Professional Website Design Process
The World Wide Web firstly got its name after it was created as a global hypertext project in 1989. Commonly known as the web, it is a system of interlinked text that is displayed on electronical devices with hyperlinks (references) to other text which can be easily accessed by the reader through the internet which makes it easier to share information and enables a flexible connection. It helps “bring the accumulated knowledge of the world to your fingertips”. Many people consider the internet and the World Wide Web as the same; however, the global system of interconnected computer networks is the internet, while the web is merely one of the services that run on the internet. The web is usually accessed by web servers and web browsers and is a collection of other resources and text documents, linked by URLS and hyperlinks. Navigating the web or window surfing or browsing came to be known when you move from one page to another through hyperlinks. The World Wide Web enables you to view a web page when you either follow a hyperlink to that page or type the URL of the page into a web browser, which in order to display the page, the browser then initiates a series of communication messages. A browser retrieves, presents, and traverses resources on the World Wide Web, or in other words, is a software application for the transmission of messages. These web browsers can also be used to access information provided by files in the file system or web servers in private networks. Example of some of the major web browsers are Google Chrome developed by Google, Safari developed by Apple Inc. which also includes the iOS and OS X operating systems, Internet Explorer developed by Microsoft which was included as part of the Microsoft Windows line of the operating systems, Mozilla Firefox developed by the Mozilla Foundation and its subsidiary, the Mozilla Corporation which was developed for Windows, OS X, and Linux with a mobile version for Android, and etc.
As with any new business, you need to first gather information about your customers’ needs and wants and the kind of products or services that you can provide. Similarly, when designing a web site, the initial step is to gather valuable information such as the type of site your want to establish or the reason for having a website, whether you want to reach more customers which will of course help you to gain more profit, or the type of audience you want to target through your web site. After gaining these information, you have to develop a web site that is easily navigable and especially one that is interesting and catches your viewers’ attention that will compel them to stay on your page rather than move to your competitors.
Design can be interpreted as one of the most important aspects of your site because it will either help you gain more customers or lose any potential clients. If your site is not engaging or is not up to date, your potential clients will perceive your business as unprofessional and boring. Your design of the site depends entirely on the audience you are targeting. For example, if you are a toys company, your targeted audience will undoubtedly be kids; similarly, a site aimed for shopping will have a completely different theme and setting. In this stage, you need to ensure that the design matches your needs and speaks positively about your company. After finalizing the design, the development process begins.
A functional web site is created where all the elements from the initial prototype is included and where the content is added throughout the web pages.
Testing & Launch:
When the final development of the site is in place and when the necessary changes are implemented, you need to test the full functionality of your web site. Whether any last minute compatibility issue arises when viewing on different browsers, and whether the user experience changes when viewing on different platforms such as computer, tablets or mobile phones. For your site to be launched officially and for it to be easily viewed by the public, you need to ensure that all the files are correctly uploaded and the essential plug-ins is installed to ensure that the site is fully enhanced.
After you have gone for a manicure, you have to continually tend to your nails to ensure that they are properly trimmed, moisturized and the coating of the nail polish is not peeling. Same goes with any idea that you have implemented. After you have launched your site, you have to incessantly monitor and update information and provide new content or news on your latest products or services on a regular basis to ensure that you gain more visits to your site and reap more benefit
