Website design and development | How to create a website

Your step-by-step guide to website design and development

In today’s digital age, it’s almost impossible for businesses not to have their own website. In fact, even some non-business owners create their own website design to showcase resumes and portfolios. Company websites are very important because they are the first point of contact that consumers have with companies when looking for more information.

From website aesthetics to content and user experience, everything has to do with how consumers perceive your brand and the associations formed with it. Without a doubt, first impressions count. 38.5% of users[1] judge a business by how their website looks at first glance. However, designing and developing your own website without experience can be a daunting task. Therefore, in this article, we provide a step-by-step guide to walk you through your website building journey.

• Step 1: Identify the objective
Before even thinking about web design[2] and technical details, start with the purpose of your website. The purpose of your website influences the design and the different elements involved. Why are you creating this website? Who is the target audience? What are you trying to achieve by having this website? Being able to answer these questions will give you a rough idea of ​​how your website will look and work.

• Step 2: Define the scope
With a better understanding of your website goals, the reach of your website comes next. This involves thinking about the web pages and features your website needs to best serve its purpose. It’s also best to set a schedule to keep you on track and minimize delays.

• Step 3: Create the sitemap and wireframe
Then, creating your sitemap and wireframe gives you a more concrete visualization of the website design, the different web pages, and what each web page will contain. For professional web designers, sitemaps and wireframes allow for a more seamless process between them and their clients. They allow clients to preview the various attributes and elements that will be incorporated before the designer executes them. Without the sitemap and wireframe, there is the risk that the web design result will end up differently than you expected and not fulfill the desired purpose. Think of sitemaps and wireframes as the skeleton that will eventually hold everything together.

Step 4: Content creation
Now that your sitemap and wireframe have been finalized, it’s time to organize the content. Look at each page individually and think about what you want people to know when they land on each page. When it comes to content creation, it’s also best to keep search engine optimization (SEO) elements in mind. Quality content paired with the right keywords can help your website rank well on search engine results pages (SERPs). Your content is what helps boost your digital marketing efforts.

• Step 5: Design, aesthetics and user experience
The design and aesthetics are perhaps the most enjoyable part for many. After all, humans are visual creatures. For companies, brand image is a priority. Make sure your website design reflects your brand image, from the colors to the layout used. Website builders can be a useful tool for beginners. It allows users to design, customize and publish a website without coding knowledge.

However, while website builders can make the website building process easier, the templates available may not reflect your brand or align with the sitemap and wireframe you created. In this case, it is better to hire the services of an experienced web design and development company.[3] to meet all your needs. They can also help you create a good user experience, which is also essential for creating a good brand image.

• Step 6: Testing
With the content and design all encapsulated in your wireframe, now you need to check if it works when users visit your website. Leverage automated site crawlers and crawl your website across different devices to ensure it has no issues, including broken links, slow load times, and mobile incompatibility.

• Step 7: Launch!
Once you have checked that everything is in order, you can launch your website! Ideally, your launch date should be consistent with your timeline plan in Step 2.

Creating and developing a website requires a lot of planning and strategizing. Still, the benefits are plentiful, from boosting your brand to driving conversions. Ultimately, given the technicalities involved, it may be best to hire a web design and development company to help you, especially if you’re new.
