Professional Business Website Design
Your website is an extension of your business. It’s your storefront, greeting potential and current customers. Your website must represent your company well and strengthen your brand. A well designed business website has the ability to speak directly to your target audience, providing information exactly as they need it, giving them an experience that convinces them to become your customer.
Putting together a business website involves a number of factors.
1. YOU NEED A WEBSITE DOMAIN NAME. A unique domain name or “URL” is your address on the internet. You can put up a site on free hosting or even paid hosting plans without a domain name, but you own unique domain name provides extra branding for your site and makes it easier for people to remember the URL.
2. YOU NEED WEBSITE HOSTING. If the domain name is the address then hosting is the “house” where your website and all the Web pages reside. While it’s possible to build a website on your personal computer and never move it online, it would be pointless. No one but you will ever be able to see it. So you must find a Web hosting provider.
3. YOU NEED PROFESSIONAL WEB DESIGN. This is where so many businesses make huge mistakes! They put up some info and expect it to be found on the search engines by customers. Websites must be built with search engines in mind from the ground up. SEO (search engine optimization) must be an integral part of the design process right from the beginning.
