What Content is needed?
Content evaluation and organization requires that the purpose of the website is clearly defined.
Collecting a list of the necessary content then organizing it according to the audience’s needs is a key step in website planning.
In the process of gathering the content being offered, any items that do not support the defined purpose or accomplish target audience objectives should be removed.
It is a good idea to test the content and purpose on a focus group and compare the offerings to the audience needs.
The next step is to organize the basic information structure by categorizing the content and organizing it according to user needs. Each category should be named with a concise and descriptive title that will become a link on the website.
Planning for the site’s content ensures that the wants or needs of the target audience and the purpose of the site will be fulfilled.
