Many people start their own businesses. They wish to make money through their products or services. They may also want to provide products or services to their customers. In order to execute that, they need to build a website first.
If you want to make money through your website, you can add tools and features that can make your website popular. First, you need to know what features are crucial for your website. This takes a lot of research time and money as well. But you know what? You don’t need to worry about it anymore.
WebCommander recently published an ultimate website checklist infographic. It can help you like your best friend. So without further delay, let’s start with the description of some highlighted features from the infographic.
Generally, people don’t like websites that take much time to load. If you want more traffic on your website, you will need to maintain as short a load time as you can. You can reduce server response time, use a good website host, minify resources and enable browser caching to maintain website load speed.
You can also optimize images, use CSS instead of images where possible, and monitor your speed rate over time.
Website design is proven a vital feature for having an engaging website. People always love visuals. So, it would be best if you kept in mind that your website design should be visually appealing and responsive.
Apart from that, you should add a favicon, stick to the color palette and avoid an overloaded menu. You can also incorporate human faces into your website design and leave plenty of white space between elements.
Quality and Presentation of Content
When presenting content on your website, make sure to use appropriate font types and sizes and add relevant and helpful links to your content. You can use visuals like screenshots, infographics, videos, and images to make your content more presentable.
When it comes to maintaining the quality of the content, you must deliver the exact things you promised in your title, avoid jargon, and use correct grammar and spelling.
Your homepage should include the following:
- A logo.
- A relevant headline.
- A convening call to action.
- Photos of you and your team.
- Clear navigation.
- Supporting images and testimonials.
Besides that, you also need to include client logos, certifications, awards, a portfolio, a blog, and search functions on your homepage. In addition, your homepage should answer all the questions about your website that can arise in visitors’ minds, for example, who are you? For whom are you working? And mostly, what makes you better than your competitor?
Along with these mentioned features, there are many more that you can easily find in the infographic. Though each website is different, infographics represent the common features that will be effective for all kinds of websites.
