As a web designer and developer who cares a lot about my clients, I thought it might be useful to show you how to write a website brief. You might be wanting a new website or you might be thinking about re-designing your existing website.
It’s important to consider planning your new website before you start build it, this is where writing a website brief comes in handy.
Think about what you want your website to do? think about the functionalities of what you need your website to perform
What do you want it to say? The content and copywriting goes here for each of your pages.
Finally how do you want your website to look like? fonts, logos and colours etc The whole esthetics of it.
I have a free workbook to help you with this process that you can download here or by clicking on the Free workbook banner below.
PS: DO NOT PRINT THIS WORKBOOK, save the workbook on your desktop and give yourself a week to spend time planning for your new website. Type straight into it and remember to SAVE it!
PPS: leave a comment below and let me know how you’re getting on with the workbook will you? x
You’re in absolute overwhelm, you are working so hard with too much to do and I feel you, I really do. This is something I used to struggle with on a chronic level and I have since found a way to manage my feelings of overwhelm whenever they decide to strike.
First of all,take some time to slow down your breathing, slow everything down for the next few minutes. I know you probably have feelings of wanting to run around like a headless chicken but trust me on this for the next few minutes. It will really help you to take some time for meditation and get yourself grounded first. You’re not going to be able to tackle anything in a state of panic.
Once you’re done with your meditation get a post it note,index card or piece of paper and draw the lines/quadrants that I have explained to you in the video. This method is called the Eisenhower box method. I also explain how to clearly define what is urgent, what is important etc. How to put all your one million and one things to do in each quadrant and what goes where. This will help you with finding balance in your business and your family life.
So tell me, What are you going to stop doing today? What can you let go of? sometimes we are trying so hard to be super human, you know what? There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re perfect the way you are, you don’t have to get EVERYTHING done today, give yourself room and space to breathe and to grow, before you know it one task after the other will have been crossed out. If you’re still not sure on what to go into what box, please leave a comment in the box below, i’d love to help you with your priority list.
Is there such a thing as the best planner?
If you’re anything like me you’re probably wondering how to find the best planner for you. With so many amazing choices out there it’s hard to decide and choose the best planner out of the ridiculous amount of options. So in this video i’m going to share with you some of my planners, journals and diaries that I have used so far from 2013-2016. I talk about:
- The Erin Condren planner
- ibloom life and business planner
- my vision board and winning a scholarship to Marie Forleo’s bschool
- Leonie Dawson daily planner
- Daily Greatness Journal and Daily Greatness Business Journal
You are going to get a sneak peak into all of them here and hopefully it can help you decide on choosing one you might want to try out for yourself!
