1. Deciding on the design. Before anything is built, we will discuss exactly what you want your website to look like. I welcome any examples of other websites you like so I can try and reproduce their design elements. I will, of course, be upfront if your ideas are not practical or would not work. There are limitations in website design, and for good reason: extreme ideas may or may not function properly.
2. Deciding which elements to use. We need to look at:
- Style and colour
- Width and background
- Banner design
- Navigation contents and position
- Sidebar contents, imagery and functions
- Number of pages, including home page
- To have a blog page or not?
- Which plugins to upload, which depend on:
- Other digital marketing functions and requirements
3. Deciding on the contents. You can easily extend your website as your business grows, but it’s a good idea to have your page contents written in advance, which will in turn affect your navigational links. Be aware of how your website flows and the journey your visitor will experience, to guide him where you want him to go and encourage him to perform the right actions.
4. Deciding on extra-curricular functions. There are so many plugins, applications and external compatible functions available to fit onto your WordPress.org website. These will depend on which stage you are with your digital marketing requirements or what you want to achieve. We can discuss what is available and how it can help you and your business.
