Points To Remember When Designing A Site

Posted on 30 July 2010

If you want your business to be successful, it is imperative that you have a well -  designed website. Even small, local businesses need a good website. Today’s consumers are used to being able to search online and find the information that they need right away. If your competitor has a website, they will probably choose to patronize that business instead of yours. You do not need to build a complicated website, but you do need a well-designed one. Here are tips to help you build a website that will enable you to reach more customers.

Keep It Simple

Many small businesses make the mistake of designing a very busy website with a great deal of content. The busier a website is, the more unprofessional it can seem.Do not overload your page with content. Keep pictures to a minimum. You should avoid placing unnecessary features on your page, like visitor counters or auto loading music. Keep your website simple so that visitors can quickly find what they need.

Make Sure That It Is Informative

Your website should have all the information that potential customers need in order to contact you.

You should post your address, phone number and email address. If your contact information ever changes, remember to update your website so that all information is correct.

Consider Coupons or Special Offers

Give customers a reason to keep returning to your website by posting special offers. A printable coupon that changes each month can be a good way to reward customer loyalty.

Make Sure It Works

You should periodically check the links on your website to make sure they all work. There should be no dead or broken links. All pictures should load properly as well. A good website is one that is simple, informative and fully operational.
