Website Design Options for Small Businesses

The prospect of finding someone to build your website can seem daunting. However, there are ways to simplify the process and still create a web design that showcases the best qualities of your business!

Hiring an experienced web designer takes the pressure off of you and guarantees a custom website that functions on a variety of devices. When you choose a website vendor to build your website, you will still have some homework to do if you’re going to reap the benefits of “doing it right” versus “getting it done”.

The website vendor you choose should have a vested interest in who you are and what you do. And this is BEFORE you have made a final decision or have spent any money.

Look for a website design firm who exhibits an understanding of what you need and offers clear cut solutions to meet those needs. They should be asking you questions and gathering information. If they can’t meet your needs, they should be making suggestions of where you might be better served.

If you want to build a website yourself, there are plenty of resources online that can provide you with the tools you need to get started. After all, nobody knows you better than you do. But please do your homework here as well. You can build it but will they come?

Building a Website Yourself

If you’ve decided to build your own website, here are some tips to get started and things to avoid!

There are a lot of factors to consider when building a website from scratch, such as choosing a domain name, deciding how to customize your website, and what content to include. Luckily, there are plenty of resources online that make the process easier, regardless of technical skill level. Most of them have varying features based on what your budget is, your knowledge of web design, and the amount of time you’re able to dedicate to your project.

Some available DIY website builders include:

There are countless other options to choose from depending on your preferences and budget. Most of these sites produce quick results and usually require minimal technical and design knowledge on your part. Most of these DIY website builders include web hosting meaning one less thing to worry about.

However, there are disadvantages that novices should be aware of when considering using web builders. For example, the webpage templates might look generic and not be accessible on all devices. This could prevent a potential customer from navigating your website easily and persuade them to opt for a competitor instead. Some DIY website builders have limited SEO options. Investigate and choose wisely.

A good tip for a designer is to know your targeted audience. What are customers looking for when they visit your website? What type of imagery embodies your company values and personality? What can I do to set myself apart from similar businesses a customer might encounter?
What problem does my website solve for my website visitors? Considering these questions will give you insight into your viewers expectations when they click on your website.

What are some things to avoid when designing a website?

As you go through the website building process, there are certain things you want to keep in mind to avoid driving your customers away.

Here are 4 common mistakes beginners make:

  1. Your webpage is too cluttered. ​Having too many elements on one page can be overwhelming and distract from the main focus of your business.
  2. You don’t have a clear call to action. ​Your viewers should immediately be informed of the purpose of your website and what you offer.
  3. Poor usability. ​A website that has a confusing layout and can’t be viewed on all devices could deter customers from returning.
  4. Not using Organic SEO. ​This can have a major impact on the visibility of your website in search engine results.
