The art of designing web businesses
Aug 22nd 2014 at 12:24 AM
Every business needs a website and this is evident from the stuffing of the web with sites. There are many sites and an equal number of sites are waiting to be launched. Who is making these sites and how they are made and what purpose they serve?
Making of a site
A website is a business. It represents a business and it gets clients for the business it represents. The business could be a traditional one or a web based. A retail shop could extend its sales counter to the web for Internet users or a business could give details of its products and services on the web for web customers.
There are many businesses and every business has different needs. A web design and development company in UK has to understand needs of the business for which it is going to design a site. A site can be designed using a template. It is the most affordable and shortest way of designing a site but these sites don’t have full functionality.
What is a fully functional site?
It reflects the business it is representing in letter and spirit; it works well on search engines and it is able to attract and hold visitors. A site that sells books must look serious but a site that sells music videos could be funny. It could start with a music that would suit to the functionality of the site.
A fully functional site would give comprehensive information about the business it represents. Visitors would have no problem in finding links to the inner pages. It is called navigation. Visitors should be able to navigate the site in a hassle free manner.
How to select a designer?
One considering launching a site should first think of the design instead of looking for a web design and development company in UK. There are many companies that provide design and development services but every group has different services to offer. You can’t determine usability of a company without determining your needs.
If you are unaware about rules of web designing then you can be made fool by a clever designer who can make quick money by designing a cheap template based site for your business.
Think of the design that suits to your needs and then take the blueprint of the design to as many designers as you can to obtain their quotes. Finally you can assign the job of designing your site to the company that has worked for the business you are going to start.
