    PLANNING

    Sample Goals – who would have these?


    Planning

    PLANNING

    The Vermont Candle Company makes and sell candles and candle making supplies. Every Saturday in their store they have demo’s and workshops. Their main competitor is Yankee Candle. People like candles and they like to make their own candles.

    They also purchase mailing lists, print and mail out a catalog, this is a costly effort. They would like all of their products displayed for sale on the website, and they would like to update the product information themselves without having to hire someone to do it.


    Planning

    PLANNING

    • The Statement of Purpose is a written statement that clearly describes:

      • The users reasons for visiting the site (interests)

      • The clients reasons for having the site (needs)

    • The Statement of Purpose is a few paragraphs. The key to its definition lies in the verbs that describe the website functions:

      • Increase sales

      • Find Recipes

      • Provide educational classes

  • Once you identify the verbs that describe the functions, it is easy to turn those into a well written paragraph, and also start getting ideas for its navigation.


  • How is the statement of purpose used

    PLANNING

    How is the Statement of Purpose Used?

    • The Statement of Purpose is crucial in understanding what the website will be about.

    • If a website has no purpose, why have it?

    • By conducting interviews and branding (determining the audience and website purpose), the vision of the website should be clear.

    • Consolidate interview notes and ideas

    • Defining the purpose of the website is the starting point for the next step in planning: determining the audience of the website
