You need a service of web development but you are not so much into it?
-Dont worry, we will help.
A large number of people who find themselves in a situation where they need a website experience the fear of the unknown and want to give up the idea because they think that designing a site carries with them “a lot of complicated elements and questions” to which they have no answer or time to they deal with this in addition to their core business.
However, this is not the case in reality. It’s very simple. All you have to do is walk you through that famous process called „Site Design“. That is why in this article I want to explain in detail what you need to know if you decide to create a new site and what are the most common questions that you should know the answer to when presenting your requirements to the developer.
what do you need to know if you need website?
The concepts you should focus on are: the type or technology in which the website will operate, the functionality you want your website to have and the design (layout) of the site itself. Also, what you need to keep in mind is that you need to lease a server and domain to run the site yourself, but more on that soon.
type of the website and technology
There are different types of sites, so you need to know what type of site you need. The most common types of sites are: presentation (by which you can introduce yourself to clients, introduce your company and business, but also allow them to easily contact you and find you),
Online Stores (this is the perfect solution to expand your sales to the online dimension as well, allowing site visitors to easily search, order and buy your products – read more here). In addition to the two types mentioned, there are others such as: social networks, forums, custom web applications and the like.
When it comes to technology, first of all, we’re talking about the backend of the site, which is how you can use and maintain the website yourself. Website development in WordPress technology is the most common and very easy to maintain, but for some more complicated applications, the ideal solution is to use pure PhP with some framework such as. Laravel.
Before designing your site itself, you should have a rough picture of what functionality you want your new website to have. Functionalities certainly depend on the type of site, the type of your business and your needs, but I will present some common functionalities that sites have. These can be Sliders and Galleries with high quality images, Blog (where you can easily write and share news and interesting texts), various systems of „booking“ – ordering (products, food), reservations (apartments, vehicles, treatments or reviews, movie theaters , restaurant table), an online store system with ordering and payment integration, and more. Also common functionality that is important to our clients is multilingualism – that is, the ability to choose between multiple languages.
The last important item is the frontend (layout) itself and the design of your site. There are two important questions about the layout of the site.
The first is whether you have specific requirements regarding the design itself. Do you look like the layout of the elements is an important factor or not? If you have special requirements in this part – we suggest a web design service where some of our designers will project you the future layout of the site (all according to your idea and requirements) and after that our developer will create a site that will 1: 1 follow the said design. Otherwise, you can just give a few general directions (eg I want a white site with a blue header) and leave our creative developers free to surprise you. Also useful and helpful in situations like this is to give us an example of a site you like.
The second question is very simple and relates to whether or not you already own your logo? Namely, every site must have its own logo. Something that is recognizable and something that visitors to your site will remember well. We are proud to say that we have over 10 successful and experienced graphic designers in the team who do their job very well, and you can see some of their latest achievements here.
Another thing we want to mention is that you need to lease a domain and server to run your site. A domain is the url your visitors will type to get to your website (www.something.com or com), and the server is the space where your new site will be hosted. You can lease your domain with any internet provider in the country or abroad, and our company provides server rental service.
Congratulations! You have successfully passed all the essentials with us, and we are sure to learn a lot from you.
Designing a site now will not be a problem for you and something to get away from as you now know all the information you need to give the developer who will work your future site.
So your instructions to the developer can look like this:
„I need a presentation site for my company, which will have an integrated Blog and Gallery. The site is required to be in Serbian and English. I want a website design service, and I already have a logo. „
This is more than concrete information that is sufficient for us to put together an offer. All you have to do is contact us.
