Web Design Antrim: The Pre-Briefing Stage

Deciding to build a website from scratch or to redesign an existing website is an important business decision. In the past, the ‘IT team’ would just gather up and list some pages required for the website and someone would write a brief introduction on the company and that would be it.

It is way more complicated than that now. A web design project nowadays is a project that requires the alignment of many stakeholders: tech, marketing, business strategy and management, HR, customer service, and sales. A website is more than a brochure about your business. It’s an integration of the internal business process, a marketing channel, a customer service portal, a sales channel, an HR portal, and many other things.

Internal Team’s Alignment

Before approaching a web design agency, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of your own requirements and expectations. Asking the right questions within your internal team will help ensure that you’re well-prepared to communicate your needs to the web design agency. Here are key questions to consider:

  1. Purpose and Goals:
    • What is the primary purpose of the new website (e.g., to increase sales, improve branding, provide information)?
    • What specific goals do we want to achieve with this website (e.g., more leads, higher traffic, better customer engagement)?
  2. Target Audience:
    • Who is our target audience, and what are their needs and preferences?
    • How do we want the audience to perceive our brand through the website?
  3. Content and Structure:
    • What type of content will we need (text, images, videos, blogs)?
    • How do we envision the structure and navigation of the website?
  4. Design and Branding:
    • Do we have existing branding guidelines (colors, fonts, logo) to be incorporated?
    • Are there any specific design elements or styles we prefer?
  5. Functionality and Features:
    • What specific features and functionalities do we need (e.g., e-commerce, forms, chatbots)?
    • Do we require any special integrations (e.g., CRM, social media, email marketing)?
  6. Budget and Resources:
    • What is our budget for the web design project?
    • Do we have the resources to manage the website internally once it’s live?
  7. Timeline and Deadlines:
    • What is our desired timeline for completing the website?
    • Are there any critical deadlines that the project must meet?
  8. Maintenance and Support:
    • Do we plan to maintain the website in-house or outsource it?
    • What kind of ongoing support will we need from the web design agency?
  9. Competitor Analysis:
    • What do we like or dislike about our competitors’ websites?
    • What can we do differently or better on our website?
  10. Legal and Compliance:
    • Are there any legal or compliance requirements to consider (e.g., GDPR, ADA compliance)?
  11. Measuring Success:
    • How will we measure the success of the new website?
    • What key performance indicators (KPIs) should we track?

Discussing these questions internally will help create a comprehensive brief for the web design agency, ensuring that the final product aligns with your business objectives and expectations.

Types of Websites

It’s important to understand that not all websites are built equal. The needs of every website determine what its requirements, features, user experience, site map, and even the tone of voice of its content will look like. Moreover, the bigger picture of what the visitors will expect out of your website needs to be considered during the design and development phase. Below are some examples of different types of websites we can create.

Event Website

An event website allows for streamlined event management, from invites to marketing, buying tickets, and even through follow-up email marketing. Your site is your event’s central command station, acting as the anchor of your event marketing efforts. If you’re looking to reach a wide audience, you can even use your site as your virtual event location — which may not be a bad idea, as 80% of event organisers claim virtual events reach wider audiences.

Building a Website for Engagement

An event website needs to be engaging, because if you don’t spark the interest of your visitors that your event is the most enjoyable, useful, or creative. Additionally, you need to build authority and create a hype for your line up of speakers, bands, companies, etc. So, not only are you building your own brand, but also co-branding or partnering with other relevant people so you can both build an equity for the event altogether.


The must have pages on an events website are usually ‘About’ and ‘What’s On’. The About page includes information about you as an event organiser. Who you are and why you organise this event and what it represents to its attendees. A little bit of the event’s history is always appreciated, too. In other words, you’re giving the visitors a reason to care while sharing your vision with them. The About page should be entirely about you, your team, your loyal fans, etc. This is where you build equity for your own brand.

What’s On

On the What’s On page, that’s where you create a hype for the speakers or your line up of guests and the programme of the day(s). This is the hero page of your website, in addition to the homepage. The UI/UX of this page must capture the soul of your event and be supported with video content, great aesthetics, and imagery of those who will make your event.


Most event websites require a booking system. A booking system gives you control over the process. From the moment a potential attendee visits your website to the moment they make their payment and receive their ticket. Having this process done through a third-party vendor blocks you from having insights about who your audience is. You wouldn’t be able to target them through email marketing, ads, or get in touch with them for any other reason.

The one thing you need to be careful about is that integrating a booking system requires a highly secure and stable website build. A stable website build won’t crash when it’s two days before the big event and many visitors are buying tickets – last minute. A secure website is also super important to accept your clients’ payments.

Additional Ideas

Many event websites love to add a blog or under another word call it ‘Experience’. This is a place where you can share engaging guides to about your events, programme, destination and its culture, or any valuable information related to the topic of the event. There are two advantages to establishing a blog or ‘Experience’ page on an event website. First, you can use it as a search engine optimisation tool to attract traffic to your event. Additionally, this is a place to truly engage and build a community from your attendees where they can get to know each other and share their experiences – or even better encourage them to share user-generate content.

Membership Website

A membership website ensures exclusivity by requiring visitors to sign up or pay a fee to receive full access to its services, tools, or resources. A membership website is suitable for online magazine or publications that require membership to read. Alternatively, you may have a business or non-profit site that you want to add a members-only page to access additional content. Doing so can increase revenue streams, builds trust and loyalty between your members, and increases website traffic. So, in other words, it could be a way to monetise your website.

Membership websites are also suitable if you want to have a customer service portal integrated into your website. Many B2B businesses wish to digitise their sales process. It empowers your clients and differentiates you among competitors. Your client would be able to login, access your service, get a quote, and approve or purchase it, then track their order and have exclusive resources or documents related to their order or the services they could be interested in.

Core Pages and Functionalities

Pages and functionalities for membership websites vary a lot according to the nature of the business. However, what they have in common is usually the personal aspect of the user experience. They login to your website, so in other words, it’s their profile. They expect that what they see on the homepage is personalised and tailored according to what they’re interested in. It’s also a good idea to give your users the opportunity to save things and get back to them later. Whether it’s content, services, or any other aspect, try to give your audience as much control as possible over what they see on their profile.

Non-Profit Website

With a non-profit website, you can create a website that informs visitors of your organisation’s mission, goals, and core values. Whether a school website, church website or animal rescue site, be sure to include information about past events, your mission statement, and a donations page.

Core Pages

The About Page is really your selling point on a non-profit website, since you don’t have ‘products’, you’re selling your own credibility and purpose. Give your audience as much information about your organisation as possible because transparency is a top priority for anyone donating money. The second page which is also central to a non-profit website is ‘Testimonials’ or the stories that give your visitors proof of your real-life impact. They want to know that the entity they’re donating to is changing lives. They want to see the team behind your organisation or become part of the volunteers participating.

To encourage them to do, of course, you need the right calls to action and a clear customer journey. However, this cannot be achieved if your events or on-ground activities are not well-documented, displayed, and explained through engaging content and web design. The ‘Donation’ page is a must have on a non-profit website. It’s the transactional page where visitors can give out their payment information. Security is, of course, one of the top priorities for any organisation accepting donations. 

Finally, non-profit websites usually have a ‘What’s On’ page. This is particularly useful if you continuously have events or programmes and need volunteers or attendees to take part in your events and raise money through selling tickets. In such case, a booking system is required to showcase upcoming events, the schedule, and have people buy tickets through your website.

Local Agency with World Class Results

We’re finding more and more customers telling us they’ve never looked back from a decision to work with a local website agency. Why? The simple value of a local solution to local business challenges! We’re a County Antrim-based company in the same business market as our local clients, and they’ve all been telling us one thing: the difference between working with a Northern Irish agency as opposed to using international ‘off the peg’ solutions has made a big difference to their business.

Web Design Antrim: The ProfileTree Methodology

Design That Performs

A generic web design solution won’t feature a focus on results built around your business, a specialist site can. Need more leads? Need better sales support materials online? Ability to make changes quickly? eCommerce? A site custom-made to be a living, breathing – and performing – part of your company can truly deliver on your business objectives. Ever-changing SEO requirements also mean that a technical knowledge is needed to keep your site visible for those searching for your business.  Meanwhile, a ‘one size fits all’ approach could see you drop from view compared to competitors.

Local Customer Service

When you have a question about your site, when an urgent issue needs to be addressed or when you need a change without delay, dealing with call-centres and ‘support tickets’ can be infuriating for a local business. We’re a small team, based close to you and with a belief that your time is valuable. We won’t waste it as we know it is better spent on the bigger challenges of running a company.

Development That Grows With Your Business

We’re seeing our local area change around us. And fast too! What your business needs today may not be the same as what you’ll need tomorrow. A lasting relationship based on responding to change, keeping your business ahead of the digital curve, can’t be matched by a general web solution.

Local Customers

We know your customers because we are your customers! Members of our team live in and around Antrim and County Antrim. Just like our clients, we’re invested in the local area and local business markets. We’re based in Belfast, County Antrim, with team members from across NI. That’s why we want businesses like ours to thrive together and grow together!

Local Knowledge

Our County Antrim-based team know the challenges faced by your business because we’re a County Antrim-based business too. We’ll meet with you to find out how we can help grow together. Just ask! Every area in NI has its own unique challenges and customers. To bring potential buyers into your brand, working with a local agency who’ll understand those groups can be the start of a winning partnership.

Local Support

We aren’t a call-centre and we don’t hide behind a receptionist, meaning we’re quick and responsive to your enquiries. We’re an NI company like you, meaning we know the value of great local customer service. Your own customers expect better than recorded messages, slow replies, or generic responses. Why work with a company unless they can match your business ethos and approach to customer service?

Local Changes

We know Antrim is a changing town, just like Belfast it is a changing city. Working with a local company on local solutions can mean a better understanding of your business not just today but looking to the future too. Often, we find that our customers come to for help with the same changes we find we need to manage our business around too! In fact, the right web design and digital approach can even leverage change for the better.
