Web Design And Development

September 4th, 2018

Today’s web design encompasses many different technologies that must blend seamlessly to allow for the best combination of form and function in a site. If you’ve decided to design your first website, it can be a daunting task. Rather, most professionals suggest finding a low-cost alternative. Many web developers have a forte – either design or programming. Finding a well-rounded website design firm or individual is difficult, but the business’ portfolio is the best indication.

In order to be certain of the firm’s abilities, further scrutinizing is imperative. The firm has a nice looking site that flows well and has an aesthetic appeal, a great testament to their abilities. But does this eye for the creative flow through its clients’ sites, too? It’s importance to be certain of this question. Browsing through the portfolio alone often isn’t enough. Get feedback from the clients if possible (with the firm’s approval). Are they satisfied? Do they feel that the firm was easy to work with? And moreover, is there site an adequate representation of what they wanted?

Once you’ve found a firm that you feel is worthwhile, it’s time to ask for a quote. Hopefully, the firm has a questionnaire that you can easily fill out. These surveys will ask questions about how many pages your site will have, whether writing is necessary, and if there is any extra functionality. You probably already have a budget in mind, but it’s better for a company to tell you what they think the work is worth. They know how many hours of work are involved, and will (hopefully) break down the price for you to let you know exactly what you’re paying for. Web design can range from $5 to $100 per hour, and many web designers have a forte that they will charge more for. Sometimes, it’s even necessary to work with multiple firms to get the best deal.

Today’s trend is outsourcing. Many Indian and other overseas programmers and designers are willing to work for exponentially less than American web designers. This trend has its pros and cons. While the money saved is beneficial, the overseas designers rarely speak fluent English. Communication is an imperative part of web design, and often projects can go awry without it.

Obviously, you have a difficult design ahead of you. With all the great web design firms out there, sometimes cost does equal quality. Make a decision, get a second opinion, and always be thorough in your explanation of what you’re looking for.

Choosing a Web Package – A Guideline

September 3rd, 2018

One of the very first questions you need to ask yourself is: Why do I need a web site? Several answers might pop up; to boost my sales, to make myself known, to have a reference for my clients, to start a new business,…the list can go on and on…but how do you determine what’s right for you and your business?

The way to evaluate possible contenders for the job is to ask the right questions. Here are some questions you cannot afford not to ask.

In reference to the company that provides web services, you should ask…

1. Are they offering just web development, or, just web hosting, or do they have a vast range of services linked to the web industry?…i.e. do they offer the whole spectrum of services linked with web sites?

2. How do their prices compare to other companies who are providing the same services?

3. How flexible are they to my requirements…a) do they offer extra pages? b) do they offer additional hosting? c) is support part of the price I’m paying?

4. Do they offer dynamic sites? Normally this would give an indication of how experienced their programmers are in developing sites.

5. Are there any references to ‘search engine optimization’ on their site? If not, most probably they are not going to write my site in a way that major search engines can find it and rank it highly.

6. Do they offer search engine optimization? This is very important if I need to rank high and make the task for prospective customers to find me an easy one.

These are questions you should ask and if in doubt don’t hesitate to contact the company before investing your money in them. Most importantly they need to have fast and reliable support, although this can only be verified when it’s too late, i.e. you have already paid for it.

Other decisions you need to take is how your web site should look like. Do you require a static site with a lot of content, or minimum content with impressive graphics, sounds and animations? This would obviously depend on the nature of your business and the way you need to promote your image. The company you choose need to have enough experience to help you make this decision based on your business’ perspectives.

Whatever the case, as in nearly all things in life, a moment of reflection and some research are fundamental in order to make the right decision.

Pay Proper Attention to Every Aspect of Web Design

August 31st, 2018

When you are planning to sell a particular product or business via your website, you would naturally have to look after it’s every aspect. A site is somewhat like a store which you maintain in the best possible way in order to attract and impress your customers. When you are on your website, in a similar way you would have to maintain in the best possible way so that you can pull in more customers.

When you are launching your website, the idea of the site should always be to make it presentable and the best way that you can do so is through web design. In fact without proper web designing, your site would look dull and consequently it would fail to attract the customers from wide spheres.

There are several aspects included in the web design. However, you as a web master must at least have some basic knowledge about the design. Otherwise it may turn out that you are being deceived by the designer that you hire.

Content is also an important part of your website. Make sure that the web design should always be in accordance with the information provided in the content. Otherwise your customers whom you are intending for making the site would simply get confused regarding the actual purpose of your site.

Graphical elements are definitely an important part of web design. It has to be implemented in the site thoughtfully in accordance with not only the content but also the space provided in the web page by the web developer. If there are excess of graphical elements in the site, it would naturally take more time to download. This in course of time would make your visitors annoyed. As a result, it might be the last time for which your visitors are visiting your site.

You obviously do not want such a situation because in that case, your entire business would turn into a great loss. Apart from the graphical elements, images, color of the background and the text, the font size should all be carefully looked after. Make sure that you give such a font size so that it is easily readable by your visitors in the monitor. These are actually nothing but just a creation of good impression of your web site. Once your site gets popular, you would automatically find that there are lots of visitors in your site only due to your past website reputation.

Therefore try to be careful in every aspect of the web design that you do. If however, you think that you do require a web designer for designing your site in the most professional manner, you should look for experienced and qualified designers. These designers can be hired from some reputed companies or as individual as well. You would have to pay slightly higher rate to the designer but this would definitely prove to be worth the value of the profit and success that you get at the end.
