5 Things to Consider When Planning Your Web Design

Getting a website is a huge decision. It’s an investment that will see you putting in a lot of your time, energy and money. So it’s best to prepare for your investment rather than take it as it comes.

Here are 5 things you must consider before you contact a web design agency in Geelong.

Identify Your Goal

Do you know what exactly you want your website to do? Do you know who your target customers are? Do you know what their pain points are? Are you going to sell online, generate leads or generate appointments through your website?

Be sure to answer questions such as these before you discuss aspects of website design with your web design agency.

Get All The Essential Information Ready

“How long will it take to build my website?”

Our Geelong web designers get this question almost every time during the initial consultation with clients. Some clients they are surprised at the mention of average build time it can take to for the web design process.

In fact, more often than not, the “wait time” we see when creating a website is often caused by the clients’ inaction – not sending images, not sending information, not signing off the different stages of the project, etc.

You can reduce most of the wait time by taking having all the pictures, content and other essentials ready before your initial consultation with Pixelfire web design agency in Geelong.

Know Your Budget

The scope of your web design project will, to a great extent, depends on the size of your budget. You could build a website for next to nothing or spend thousands of dollars. However, you get what you pay for.

It can be difficult to define the ROI for a website. Similarly, the credibility and trust that a professionally built website bestows on your brand can’t be evaluated in monetary terms.

But you can certainly measure things like the number of visitors received and leads generated, which can help estimate the success of your website.

When done right, your website can open doors of untapped opportunities that you never knew existed. So be sure to set aside a sizeable budget when investing in a professional business website.

Your Company’s USP

It’s important you know exactly what makes your company stand out from the competition.

A generic answer such as “good customer service” or “high-quality products” won’t just cut it. Your customers expect this anyway. So you must dig really deep to unravel your unique selling points.

Knowing your USP’s will also help your web designer to build a truly custom website that represents your brand and delivers the results you seek.
