopping cart, blog, CMS, dynamic content, etc. If you don’t tell the designer until after the project has already begun then you will not only frustrate the designer but also incur some additional costs. Usually, it is cheaper and easier for everyone if the scope and functionality are defined in the beginning.
