Create a storyboard or diagram. Once you've conducted the initial interview, create a storyboard or diagram of the entire project.
Sample storyboard templates and navigation systems are included in the Proposal Kit Professional. Never begin the development of any project without a clear design and diagram of the entire site or project. Our templates and samples are designed to accommodate growth without requiring redesigns of the existing project.
The sample project diagrams included with the Proposal Kits are in HTML, Visio and ConceptDraw
formats. You will need a copy of one of those programs to manipulate the diagrams. If you do not have a diagramming tool, we also included HTML versions of the diagrams. There are many 3rd party diagramming tools in a wide range of prices available. You can also create diagrams using your graphics program.
Once you have created a storyboard diagram and you want to include it in a proposal (which is optional), use your diagramming tool to save the diagram as a graphic file which you can then import into the Proposal Pack "Storyboard" template document.
During this process, also fill out the Page Count Estimates document to generate an estimate of the number of pages and types of pages that will make up the project. This will help you plug in the numbers into the estimate spreadsheet.
When your storyboard diagram is complete, save it and copy it into the Proposal Pack Storyboard document.
The Proposal Kit Professional also includes the "Anatomy of a Performance Web Site" design notes and diagrams to help you learn to build web sites that perform and give you an edge over your competition.
The Proposal Kit Professional also includes storyboard diagrams of an entire affiliate and e-commerce system which also incorporates all of our standard performance marketing components.
