Define a purpose

Before you jump into building a website, you need to consider its purpose. Will it be something simple like a blog, or a little more complex? The purpose of your website will have a huge impact on the design, coding, and costs associated with the build, so make sure you understand what you need the site to do for you. We will adhere to any requests as long as they’re defined properly!

Got it? Great. Once you know what you’re looking for, you can start thinking about the framework, look, and execution needed to make the website a reality.

Consider your audience

Even though the internet is pretty much an open platform, you still need to think about the user you want to attract. The user sitting on the other end is arguably the biggest influence on your website. A simple, content-rich experience might be the best approach.

By combining your audience and purpose, you will get to a point where you can start laying out the foundations of your build.

Choose a template

When the internet revolution first started, the coding and programming process, even for basic websites, could take weeks.

Thankfully, that has all changed. As modern operating systems and hardware have developed, so has the art of coding. If you’re looking to get a website live quickly, then choosing a pre-built website template is the best place to start. We will provide you with rough drafts of templates, and adhere to which vision best suits your business!

There are thousands of website templates out there, each with different visual and functional structures. Spend some time looking for templates that match your website’s purpose – and don’t forget to keep your target market in mind.

Populate the template

For most people, website content is where the fun starts. From video and audio recordings to simple imagery and copy, creating great content is essential.

Depending on what you’re trying to achieve, content creation might be the slowest part of the process – especially if you want things to be just right. To save time, start writing and collecting content before you start building. Having content ready as well as ideas makes our process easier, and takes off time in how long the site will take to go live!

In most cases, populating the template is as simple as dragging and dropping it into the chosen content modules. With a decent internet connection, this won’t take long at all.

Invest in hosting

While your content is being produced and uploaded, you need to think about affordable website hosting.  Despite the fact that they’re all selling the same product, you have lots of hosting options. Select an offering that will get you the domain name, visibility, and reach that you’re looking for.

Make sure you consider the lifespan of your website when searching for a hosting partner. In some cases, like with events, you may only want the site live for a few months.

Also, be prepared for compromise. In many cases, your first choice URL will not be available so save yourself a lot of time by coming up with options instead of engaging in a domain name bidding war.
