WHAT MAKES A GREAT WEBSITE?

1. RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN:

Responsive Web Design is the latest form of web development. These websites are specifically built to be viewed on a variety of different media interfaces. These include desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smart phones. Responsive websites adapt to their environment making them easy to use and view on mobile devices.

2. GRAPHIC DESIGN:

Graphic Design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving using one or more of typography, photography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), wayfinding or environmental design, advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.

3. PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY:

The internet is a visual media, visitors judge with their eyes and will only digest the content if you make the whole experience a pleasurable one.

No matter the images you have in your library they will rarely be suitable for the task, sorry, but that is most often the case. You need photography that has been taken for purpose, by a professional and with a brief from both client and designer.

4. QUALITY CONTENT:

Good content is what sets your website apart from the masses and delivers the right message into the hearts and minds of your customers. The success of your website is determined primarily by its content. Ultimately, content wins the wallets of your customers. All other components of your website (design, visuals, videos, etc.) provide a secondary support role. If you have effective taglines, great design will only enhance their effectiveness. Design itself does not sell.

5. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid search results. In general, the earlier and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

6. WEBSITE HOSTING:

Knight Light Designs provides it's customers with a variety of different hosting packages. Each has their own perks and privileges, allowing the customer to pick the package that best fits their needs. Visit our hosting page for more information.

It is good practice to update your website and is part and parcel of running a website. This applies both to adding new content and to the way your website is built. Your website is your responsibility to look after and if nurtured you can reap the benefits!
