When you look into getting a new website design, there is the excitement that you can have quite literally anything you want on your site! Business websites are really important, as they are often the first place our clients and customers go to when looking for our products and services. This is why you need to make sure your site has all the features, functionality and style to ensure your customers not only find what they are searching for, but return again in future.
The first thing to do when planning a new website is create a list of dos and don’ts. This is essentially a list of things you DO want on your site, and a list of things you DON’T want! The best place to start here is looking at your competitor’s websites. You can gather a surprising about of ideas from looking at other people’s sites. You will soon learn the things you like and the things you don’t. Looking from a customer perspective, you should think about what works well and what makes the website overly complicated.
Once you have your initial ideas you can take them onwards to a web designer, who can help you transform your ideas into a more realistic design. Web designers can help you to tweak your ideas and make them really work, perfect for the audience you have in mind.
