The main purpose of building a business website is to give your company the online presence it needs. It is also a platform to provide all the information about the company and the services you render. This information should be on the home page to prevent visitors from getting confused about which page to check.

Whether you choose to create a simple platform or you’re planning for a bigger e-commerce website, always make it easy for visitors to easily navigate your website to give them the best user experience.

2. Choose A Good Domain Name When Building A Business Website

When building a business Website, a good domain name is something you must consider. It is your official website address (URL) and the first thing a potential client will see. 

A unique domain name will give the first impression and will make SEO easy. This is why when choosing a domain name you must consider these few tips:

  • Make thorough research
  • keep the name very short
  • Avoid complex spelling
  • No numbers or symbols
  • SEO-friendly Url ( Use relevant keywords)

You can register your domain name with Smart wipes, google host, and host gator.

3. Create An Email Address When Building A Business Website

4. Choose A Website Builder

Popular forums for building a website are WIX and Square face. These Forums are user-friendly and easy to use. They are also suitable for having creative templates for top-notch designs.  Wix has a short learning curve and it enables you to build your website faster due to the fact that templates can easily be changed. While square face has a longer curve with drag and drops experience. The best part is that it is affordable for a low-budget business owner.

Other notable website-building forums are WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world with many useful plugins to make your site more functional while with a vast support community. A good advantage of using WordPress is that it is free and its installation is simple.

Drupal has similarities to WordPress in terms of flexibility and easy usage. Although it does not have as many plugins, it ensures more security against hackers. Joomla has the best SEO security and can use other languages.

For whichever business you decide to do, make sure to choose the most suitable website builder.

5. Creating Business Pages 

Create Website pages

 

As a business owner, you cannot consider building a business website without adding pages. The existence of each page gives your website more relevance, and each page must have its own use relating to your business. The home page is the main page that should provide the most information.

The about page should be about your business goals and visions. The contact page gives visitors directions on how you can be reached (business address). Most contact pages even have forms for people to send messages concerning the services they want from you.

There should also be a blog page where you can make posts about your business, and a privacy policy page. Visitors barely check this page but it is equally important for your website. Don’t forget to provide a call to action.

Other points to note:

  • Test your website by clicking through each page’s browsers to ensure that everything is working perfectly before you publish.
  • Optimize your search engine by choosing the right keywords and ensure your Images are equally optimized. Most importantly, optimize your site speed to ensure that your pages will load quickly
  • Place Internal and External links
  • Follow my advice.
