 I will have professionally prepared text ready for use.

 I will have all the text ready in a word document format for each page in the site.

 I will supply the text in a word document format but I would like ‘Business Websites Direct’ to organise it, edit and optimize it for the web.


Note: We have computer software which can quickly extract word text from scanned or hard copy documents for cut and paste to Web Sites. This method is not suitable if the text overlays complex graphics.


Who will provide the images for your site?

 I have all the images ready as a jpg format or other format compatible with Photoshop.

 I want you to select and use images from digital photos that I provide.

 I would like Business Websites Direct to provide stock photos and use some photos that I provide.

I would like Business Websites Direct to discuss the option of supplying photographs.



Note: there will be an additional cost for the supply of stock photographs in some cases. We can take professional photographs and video if required. The cost of this service will vary depending upon complexity. We use the latest Nikon Digital SLR cameras with HD video facilities and use Photoshop software and graphic design packages for image manipulation.

Site Structure (Navigation)


We usually design the navigation scheme in collaboration with our clients by gathering all the content together and discussing how best to group the information to allow easy user navigation and achieve the primary objectives of the site. However you might not have all your content together at this stage, so to allow us to work out the scale of the project it will help us if you can name the major areas of your proposed site.


Are there any ideas on the proposed navigation scheme?

 We have already created a navigation scheme in-house (if so please return to us with this document).

We have a rough idea of how we would like to arrange the navigation scheme but would like advice.
