Thinking of building a website on your own? Here are three suggestions to consider:
1. Develop your logo BEFORE building your website. By designing your logo first, you can ensure you are using the right color combinations and “feel” for your website to match your logo. This will save you from having to redevelop your website once your logo is designed.
2. Choose your website builder carefully. Although it is natural to want to go with the “easiest” option. Keep in mind that anything involving website development is going to require time invested. With this in mind, try to go with a website builder that allows you to migrate your website away from the company you built your website with (These are often times referred to as open source website builders).
3. When building your website, put the user experience first. In other-words, when building your website, try to visualize and anticipate what information your visitors will be most interested in. Make sure this information is easily accessible and easy to read (across all devices). This means testing your website on mobile devices, as well as desktop devices.
