Your website has become one of the most essential tools to reach your business goals.
Whether you use it in generating leads to meet sales targets or to maintain good relationships with your existing customers, it starts with deciding how you want to build it.
Are you going to do it yourself or do you want to outsource it to a web design and development company?
“How do I choose a web development company?”
If you choose to outsource the development of your website, then you want to know the answer to this question as early as possible.
Why? Because the ability of your website to meet your goals is directly related to the company, agency, or developer that you choose to build your website.
In our opinion, these are the steps that you should take:
- Look for website design & development companies in google
- Visit the prospective company’s own website.
- Go and check their portfolios.
- Make sure that they make websites that are fast, mobile-friendly, have good SEO. These are some of the characteristics of a good business website.
- Contact them and set up a meeting.
Your chosen website design company should create websites that have these characteristics
If you want your website to become a tool that helps you achieve your business goals, then it needs to have these characteristics:
Your website is visible when someone that is searching for a product or a service that you sell is able to find your website at the top of the search engine results page.
Search engines like Google.
Your website can only achieve this visibility if it implements good SEO practices.
Your prospective customers (website visitors) want to see something as fast as possible.
They don’t want their precious time to get wasted in waiting for a webpage that is slow.
How fast should your website be? The ideal load time is 2 to 5 seconds.
However, each second beyond 2 seconds results in greater bounce rates. In fact, 40% of polled internet users report abandoning a site if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Moreover, 47% of users expect desktop sites to load in 2 seconds or less.
Mobile devices have overtaken desktop computers using the internet to search for products and services.
So it is expected that most of your website visitors will be on your website using a mobile device.
How would you feel if you are on a website that does not look good on your mobile screen? You are probably just going to leave that site right?
A website that is mobile-friendly implements responsive web design principles. Therefore making your web pages look good on any devices: mobile, tablet, laptops, or desktop computers.
Making sure your customer’s data is secured should be one of the top priorities of your website.
How you can achieve that? The most basic thing you can do is to protect your website with SSL.
Though it is important to remember that protecting your website with SSL is not the feature you can implement to your website.
Good user experience
You want your website to rank high on the search engine results page.
One way of achieving that is by providing optimal user experience.
Why? Because search engines like google know how long does your website visitors stay on your page.
The longer a user stays on your web page the more it is telling search engines that your content is relevant to your users.
And search engines like to present content that is relevant to their users’ intent.
The reason why you want to have a website for your business is primarily that you want to increase your profit. Right?
And increasing your profit can be done in two basic ways:
- Increasing your revenue. [Example here]
- Decreasing your cost. [Example here]
So as much as you want your website to generate sales as high as possible, you should also want to maintain your cost as low as possible.
You want your website to benefit your business more than it is costing your business.
Now you know the characteristics of a sales-driving website and how it helps you determine which website design and development agency should you choose.
