If you are the proud owner of a business in the vicinity of Utah, but your business is still without an Internet presence after all these years, you have some serious thinking to do. Chances are that all your competitors already have websites for their businesses and that they are grabbing customers that could have been yours. There are so many Utah web design professionals out there that you really have no reason not to have your own website.
Perhaps you are simply overwhelmed by the Internet and you don’t want to talk to a web designer, because you don’t quite know what to ask him. Let’s briefly look at the web design process and the information the web designer would want from you.
In the first place you have to provide all relevant company information. Your web designer will most likely know nothing about your business and its products, so you are the one who will have to supply this information.
The website will normally have a page describing your company, its background, management and special achievements. The web designer will not have this type of information. You will have to provide him with it, preferably in writing.
There will also be a section describing your products and services. Pictures can be very useful here, so have them ready for the designer. Do not get overly technical however. Keep things concise, relevant and interesting. It’s fine to have a separate section for visitors who might be interested in technical information.
Another important section is the one containing contact information, such as telephone numbers, cell numbers, fax numbers as well as a contact form. Something that works very well to stay in contact with interested parties is a mailing list. If you can get a visitor to sign up for your mailing list from the website, you have all the opportunity in the world to stay in contact and turn him into a long term customer.
Your web designer will advise you when it comes to the layout and graphics to be used on the website. You will probably prefer to use your corporate colors on the site. Your company logo is also usually displayed on the site, so make sure you have a good quality copy to provide to the designers. Any pictures or other graphics that you want displayed on the website must also be provided to them in a format they can use on the web.
Your Utah web design expert will assist you all the way until your brand new site is ready to be launched. Make sure that you are not too busy with other things during the design process. If you are not available to provide information, pictures or other input it will delay the whole process.
