Three things you need to know before getting YOUR website

Creating a website is easier these days, but things won’t work properly if you don’t have an idea about your business, or what the site needs. There are important things to consider before starting a website, and it’s a good idea to understand them carefully. Listed below are the three most important things you need to know before embarking on a website design project.

  1. What is the point of my Website?

This is absolutely the first thing you need to know. This is the first question you need to ask yourself? Is there an actual point or need for the website I am about to splash out cash for? What is the site being designed to do? What would you like to get out of it? What is it’s very reason for existing to begin with? If you don’t understand it, then there is really no way that you can get a good website designed, as it will be aimless right from the outset. Don’t just build a website for the sake of having one, build something that will increase your brand awareness, generate leads, increase sales or spread your message exponentially.

  1. What content do I need?

You should also have an understanding of the various contents that are going to appear on your website. This makes it easier to create the overall structure leading to a site that flows far more easily than it otherwise would have done. Think about your goals and the information you want to provide to visitors like your product details, branding ideals, etc, Things like video introductions, educational contents and even contents like your mission or your unique selling point should also be considered. Begin to formulate how that relates to each individual page.

  1. Is my site going to be secure?

Think about security. There are lots of spammers and hackers out there and you should protect your site before even launching it. Make sure to scan it every day or update it regularly, if you used a content management system to build it. I have seen many people use wordpress to build their site and left it the same way it was for years without even an update of the core wordpress CMS. that’s wrong. You also have to be careful about plugins or tools that you add to your site, verify their source, and scan them before the upload process. You don’t know how they can affect your website, and it’s better to verify things first.

Security is important. If you want to start a commercial website, you should secure the connection and use an SSL service. Lots of hosting companies add that feature to their hosting package. Don’t think that your business is small and so scammers may not pick interest. We used to think that way before till we got hacked and lost money. A simple phished link or DDoS attack from a hacker can change all your payment links and divert your funds or get the details of all your customers from your database and scam them. So be alert. Be paranoid with your security.

These are the most important things to know, before creating any website. They can help you to avoid issues and succeed in your business easily. I hope it helps. If you need details about building a secure money making site or help with answering any of the questions above. Do Leave us a message.
