Wondering How to Build a Website – You Need an Expert!
Building a website is an extremely complex process. If your toilet was broken, then you’d call a plumber, right? Likewise, if you were having electrical problems, then you’d call an electrician. Therefore, building a website should be seen in that vein. It’s not something you should attempt to do on your own if you lack web design and coding experience. We are going to share in our blog below the components that go into building a website.
Why Should I Hire a Professional Web Designer Versus Building it Myself?
First, a website developer needs the below items before they can build a website.
- Hosting Platform
- Coding Knowledge
- Web Design Knowledge
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Experience
The above five pieces are how you create a well-designed, optimized, and user-friendly website.
Have you ever been to a website and the following happened…
- Didn’t load completely or slowly
- Links or buttons were broken
- Wasn’t a mobile-friendly website
- Not user-friendly and hard to find the right information
- Was not visually appealing
- Copy filled with typos and misspellings
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it’s highly likely that was a DIY-built site. A professional web designer and marketing team would ensure none of those problems were present before launching a new site!
Six Vital Components of Website Design
When building and designing a website there are six major components to consider. Those are:
A website should attract and retain its visitor’s attention. You need a website that has the right balance of graphics and content. Consequently, you can have too much of one and not enough of the other. An important part of a good web design is also that everything makes sense. You want people to know right away when they visit your site what you sell/do, why they should buy that product or service, and how to contact you or proceed with that purchase. A huge mistake many first-time website builders or DIY builders make is they make it too complicated for the user. Everything should be straight forward on where to look. For example, the navigation bar should include all major pages a visitor or potential buyer would want to visit.
Both your design and copy should match your branding. This goes far beyond just having your logo present on your website. It should include your brand’s color palette/scheme throughout the entire website. If your colors are green and gold, then you should not have a website filled with hot pink and yellow. Likewise, your content should match your brand’s vision and mission. For instance, if you boost being a ‘green company’, then your website content should back that claim up.
User Experience (UX)
You should never make your website users, a.k.a. potential customers, feel like they are unsure how to utilize your website. If it’s too complicated, then people will simply leave your website. Similarly, if images and content take too long to load, then again people will close out of your site. Never make your users feel as if they are wasting time trying to figure out how to use your website. All of this is part of the user experience (UX). Therefore, there is much more to a good website, than it ‘looks pretty’. It must also operate smoothly and efficiently for every single user.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Having a website that looks and works great is only half the battle. How do you expect people to find your website, and, in turn, your business? If you answered online, particularly through a search engine like Google, then you answered right. Great rankings on Google, or any search engine, are achieved through SEO. SEO is a complex process and one that is best left to an experienced web designer and SEO team. They understand all the SEO strategies, and which work best for each unique business.
While design is very important to a website, content is equally important. This is how people can read and understand exactly what your business does and how your products/services are superior. Additionally, content is key to SEO rankings!
Finally, another important component of a great website is its mobile responsiveness. Did you know 276.8 million people accessed the internet on their mobile devices in 2021? That means your website needs to have a mobile version that is just as easy to use on a phone.
