Posted on April 10, 2018

Planning for Affordable Web Design

When it comes to having a successful website there are several key factors. One of the most important is your design. In other words, looks matter. An attractive, eye-catching web design will help draw visitors in and keep them coming back. There are literally thousands of choices of web designs, so it’s important to choose the right one for your business. However, there are also thousands of different budgets. If you happen to be on a tight budget then your choices are more limited. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get an attractive and effective design.

What’s your Purpose?

In order to create quality website with an attractive design on a budget you have to do some planning. This requires several steps, the first of which is determining the purpose of your site. Every site has some purpose. No matter what your purpose is, you need to know it and how you plan to achieve it. Therefore, you will need to determine if your site will try to drive local sales, if you’re trying to build a brand, or if you’re trying to sell products or services. Whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish you must define your purpose.

DIY or Get Professional Help

Once you have your purpose, it’s time to start designing. There are so many different options and these days building your own appears to be much easier than in days past. However, even with all the plug-ins, free themes and customization helps available, it can still be very difficult and time-consuming to build a website. Even if you can figure things out without professional help, chances are it will take much longer for you to do it right and there will be hiccups along the way. In most cases, it’s best to hire professional help, even if you’re on a budget.

Keep it Organized

The next step in creating a quality website on a budget is to organize your website the right way. You hierarchy and your menus need to work and you need to keep them simple. Make sure navigation makes sense and is also easy to use. Keep these things in mind:

  • Keep it as simple as possible
  • Make fonts easy to read
  • Don’t overdo the color schemes
  • Always include a search option
  • Don’t overdo graphics
  • Add internal links in the right places
