With every passing day, web development is going through tremendous change. Web developers and programmers keep working on making the websites look good in order to build a strong impression on the targeted audience. But it is equally important to realize that your website should offer what your customers are looking for.
Many businessmen and web developers work on making their website look stylish or tech savvy. Their websites look amazing but when the visitor tries to find something they are looking for, they can’t see it because the website isn’t designed by keeping the customers in mind. Among the multiple factors that one needs to keep in mind while offering web development services in 2014, few important ones are:
1. The website should offer what the customers are looking for.
Making your website simple and to the point is very important these days. If you have a heavy website which takes more loading time, it will annoy your audience and they’ll ultimately leave. On the other hand, if your homepage offers everything that the customer wants, the chances of their doing business with you increases. Basically, homepage holds utmost importance. Web developers and businessmen should sit together to design what actually works for the homepage and what a prospective customer would be looking for.
2. The website should offer smarter transitions.
With the introduction of quality displays such as Apple’s retina screen and development in pixel density such as 4K resolution, the web developers need to ensure that their websites offer smarter transitions. Few years back any transition between a website used to be a huge problem but now, developers ensure that websites have enough room for transitions.
3. The website should be tested for all OS and browsers.
There is a new trend of operating systems launching their own browsers for mobile and desktop. Google laptops run on a modified version of Chrome whereas Mozilla also released a Firefox Mozilla OS for mobile. These options are helpful for those buyers who can’t afford to buy expensive smart phones. That’s why; web developers should make sure to test the websites for every OS and browsers.
4. The websites should be launched when they are fully functional.
If you have a huge brand name and you are planning to launch your website live, make sure that it’s fully functional. The testing phase of any website holds utmost importance. Most of the times, businessmen commit to launch the website on a particular date in a jiffy and when the website is launched, it’s a disaster. The owner, web developers and marketing team needs to sit together to figure out a launch date with a little cushion, so when the website is launched, it offers everything you promised.
5. The mobile websites need to have larger text and smaller layouts.
The major issue with most of the mobile websites is the typography. This issue needs to be resolved by the developers with larger text and smaller layouts. With the influx of mobile website users, you need to ensure that your website is compatible with mobile and smart phones or you’ll be losing a big chunk of business.
