Documentation of the Project Requirements

Most WordPress Projects Fail

Unfortunately, most WordPress website development projects fail to achieve their intended business goals and objectives. The root this failure is not the marketing manager, project manager, agency, or freelancer involved in the website's design and development process.

The true underlying issue lies in the lack of a comprehensive and informed project requirements specification from the outset. It's like trying to build a house without a blueprint.

Get Consistent and Equitable Website Development Bids from Agencies and Freelancers

This Upwork job posting for an experienced WordPress Developer is incomplete, as it lacks essential details required for a thorough bid. Key information regarding the company, services provided, website goals, and other relevant specifics is absent.

Without clear goals and requirements, over 60 unrealistic and incomplete bids were submitted. Significant time and energy was wasted by contractors writing generic proposals and the client reviewing them.

At the end of the process, neither party accurately knew what what the client needed or what it would cost.

WEBSPEC website development project requirements specification

WEBSPEC involves a Google Meet or Zoom meeting with your company representative(s) leading the website development or redevelopment process. During this session, we will analyze your current website (if available), competitor websites, and any specific requirements you may have to identify your project needs and objectives. Over a 1-2 hour session, we will cover your company's mission, target audience, brand styles, website objectives, and key features.

After gathering insights from you, we will integrate them with our knowledge of effective website design and development. This will result in a detailed document outlining hosting needs, an initial sitemap, suggested theme and plugins, additional elements such as blogs and custom post types (like testimonials, team profiles, portfolios, etc.), forms, external system connections, and our proposed timelines and budget projections.

You will then use this specification in communicating your project requirements to your in-house development team, agency, freelancers or job posting boards including Upwork, Indeed, LinkedIn, etc.

By accurately communicating your project needs in your request you convey to all bidders what you really need for a successful website build tailored to your company. This results in more well-crafted proposals prevent ing misunderstandings, errors in website construction, unmet expectations, and costly revisions.
