When you are designing a new website, it is easy not to look beyond the end of your nose. You probably know that your site needs to be mobile responsive. You’re definitely aware that it needs to look great, show off your product and attract your ideal customer.
Web design for now
It is possible to buy your website off the hook. It will work, you can load your pictures onto it and it will look fairly professional. It is also possible to spend thousands of pounds to get a website that is all singing, all dancing.
But neither option is really that practical. What are you saying by having a website that is just the same as everyone else’s? That you’re not successful enough to be able to afford a decent site? Or that you’re not willing to spend the money on giving your customer a great experience?
Using a local designer might eliminate these problems. For example, web design in Milton Keynes can be provided by a local company such as Big Media House. Because they’re local, you can meet with them, sit in their office or a local shop and chat through your needs.
But it’s not always your needs that are the most important, but those of your customer. For example, according to the Guardian many disabled adults still struggle with the internet. So why not be a ground-breaker and be the one to design your website with disabled people in mind? Find out what is difficult and make it easier. You could even provide free lessons on internet use for local disabled groups and explain to them how you have made your site more accessible.
Web design for the future
The thing about the internet is that it is always changing, in a big way. In fact, as the Financial Times point out, even the large news companies are fighting for their survival in the current climate.
That’s why it’s important when designing a website to be adaptable. You need to be responsive not only to the devices of today, but to the changes that the future will bring. It never makes good business sense to be left behind. This is a discussion to have now to save an expensive website revamp in the next couple of years.
