What kind of website do you need?
In case of your company provides professional services, your website should express your company's reputation, knowledge, experience. Most importantly, the website's content and features must help you convert visitors into customers.

To start the website development project, let’s take time to define who is your target audience. What will your visitors do on your website? These questions are not hard to answer so try to prepare them before.
When you have the basic requirements about your website, your next step is creating a sitemap, wireframe, and essential features. If better, you can prepare the content of each page on the website.
The sitemap is a file in which you provide information about the pages, videos, images, and other files on your website and their relationships between them. Sitemap helps your development team have a complete view of your website.
A wireframe is a layout of a web page that demonstrates what interface elements will exist on key pages. You do not need to wait for a design to know how your website looks.
