There are many aspects to planning and establishing a corporate website, and these will vary depending upon the type of industry the business operates in. However, the basics of marketing will be similar whether it is a business-to-business or a consumer-retail orientation, or whether the company has elements of both. Website design and development services (http://www.wsdresource.com/website-design.php) are geared to helping a firm create the image that it deserves.
Included are several ideas that the website design team may want to include in its discussions. Although the elements listed here may not always apply to your situation or may require further elaboration, this "check off" list should be beneficial in helping to understand the scope and timeline of the website, and also in setting expectations.
Tip # 1: Graphic Design Review - Graphic designers can determine the color scheme and page layout of the website by reviewing the websites of competitors, and then listing what is liked and disliked about them. Point to several websites, noting the "look and feel" that should be emulated. Business website planning and design services (http://www.wsdresource.com/websiteplanning.php) can help establish the website that best fits the company’s needs.
Tip # 2: Website Functionality - Website development process and planning services are dedicated to developing a website that will drive end users to take action. A website should serve as a sales tool that provides information about products and services and, going beyond the sales aspect, should entice visitors to bookmark the site, read the monthly newsletter, download material and even communicate by email or telephone. These are reasons why it is important to carefully consider both the functionality and presentation of the website.
Tip # 3: Site Navigation - Key to creating a user-friendly website is having a page structure that is easy to navigate. Mapping out and interlinking the pages will help deliver the content of the website to visitors.
Tip # 4: Page Content - There is no more challenging aspect to designing a website than creating the content for each of its pages. Use much of the content from the current site, but also add additional images and text.
It takes time and patience to write and carefully review text that will be engaging and will attract the attention and hold the interest of visitors. In satisfying the need for visuals, accounts with the agencies like http://www.istock.com and http://www.stockxpert.com, both of which have high-resolution images, will enhance the presentation of the website.
Tip # 5: Search Engine Optimization - Unlike many other website developers, incorporating SEO applications into every one of the projects is crucial. An important part of the website development process and planning services (http://www.wsdresource.com/websiteplanning.php) relates to the ability to create a website that will be recognized and indexed by search engine crawlers.
