WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEB DESIGNER AND A WEB DEVELOPER?
This has changed over time since technology has made it easier for graphic designers and qualified web designers to familiarise themselves with add on web software and plugins. This has taken much of the ground up coding away. WordPress and other content management open source software allow companies achieve many functionalities without the need for a web developer
A good web designer is someone who is both creative and technically inclined, and uses both these attributes to build or redesign websites. The web designer has the ability to understand what is needed to make a website functional and easy to use, but at the same time make it aesthetically appealing to the user.
Web developer is a web software programmer who specialises in the development of applications using associated programming languages like HTML/CSS, C#, Ruby and PHP to name a few. A Web developer is usually concerned with the back end or the programming aspect of creating a website or Web application and is not to be confused with a Web designer, who only deals with the aesthetics of a website or application, although many professionals have both skill sets.
HOW TO PLAN WITH THE CHOSEN WEB DESIGN COMPANY?
The success of any store often comes down to attracting plenty of foot traffic; similarly, on the internet, being ranked highly on search engines can increase business drastically.
However, being on the right page when it comes to establishing new (or refreshing existing) websites is just one string that idDesign offer
Successful website design planning and content management tips:
Develop a clear site map to reach your objective.
Create rich media with design elements to send correct branding messages.
Ensure Functionality and Navigation is tested and has an easy of use.
Edit and write purposeful content that will capture your audience with call to action buttons.
Test and get opinion of relevant audiences for last improvements.
Decide the content associated with each page. Plan for short content and how images can be arranged. The arrangement can reveal how you expect a visitor to review the site. You can then plan how an analytics tag should be implemented.
Decide on a keyword strategy based on the content presented. Plan for non-branded keyword terms (for discovery of your business) and branded terms (to strengthen a brand) – words that contain your business name, or persons involved in a website who are well known online.
Create a relatively broad list keywords for search engine optimization, though remember to select words that speak to your customers.
Spend time crafting the text around the selected keywords to explain the benefit customers receive from working with your business.
Insert keywords in your image filenames when applicable. The file names can appear in the HTML code for a page on which the image appears. To be manageable and not overwhelmed by managing pictures, keep images to a low count 30 if possible and avoid stock photos – Thanks to Pinterest and Facebook, customers are expecting real experiences when they come to see you.
Avoid animations or flashy splash pages on a page. Page speed has increasingly become a factor in visitor enjoyment of a site, as well as a factor in search engine consideration. Moreover many people view websites through a smartphone, even ones not optimized for mobile, so adding extra flash to entertain viewers is outdated.
Consider how images are arranged on each page – as parallax or as a carousel. This will cut the size requirements of a page, as well as provide another way for customers to remain engaged. Let the designer know if you plan to update pictures more than once, so that they can review with you where new images can be placed in the site code.
When adding a mobile site, choose simple actions a visitor would take to contact your business online. An example is being able to call your business via a simple button instead of forcing a dial up of a number.
Footer content should appear across each page, containing social media buttons (Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Google Plus, Reddit, etc). It should contain the business address, as well as links, badges, and widgets for other associations, such as the Better Business Bureau or trade association membership. Because social media platforms and organization typically considered highly ranked in a search engine, placing these into the footer can strengthen search engine optimization.
Gather customer accolades for a display on the site. They can appear on main page, one or two on every page, or in a dedicated page for “what customers are saying about us.”
Analytics tag should be decided such that future digital marketing efforts can be planned. Plan exactly what marketing tools will be used, so you have an idea of what to add.
Do not seek to build a great amount of traffic initially. Overcapacity can slow down loading times, hindering customer service, and make the site appear mismanaged by visitors. Build traffic over time, monitoring performance to make adjustments that will come for every site. Make sure a set aside budget for upgrades and site improvements.
