There’s a few things to take in consideration when deciding on what platform to use for our website. Always make an informed decision on this as it’s the last thing you want to change once the website is finished. Your web designer should be able to guide you through the decision process.
Firstly you need to make sure you understand the platform. Even if you don’t have the technical knowledge for an in-depth understanding, you should at least find out what the platform has to offer and what the limitations are and check out a few online reviews for pros and cons.
Secondly question yourself whether you have full control over your website both offline and online. Last thing you want is to build it through a computer programme that you may lose access to. You need to have a website built on an online platform that you have access to and can update in the future, hosted on a cloud that you can access anytime from anywhere in the world.
And thirdly, think of all the changes that you will want to do in the future: update your services and pricing lists, update your products and stock, post articles and news, add team-members and testimonials. Can you do all these on the platform you chose for your website?
There’s not a lot of things on a website that can be as discouraging as fonts. And I’m not talking here about the fonts in your logo, that’s a whole other story. I’m talking about the fonts that you use on your website to transmit certain content over to the visitors.
Color schemes are such an important part of your business, branding and website that it’s crucial to get it right. Too dark, too bright, too colorful, too cold or too hot and all your strategy can fall apart. So be wise when choosing your colors.
When it comes to choosing colours, just like any other decision related to building your website, should be done only when you’re well-informed
There’s plenty of online tools to help you make the right choice. Each business is unique (or at least should try to be) therefore don’t let yourself influenced too much by the trends in your industry. Just because the colors worked for someone, doesn’t mean they’ll work just as well for your business.
Don’t let your personal choice in colours influence your decision either. At the end of the day you need a color combination that works for your business and keep your visitors engaged, nobody comes to your website for your favorite color or your favorite font.
Stay away from dark backgrounds unless you want to create a particular vibe of mystery, intimacy or underground. Don’t go too colorful, keep it simple, keep a neutral color for backgrounds and a pleasing, easy on the eyes color for highlights and accents.
Ceck out how your comination of colors looks like before implementing it on the website with online apps such as coolors.
After looking into fonts, colors and other graphic aspects of building the best website for your business you might want to check out your content. It’s one of those factors that keeps a visitor interested or drives them away.
It’s all great when you have the perfect mix of fonts, colors and content but what do you do with all that to encourage your visitors to contact you.
A call-to-action button can be anything from a newsletter subscription button to a button for inquiries and quote requests or a live-chat box, even a facebook chat icon like the one Life Cycles has on this website..
Don’t overthink to much about what to write in these call-to-action buttons, be honest about what you’re offering through the click and why people should subscribe or contact your for a quote.
Why you need to have call-to-action buttons? Simply put, how else are your visitors gonna now you’re available for a chat. You need to let them know you do send newsletter, you do have special offers sometimes and give them a reason to be up to date with your business.
