How to Choose the Right Type of Website for You

Building a website when you start your business is very important. It is essential that you do your research when it comes to the website design options available for your particular business. Sure you can have a quick website thrown together but customers simply won't take your company seriously. They will notice the shoddy design and will rather go to another company that has a beautiful and functional website. Take the time to build a proper website that represents the type of business you have.

Did you know that you have a lot of choices when it comes to designing a website?

You can choose a Dynamic, Brochure, E-Commerce, or Catalog Website. It all depends on the type of business you have and how you want to engage with your prospective customers.

To decide on a website design that is right for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • What type of business do you have?
  • Who are your customers?
  • Will you sell online?
  • Do you offer a service?
  • Do you sell products?

Once you've answered those questions, these are the website options for your business:

If you have a consulting business then you don't have physical products. You offer a service to professional clients. A dynamic website with interesting sliding pictures of your business will grab the eye of your prospect and you can add all the relevant information about your services.

If your business is based on online selling and you sell to consumers who have internet access, then an online store with payment integration is ideal for your business. You want to make it as easy as possibly for a customer to navigate your website and make a purchase.

If you sell a lot of products in your physical store and you want to display these products to your customers, then a brochure website is ideal.

If you need to upload and remove products via a content management system, then a catalog website will work best for you.

A professional website designer will be able to advise you during the process to ensure that you have the right option for your business. It is best not to skimp on your website, because it is the first impression that you will give your prospective customer about your business. A cheap sloppy website will give the impression that your service is cheap and sloppy too. Take the time to invest in a professional website to attract customers.
