The Good Website Design Guide...
Good Website Design - You will find a wealth of information here relating to all aspects of good website design and how to design a good website. If you decide to design your website yourself, you should find this free information about good website designs very helpful. Good Website Design is a necessity for any website. If the design of websites are good, then it will be a true success. If you have a website that doesn't seem to be doing very well, these hints and tips pages may help you find the reason why. All of the websites created by our Nottingham Website Design Company follows all of these rules to make sure that every site we create is of a high standard and worthwhile, getting you the very best value for your money and the very best from the Internet. If you would like to know more, or cover a subject that is not mentioned here, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are always here to help
As you will see from all of the information on these pages about good website design that it is vitally important to hire professionals - poorly designed websites and a design that does not suit your needs will reflect badly on your business. Even if the design of the website looks presentable and appealing to the eye - unless it follows the rules of Internet marketing, correct image handling, that is is optimized for the search engines and the many other areas of web development like copyrighting and how the design of the website will appear in different screen resolutions- it will not do its job properly. Presenting your products and services in the most appealing and professional way that will generate a response from potential customers is a very specialized skill, something we specialize in. Good Website design is what we do best
Good Website Design? Ok, so what makes a good website design? A very good question. This page will hopefully answer that very question for you. Many of the best websites on the Internet have been created by good Website Design Companies.
The best websites out there are good because they are full of useful information, help people in some way, even if it is just offering stacks of useful information, offering something for free is always a good bet. Many people who do have a go at creating their websites themselves can quite rightly do a very good job, but (there's always a "but") they sometimes do not have the time to study all the aspects relating to good website design and know how to create a successful website. I will be honest, there is a large amount to learn. You would need to know about search engine algorithms and spiders (not the eight-legged hairy kind) They would need to know about screen resolutions and how to ensure the site looks good in all screen resolutions. You would need to know about optimizing the website for file sizes and for the search engines, you would also need to know about ftp software and that your main page page MUST be called "index" or "default". This is the reason why many people prefer to employ the services of a good Website Designer who will do all this for them, and then they will then own a professional website specially designed for them and or the purpose it is to be used for and will abide by all the rules of the web.
For some, a good website is fancy website designs, moving graphics and intricate images. For others, the content is the most important thing, a good informative website full of useful information is what they are looking for. So how do you choose which kind of website design is for you. Both maybe. The style, design and content of your website is a very important factor of good a website design. All search engines love simplistic sites, with good clear copy that is 100% relevant and more importantly holds a lot of relevant information. Lets see why...
If you are looking to purchase a used car, you would put a search in Google (for example) for a website selling used cars, would you:
A: Like your results to show a site that offer 3 makes and models, a pretty image down the side, a price list and phone number or....
B: Like to visit a site that holds plenty of makes and models, with good large downloadable pictures available, descriptions of each car, some editorial content on each particular make of vehicle, maybe a few reviews so you can read what other people think about it, a bit about the company themselves, so you know their second name is not "Delboy". Even a little about the history of that mark and the company that makes them.
Just using the example given above, it is plainly visible which website anyone would prefer to visit (I hope you agree on B) and will have people returning to your site time and time again, instead of clicking away and your site being once again lost in the bowels of the big WWW. However, for some reason unknown to me, many people and website designers fail to recognize this and charge people large amounts of money for designing websites that can often be a waste of time.
You are looking at a proven example - on our website, you will see no fancy images, no intricate designs, it is full of good information related to website design, this is exactly the reason why. I want my site to appear on the search engines, mainly Google within the first 2 pages of results for a Nottingham Website Design search. You may only even be on this website because you put a search on Google for "website design nottingham" and there our site was.
The amount of the related information you can put in your website is endless, it just requires a little thought and it will play a huge part on whether people will choose to spend their money with you, or on the next website in the list, it will also show that you know your stuff!
Picture your website...now think of all the different aspects related to your business, think of how you got to where you are today, then think of the knowledge and experience you have and need to operate your kind of service.
Next................ think of each service or product that you offer in detail and why people should choose and have chosen to do business with you. Write down why you are different from your competitors and what makes you stand out.
Make bullet points of the things that you offer, that your competitors do not, you may be better value for money, or offer a better quality service. List all the good elements that directly relate to your company which people may not know about or understand. Finally, think of all the ways your potential customers can get in contact with you after exploring through your online business.
You will now have all the information needed to create an effective, good quality website that will have visitors and customers flocking to do business with you. You will have a good website design that will be loved by all the top search engines who will quite happily list your website within the top rankings when a search is conducted.
Following all the rules I explain in these pages, is the reasons why the search engines' robots, or spiders, rank our webite one the first few pages (if not the first page) for a very highly targeted keyphrase such as "Website Design Nottingham", "Nottingham Website Design" as Google believes our website to be amongst the most informative, useful and worthy websites related to website design out of the millions that are out there, and offer it for you to browse. After all, if you always find the exact information you are looking for, you will use Google repeatedly.
If you do feel you would like to have a website, then contact us, we will be able to create you a good quality website that will work for you. Website design is not for the faint hearted if it is to work for you. A lot of people know a bit about website design and feel they are able to create their site themselves, but they may not know all of the technical aspects that go along with designing a good website, like its compatibility in all the browsers and screen resolutions, they may not know about file size or how to effectively optimize your website. We have a lot of people coming to us asking why their website is nowhere to be seen on the search engines because someone who does not specialize in the subject has created it for them, mostly, we often end up re-designing their website for them which ends up costing them more money than if they had their website designed by a proper web designer in the first place.
Website Design is not expensive and can save you time and money, and end up making you money with a website that serves you in a way it should. There is nothing worse than visiting a site that does not align properly in your browser, has the dreaded side-scroll, looks out-dated and took ages to download - such a site just comes across as totally unprofessional-would you spend your cash with such a companies site.
We offer a full website (4 whole pages) for £390 with hosting, domain name and a full years search engine monitoring and re-submitting for £90 a year. Divide that amount by the 365 days a year in which your website will be online and viewed by the UK's population, then divide the amount by the UK's population who can visit your website. You cannot get better value for money. Make 2 or 3 sales (depending on what you trade in) and your website has paid for itself. Contact Us for more information
