Website Design Checklist

Let’s Dive In…

This checklist will guide you through the crucial elements to consider when collaborating with us to craft a beautiful site that leaves a lasting impression. Let’s embark on this exciting journey together.

1. Understand Your Business Goals

Before we dive into the design process, it’s essential for us to gain a deep understanding of your objectives. We’ll work to identify your goals, target audience and key performance indicators (KPIs). This knowledge will shape the design strategy, so we can create a website that aligns perfectly with your requirements. 

2. Define Your Target Audience

Knowing your target audience inside out is the key to designing a website that resonates. By creating user personas, we can guarantee that we’re catering to the specific preferences of your ideal customers. 

3. Conduct Competitor Analysis

Understanding your competitors’ websites and their design strategy is essential for differentiation. Using advanced tools such as Semrush and Ahrefs, we’re able to analyse competitor websites to identify trends, opportunities and gaps in the market, thus ensuring your website stands out from the crowd. 

4. Choose the Right Platform

Based on your requirements, we’ll select the most suitable web platform, such as WordPress or Shopify for your project. The chosen platform will determine the website’s scalability, ease of use and functionality. 

5. Emphasise User Experience (UX)

User experience is at the heart of our process. We focus on intuitive navigation, clear call-to-action (CTA) buttons and responsive design to ensure a seamless and enjoyable journey for your visitors and potential leads. 

6. Mobile Responsiveness

Nowadays, mobile responsiveness is non-negotiable. By optimising your website to provide an outstanding experience across various devices, we can make sure your message reaches users on-the-go. 

7. Brand Consistency

Your website should embody your brand identity, including logo, colour palette and messaging. Consistent branding fosters trust and recognition, in turn enhancing the overall user experience and potentially increasing revenue by 10-20%, according to Lucidpress

8. Captivating Visuals

A picture is worth a thousand words, so we’ll make sure that your website’s visuals speak volumes. By using high-quality images and engaging multimedia elements, we can leave a lasting impression on visitors. 

9. Compelling Content

Our content team create captivating, SEO-friendly material that reflects your brand’s voice and resonates without fail. We’ll emphasise the value of your products, or services to drive further conversions. 

10. Integrate SEO Best Practices

A well-optimised website attracts organic traffic and boosts search engine rankings. With this in mind, we incorporate SEO best practices including keyword research, meta tags and URL optimisation to enhance your visibility. 

11. Clear and Accessible Contact Information

Encourage visitors to reach out to you by prominently displaying your contact information. This considered, we’ll implement a contact form for a seamless communication experience. 

12. Test Across Multiple Devices and Browsers

We conduct rigorous testing to ensure your website performs flawlessly on various devices, browsers and operating systems, as a smooth experience across platforms is vital for user satisfaction. 

13. Implement Analytics and Conversion Tracking

Web analytics provide valuable insights into user behaviour, allowing us to optimise your website for better results. Analytics and conversion tracking is established by us to measure your website’s performance accurately. 

14. User-Friendly Forms

If your website includes forms for inquiries, subscriptions or registrations, we’ll guarantee they’re user-friendly, with minimal fields and clear instructions. In support of their importance, WPForms report that 74% of companies use web forms for lead generation, 49.7% of which state these forms are their highest converting lead generation tool. 

15. Page Loading Speed

Fast-loading pages enhance both UX and SEO, so our team strive to optimise your website’s speed performance; with nearly 70% of consumers admitting that page speed impacts their willingness to buy from an online retailer, the value of a rapid load speed has never been more poignant. 

16. Security and Data Privacy

Website security is of utmost importance, so we implement SSL certificates and take necessary precautions to protect your visitors’ data and build trust. Learn more about what an SSL certificate is, and how it can benefit your website.
