Your website is one of the first things that a potential customer sees when they’re looking for a business like yours.
It’s imperative that you make a good first impression, as you don’t often get second chances.
Businesses that jump into their new website project without thinking of the most important questions are typically those who end up with websites that perform poorly or fail to achieve goals.
You have a story and a great message, and it is vital to share it with your audience.
Better planning leads to better results – which ultimately means that you’ll be able to convert more of your visitors into repeat customers.
The design process is very much a collaboration between the design agency and the client.
For you as the client, it’s vital that you can share your ideas and effectively articulate what you’d like.
For the agency, it’s important that they are able to listen and make suggestions that will benefit your business.
Together, this partnership can deliver fantastic results, but it requires a clear plan and a good understanding.
Taking the time to have a plan in place with an easy to understand project brief, helps everyone involved on the project to move together in the same direction.
The best website projects work as a collaboration between you, the business owner, and your chosen design partner. The first step here is a clear and concise project brief.
The project brief is a plan that can be put into action by your chosen design partner. Not only does it map out the work that needs to be completed, but it allows for a list of deliverables to be created that will meet your requirements and needs.
In our experience this is a common struggle for many organizations. Website development projects take off without a project brief to a level that creates a shared understanding for all involved.
A web collaboration with ClickRevolution starts with a Website Discovery Workshop. This is a meeting between you and our team. The Discovery Workshop is designed to let us understand your business’s needs, goals, and plans, and to unpack your website requirements. We ask a lot of questions! That helps us to understand you clearly and lets us both think about your target audience in more detail.
The most important question that you can ever ask yourself is WHY. It doesn’t sound like it right now, but in our Discovery Workshop you’ll hear it a lot, because it helps you to think deeply about your requirements and how they work for your target audience.
It’s good to remember that while a website is created for your business, it’s actually more for your customers. If your customers don’t resonate with the website and your message, then your site won’t generate sales.
At the end of our meeting, we’ll take all of the notes we’ve made on the call with you and turn this into a complete Project Brief document, ready for you to hand over to your chosen design partner and get your project moving.
With a clear and concise brief, your chosen design partner will be able to easily prepare a proposal for you that takes into account all of your requirements and the goals of your project.
In fact, we actually discount the Website Discovery Workshop fee from our proposal when you choose to continue working with us on your website.
A good project brief will begin bringing the vision for your new website to life. It will also hold your design partners accountable to elements that have been agreed in the proposal.
Our Discovery Workshop is priced at $299. As mentioned above, this fee is deducted from the proposal that we will create for you when you choose to move forward working with us on your website project.

After you’ve made your payment, you’ll receive an email that will provide all the instructions you need to schedule your Website Discovery Workshop with us and we can get started.
Our Website Discovery Workshop is a meeting where we will discuss your plans for your new website and dig deeper into your requirements. We’ll work with you to fully understand everything that you need and analyze how this can come together from a technical perspective. After the meeting, we’ll provide you with a Project Brief that you can use when you move forward with us or any other agency.
We will have an online meeting with you to discuss your new website project. We’ll listen to your requirements and we’ll ask you questions to drill down into the specifics. This process helps all parties involved to gain full clarity in the scope of work required and it also gets you thinking in detail about your target audience and their needs.
After the Discovery meeting, we’ll use the notes that we’ve created to put together a complete Project Brief for your website project. This is a document that will detail your requirements, goals and all accompanying data. You can use this brief to move forwards with the project with any design partner you choose.
When you choose us to be your design partner, we will deduct the cost of our Discovery Workshop from our proposal to you. We do this because the Discovery Workshop is an important part of the project, and it’s the first step towards having a great new website for your business.
It’s easy to start a website project with a design partner but it’s not always easy for you, as the business owner, to clearly express your requirements. A Discovery Workshop is a conversation between you and our experienced team members, asking you questions and digging deeper into your “why”.
No, you have no obligation to work with us on the actual web design project, after the Discovery Workshop. If you decide after using our Discovery Workshop that you would like to work with another design partner, then you’re more than welcome to do this. You can take the Project Brief that we create for you, and present this to any design agency.
A Project Brief is a document that clearly and concisely describes the project. It’s a detailed document that will run through the purpose of your website, your requirements, any particular technical needs and most importantly, your goals.
