How To Design A Simple Website

website designWhether it is for business or simple blogging, creating a website can seem like an overwhelming task. Keeping the basics in mind will be key in creating your website. With some basic tips and the right tools you will be able to create a great-looking website that will be both rewarding and enjoyable for you and your clients/readers. Will Power PCS wants to give you some basic tips to help you create your new website, hassle free.

STEP #1- Choose Your Website Platform

A website building platform is a simple template for building websites and managing your own online content. It has been designed so that you do not have to use individual HTML pages to create your website.

There are many different options on the web these days for website hosting. You will want to choose a credible host, such as:

  • Website Builder
  • GoDaddy’s Shared Hosting
  • WordPress

It is important to use a reputable hosting website so that you don’t lose valuable files and/or experience poor customer service. Using a hosting website that is not reputable can cause you loss in time, money and increased aggravation.

These building platforms allow you to choose your desired layouts and themes.

STEP #2- Choose A Domain Name & Host

Domain Name– A web address like WillPowerPCS.com

Host– A service that will connect your website to the internet

When choosing a domain name you will again want to make sure that it is from a reputable and established source. Bluehost.com has a lot of great reviews and recognition which is something that you will want to look for when searching for your host. There are many website hosting providers on the market which is why it is important to do your research.

When deciding on your domain name, you will want to make sure that it memorable, catchy, and follows along the lines of what you are promoting.

Once you have found a hosting provider, you will be able to choose your domain name.

STEP #3- Designing Your Website

Once you’ve selected your domain name and your hosting server  is setup, it’s time to create your unique and easy to navigate website! A bit of preparing in the beginning will make it simpler to stay on top of the latest, useful website tips without wasting a lot of your time and energy.

Using a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress can save you on a lot of time and money. A CMS will permit you to change how your website looks and allow you to frequently refresh your content (data, pictures, etc.) on your site without worrying about coding. It will walk you through designing the layout of your page.

You will want to limit the number of decisions that the user will need to make on your page, when navigating around your site.  This will help them get to what they’re searching for fast so they are not spending a lot of time trying to find what they need.

Remember, when designing your website you will want to keep in mind the following:

  • Keep it Simple
  • Keep it Clean
  • Easy-To-Use Navigation
  • Useful & Accurate Information
  • Provide Contact Information

STEP #4- Make Your Website Readable

Using standard HTML, and avoiding tags, plugins, and features that are only available to one version of a browser, is in fact the easiest way to make sure that your website will be readily available to whomever may be trying to view it. 

STEP #5- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

When you are constructing your website, you want to pay attention to SEO.  When users search for something, you want your website to show up quickly.  A CMS, such as WordPress, makes this simple through the utilization of modules, for example, Yoast SEO.

If your website has high ranking SEO scores, then you will receive higher results in large search engines such as Yahoo and Google.

STEP #6- Test Your Website

In order to finalize your hard work, you will want to test your website before it goes “live” making sure that everything is working properly such as; the navigation, links, and images. Feel free to play around on your new website making sure that everything is exactly how you imagined it!

Following these six easy steps will help you create a simple and easy to use website for your business or blog. If for some reason you are still having trouble creating your dream website, Will Power PCS can help with your website design services. You will receive assistance from an experienced website developer and grapic designer who will work with you to make the ideal site for your business or blog.

This is the place to do business with. Their service contract includes remote service, which is great, because the issues always arise during non-business hours. We just purchased a new laptop from them, and software was loaded remotely. Will is very knowledgeable and honest. We have been doing business with him for years.

First of all, Will stayed late the night I was going crazy finding somewhere reliable to drop off my external hard drive (which all of a sudden was no longer functioning). I called up to see how late they were open and he offered to stay a little later (since I was still a bit of a drive away) so that I could drop it off. He took a look the very next day and when he knew he couldn’t replace the part I needed right there in the shop, he assured me that another company he partners with for work like this is also good at what they do. He was right. It took a bit of time because my drive did not cooperate at first, but I am so grateful that I was able to get back all of the important files and photos that I had not yet backed up (lesson learned!). Will always got back to me when I had questions and even reached out again after everything was completed to make sure that I received everything with no trouble. I am very pleased with, and appreciative of, the service I received with Will Power PCs. I definitely recommend them to anyone in need of computer services! Thanks again so much!

Will Pitt reached out to me being a business next door. Since, we have done a half dozen projects together & he is by far the most knowledgeable & price friendly person/company I have dealt with within his genre.

Having just moved to the area and not knowing anyone to recommend a computer repair shop, I went to the web and am very pleased to have found Mr. Pitt. This being my 9th corporate move I must say so far this business experience has been the best for me. He is available 7 days a week and when not with another customer can sign on to your home computer and take care of your urgent needs. For the years of experience he brings to the table, his rates are very appropriate for the high quality work you receive. In fact I was so satisfied with my personal computer, I had him to do some work for the company I work for. I will say, I haven't tried any other computer service in the this area and I will also say I won't. If you have any computer issues, here is the place to take those issues as they are in good hands!

I had an issue with a brand new computer. Will opened his shop on New Years Day just so I could drop it off! A few hours later I received a phone call, the problem was solved! I didn’t expect to hear back for a few days. Will is fast and efficient.

William was really helpful towards solving the problems I had. I have a custom desktop and he was able to diagnose my problems and find a solution that didn't require any additional parts. It only took him about 20 minutes to solve the issue too! He was polite when I made silly IT mistakes and even helped me root cause with an additional issue for no extra charge. If I have more issues I will definitely return here.
