Web Design Tips: Find a Good Web Design To Emulate
Research great website designs that you like as a reference to provide your web designer an accurate visual of what you would like your site to be. We do recommend being realistic in your expectations, your budget will reflect what’s possible. How your webs design will look and its function should be based on what your consumers are looking for. It should convey your company branding and brand messaging, along with your marketing communication in a simple way that is easy to understand. Collaborate with your website designer to connect on your business goals and the needs your customers will have when they visit your website.

When choosing a WordPress Design Theme your website layout and aesthetics will require some custom code to change specific elements. Avoid customization by starting with a theme for your website that is closest to your desired end result.
Never compromise the user experience or functionality for a web design aesthetic. Often we the business owners are too close to the business and can make decisions for our website based on our own personal preferences, when in fact we should be allowing our consumers to tell us what the website should be and look like.
Research the competition to understand:
- What do they do right?
- How is your company different?
- How can you convey that message in an “easy to understand” way?
- What is your playing to win strategy?
- What purposes does your website serve for your business?
- How will you win at your business goals?
Website Useability is the most important part of the user experience when they visit your website. Your website useability should be intuitive and provide value in the user’s time on site.
Is your website going to be responsive?
Responsive website design allows your website to automatically re-size to any device, whether it is being viewed on a desktop, mobile or tablet. According to Search Engine Watch 46% of users searching are using a mobile device to do it. Be sure that your website is mobile responsive, ask us how.
