Business Website Needs

When you need to design a website, there are a few things that need to be on the site every single time. There are essentials that will allow you to do business in the most effective way possible. Your website needs to have the basic elements of user friendliness and have the inspiration for them to do business with your company. The following is a list of a few of these essentials that will make your website the place to be and buy!

First, you need a description of who you are and what you are about. When people are wandering around the internet and they find your site, the first thing they want to know is who you are. They don’t want to have to work hard to get that information. Googling a site to get information about that site is a waste of time and the viewer will just move on. You will need to precisely display your name and then give an overview of your company, your products and your services. This should be on your home page, the front page the first page they go to. You want to tell people right from the start all about your story. A great description will attract people to the site and keep them there to explore your other pages. The longer they linger, the more likely they will do business.

You will need a simple and logical web address. The domain name will be used on all of your communications from letters to business cards. It needs to be sensible. The domain name is your brand online. It should be created to be easily found. You want a user to simply put your company name into the browser and find your business. Use your company name with dot com since that is the most popular address and people are used to it. Avoid using dashes in your web address as it makes problems for search engine optimization (SEO). Numbers can be confusing also.
