Website Design Tips

Most businesses or individuals understand that they need a website. Most have no clue about the features they will need for that website. It is important that YOU, the Designer/develoer, know what features, that your clients will need, on your website.

A new business can be difficult in finding the right website designer, frankly, it can seem daunting.

In most cases, most new clients don’t know what they want. What usually happens is that new business owners ask a website designer to create a website (And that’s all the information they give you! They don’t ask for one that looks similar to their competitor, and if they do, it’s at least a step in the right direction, but instead, they just want one that looks good!). THEY ARE LIMITING THEMSELVES IF YOU ALLOW THEM TO DO THIS! The truth is that THEIR competitors website may look good, but it may not be the best for the current client.

We (Net Magik Pros Web Design) generally explain that there are three ways to create a website:

  1. Fast
  2. Cheap
  3. Correct

Then we follow that up with, “pick two of those ways.”
This is a harsh truth to hear, but,

  • if the website is created fast and cheap, it won’t be correct
  • if it’s created fast and correct, it wont be cheap
  • if it is created cheap and correct, (yep, you guessed it) it won’t be created fast

To Help, Here’s some Top Website Design Tips You Need

  1. Have Well-Defined Goals
    What exactly do you want to achieve with your website? The best way to achieve success with your website is to have a clear goal of what you want to achieve. Make sure that you communicate this/these goal(s) clearly to your website designer.
  2. Tell Your Customers What You Can Do For Them
    When a website visitor lands on your website, they should find out immediately what you can do for them. Don’t overload your website with too much information, keep it simple. Make the important message very visible on the first page. Don’t focus too much on what YOU DO, instead, tell them (the website visitor) how they will benefit from YOU as a customer.
  3. Make Your Call To Action (CTA) Very Visible
    Is there a clear direction for your website visitors? After reading your services/products, your website visitor should know exactly what to do next. Remember, your CTA should give your website visitors an incentive to take the next step. A good example includes:

    • Click This Button To Claim Your Free Report
    • Sign Up Now For Your Free Consultation

  4. Use High-Quality Pictures and Videos
    Don’t just download a free image from Google, create your own pictures or buy high-quality ones from Stock Image websites.Videos are also very important, create relevant videos for your website. Making videos is one of the easiest ways to turn your website visitor into a customer.
  5. Choose a Reliable Hosting Company
    The worst thing that could happen to a business owner is to have your website go offline when potential customer is visiting your website. A lot of new business owners choose a low-cost website host to save cost. Unfortunately, they end up with server downtime. A potential client will probably think you are not ready for business if your server is constantly down. Make sure you choose a reliable host even if it means paying more. If the server is down, the website(s) are down.
  6. Keep Your Contact Details Very Visible
    Don’t let your website visitors search for a way to contact you. Provide as many ways to contact you as possible. Provide options that include contacting you through your business email, social media, phone number, or live chat. Today, live chat is important. The faster a client “speaks” with you, the more likely they are to become your client.
  7. Choose a Reputable Website Designer/Developer
    One of the biggest problems most business owners face is choosing a website designer/developer to use. There are thousands of people claiming to be a good designer/developer, most of them lack experience. Do your research and ask for web designers/developers for their portfolio and/or testimonies. Reach out to business owners with a website you like and ask them for recommendations. Don’t just choose anyone to be your designer/developer, choose someone who clearly knows what he is doing.

Conclusion

Designing/Developing a good website can be challenging. It doesn’t have to be a headache for you. Get exactly what you want by focusing on working with the designers/developers.

There are so many benefits with designers/developers that, you cannot afford to ignore them any longer. This type of website will help you to attract the right type of clients and grow your business.
