Some key points to consider when designing a website.

  • Over 58% of users are more likely to remember your brand and logo if it is placed on the left hand side

Everything you need to do before you develop a website

So you want to build a website? Where do you start?

This very handy infographic runs you through 26 things to think about before you develop your website. Not sure they are totally in the right order. I would start by thinking about the purpose of the website and the most important for me who your audience is.

Everything else hangs off the audience as without them you are wasting your time. By creating a site focused on their needs you will create a site they will want to visit.

Now more than ever, with the growth of mobile, you need to think about how your site will work on various devices.

So the next time someone says to you they want a ‘flashy’ website, run through this list with them first.
