How to Build a Simple Startup Website?
You have an idea that you are excited about. You are all set to take off your first steps into the startup world. You want a stunning website to showcase your offerings. Where do you begin? At Web Design Nantwich, we believe that a website is your window to the world. That’s why it’s important to get it right the first time. Here’s a quick guide to help you build a simple start up website.
Choose a Platform
Even before you begin to think about the design, layout or the domain name, it’s crucial to choose a platform to build your site on. What do we mean by platform? It refers to a content management system that helps in managing your website.
The 3 most popular CMS platforms are WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. At Web Design Nantwich, we recommend WordPress for all our clients given its flexibility, user friendly interface and most of all cost effectiveness.
Choose a Domain Name
Your start up’s domain name will play a crucial role in your branding efforts. That’s why it’s crucial to choose your domain name with care. Choose a domain name that’s brandable, easy to memorise and catchy.
Decide What You Want
It’s now time to decide what features you want on your website. You might be looking for a simple start up website, yet you need to be sure what exactly it is that you need. Do you need a custom booking system? Do you want cool, slick graphics? Do you want a newsletter sign up form? Should your website feature stock photos or do you want to invest in custom photography?
Perhaps you can begin by looking at some of your competitors’ websites. If your startup does not have a competitor yet, look at websites of other starts ups in a similar category or any other industry. This competitor analysis will help you understand your needs better.
Prepare a Web Design Brief
Prepare a website design brief outlining your requirements. The clearer you are in outlining your requirements, the better it is for you. A clearly outlined web design brief will give your web design Nantwich agency a clear outline of your requirements so they can come up with an appropriate plan and quote for you.
Choose a Professional Web Design Nantwich Agency
