Checklist to consult with Business Website Designer
Consulting a professional web designer will give you a clear picture of what website you need for business. Web design consultation gives the roadmap as guidance about how to proceed in order to benefit your business from online identity. Business web design consultation service works like a personal guide which you can benefit from in many ways.
Every business operates in a specific niche and targets audience in specific demography. Do consult a website design professional on the target niche and demography of your business to get an idea of how those will be reflected on the user interface of the proposed website. The cultural influence of the target demography should have a bearing on the interface of your upcoming website. Otherwise, the prospects from that demography won’t be able to connect with it.
A business website’s user experience depends on the harmony of interface design and the cultural traits of target audience from specific demography. Make sure to ask the designer to add the demography and prospects to his checklist for website design. With the checklist at hand, he would be able to deliver a website with promising look and feel. Once the connection between the user interface and the demography is established in the website, your business will be able to generate leads.
Do share with the designer who your competitors are in niche during consultation. It not only helps the designer but is crucial for your upcoming website from business point of view. The existing websites of the competitors will make the web designer understand your business niche and target market a lot better. Your requirements will be clearer to him. He can better measure the standards of a niche-specific business website by doing some homework on your competitors. Competition research and analysis is part of professional website design.
Do share your online marketing strategies with the website designer. Not the entire marketing plan including social media. If I am right, you would like to market your business through newsletter subscription, online email capture form, free e-book downloading, etc. If so, the designer will make sure to integrate all these features into the user interface of the website. With these requirements on the checklist, the designer will be able to model the website design accordingly. If you state any of these requirements once the website is designed, it may cost you for redesign later on.
Usually business websites have a few landing pages among the general service / product pages. If you want to have the upcoming website integrated a few landing pages, make sure to explain the purpose of the landing pages to the designer so that he can design them with marked difference from the other pages. It is because landing pages are special pages with evocative calls to action, which require keen attention to some specifications.
