Website Design, Creation and AdviceHow to Choose the Best Website Design for Your BusinessWhether your business has been established offline for years or whether it is a new business altogether, the design of your website must coincide with your overall brand image and sales goals.Evaluate the Purpose of your WebsiteThe first obstacle in determining your website design is to evaluate its purpose. If you are a retail business, you most likely will need a shopping cart feature. However, if you are a consulting firm, you may only want to list your contact information or an application for service. Evaluating the purpose of your website will help determine the features you need and those you can live without.Determine the Complexity of your SiteAgain, if your business sells many different kinds of widgets, then you will need a shopping cart. If your widgets are self-explanatory, (i.e. impulse items), then perhaps you simply need a page for each category of widget. The page can list each item, a short description, and a link to add it to the customer’s shopping cart.However, if your business is selling widgets which need more explanation, perhaps bigger ticket items, then you might need a single page for each widget. You may even need several pages for each widget’s specifications.If your business is informational services, for example consulting, then perhaps your site can remain fairly simple. There is no need for a shopping cart of hundreds of pages showcasing each item. You may have a few different consulting packages, information on each, a sales letter, a contact us page, and about us page, and a home page. Perhaps a testimonial page for added persuasion. Although it may contain a significant amount of text, this would be a fairly simple website design compared to other businesses.ContentsHow to Choose the Best Website Design for Your Business ....................................................................... 3What’s in a Domain Suffix ........................................................................................................................... 4Website Design Terminology ...................................................................................................................... 5CSS Explained ............................................................................................................................................. 6Website Designs with Staying Power .......................................................................................................... 7How Can I Build my Website for Free ......................................................................................................... 8Six Steps to Website Design for Beginners .................................................................................................. 9Dreamweaver or CoffeeCup for Website Design ...................................................................................... 11Using Dreamweaver to Create your Site Layout ....................................................................................... 11Three Crucial Steps to Creating Your Website .......................................................................................... 12Dos and Don’ts of Website Creation ......................................................................................................... 13SEO Basics for Effective Website Design ................................................................................................... 14Ideas for Your Internet Business Website Design ..................................................................................... 15Immediately Applicable Design Tips for a User-Friendly Website ............................................................. 166 Reasons to Create a Website ................................................................................................................. 18Common Website Design Mistakes .......................................................................................................... 19Too Much or Too Little............................................................................................................................. 20Why Successful Website Development Does Not Stop at Design ............................................................. 21Ideas for Your Personal Website Design ................................................................................................... 22How to Create a Social Networking Website to Enhance your Business ................................................... 22Tips for Designing an Affiliate Website ..................................................................................................... 23How to Use Wordpress for your Website ..
