10 questions you should expect your web developer to ask you http://www.vandergriend.com/blog/entry/10-questions-you-should-expect-your-web-developer-to-ask-you http://www.vandergriend.com/blog/entry/10-questions-you-should-expect-your-web-developer-to-ask-you Sadly, I see a lot of businesses start a website project on impulse.  They chase the lowest cost provider and push for it to be done in the quickest possible time. All in all, there's little thought or consideration for what a website actually means for their business. This approach is short sighted, and generally ends up with mediocre results at best (on many levels).

Think Big http://www.vandergriend.com/blog/entry/think-big http://www.vandergriend.com/blog/entry/think-big I occasionally meet resistance with business owners when I challenge them where they want to take their business in 5 to 10 years time.
