Making a website in this day and age has not been any easier – with the advent of Weebly and Wix. And for the most part, people think they can make their own websites without the need of a developer. But is that really the case?
Well, with the help of WordPress I believe it is possible to get to a certain point. You don’t need to have amazing coding skills. With a little knowledge of HTML and CCS, which you can teach yourself through excellent online resources, your website can be ready in no time. However, that is not all the elements it takes to make a fully designed and functional website that converts customers.
WordPress Website UX and Design
What most people don’t think about when making a website is the user experience and design, and also, understanding the key points and layout for a high converting website. Yes, WordPress can help you with a simplified use of elements that you can assemble just like Lego, but WordPress does not tell you how many call-to-actions you need on your front page and where to put them, or what type of form you should use. And many other aspects which have been studied and put into practice here at DigiGround.
Creating a WordPress Website
When you create a website, you want your website to stand out from the rest. So, how can you do that by just relying on WordPress which everyone has access to? You’ll need some expert help.
Look for the following support when planning a website build:
• Hire a professional designer
• Utilise a professional content writer
• Speak to an SEO specialist
• Work with a web administrator or developer
If you don’t know what you’re doing you could end up with a slow and low performing website that Google frowns upon, but more than that, your could create a horrible user experience for your potential customer. With a poor converting site, you probably won’t even make it into the top 50 pages on Google. Here at DigiGround we know how to increase your website speed and enhance the user experience with a fast and appealing website. As well as have your website rate in the top 10 pages on Google.
Most importantly, WordPress may give you the power to make your website and publish it live, but it doesn’t tell you how to make it look good as well as function to achieve your goals and meet you expectations. DigiGround have made many WordPress themed websites for our clients, check them out!
