Starting a business website is just like opening an online business which is active and working round the clock and its never sleep. In the past there were only some of the IT Tycons who had their business websites. But nowadays imagining a business without website is vanishing fast and more and more businesses are moving their companies details online.
The good thing about website is that it doesn’t work 9 – 5 rather it works 24/7/365. Websites have made easy for your clients to access your information about business or even buy products while you sleep or your conventional office sleep.
There are multiple things which a one should keep in mind in order to build website, I am explaining major 5 of them.
1. Budget Estimation
Budget assessment is the primary step to every venture, so before start building your website budget assessments is essential. Web Hosting bundled with premium feature like space, bandwidth could be costly most of the time. So knowing what would be cost to get premium hosting is a initial step to your website.
knowing what features are needed for your website. while making any type of assessment its not the idea to build a biggest or best website but it should be what exactly your business needs and what would be the appropriate for your company.
It is understood that a larger website would require more efforts, more content, more featured hosting which surely would cost more. Bigger sites like Facebook, yahoo or others spends more money on hosting server than total budget of a normal company and they spends so they could reach more and more visitors or clients.
However most of the business websites needs only few dollars for their web hosting services.
2. Wish List
Before making any website it is important that one should know what exactly he desires from his website. A normal business website may consist of few content pages and inquiring forms or contact info but on the other hand a complex shopping site may consist of multiple level categories or products and their pictures etc.
The more organize you in arranging info the more easier it would be for visitor.
So it is important to know what type of functionalities are needed and what type of info is needed by the visitors. Creating problems for the visitor by using wrong functionalities may cause loss to your business. Use only those features which are required and easy to navigate.
3. What is your design requirement
Different business require different types of design and developed websites. Eye Catchy website design is almost essential for every business. Good and easy navigation or easy access of info regarding products or services help your visitor to get attached to you.
CreativeON for example is equipped with good team and tools to fulfill all your design and development requirement. Getting help of professional designer or developer is always good.
Good design always attract and provide good shopping experience to the visitors. Good design may not be accessible by all the business or may be hard for everyone to invest on the good design in the initial steps of the business.
Nowadays most of the user comes to you by search engines so one should not leave the design and development canvas without making it sure whether the end product would be SEO friendly and its appears in search engines indexes. So Content without relevant keywords won’t get more traffic so be sure that your content is according to your business and brand.
4. Choosing domain name.
As per my knowledge domain names are important. Easy to remember domain name with less characters do affect the businesses. Domain names performs a lot when viewed by the visitors, specially in including setting exceptions, accessibility and building a brand.
Domain names are your storefront or front desk of your business in search engines. Currently there are multiple TLD’s available to buy like .com, .net, .mob, .pk, .biz etc so choose a best suited according to your business. The more attractive the name is the more potential it has to be remembered.
5. Routine Maintenance.
The website with faults and problems don’t get attention of the visitors instead they annoy. So it is stronly recommended to maintain your website on regular basis.
Information, pricing, items description should be updated. Always maintain the latest info and keep on deleting the old info so the client don’t get confused by the misleading info. Old info should be replaced by the new ones.
keep your contact info up to date and use the images of the products which are real ones and latest which reflects the your brand.
