Website Design – Where to Start

Website Design – Where to Start

Do you consider yourself to be internet savvy and yet have a hard time designing your own website? Just because you use the internet daily does not necessarily mean you have the insight to what makes a website particularly good. If you are trying to get a website started for a business, now is the time! It is said that companies that lack a presence on the internet could become obsoleste in the very near future. It may seem like an overwhelming task, but in reality, with a little assistance, it's not very tricky at all. We at Beverly Hills Internet Consulting can help you get there.

Before you start, it is imperative that you have basic computer skills, a computer and internet you can have unlimited access to, a website construction tool and a location to publish your website. Then you can begin looking at more creative aspects of website design.

The most important part about designing your website is to know your objectives. Are you creating the site to sell a product? It's important to make you page user friendly or your customers will be less inclined to purchase products from you. Maybe your webpage is just a hobby, a place for your own personal development. Whatever the case, your objectives should be the driving force of every part of your website design, from the welcome page to the logout menu. Who is your target audience? How will you draw them to your site? This is where creativity becomes a big player in the success of your website. People will look into something that looks new and fresh. Pick a theme, something that complements your goals well, and stick with that theme through the entire website so customers do not get lost.

Once the general layout of your website is created, it's time to put some textual content in. What kind of tone will you choose to use? Whether you choose a mood that is very professional or a little more casual will speak volumes about who you are. Remember your target audience and objectives as you decide the tone you want to set for your site. Double and triple check your spelling and grammar before publishing anything. A mistake could mean more than an embarrassment, it could lose you sales. As you get farther along in your website design, remember, we're here to help you if you get stuck anywhere along the way!
