Website Intake Questionnaire

Your Website Awaits

Our priority is to create a website that achieves your strategic goals, while at the same time beautifully communicating what makes you and your brand unique. Your answers to the following questions will help us estimate the size, scope, and nature of your website, as well as help you think through what it is exactly you would like to create. 

For the purposes of this questionnaire, assume that we are not familiar with any of your industry terminology and/or processes. Please think through these questions carefully and elaborate where necessary to help us better understand not only your perspective on your business, but to put ourselves in the place of your prospective audience and customers.

Please ensure that you answer each question fully and to the best of your ability, as this will cut down further surveying. We still may need to ask clarifying questions, and will follow up with you once we receive and process the information provided.
