In this post I try to provide 3 easy yet critical rules to apply when deciding whether you’ve made the right choice in who will make your website. They are relevant to anyone who does business Online or with computers. A business today has no way to avoid it, many are mandated federally to do it. They must be built around an IT infrastructure where that business’, clients’ and internal records’ are digitally stored and protected. They are also relevant to anyone marketing online or looking to build a website.. I intend to keep them brief so that you can expand on them yourself.
The foundation of a great website design can be summarized into 3 elements; namely Design, Content, and Organization.
When designing your website, your focus would normally be on what the primary goals of that website are, and finding the best ways to achieve these goals. For example, if you were planning on setting up an online store, your emphasis would be how to provide a secure checkout system. However, achieving your primary goals will only result in a website that will carry out the functions that you intend for it; but will not make your website great.
If your desire is to have a great website that stands out from all others, then you will have to have your goals right on one hand, but also work on the 3 elements; Design, Content, and Organization, in order to harness the full potential of your website.
