Website – Maybe you’re thinking about having your first one made or maybe you need a new better one. In any case, you should know atleast some of the basics about design, and no worries I’ll make it real quick!

First of all let’s face it!

A website is core of your online marketing activities.

If you look at all the online channels and techniques, what they actually do is bring visitors to your website.

The main purpose of a website is turning these visitors into customers.

In marketing terms, this is called Conversion.

A bad website will basically cause you a waste of money on other marketing methods because you don’t need more visitors if you can’t turn them into customers.

So, the better your website User Experience is; the more more visitors are converted into buying Customers. It doesn’t matter whether you sell consumer products online, provide local services, or build houses.

Many people in the industry call themselves web designers but they really are just a bunch of geeks with some basic coding knowledge. Of-course, without much planning, they will pretty quickly create a website for you with lots of information, photos, & contacts.

But the question is: Is that a way to turn visitors into your customers? Is that what you need?

And the answer is simple NO!

What you have to do is look for someone serious about web design. That’s where I come in!

This is how I make websites by following the 4-phase web design process.

Analysis & Planning

The first step is always about information gathering; identify things like the website purpose & clues in target audience. In this phase we define the site map, design the wireframe models, plan on the structures & technologies that we’re about to use.

Content & S.E.O

A very important part of the process is choosing the right text, photos and videos all optimized not only for visitors, but also for Search Engines. I partner with proficient S.E.O copywriters experienced in writing web content for different industries to ensure your site ranks high.

Design & Development

Not only do I focus on the visual style in this phase but also on the usability of the User Interface for the best possible User Experience. Here, I actually create the website using HTML styled in CSS with some help of databases and other technologies as well.

Testing & Deployment

I test all the technical features like code and scripts, browser compatibility, and scan to see if the website fulfills it’s purpose. After we definitely launch the site, my job is not done yet. I always monitor what’s happening which enables me to find any possible deficiencies.

As you’ve just seen, Web Design is a very complex process but I believe this is how websites should be done; and my clients too! If you share my passion for high quality websites.

Responsive Design

So right away you’re probably wondering; what is responsive design? Well in today’s world, the internet is one of the most important forms of media & the internet is mostly consumed using desktop computers right? But wait how about mobile devices, smart phones & tablets?

The share of internet usage on these devices is growing everyday. In 2011 mobile browsing took a share of about 11%. In 2013, It was near to 25%. 2014 was the first year mobile exceeded desktop internet usage.

So what does all this mean to you? Well, it means if you don’t want to lose any potential clients, then you need a great looking website. One that is also optimized for mobile browsing because the problem of many current websites is that; the User Experience on mobile devices is…… Well, how do I put it? Terrible.

And that’s a mission for Responsive Design. A responsive website responds to the screen size of the device you are viewing it on.

So, instead of creating different websites for different devices. Your responsive website rearranges the elements to fit any screen. So you’ll get more happy visitors which also leads to more happy customers.
