In this blog post we are sharing some of our best practices that will help you streamline yours and also, if you do not have the resources, trust us enough to outsource web design projects to us.
1. Need Assessment
By need assessment, we confirm that why does the client need a website. The various reasons that a client thinks that his business needs website to perform better are:
• New, qualified leads, increase in the number of leads
• Drive online presence
• Leverage other/offline advertising, e.g. a landing site for a direct mail campaign
• Improve service, recall in the consumer’s mind
• Build a list
• Provide detailed product information
• Answer FAQs to save on support costs and time
• Provide testimonials to build trust
• Update and engage customers
• Reduce operational costs
• And many more.
Some businesses also build a web presence with the help of professional web design studios to win the competitions. After all the business wins that is more user friendly and engages users consistently. Some of the business also leverages websites to market research, spread knowledge, create buzz about new products and so on.
2. Site Structure
Once we are clear with what the client needs and wants to achieve via his website, we take things forward. We develop and propose a site structure that forms the framework on which the website will be made.Most likely in the initial stages it looks like a list of things that your website contains. This list or the diagram contains the type of pages, number, structure of each page, type of the content of pages, links to each other and much more.
3. Core Design Concepts
This is the core design process for us. Here the real work begins. You can call it the execution phase of the plan. Here the colors, fonts, style and tone of your web design is set keeping in mind your branding requirements. We also create a mockup of your homepage that shows how will your end product look like. This is only a mock up, no real work can be achieved with this. This is designed to help you get an idea about the look and feel of the website.
4. Coding the Templates
These days HTML5 and CSS are the most popular languages. These languages render the web page in the correct way, with the right graphics and style information applied.
As Per Deft Creative, a web design company in UK:
The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) layout guidelines as to how XHTML and CSS code should be written. By following these guidelines it is possible to get the code to validate. A bit like running a page of text through a spellchecker, a similar tool exists for website code. Having clean and well written code is important for many reasons (to be covered in a later article) but brings many benefits.
The last step and most crucial one. It needs to be made sure that we have completed the building and are now testing the templates for cross browser functionality. We test for consistency of layout, and make sure everything works no matter how a visitor might be viewing your website.
Testing is an intensive process and we need to make sure that we are covering everything possible right from MACs and PCs, Windows 98, 2000, XP etc, various and different versions of each.
6.Site Structure and Content Population
The coded templates are then used to build the structure of the website.
We hope the steps help you build a functional website that drives up your revenue.
