Good web design gives your site credibility. It shows that you value your visitors enough to invest in its development. You won't earn their trust unless they feel that your site is a serious undertaking with a long-term future.
I aim to combine technical proficiency with creativity to create something extraordinary. Websites make businesses, so should be planned as per your business objectives and meet your customer's expectations. So, I design websites that 'attract' yet 'sell' also. Good clean design is important. Good clean functionality and an easy and productive user experience will turn visits into customers.
There is an extensive requirement analysis before initiating any web design project, so that you get what you desired, I deliver a web design service that will be an industry example and out do your competitors.
A professional-looking site will probably be your only chance to make a good impression. I feel that the main factors are:
Your website needs to be fast to be effective. The web is frustratingly slow at times. I design sites for maximum effect with minimum waiting. If your site doesn't appear on screen fast enough, your competitors are just a click away. I don't forget that for a moment.
Ease of use:
Sites can have may different structures and sizes, but all are well organised, and easily navigated. Clean design focuses the users attention on the subject matter rather than confusing them - a confused user won't stick around for long.
Good design establishes an environment which is logical and does not confuse the visitor. It should be very easy they find it to navigate your website.
A fast, well designed website is a good start. Next you need to think about what it will do. A well-designed brochure is a great starting point for a website. But you can do better than that. The internet has the potential to be a fundamental part of your organisation - not just an advertisement for it.
Intelligent response handling:
The simplest enquiry form helps to make your website interactive. If nothing else, people expect to be able to contact you through your site. Behind the scenes, my response handling code can process enquiries in all kinds of ways, automatically.
A searchable database allows information to be found quickly and easily. And by putting it on your website, it can be made available to the world. If the information is valuable insider data then you can even make money out of it. You can also add news items and events to data driven areas of your website keeping your customers up to date with what's happening within your company.
Another way to liven up your message is to turn it into a game: a quiz, or a competition for example, is a perfect way to combine the business of promoting the product with the pleasure of testing your wits against a web page. On-line polls can gauge customer awareness, perceptions and needs as well as providing an interesting diversion whilst on your site. I can also provide customised chat rooms, forums and message boards.
If your business or organisation needs to update it's website then I can provide low cost content management.
Almost is anything is possible now with the technology available to developers like myself. If you have an idea for a web site or online resource or just want to talk about the reality of making it happen I would love to hear from you.
