Designing a website involves several steps that need to be followed systematically to create a functionally effective and appealing website.  This is Technotions’ typical process.

Step 1:

To get started, we need to define your site goals.  What is the primary purpose of your website? Setting goals will help you determine the type of website you need and the features it should have.

Step 2:

The domain name is the address that people will use to access your website. We’ll need to choose a domain name that is easy to remember, relevant to your business, and available for registration.

Step 3:

Web hosting is the service that allows you to publish your website on the internet. We can provide a few hosts that are reliable and affordable web hosting providers that will meet your needs.

Step 4:

Designing the site.  The design of your website should be visually appealing, easy to navigate, and aligned with your brand image.

Step 5:

We need to determine overall site functionality, in other words, what features your website needs to have. Will you need an online store, a contact form, a blog, or other specific needs?

Step 6:

Build the site with your design and functionality in mind. We’ll create a wireframe for the site that provides you with an exact design for the home page and all related inner pages.

Step 7:

Finally, we’ll add content to your website. We’ll create pages about your business, products or services, and contact details. If you plan to have a blog, we’ll help you create blog posts.  Very importantly, these will provide value to your readers and help establish you as an expert in your industry.

We believe setting clear goals for your WordPress website is essential to ensure it effectively achieves its purpose. Your website’s goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART).

For example,  your website goals may include increasing traffic and generating leads. Additionally, you may to  improve user engagement, or establish brand authority.  We’ll work with you to define these goals and ensure that your site meets or exceeds these goals.

Choosing the right domain name is vital for your website’s branding, visibility, and search engine optimization (SEO). When determining your domain name, consider a name that is short and memorable. Also easy to spell, pronounce, and relevant to your business or niche.

We’ll help you choose a domain extension that best suits your website’s purpose, such as .com, .org, or any of the multitude of domain name extensions available.  Also, it’s essential to make sure that your domain name is unique and doesn’t infringe on any trademarks or copyrights.

Web hosting is essential for making your website available on the internet, allowing people to access it from anywhere in the world. The quality of your web hosting service can impact the speed and performance of your website, which can affect user experience and search engine rankings. Additionally, a reliable web hosting service ensures that your website is always up and running. We’ll guide you through this entire process.

We’ll help you select a host that has plans that allow for scalability. And that will make it easy to upgrade and expand as your online presence grows.

Website design is critical in attracting and retaining visitors, as it creates the first impression of your brand and communicates its values and message. We’ll design a website that will provide a positive user experience. While also making it easier for visitors to navigate, find information, and take the desired actions.

In particular, the design of your website can also impact its search engine optimization (SEO).  Very importantly, search engines prioritize websites that are easy to use, visually appealing, and mobile-friendly.

Website functionality can include e-commerce, user registration, content management, or providing relevant content. Naturally, a well-functioning website can improve user experience, making it easier for visitors to interact with your site and achieve their goals.

We know that the functionality of your website can impact its performance.  In any case, speed, reliability, and security will affect user satisfaction and search engine rankings. 

We like to leverage WordPress and all its capabilities.  We will build your site such that the site will allow you to create and maintain your the content without you needing extensive technical expertise.

In addition, we utilize the Divi Platform.  Divi is a drag-and-drop WordPress theme that offers a user-friendly interface and a variety of design options to customize your site.

Unquestionably, building a website using WordPress and Divi allows for flexibility and scalability.

More importantly, once completed, we will show you how to use WordPress and Divi together, which inherently allows for easy content management.

As we have shown, designing a website requires careful planning and execution. By following these steps, Technotions will create a website that aligns with your business goals, appeals to your target audience, and provides a seamless user experience.
