Planning and preparation for what you want

Before you dive head first into the world of web site design and what you are wanting from your website. You’re going to want to plan. The best way to do this is draw out your website on paper, here you can get a rough look at how you want your website to look with all of its addons, pages and content.

Having a rough plan is always good as you will go over it again and again and decide to change something or remove something. You will possibly go through quite a bit of paper like this as well and you are more than likely to roughly plan out three or more different plans altogether. That is why it is wise to plan and plan thoroughly with most things that you do. Not just web site design.

You will also have to decide what you want to add on each page. Therefore, it is paramount if you make a plan of each and every page. Deciding what colour, you primarily want your website to be is important as it must contrast with your company image. Although each page doesn’t have to be the same colour it would make sense, as you don’t want a ridiculous number of different colours all over the place.

Have a great company logo which is designed how you want it!

A great start is to think about getting a company logo designed by a professional. The Web Designer Group can do this for you. As you will want a brand which is memorable therefore you will want a logo which catches the eye.

No matter what the kind of colour and what you want placed within it. You’re going to want to make it sleek, efficient and make sure it attracts. Memorable logos are one of the many ways a lot of customers come back and potential customers remember you. Take the McDonalds logo for example, it’s a big M which obviously stands for McDonalds. This is quite easy to remember and even if you are like me and you don’t like their food you will always remember the yellow M and red background. It’s straight forward, to the point and is extremely memorable.

Know what you want from your web site design

It is incredibly important to understand what you want from your web site design. Whether you are an e-commerce web site design that wants to sell products online or attract more visitors to your website and purchase your services. It all depends on what you want to do. That is why before you go to a web site designer you need to have what you want to do in mind.

One of the best examples of knowing what you want your web site design to be is the following. You wouldn’t set up a flower shop and market it towards builders. Although this sounds rather silly you can by accident hit the wrong target market if you are not careful, clear and smart about what you are wanting from your web site design.

What about after your website is live?

Notice how we didn’t ask “when your website is finished”. That’s because, we believe, that a website is never truly finished. There are always upgrades to give to your website, updates that need to be added and protection that is essential.

After your website is live you will probably want to think about your marketing. What we mean by this is search engine optimisation that works hand in hand with your web site design. Search engine optimisation is really what makes a website climb through the Google rankings. Without it, you risk not having your website be seen by potential customers. Therefore, one of your priorities after you have your website live is to find a company like The Web Designer Group to perform search engine optimisation on your website.
