Web Design ‘A Broken Topic’
Web designing in Nepal is one of the most trending topics. Everyone is trying to go online to promote their business, increase sales and profit. For this all they do is find a web design & development company and ask them to get them one with everything they want on it. But is this really that easy to develop a website featuring every need a customer wants within a given deadline. No! would just be a simple answer. I would rather say
Every customer barge in gives the requirements and there he/she goes. They don’t care about technology used or it’s cost. With all my experience I can say HTML & CSS the technologies we use to design websites are not even as good as compared to any GUI building system found on windows or mac.
The one reason front end developers have bad reputation is because their job seems to be easy but in reality, it very hard as toolkit and language is bad.
To compare web design today with one’s 20 years back we will certainly find increase in versatility as there are more than enough improved tools, guides and supporting forums (like stack overflow). The quantities of learning materials back then were way less and designing & developing a web would actually take months to years.
Can a web developer call himself programmer or even a developer today?
Developers are not they way they used to be back then who would write their own code or do manual system testing. They develop a website and rest are just replicas (or to be so). Developers be like creating hundreds of websites with same tools, same code with just a little bit of difference in design. They don’t even want to be creative and why should they as they are getting paid enough for the same backend, they developed the first time. Do these kinds of websites get enough visitors? certainly not. Reason! Do you prefer replica shoes or the branded ones?
There is a saying “Website without visitors is like a ship lost in the horizon.”
So, if you are a web designer or developer you should not just build websites, you should build websites that SELL.
What Features makes a perfect website?
First of all, no website is ever perfect. No matter how many features you add to it there will always be something missing out. So, instead of making it perfect focus on making it responsive. A website should be at least encompassing following features:
You will be missing out from reaching to tons of audience if your website desktop friendly but not mobile friendly. Mobile friendly websites tend to attract more audience as compared to non-mobile friendly websites.
Creative Design & Dynamic
Better the design, better the chances of acquiring more impressions. A web without creative design is a like a painting of “Horse grazing the grass”. No one will buy it not because it’s bad but because you can’t reach out to people.
Search Engine Optimization plays a most important role out of all to get more traffic and increase your website ranking on search engines. Make sure your website follows the best practices of SEO.
Multi-lingual (If possible)
Make your website supportive to multiple languages to get international visitors from all around the world. This helps to get more revenue and increase in sales.
Menus (Login, Blog, Contacts, Search)
Make sure to include important pages in the Menu for better and faster accessibility to the contents. People are more interested to just search for the content as well. A search box is likely a must.
You web application should be applicable to multiple platform across web. Building a web that runs only on one machine is not enough. An application should be compatible to almost every machine out there.
A branding logo is what makes your websites unique from others. What’s Apple without a Bitten Apple Logo? or what’s Nike without a Tick Sign?
If you are not supporting your client on every problem and difficulty, you are not being professional. Support and service is only thing you should be concerned about after your build a website successfully because error just might be on the way to knock on your door.
