Making Your Own Website Design

There are lots of ways to create the website design you want to achieve for your own site.  One way is to use website design tools and programs that are available to you in exchange for your hosting a link or ad on your site.  Another is to hire someone like me to create your website for you.

If you fancy having a try yourself just jump in.  It’s not that difficult to create your own website, as long as you keep in mind a few things:

Design

Select the type of design you want your page to have.  Don’t allow your website design idea become lost behind cool new technologies like animated menus, dynamic links, and so on. If you aren’t really on top of these kinds of technology, using them improperly will cause your website design goals to be frustrated. First figure out what design concept you want for your website, then work out the details.

Coding

Many to most users of the internet are not familiar with the raw coding languages describing a web site’s appearance, and powering a web site’s functions. If you are one of these people don’t worry. Most graphically based design tools are available which remove any requirement that the user understands the underlying code. These WYSIWYG, or ‘what you see is what you get’ programs perform their magic with a friendly interface using simple drag and drop operations…very much like Microsoft Word.

People new to the experience of building a website will often post only the template derived from a website construction tool without adding any actual content of their own, leaving out the primary purpose of a website and the reason people go to websites. Therefore, when constructing your website, develop and add content to it before posting it live on the internet. By adding content before publishing the website, visitors will not be under the false impression the website has nothing to offer and they’ll be more likely to return.

Testing

Test your website to see if it works in popular web browsers. There are some software differences that may make your site appear fine in one browser and appear distorted or discolored in another. Many website design tools allow you to test this in various ways. Failure to test for compatibility can result in very disgruntled web site viewers and your page looking disjointed.

Alternatives

That’s an easy one…get me to do it for you.  My Websites start at just £250 and you also get free hosting for a year!
