New to this whole custom web design thing? Here are some top tips from the Kartogram team for keeping on top of your project.
Do your research
Having a vision for your project will help you and your custom web design team to stay on the same page. The clearer you can be about what you want your final product to look like, the more likely you are to end up with what you are asking for! It’s also worth researching your competitors or closest market neighbours so that you can pitch your designs to be competitive and unique.
Decide on technologies
How many features and functions do you need in order to make your custom website fit for purpose? Try not to over- or underestimate your added extras - instead, think about your customer journey and commit to a custom web design that will enhance the user experience. Don’t forget about back-end features either - your team will thank you!
It’s great to go into a project with a clear idea of what you want the final product to look like, or at the very least how you want it to work for you and your customers. It’s worth mapping out your ideas in advance, particularly how your custom website will appear across different screen sizes. Working through these details ahead of time will make the design and development process much smoother for your custom web designer.
Be a good host
Don’t ignore or put off ensuring your website runs smoothly, loads quickly, and is secure enough to hold off hackers. Effective hosting goes a long way in shaping the user experience, so give your customers the best first impression by considering all the elements of your custom website.
If you’re moving from an old website to a new one, make sure that you’ve migrated all of your content to avoid falling victim to broken links. If you’re starting from scratch with a fresh new website, it’s still worth going through each page to ensure your site is functioning as you want it to. Organising a soft launch prior to a full launch will give you time to resolve any unexpected issues.
