Website mockups are completed and client-approved. Now you have to take control of website from your developer. Following things must be done in order to get things done in a proper way.

Basic guide

Having a clearly defined brand guide that lists out the various typefaces, font sizes, font weights, colors, and so on, along with notes on when and where to use them is extremely useful for the owner when setting up a new website’s stylesheet.

Ask for sitemap

A sitemap is a simple visual diagram that lists all of the pages within the website and how each are connected.

Know wireframes

It’s unlikely that every single page in your new web project will have its own mockup, but you’ll still need your developer to illustrate how certain non-designed pages should be built.

Get to know designs

Some of the more important or highly customized pages, such as the homepage, will usually be fully designed. Make sure you get the access to these mockups so you know exactly how these pages should be built.

Know animations

How should links or buttons change when hovered over? Are there any subtle (or not-so-subtle) animations that should happen on the webpage?

Final copy

If the final copy is written and ready to go, ask your developer to incorporate it into the build instead of using placeholder text.

Check CTA's

Calls to action and other links can be added to your website’s copydeck or mockup. Just note that a CTA needs to be included, along with where it should link to.


You must ask your developer to provide you basic manual to navigate through the dashboard and basic features.

Final checks

Check that all the operations working fine and you have all the basic information. After that you're good to go.
