What to consider when building a new website

Are you planning to build a new website? Make sure your website looks great and is easy to use for your visitors.

Building a new website or webshop is always a fun process. You create a complete design and a new website from nothing (a white sheet). Before you start creating a new website, it's a good idea to think about a few things. Below is a handy list of points to consider before building a new website.

First of all, it is important to be clear what your goals are with your website. For example, do you want people to be able to buy your products or services, or do you just want to share information with visitors? Determining these goals is the first step in building a website that meets your expectations.

Then it's time to get started on designing your website. You should consider things such as the navigation, the layout and the colors of the site. Use a clear structure and layout so that visitors can easily find what they are looking for. And make sure it is clear for both mobile and desktop.

Useful tips for building a website

  • Use a simple navigation structure
  • Make the website responsive
  • Choose colors that match the identity of your company
  • Add visual elements to support the content

Finally, it is important to make your website good for search engine optimization (SEO). Make sure that the content of your site is optimized for keywords that are relevant to your business and that your site is technically sound (such as a fast loading time).

Here are some tips:

  • Use good meta tags
  • Ensure a good internal link structure
  • Provide unique and relevant content
  • Make sure the website loads quickly
  • Use as few plugins as possible, every plugin can slow down a website
  • Make your website measurable using, for example, Google Analytics

These are some things you should consider when building a new website. It is important to be clear in advance what your goals are and then adjust accordingly. And work on good technical support, design and SEO
