Website, maybe you’re thinking about having your first one made? or maybe you just need a new, better one?

In any case you should know at least some of the
basics about web design, and no worries…it will only take three minutes. 

First of all, let’s face it a website is the core of your online marketing activities, if you look at all the marketing channels and techniques, what they actually do is bring visitors to your website.

And the main purpose of a website is turning these visitors into customers, in marketing terms this is called “conversion”. 

A bad website will basically cause you to waste money on other marketing methods because you don’t need more visitors if you can’t turn them into customers.

So the better your website is the more visitors are converted into your customers, and it doesn’t really matter whether you sell consumer products online provide local services or build houses.

Many people in the industry call themselves web designers but they’re really just a bunch of geeks with some basic coding knowledge.

Of course without much planning they will pretty quickly create a website for you, with lots of information photos, contacts but the question is is that the way to turn the visitors into your customers?
is that what you need? and the answer is simple, NO!

What you have to do is look for someone serious about web design well, that’s where we come in…this is how we make websites, by following this 7 phase web design process.

Phase 1 – ANALYSIS, the first step is always about information gathering identifying things like the website purpose goals and target audience.

Phase 2 – PLANNING, a plan includes a definition of the site map structure and technologies that we are about to use.

Phase 3 – DESIGN, not only to be focused on wireframe models and the visual style in this stage but also on the usability of the user interface for the best possible user experience.

Phase 4 – CONTENT, a very important part of the process is choosing the right text, photos or videos all optimised not only for your visitors but also for search engines.

Phase 5 – DEVELOPMENT, here we actually create the website using hypertext markup language and cascading style with some help from databases and other technologies as well, if needed our websites can be made accessible to mobile devices too.

Phase 6 – TESTING, we test all the technical features like code and scripts compatibility with major browsers but also we ask ourselves if the website really fulfills its purpose.

Phase 7 – DEPLOYMENT, after we launch the site our job is definitely not done yet, we always monitor what’s happening after the start enabling us to fix any possible deficiencies and, if you want we can also manage the future maintenance and updates for you.

As you’ve just seen web design is a very complex process but we believe this is how websites should be done, and our customers agree and if you share our passion for high-quality websites…let’s get in touch we’ll be happy to help you with what we do best.

Website Design

There are so many options open to you. Obviously these options are all budget dependent and what you want your new website to achieve.

If you’re on a tight budget, the most popular choice is to work with a customisable theme, which can be implemented and used on a Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress, Drupal or Joomla.

If you have a very clear vision of what you are looking for, why not have a theme built for you.
