10 Things to know before designing a website.

If you plan to design a website for your business, these are the top 10 things you must consider first. Designing a website is a long-term investment, so choose good technology and, most importantly, a reliable designer who will support you throughout your business journey.  Our 10 tips will help you understand your audience and purpose, setting you up for success.

okay here is the top 10 things 

1.   Choosing a Great Domain Name: Ensure your domain name matches your company brand, is easy to say, and easy to remember. Check its availability before starting your website. If it's free, grab it; if not, brainstorm a perfect match for your company. Remember, your domain name affects your Google ranking and SEO

2.      Website Loading Time: The first thing customers notice about your website is its loading time. If it takes too long or content and images are slow to display, it can frustrate visitors, even if they were initially interested. With many options available, customers might switch to another site. Don't let them leave before exploring your work. Fast loading times are crucial to keeping visitors engaged.

3.      Choice of Color Scheme: After your website loads, the color scheme is the first thing customers notice. Colors express emotions and set the tone, influencing how customers feel and how your brand stands out. When choosing colors, think about your company's niche and branding

4.      Website Menu Structure: A website needs easy navigation for visitors to find what they're looking for. If it's confusing, they'll leave. Depending on your website's complexity, you might need 2 or 3 layers in your navigation bar. And if you have lots of pages, make sure they're easy to find under the main navigation items

5.     Website Design: Make sure your website design is attractive and clean. Your graphic design, image selection and quality, font choice, font alignment, text formatting, content presentation, web kit animation, and everything else need to be carefully managed by the designer to create a good website that effectively represents your company brand.

6.      Website security: If you look at your website and don’t see a green lock in the top-left corner, then the website is not secure for sharing private information. If you don't want your website to be hacked or lose customer data, securing your website is the top priority. An SSL certificate can be very helpful for keeping your website secure.

7.      Update your website: In the past, websites were often left untouched after creation. But now, regular updates are crucial for a healthy, search-engine-friendly site! Decide how often to update—whether it's 2-3 times a week or daily. For frequent updates, a dynamic website with a Content Management System (CMS) is recommended, giving you control over content changes.

8.    Who develops your website: When it comes to building a website, you have two choices: do it yourself or partner with an expert. Doing it yourself may seem cost-effective, but unless you're an expert, your website may end up looking incomplete. If you're aiming to make money with your business, DIY isn't the best idea. Instead, focus on what you do best and find a partner or agency to bring your ideas to life

9.      Good call to action: After deciding your website's purpose, prioritize your call to action (CTA). CTAs prompt visitors to interact with your site—whether it's contacting you, signing up, or downloading. Also, focus on compelling content about your products/services, encouraging visitors to take action. Investing in your content is key to success.

10.   Market your website (Create a Blog page): Simply building a website and waiting for visitors isn't effective. With heavy online competition, relying on organic discovery is unlikely. Before designing your site, develop a strong marketing plan. Starting a blog is a great step. Offer solutions to customer problems and guide them through the market. This attracts visitors and boosts your chances of converting them into customers.
