We build a vast array of websites here at Delivered Social.  We recognise the importance of building websites that stand out in the market and we want to work with you to create the most powerful website possible. However, we also recognise that it can be difficult to know where to start when faced with building a new website. Even if you’re not building the website yourself, coming up with the ideas can be tricky. But don’t worry, because we are here to help with some ideas on what to think about before you build your website!

1. Think about planning your content and required pages before you build your website

Firstly, you need to have a think about what your website needs to achieve. What is the story you want to tell your audience? Why are they coming to your website in the first place and what is going to make them interested enough to keep scrolling? What are the pages you would require to tell this story effectively? Keep your content short and to the point, as visitors will not spend time reading every word if it is long. You could have a look at websites with a similar offering to yours, to see what they’re doing right and wrong.

2. Deciding on a website style is important

Secondly, always remember that web design is important. The aesthetics of your website will keep your visitors interested, as well as help it stand out from other websites in a saturated market. It is vital that you have a clear idea of the style you want your website to follow. The nature of your business will influence this majorly. So, think about appropriate colours and images that you could use to get your message across. Again, have a look around at other websites for inspiration.

3. Create a powerful brand identity

Finally, we live in a digital age where everything is simplified down, and it all starts with the logo. This is the memorable mark that leaves the impression on your customers. It is important to have a strong brand identity. Not only does it look better but also makes your business look more established and professional. We would recommend having a clear idea of your brand identity set as something to think about before you build your website. After all, you don’t want to have to totally redesign it if you change your mind!
