Top 5 Tips for People That are New to Website Building
1. Choosing the Right Domain

Regardless if you choose .com, .net, or .biz, it is extremely important at this point to pick
a name that matches your business and has relevant keywords. It will be a lot easier to
rank a domain than it will be to get anyone to find on the web. Think long-term too, because this domain name will
be something connected to the business for years, get it right now so potential
customers can quickly associate the two.

2. Planning the Website

Think in terms of your potential buyers needs. Will you be selling a product, will you be
providing information, or will you build a website that encourages interaction between
the guests? Choose the right design platform carefully and utilize a template that will
enhance the customer experience. One thing to consider here too is consistency. If you
have a logo and color theme already in use at your brick-and- mortar store or on your
business stationary, make sure to use them throughout the website design to tie
everything together and strengthen your brand.

3. Outline the Website Content

Don't make the mistake of rushing to get your website online without having a clear
outline in place. Regardless the platform, the website is going to need the basic
components like an eye-catching homepage, information about-us page, relevant
products or services page(s), and an easy to find page that has all of your contact

4. The Importance of a Navigation Bar

There are thousands of newly listed websites that do not make use of a navigation bar,
making it challenging for any visitor to quickly find the content they need. The sad truth
is you have less than five seconds to convince a visitor to stay on your website, and
without a navigation bar, you make it easy for them to hit the back button and disappear
forever. Create an informative navigation bar that gets the visitor to the content in the
least possible clicks.
