Web Design Consulting - Some Considerations
It?s time to change how you view your website, and what you think it should do for your business, but be cautious on the web design consulting you listen to, here is why. For eons, it seems, website design and a lot of web design consulting, centered around making a very pretty site with some ?cool? features. These sites have been pretty, and there have been some really cool and awesome designs and sites created using this method of ?let?s make a really cool website that looks pretty.? There are a couple current trends out today that follow this same train of thought, but here is the problem. FUNCTION! How does it benefit your company if you have the coolest website in the world that doesn?t function and can?t translate to sales, or signups, or donations, or whatever you are offering or asking users for? Too many web design consulting ?experts? are great at suggesting or even designing these cool sites that have no usable user interface, as if it is an afterthought to their cool design.
So what am I saying, get rid of all cool sites and make something plain and boring. No way, that misses the whole point! Yes, it is possible to still have a great design, a very cool site design, and have real function built in. The key is choosing the right web design consulting professional that knows what it means to design with personas in mind and action pathways through your site. If you have not heard of this type of design, it?s ok. Most web design firms do NOT design like this. They may talk about it, but they don?t practice it that often. One reason for this is because to effectively create a beautiful design with persona development and action pathways, you have to first create a comprehensive strategy for the entire web property. Not only do most web design consultants and firms not do this, they don?t know how to do it.
What are the Benefits of Persona Development and Action Pathways within Web Design?
There are many benefits of persona development and action pathways within web design, here are a couple. Different people come to your site for different reasons. These reasons are identified through several processes. Once these processes are complete, action pathways are created to take these users down specific paths that lead directly to a call to action and/or a conversion. This is critical because it helps your site achieve ROI for your business. This ROI can be measured in a lot of ways: email signups, new volunteers, products sold, donations, people getting involved, etc. The point is, it has been proven that persona development and action pathways lead to real ROI for a site if the right team is put in place to put this strategy into motion. Another benefit is a better web experience for users visiting your site. Happy users will not only result in repeat visitors, it will result in visitor referral. All great news for your site.
So why waste time with a web design consulting company that can only make cool designs? It is time to stop thinking of your website as an ?expense? and start thinking of it as a tool to help generate real ROI for your business. It is time to hire a web design consulting group that can take your entire website property to another level of performance.
