Your website is an important part of how you reach your target customers, showcase your business and enhance the client experience. Many small businesses don’t know where to start, but luckily, it’s much easier than you think. Just follow our 5 simple steps to creating a site which is perfect for your business.
Step 1 – Speak to Expert Web Designers
Rather than worrying about how and where to get started, get a professional web design team on board (ahem, like us at JJ Solutions!) who can do most, if not all the work for you. Experienced website designers will take the time to find out more about your business goals and target audience. You’ve got nothing to lose from having a no-obligation chat through your ideas and concerns, and they’ll provide you with a free quote based on your needs. They’ll also help you to decide on the type of site required, whether that’s a brochure-style website to showcase your services or an e-commerce platform. From here on, the fun really starts.
Step 2 – Initial Designs
Your web designers will guide you in terms of the best size for your site and how many pages to choose for your main menu, structuring your sitemap. Next, the initial design framework for your site will be created. You’ll also get the chance to see how it may look in reality, seeing some of the visual elements of your website’s design.
Step 3 – Content & Images
While the initial framework provides your site with a blank canvas, it can now be filled with content and images which visitors to your site will read and see. This is also something a web design company can assist with, although providing your own images is always a bonus to offer a unique insight into the types of work you do. Use their copywriting services for your website pages to make your content more impactful. Need help finding images? We can provide assistance with this and some really important guidance too to help you avoid encountering copyright issues.
Step 4 – Final Pages
Once you have the bulk of your content completed, it’s time to create the final pages of your site, although of course, you can continually add content after its launch such as blogs, news, landing pages and case studies. These final pages could consist of aspects such as a gallery of your work, price lists and a contact form. Your website will now be ready for review and sign off.
Step 5 – Launch!
Congratulations! Your new website will now be launched and will be ready to be viewed and used. You should now consider how to build on your success, including SEO services to help your target customers find your site more easily. Whatever you need, good web designers will suggest a package to suit your requirements, size and budget.
