An easy way to propose a site map
We frequently talk to people who are planning new websites or are planning to rebuild an existing site. One of the key pieces of information we need is the expected page structure.
If you want to communicate a page structure to us or another agency, why not use the simplest method - nested bullet points. For example:
A simple nested list site map
- Our team
- Our philosophy
- Flux capacitors
- Hover boards
- Hair products
- Contact us
A more detailed site map
If you want to share your thoughts in a bit more detail, just add a few comments to each item.
- Home (short text intro, large-format photography, latest news article, latest tweets, industry association creds)
- About (longer introduction to company c. 250 words, links to team and philosophy pages)
- Our team (for each team member - photo, name, job title, short bio, social medial account links)
- Our philosophy (text to describe our working philosophy, images throughout, c. 400 words)
- Products (short intro to products c. 40-50 words, links to product categories)
- Flux capacitors (list of products each with a link to the product page)
- Hover boards (list of products each with a link to the product page)
- Hair products (list of products each with a link to the product page)
- Contact us (contact details, map and contact form)
Now this is not rocket science and you might not have needed our help here. We have mentioned this to so many people though, that we thought it deserved a blog post.
Bear in ming that this is just a starting point. Once we know your expectations, we will work with you to suggest the navigational structure which is best suited for your particular website.
