Map out all your pages first
TRUST ME! Being a web developer since the mid 90's with over 20+ years experience. I have started coding websites too fast and wasted a lot of time because I did not have a plan of action.
DO NOT CODE ANYTHING UNLESS ALL YOUR WEB PAGES ARE SETUP
When you use this template, I have added a lot of pages that you may not need i.e. DMCA Policy for instance so if you do not need this page then DELETE IT. Do not have any more pages than you need because it is extra work to maintain them.
Use this template to build out your pages, mock them all up and be able to click to each page so you can click like your users. Spend the time to make sure your SEO is using the words you want for each page and make sure each page makes sense as a user.
Once you have all your pages mocked up and ready to go, you can hand this site over to your DESIGNER & DEVELOPER and TRUST ME AGAIN ... if you have something like this ready to go, both your DESIGNER & DEVELOPER can get stated working right away.
