What’s most important to us here at Div Creative is giving you a great website and great service. However, to do so it helps for you as the client to have an idea about what you want in your website, and also what a good website entails. One way to accomplish this is to search through websites that you admire and find aspects about them that you want to incorporate into your own website.
However, through our work we’ve noticed that some business owners around Beaverton and Hillsboro don’t know what they want for their website. In this case, we are more than happy to go through example websites and point out some factors that are important for good websites.
Here are a few basics that we find important, and you should too.
1. About Me Section
This may seem obvious, but it is very important. People like to know that they are working with other people. The “about” section is a great way to get the point across about who you are and what your business is. Keep it updated and relevant to your work, and make sure it lets your audience know that you are in fact a real person.
Again, people like knowing they are working with other people, not just technology. Especially in small businesses, testimonials are important. When prospective customers see happy current customers it makes the business feel more personal and welcoming.
3. Easy to Find, Easy to Use Contact Page
Make it easy for your customers to get in touch with you! Have your phone number, e-mail or whatever preferred contact method visible and available as soon as they land on your site. Many websites have contact info as a header or footer on each page. This way, whenever the prospective customer gets sold on what they see, they won’t have to take time searching before contacting you, they can do it instantly.
