Excellent website design considers the goals, layout design, images, colors, photos, and programming skills of a site. Today we will be looking at:
1. Collecting Information
The first step for any successful website design and development is collecting information such as:
What are the goals or purpose of the website?
Who is the target demographic?
Who is in charge of the content, images, and copyright information?
The next step is planning. Preparation is the first step before starting the design of the website, which includes:
A final analysis of all collected information, project chart, and creating a sitemap for all the pages and their relationship
Defining the type of software which will be implemented
A detailed database
A website’s design process begins with a detailed blueprint, which is the foundation of the website’s content. After our clients review and approve of the site’s plan, we jump to the next step.
At this stage, website development begins. After defining the framework, we analyze and test the website’s content thoroughly for any errors. After final testing for functionality and making sure the links work, the testing site is ready for pre-launch.
5. Website Launch
In this step, we run final testing across browsers, upload the website to a live server, and check for functionality once again.
6. After Launch
At this point, the website should have full functionality, and all documentation should be available. This is the final step of the project.
Many clients require support for their website, which includes hosting and adding content or images down the line.

Do not make your website design overly complicated.
Although it may be tempting to add a lot of crazy features, if you are a small business owner, many of the people visiting your website will want to find clear and concise information; they do not want to spend a long time searching for it.
While big businesses can afford to redesign their website to keep it up-to-date regularly, smaller businesses usually do not have the budget to redesign their websites regularly. A clean, simple, and straightforward design is timeless.
Every section of your website should be clearly labeled to prevent any confusing or misguiding information. Make sure your website navigation is clear for the users. Label sections (such as “Services,” “Contact Us,” “About Us,” and “Products“) will help website users to navigate.
Make sure that all of your contact information such as your business address, hours of operation, email, and social media channels are updated.
These will help your customers or fans connect with you and increase your web presence.
If you are planning on using bright and eye-catching colors in the website design, make sure that any text on the website is still visible. Website users do not want to strain their eyes, attempting to read the information they are trying to find.
As more and more people are surfing the internet on mobile phones and handheld tablets, websites should be responsive (mobile friendly).
You need to work with a website usability expert during the process of website development. A website usability expert that can analyze your website to see whether it is stylish, functional, and appropriate for use by the general public.
