Making specifications for website development

As professional web developers often joke, “No specifications, no results.” There is a grain of joke here, while the rest is real. The website will be quality and effective only if you create it as per specifications. The DMark team works as follows — specifications, then everything else. Our prices for specifications to create a website are completely transparent and reasonable.

Why are specifications good for the customer and the contractor?

Drawing up technical specifications for website development

Services to develop specifications are necessary for both counterparties. Quality specifications ensure that:

  • There will be complete mutual understanding from the first day of cooperation;
  • A professional and the future website owner will have a clear vision of the project’s implementation process;
  • All development stages are completed within the agreed time and without any inconsistencies;
  • You can make a budget and a financial plan.

Another advantage of a comprehensive action plan is the correct prioritization — from the website architecture to the development procedure.

The main stages of creating specifications by the DMark team

  • Meeting with the client or conducting an online consultation to collect initial information and discuss the project goals and objectives.
  • Analyzing the target audience (TA), the company’s business processes, and the structure of the services and products provided.
  • Creating the website map and page structure; developing the basic and additional functionality and design.
  • Clarifying details, making the complete project description, and identifying potential challenges.
  • Adjusting the document (if necessary), estimating the accurate specifications development time, and providing a detailed price list.

IMPORTANT! You don’t have a clear vision for your company’s development on the Internet? Request a marketing strategy to create a website and develop specifications.
