The design of a website is important because it affects how quickly visitors can find what they are looking for. If it is difficult or frustrating, the visitor will leave and try on another site – and that is a lost opportunity.
A good design will be easy to understand and navigate, helping potential customers find what they need and taking you one step closer to making a sale or getting in touch.
We’ve listed a couple of tips below for you to think about when upgrading or creating a new website.
Questions to Ask Yourself:
- GOALS – What goals are you trying to accomplish?
- TARGET AUDIENCE – Who is your target audience?
- FREQUENCY– Who is going to manage the website?
- GOOGLE ANALYTICS – Who will manage your Google Analytics account?
- WEBSITE SECURITY – Who is going to backup your website files & database?
Keys to Success:
- Choosing the Right CMS Platform
The most popular content management systems—WordPress, Drupal and Joomla!—employ an open-source development model. The “Big Three” have thus spawned large communities of programmers who make improvements and create add-ons that build on the software’s core capabilities. These communities are part of larger ecosystems that include extensive training resources such as books, videos and conferences. WordPress is by far the most widely used CMS. Compared with the other open-source systems, WordPress stands out for ease of use. Designers in particular seem to prefer it over Drupal and Joomla.
- Picking the Right Design
First impressions matter — especially in the inbox. The right email design will direct your focus to the content itself, not the structure holding it in place. It should be simple, concise, well-organized, and have an intuitive flow. Your company will also need to decide between a single-column layount, multi-column layout or a hybrid layout.
- Creating a Dynamic User Exerience
Building an email list takes time and is critical to marketing success in the digital age.
If your email list is short, scant on information, or full of errors and redundancies, that poor-quality data can be worse than having no data at all! There are many ways we can help you build your own email lists! We also have local & national email lists that you can rent.
- Deliver Valuable Content
In order to be successful with email marketing, your company will need to create emails that subscribers want to open. Questions to Consider:
What is the valuable piece of content?
Why is this piece of content important?
How will this content benefit the end user?
