There are several things to consider when designing a website. First, a clear idea of the objective of your website is important. You have to know what you want to do, to be able to implement your ideas. Secondly, you need to know what your customers are going to want out of your website. This can be done through market research. You may also need help to build the website. Hiring someone having experience as well as who is willing to help without charging you an arm and leg. Decide a design for your website before it's published! But remember doing all of this is not going to happen overnight! It will take time before you will see results.

Key Takeaways:

  • Choose the correct venue from which to build your website. You're going to spend a lot of time on building your site. Put it in the correct place.
  • How will your customers find you? Know your market, who does it entail? What keywords will they use to search for your site?
  • Ask for help when you need it. Building a webpage is not an easy task. Ask for help and then test it before you launch it. This will help you to find your glitches prior to its release.
