Web Design That Works

This is a known statistic that you have only a few moments to engage a user who browses across your website. There are millions, aliens a websites are competing for a user’s attention, how are you able to get someone to spend time at your website, you have to get them engaged and interested. Most of the people who visit a particular website, if they don’t care for something, they are gone within seconds.

In order to have an engaging website, one that grabs the attention of the user, focuses on action words, color and placement designed to catch the eye; you must have a professionally designed website. If you are new to the online world, and you simply throw together a website, without having an end goal in mind, often you will do more harm than good.

How to Begin Excepting Sales and Generating Leads Online?

One of the most important ways to use your business or company website is by introducing new people to your business, also called generating leads. There are multiple website design teams, focus in particular areas of web design, take the time to research the person or company you’re considering, finding out if they have experience, and the talent to create a web design that does you or your company justice.

Web Design

You’ll want to find a company that not only will create an online store, but one that can meet the look and feel of your brand, that focuses on monetization, and provide user interaction and ease of navigation. Your website should function quickly and easily, without undue complication. It does no good to have the fanciest graphics and latest animation, if they simply add confusion to your message. The final goal of an e-commerce website is to generate sales, make money, and convert the visitor. The reverse is also true; you do not want to confuse your user, instead of making them feel cared for and comfortable with your website. Done properly your website can be a 24/7/365 sales machine, allowing you to live the Internet dream, and make money while you sleep.

You’ll need to find a web designer who can provide content, logo design, and the necessary form interaction. Besides simply concentrating on design, and making sales, there are many other factors which are involved with creating a successful online business; your website must have quality content, which helps with the search engines, and allows the customer to feel they found what they are searching for.

Having a custom design and logo, will help you begin the journey of building a brand for you and/or your business. It is crucial to have a business management platform, designed into your website, that can handle your sales and keep track of clients.

In today’s world it’s not difficult to find a talented web design team. Make certain you are dealing with a company you feel comfortable with, has a good an established track record, and a staff that can quickly and easily answer any question you might have. When you accomplish this, you can be assured of having a web site you’ll be proud of well into the future.

    Some interesting takeaways on web forms, but found the references to great
    m. sites or mobile optimized sites and then references that Google supports
    Responsive Web Design (RWD) a mixed message.

    Sure mobile optimized sites should be better on mobile because then only
    focus on one device type, but the fact that they split SEO and make share
    problematic made referencing them with RWD a very poor narrative.

    The talk would have been a lot clearer and better if it only talked about
    the benefits and pitfalls to avoid of RWD. By mixing in mobile optimized
    sites the talk is less consistent.

    Attention everyone: Mobile sites are garbage. Do not even create one. Just
    give us the desktop version.

    Great Reference Book For Designers, February 16, 2013
    By

    This book is a must have for a web designer’s reference library. It takes you through the entire process of website development from the planning stages to the publishing stages. It is also divided in a way that you can read the book from start to finish, or you can look up specific areas of interest and go right to it. There are plenty of examples, pictures, links, and lessons available that help to grasp the message. The author is not only extremely knowledgable about web design, but also gives great advice for dealing with current/future clients as well.

    All of this being said, I feel I should point out some of the things I thought the book was lacking. First of all it is a great introduction to web design for beginners, but it is not a step by step guide you can follow and have a site built by the end of the book. It is more of a list of tools and knowledge that you will gain to make your own creative site at a later time. Second, while the book is geared towards using Adobe Deamweaver and Photoshop to make your website, it does not teach you how to use the actual software. It occasionally gives tips on how to use certain functions of the Adobe programs, but not much more. Finally, I really wish the author would have tied all of her examples together at the end and shown a completed website’s coding and the physical appearance. It would have been nice to see how everything looks all put together, instead of little bits across the chapters.

    If you are brand spanking new to the world of design, this book will be a valuable asset in the future of your work. It will not teach you all of the basic knowledge required to use the things learned in the book though. I would say this is really more for intermediate to advanced designers. As a current web/graphic design student I am pleased with this purchase and look forward to using it as a reference in the future. If you have no prior experience I would recommend buying additional books teaching you how to use the software of your choice (Adobe is the leader in the industry but there are other options as well).

    Great Book – Very comprehensive & resourceful, August 22, 2013
    By
    RGB_R

    This review is from: Web Design All-in-One For Dummies (Paperback)
    This is a great book. While I am not looking to enter into the web design business and am just looking to build a site for myself, I have learned tons from it.

    The early part of the book starts off with a discussion of the business aspects of web design & development side by side with the actual design aspects. On the business side you will see discussed such things like having a statement of purpose (IMO very important), doing informal marketing research, hiring free-lancers or copywriters, getting royalty-free vs. rights-managed stock images, publicity, visitors to your websites, shopping carts and so on. For all of this Jenkins provides good information and a host of links to sites where you can do follow-up if you want to. On the design side you will see discussed wireframes, sitemaps, image formats, color optimization, mockups, image slicing and so on.

    As the book moves forwards, it develops more into a discussion of the basic code that you use to build a website, viz. HTML & CSS. Other issues such as responsive design and mobile are also discussed here.

    The books ends with discussions of more technical coding aspects (to me anyway) such as JavaScript, jQuery, testing, code cleanup, roll-over effects, etc. and how to go about actually getting a website set up (DNS registration, ftp, etc.). Note one thing – while the new tags that come with HTML5 (e.g. <article>, <section>, <header>, etc.) are discussed, they are not discussed in depth.

    I found the book to be very readable. It really is for dummies. The book is also very comprehensive. Jenkins really knows her stuff. She has her finger exhaustively in every aspect of the web design process. Added to all of that she supplies a lot of good resources for follow up.

    If I had to recommend any changes it would be the following:
    (1) On the internet (even this morning on a youtube video) I have found people confusing wireframes for mockups and vice versa. They are not the same. They are quite different. While Jenkins distinguishes between the two, she discusses them in depth in separate chapters. Maybe they should be discussed side by side in the same chapter.
    (2) I think at certain points, the pictures could have been bigger. For example the sitemap picture or the mockup. By nature people will tend to analyse these sorts of figures down to the writing on them.
    (3) Perhaps more should have been said about Typography and HTML5 since it seems to have become such a big deal these days. Other than these minor nits the book is excellent.

    Good book but too focused on Dreamweaver, May 28, 2013
    By

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    The book is a good tool for beginners, such as myself. However, it supports a very important portion of its explanations on Adobe Dreamweaver. For first time learners such as myself, who don’t happen to own that Software, this becomes a nuisance, since you fail to receive the complete explanation or concept, and instead get the “it comes automatic in Dreamweaver” alternative.
