Thinking about how to make a website? Here are a few helpful hints I thought I’d share with you which I’ve discovered whilst running my Perth web design and online business consulting company during the last 5 years.
The larger the website you build, the more free visitors you will get (as long as you understand Search Engine Optimisation, more on that later). So, if you are building a website to either promote an existing business, or to make money from the website in it’s own right (for example by having adverts on the site from which you make an income), bigger is usually better.
Avoid using images, graphics, audio files, videos or animations that do not speak directly to the subject of the content. For starters they slow down load time but more importantly they distract from the message you are trying to convey in the content. Don’t add anything to the webpage simply because you think it looks good. Extraneous content is just clutter and it can confuse and frustrate the visitor.
Websites are nothing but online stores without any shopkeeper and thus it needs to be much interactive. make a website interactive? Well, there are several ways that you can follow. But it’s very pathetic that today when hundreds of IT companies have stepped into the trade, finding out the most experienced and skilled planner has become challenging. Everyone is saying that we can provide you the best design at the best price. But, the outcome in most of the cases is really frustrating. So, it’s very important that you gain some knowledge on this and guide your planner effectively. It’ll help you getting the most attractive design, while you also can be able to save a few bucks.
Today there are many ways for you to make a website and some of them do not require any special knowledge at all. For example, in Google there are some special templates that are available for everyone, who wants to make a website. There you will only have to make the overall look of your website and define the main keywords and phrases, there will be. After that you can start making all the pages that your website will have and the program will take care of the rest for you. To keep viewer staying on your site, you have to ensure that all your links are completely operational, as well as there is not any dead link. It means there is page not found (404) that displays whenever someone will click on your links from main page.
I started out using 1&1 who provide web hosting, design templates and much more. I still have some of my early websites hosted with them. They are very good. However about 3 years ago I came across an even better option. I have dedicated an entire section of my main website to them because I have been so impressed. More about that shortly.
Each page, starting with the homepage to your very deepest tier, should be researched and planned. Following the steps I have already outlined earlier in this article, you are helping to ensure your success. This can be a very time consuming process and to some extent frustrating when you are having trouble finding keywords. These two reasons are probably why many people (beginners to experts) have invested in software to expedite and simplify the procedure of making a successful website.
