rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Tammy Everts with a deep dive into the average page size, which seems to grow year in and year out.
It’s a little perplexing that the average page size trends up each year as performance has become a growing concern on the forefront of our minds, but Tammy has keen insights that are worth reading because she suggests that user experience isn’t always about page size and that bloat is far from the only metric we should be concerned.

Correlating page size with user experience is like presenting someone with an entire buffet dinner and assuming that it represents what they actually ate. To properly measure user experience, we need to focus on the content – such as the navbar or hero product image – that users actually want to consume. The best performance metric for measuring user experience is one that measures how long the user waits before seeing this critical content.
Spot on. There is such a thing as making intentional use of file size, depending on whether or goal is super fast load times or communicating an idea. Not that the two are mutually exclusive, but the trade-off can certainly exist.
