Web Development – Planning is Vital for Success

By Daljeet Sidhu

Every business wants to showcase itself on the web. Website development is a tedious process that tends to prove stressful at times. Below are some tips to get web development projects finished on time and within a planned budget. To know about tips that could prove valuable in development of new website as well as up-gradation of an existing one, read on.

Meticulous Groundwork

An in depth groundwork is a prerequisite for successful website development. Critical decisions include the number of pages that the website should have, or what should the graphics look like, etc should be taken beforehand.

These decisions can be classified into two types. Those that include issues relevant to the users and the ones that include matters associated to the company whose site is to be designed.

The user related decisions include the identification of the target users, ways to make them aware about the site, their areas of interest, the kind of content that would drive them to the site on a regular basis, ways to make them interact with the site and so on.

Decisions related to the company include the purpose of the website, whether it is to educate the user or to sell something, to entertain or to offer services; the source of the website’s content, how frequently would the site be updated, and the yardsticks for measuring its performance.

A successful website development project must include the above mentioned tips during its initial stages. These prove to be immensely useful during the later parts of the project. Based on this, the developers may devise further strategies that may include introduction of interactive formats on the website such as live chats, blogs, forums, videos, animation, registration forms or database interfaces.

Customized Web Design Templates

Most web designing companies generally offer attractive web templates. These can be used on an as-it-is basis in creating affordable websites quickly and easily. If they choose, the clients are able to pick the basic website design along with modest modifications that might include font sizes, color schemes, etc. However, these templates offer low flexibility with only a slight scope for modification. Quite often company logos, photos and other graphics are subjected to ratio considerations.

These templates however, are of great help to amateur designers due to their easy-to-use modules and guide them step by step. But for more sophisticated project, it is highly recommended to invest in custom web design for better results.

Custom web designs provide way more opportunities to website developers than template designs. Designers who are well versed with these find it easier to unleash their potential while at the same time, keeping into consideration the all-round requirements of the clients. The website should be able to cater to the basic purpose of its creation. In order to increase traffic to the site, it should be simple, user-friendly and appealing.

A Perfect Blend of Attractiveness and Ease of Use

A website must be easy to use and attractive in terms of both, designs and technology. For this purpose, skills of talented web designers must be sought during its creation or up gradation. A website must be pleasing to look at, easy to use and must have the necessary keywords and meta tags for optimization for search engines. A proper agglomeration of beauty, ease of use and search engine optimization is a prerequisite for an effective website.
