New Website Design

As you consider a new website design, it’s important to understand the most common pitfalls. First and foremost, if you immediately jump to the cheapest possible option, you’re going to have problems.

The Friends and Family Problem

If you decide to have a friend or family member build a website as a favor or on the cheap, we can almost guarantee you’ll regret it.  Some of the worst website problems come from “my nephew who’s in I.T., but got a full-time job and doesn’t have time anymore…”

Just because your friend or family member is more technical than you does not mean they understand how to create a website that will do you any good.  In fact, some of the ugliest, least user friendly websites are built by engineers who have no business designing a website. They understand only how to fulfill a wishlist of functions with no regard for aesthetic.

Check out our portfolio of clients’ sites.  Admittedly, some clients choose to cut corners and do their own thing, but you’ll quickly recognize which ones are committed to following our methodology for a truly memorable website.

Website Company

More than anything, we’re a website company. Our website development services include WordPress website design, WooCommerce, ecommerce development, website consultation and more. If you’re looking for examples, check out our portfolio.

Beware the DIY Website Builders

If it sounds too good to be true, it always is. Companies like GoDaddy, Wix and Weebly offer DIY website builder tools to “Build a website in under an hour!”

Just don’t. Please don’t. You’ll end up like so many of our clients pleading for help with a broken website they have no idea how to fix.

Here are just a few things to get right:

  1. Your domain name
  2. Photos and/or videos
  3. Competitive keywords you should use
  4. The kind of code being used
  5. Functions that should be included as part of the site to make your company more efficient
  6. Security
  7. Forms
  8. Colors
  9. How should the website make people feel?

If you want to sell online:

  1. Payment processing fees
  2. Payment processing software
  3. ECommerce technology
  4. Inventory management tied to online sales
