What is a wireframe?

A wireframe is a drawing of how you want, in this case, your business website to look and how users are supposed to click through it. You use a wireframe for yourself to get clear about where you want text, images, navigation etc. to be positioned on your page. You also use it to get clear about the user flow of your website. How are your customers supposed to navigate through your website? This means that you will gain an overview of all the pages that will make up your finished website.

 

Why should I  bother to create a wireframe drawing?

Creating a wireframe, like we do in this tutorial, allows you to get very specific about how you want the design of your business webpage. This forces you to think about the user experience early in the process. But why not just go to a designer or programmer to begin with and let them figure it out, you may think? Well Whether you contact a designer or programmer physically or online, they will need some sort of specification from you. They will need to know what you want. And if you are too abstract and do not know exactly yourself what it is that you want, the process is going to be a lot more expensive, than if you had a finished wireframe that you could just hand over. In the later case, this would make it possible for a designer and programmer to give you a price up front and you would be able to choose the best offer presented. With this method you will avoid surprises both in terms of the finished product and the price. Changing a website that is already coded is a lot more time consuming hence expensive, than changing a wireframe drawing. Should the designer or programmer have any comments on your wireframe, you can easily edit it together. Trough NinjaMock you can invite them to edit your website project. This means that you can discuss and agree on what is going to be created, before starting. Getting the functionality and the user flow of your business website right the first time, will make the process pleasant for all parties involved. It will save you time and money and you make sure that you get the business website that you want. So let’s get started and show you how to create a website for you business in no time!

Share Button

Avoid headache using a simple wireframe tool to make your coding more effective. Get feedback from clients and users, before starting to code, as it is much faster and easier to iterate a wireframe, than having to re-write your entire code.

Some say that the lazy programmer is the best programmer, why spend unnecessary time on coding, if you could be more effective? Whether you are collaborating with a team or it is just you and the client, using a simple wireframe tool is the key to using your time most effectively and getting satisfied clients.

NinjaMock makes you easily create, collaborate with colleagues in real time, share with clients and run user tests, before coding. Don’t worry, you’ll have full control over your project, assigning different roles to your team, such as “admin”, “designer” and “reviewer”.

Having a wireframe that has been user tested and approved by the client works as a blueprint for your code. It gives you an idea about where divs, headers, navs, images etc. are going to be. Follow this and you will be much more effective with your time, avoiding the headache of rewriting code, due to dissatisfied clients. To sum up, we have listed 6 reasons why wireframing is a must.
