The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a huge shift in how businesses grow a customer base and make profit, so we have to adapt to these changes in order to be successful. If you are looking to shift your business from in-person to online, but aren’t sure how to go about it, we here at Cyrux Smart Solutions have some web design advice that can help.
Create A Site
This is the most important first step to take, as it creates the foundation for all other online advertising aspects. When you have a main website, you can include all of your services, photos, information and more in a highly organized and detailed manner. The most common website management system people tend to use is WordPress, as it is highly reputable and provides customers with a wide range of customizable features. You will also need a site domain (essentially your website URL), and the typical domain will usually cost 8-15 dollars a year depending on the company you choose to go with.
Once your domain is purchased successfully, you can now look for a web hosting company. This will act as a server for your site to operate on, so make sure you choose a provider carefully and do your research. You want to make sure that you choose a company with ample customer support, and high speed services to maintain an easy to use interface for site visitors.
Start Planning Your Sites Design
This is the fun part, because now you can begin to map out how you want your business website to look. You want to make sure you are covering all of the bases so that your site visitors can become interested in what your company has to offer. Make sure you include anything that is needed, including but not limited to:
- About Us page
- Contact Us page
- Blog Page
- Directory Page
A lot of site building companies will provide you with easy to use site builders, so you can spend less time coding and more time customizing your site the way you want. Use different widgets and visuals to keep your site visitors staying on your site for longer. Make sure to choose colours that pop/match your brand, so they can pull the viewer in. At the end of the day, you want to do what feels best for your business. If you need inspiration and are looking for some ideas, try researching local businesses in your area and see what their websites provide.
Write The Content Needed For Your Site
Visuals are fun to plan out, but the written component is just as, if not more important. This will be what makes the site visitor stay or go, because it is considered your main selling point. Be sure to write content for your homepage, about us page and contact us page. Show site visitors what makes your business stand out from the rest and provide people with the benefits they will receive from working with your company. Make sure to include any experience or education your team has, or any important information about the products you sell that make them stand out from the others.
