1) Define what success means
Before starting out your website you need to know where you want to go. Setting up goals is necessary right before you jump into designing a website. If you do not plan where you want to go, no matter how hard you try, you won’t go far.
You need to plan things right from the start, and your whole team needs to be on the same page. Where you want your company to go, and work on that.
2) Start with your ideas on paper
Before you step into the big ocean, you need to test the depth of the ocean. For that, you need to put things on paper before you put them on the website. One good thing that will happen is when you will put them on paper, you will be able to be more creative and know what is wrong with the design barehand.
For now, thins might not look an ideal thing to do, because some people consider this as a time waster, but, you need to do things on paper before you put them on actual work.
3) Chose a persuasive typography
Fonts do matter. You need to decide the font you want to use on your website. The typography you use on the website will decide how your customer will react with your website.
The engagement will depend upon the fonts you use. My friend who owns website design Auckland agency shares his experience that as soon as he changed the style of his fonts, he started getting more hits on the website.
“Got bored by the fonts I was using, so I changed them for a greater impact.” And that turned out great for my friend.
You can do the same. Try out fonts that are working for your brand.
Do the analytics, and see how people are engaging with your fonts.
And do the necessary changes.
4) Rethink the design
Sometimes, it is best to try new things. You cannot rely on the old stuff.
Same way, you need to decide how your design will affect the visitor. You can start with the beta design and see how people are engaging with the design.
If it goes well, stick to it. If not, try another design. There is no limit to how much you can try and do things.
5) Devil is in the details
They say the devil is in the details. And they are right. When going for website design for your website, you need to plan things in a way that everything goes as planned. Even if things don’t go as planned you need to plan everything in advance. Even the smallest details need to be in place. While website design seems like a simple thing it is a complex process of planning and hard work.
If you’re up for it, go for it. Even the simplest change in details might give you a boost.
To end it all
You need to design websites that are good for the end-user. You need to plan things in ways that can help the visitor find their problem and how your business can solve their problem.
