- No Comments
How thoroughly should I think and do I really need to consider on certain things before I go for my first Website?
Is it really that important?
If I have a quality product and business, people will visit my site no matter how the website is, right?
As we move deeper and deeper into an era of digital connection even the smallest business can have a truly global presence, but at what cost?
I could search one of the many freelancing websites and spend countless hours searching through the endless talent, but how would I really know I could trust them, or that they have the experience they quote to be able to deal with the things I need within my given budget.
So, Why, How and Where these are the three effective interrogative word will give all the answers of your queries.
Why: Why do I need my website? This would be your first obvious questions come to you before anyone asks. If you are very much clear with your purpose and know the answer of WHY very well then you should go for your WEBSITE.
How: Now you being convinced why you need your first website with the powerful effect of your own “why”, now certainly the second obvious question will appear in your mind “HOW” it would be done and this will take you to the edge of doubt but you will still keep yourself calm and composed to find out the solutions.
Where: Before you find out your “HOW”, it will drag you to the surface of “WHERE” to be done my first website with your high expectation in limited budget.
Should I approach my cousin who just completed her graduation but no real experience, if she can’t make as per my expectation how do I deal with the situation or should I hire an agency or developer to do my first website as per my requirements.
Do they give their much involvement on my website?
Do I really think on certain points that to be considered before approaching the agency or developer?
Yes, you really need to consider on 5 most essential points.
A large problem that people face is that they don’t really know what they want and when starting out.
They know that they need a website, and have a vague idea of what purpose that website should serve, however they haven’t taken the time to map out what they want to display to the world, about themselves and about their business.
Is it to sell your products online? Or how about to showcase your creative work? Having a clear focus will help you as well as your visitors.
2) Domain & hosting (.IO)
Pick something that’s short, easy to remember, and reflects the nature of your site. It’s not easy to change it at a later date, so now’s the time to get it right.
Of course, if your site is for your business, then it kind of make sense for your domain name to incorporate it.
Using an .IO domain can be a good way to identify yourself or your business as part of the tech scene.
Web hosting and domain hosting, though closely related, are two different services. Web hosts allow users to create and store content, like a website, on Internet servers. Domain hosts provide domain names, which help visitors access your web content.
3) Content & Design
What’s going to get them excited about your work and keep them on your site? How many pages do you need to create to do this effectively?
The content that you provide as you build your website is not only going to bring more people to your site, but it is going to cause them to stay longer and interact with your brand more.
This is extremely important when it comes to getting people to purchase more as well as being able to better rank your site on search engines like Google.
Often, people let their website design become something that holds them back. People are instinctively drawn to things that are visually appealing.
Ideally you should create a brand which consists of a logo, colour pallet, typography and basic visual concepts which people will then learn to identify with you.
4) The Customer and their Journey
First you will want to consider what the visitor’s initial impression will be when they arrive on your homepage or landing page. Because first impression is the last impression, isn’t it so?
Another important aspect of all of this is having a clear view of who the optimal visitor to your website is. Whom are you targeting, and who is it that will likely take advantage of your product or service?
For example, recent past stats shows that young men and women spend their most of the time spending on YouTube videos.
If your targeting customer is primarily consist with 18-30 year, to encourage them to interact with your site better if you include more videos than written content. This will not only encourage your targeting customer to stay longer than usual in your site but let them feel that they have own it.
Search Engine Optimization will play the main role in terms Google ranking to keep your website stand out in a crowd; the keyword or search term which will be typing on googol search by your target customer need to be succinct explanations in search engine. This how your website will rank at the top in Google search.
