By having a clear vision about your web design project, it will become easier for you to communicate your thoughts and expectations for the project.
What type of site do I need?
Some initial questions to consider
• Will the content of my website change constantly, do I need the ability to add new pages/products? – do I require a Content Management System
• Is my website just an online identity – I only require a brochure site
• Is it going to income earning – I need an ecommerce
• Does it need to be accessible on mobile devices as well as desktop computers – I require a responsive website (that means the same content will be displayed differently depending on the device the viewer is using)
Some of the types of sites that we build are:
A brochure Web site is the easiest to build. These sites combine the roles of brochure, yellow pages ad, and direct mail piece. Brochure sites are used by small businesses that need to drive foot traffic to their physical location. Brochure sites usually have basic information about the business’s products or services, location, and the hours it’s open. They make heavy use of photographs and marketing copy to entice potential customers to visit. Are usually not updated very often so do not require database functionality.
Visual artists, designers, musicians can take advantage of the internet to showcase their work.
corporate or business site
Used to provide background information about a business, organization, or service.
business or ecommerce site
If you want to sell your products directly to customers, you will need an ecommerce site that is based on a catalog of products. Each product in the catalog contains a description and often includes a photograph and product review. An ecommerce site requires specific software that manages the catalog, provides a customer shopping cart, and includes a method for customers to pay.
Working Planet use a reliable open source shopping cart (woocommerce) for all ecommerce sites. You will be in control of adding and removing products, pricing, and shipping.
blog (or weblog) site
Blogs are generally used to post online diaries which may include discussion or forums. Blogs have evolved over the years to do much more than post your random thoughts. The blogging system you choose can be modified and be used for any type of site on this list. It is usually a good idea to incorporate some sort of blog into your site, by way of a news section, where you can add up to date information.
not-for-profit or community site
A site where persons with similar interests communicate with each other, or disseminate information.
All Working Planet sites are built using the World’s best Open source content management system, so that you will always be in control of your website’s content.
