This can be a deal breaker for your business vision if you price yourself out of the budget for design. If you have expectations of custom work, complex coding to alter the functionality and user experience make sure you’ve allocated the funds for that wow factor kind of work. A well designed website can position your business to attract more clients. Ask yourself what kind of investment you are committed to make.

Your logo, color scheme, appearance, tagline, and overall appeal you hope to create give it some thought. A website developer can help create any atmosphere for your visitors so it’s important to have some branding standards so they can remain consistent in the design process.
*bonus tip: The need to have a business plan as you shape what you’re introducing to the market, from the objective/mission statement to identifying your target audience.

You can never have enough! Be organized and ready to fill your website. What are you communicating to your visitors? There are a variety of ways to display it: videos, sound bites, infographics, and more. The main purpose of your website is to inform visitors about your company and encourage them to become a client/customer. Step into the consumers shoes for a moment and think of the content you would seek out in relation to your business. Make sure it’s up to date, modern and engaging.
