The web is a big business these days. In fact, if you are a company in any sort of competitive field, chances are you will need a website just to be viable. The visibility is essential for publicity, and today, even just for legitimacy.
As designers, we're accustomed to conceptualizing websites in terms of design structure - wireframes, whitespace, code, navigation, and so on - as well as in terms of content management. But before a design project can even reach that point, you and your team must create a project plan.
It's no secret eCommerce is huge business these days, and this industry continues to grow. Of course, eCommerce is highly dependant on user expectations, trends and new technologies. If your eCommerce website is poorly designed and doesn't correspond with the customer's idea of how it's supposed to look and work, then your business is doomed.
There are some tried and true methods to make a good website, but making a great website seems to be much more elusive. Greatness in any discipline is a moving target, not just within the web design community. But it seems like everyone is born with the innate ability to make a terrible, irritating, worthless website.
Modern web design is striking to say the least. Designers today have countless tools and tricks to bring out the best of a certain brand and their website. The resulting design may be beautiful, but it might not have the result ecommerce websites are looking for. If you're aiming to design or repair a website in 2016, there are a few important things to avoid.
Social media has become a ubiquitous internet structure. It's no longer a separate entity, but it's woven itself into every aspect of the web. For businesses, creating a successful website means considering the impact of social media. Consumers are used to constant connectivity on every channel, and as a result, social media trends are influencing every website.
Most businesses can't thrive any more without a website. Even mom and pop shops that have been around for several decades are beginning to change with the times and adopt the use of a website to enhance their business. This is made possible because web design has never been easier, cheaper, or faster than it is right now, thanks to template-based website platforms.
