Dedicated Mobile Website or Responsive Website

Before deciding whether to go the responsive or dedicated web design route it is important to know what kind of content the site will be featuring. If the site will have lots of text, images and/or video then creating a responsive website would be the most logical choice. There is little need if any to alter that type of content, which simplifies the transitions between different devices. Dedicated mobile websites may be a better choice if the content will be fundamentally different on mobile than on the desktop site or if there are lots of tabular like data. Although, this type of content can be created to be responsive it’s not cost effective. While it’s true that responsive websites cost more usually, that is because they are quality adaptive websites that will need little maintenance in the future. Dedicated mobile websites are less expensive but as new devices are created…

5 Tips for Making Your Web Design and Redesign Projects a Success

Whether you’re designing a website from scratch or redesigning an existing website, you need to know how you’re going to go about with the project.

Every website will have different goals, so there isn’t a universal guideline that you can follow. However, here are some tips to making sure you’re doing the right things with your web design.

The Connection Between Corporate Website Design and Branding Aspects

When it comes to corporate web design, many corporations overlook the purpose of branding and focus too much on themselves. If you look at the websites of several corporations, you’ll find that many of them talk about what they do, their past history and what they’re doing now. The atmosphere is often cold, dull and boring. It’s no wonder that these websites spark very little interest. These websites lack a strong brand identity that connects the audience to their companies. If you think about it, there isn’t much that distinguishes similar websites in a given market. They sell similar products, are designed similarly and have a similar website structure. What’s going to differentiate these websites is having a strong brand identity that resonates with their audience and creates an emotional impact. This identity is what will get people to do business with a business over another competing business. The problem…

The Visual Branding Aspect Through Web Design

Every company, whether small or large, will need to focus on their brand if they want to differentiate themselves and create a strong identity in their industry and marketplace. The biggest mistake that companies make is focusing too much on the logo and message. While these two things make up a large component of the brand, the overall visual presentation is missing. This is especially evident in the web design of these company websites. While the core elements of the brand are there, the visual presentation is missing. That’s why it seems like a generic site with a brand “sticker” attached to the header of the website. There are very few elements (if any) in the design that indicates that the website caters to the audience, nor are their elements that show the uniqueness of the brand. Visual branding is the key to getting the target audience to identify with…

Designing an Engaging Corporate Website

For most companies, a corporate website is designed to provide information about to the public, prospects, customers, potential business partners and investors. Unfortunately, the language and web design tends to lose users as a result of the “corporate” design and language. This leads to users abandoning the website or feeling disconnected from your message. The solution then is to come up with engaging web design that makes users want to use and interact with the website, which would then get them to learn about and even associate favorably with your company. The first thing you can do is to use storytelling. The magic of using stories is that it draws people in as opposed to something like a mission statement where people feel like you’re lecturing them. Storytelling can be used through words and pictures, so you want to make your corporate story a part of your design while using…

Do You Need a Microsite? Understanding Its Purpose and Benefits

Many marketers and companies build microsites (also called minisites) despite the fact that they have a primary website. In case you are not familiar with then, microsites are small websites with minimal functionalities and purposes. The goal of regular websites is to deliver content, educate users about your products, market the company or brand, and provide customer support. Microsites, on the other hand, might have the singular goal of capturing leads to educate and follow up for a sale. Microsites are primarily built to focus in on a subject or a product. For example, a microsite can be built to generate leads for people who want to learn the acoustic guitar or a group of people looking to buy special noise cancelling earphones. The goal of the site is to hyper-target a specific group of people. While most microsites have the goal of qualifying and generating leads, microsites can be…
