If you want to have a successful website, make sure it has the following features.
As we have mentioned on several occasions, your website is your business card on the Internet and that is why it’s so important that it is as professional as possible.
A good website will help present your products and services in an effective way and it will help increase your sales possibilities.
So we recommend that you invest a little time and effort!
Here are 5 things that every good website should have:
1. Good hosting
It is extremely important to have a reliable and secure hosting service as this will prevent your website from suffering attacks or frequently going offline.
Some of the site builder platforms already include hosting, such as Pagevamp, so you don’t have to worry about it.
If you are not very clear about hosting services, we recommend you read our article: What is hosting and why do you need it.
2. Clean design
Another very important factor that you should consider when creating your website is the content arrangement.
It is important that all the elements (text, images, videos, etc.) are properly distributed so that the visitor can navigate the site with ease.
We recommend avoiding the accumulation of elements; for example, an excess of text or images can be tiring for the eyes.
3. Good quality photos
Remember that an image says more than a thousand words!
So, we recommend that you choose the photos on your website with extreme care and consideration.
If you sell a product on your site it is essential that you include good pictures of it, as this will help it to be sold more easily.
It is recommended that a professional takes the photos. But if you cannot hire a photographer, you can take them yourself, just take great care of the lighting and the background where you are going to place the product.
Another option to get professional photos are the stock sites, such as Shutterstock, Pixabay and Getty Images.
4. Contact form
Once people know your products and services, you have to give them an option to be able to contact you.
We recommend that you include a contact form on your website where people can leave their message. Another option is to leave an email or phone number.
5. Links to social networks
The presence in social media is a factor that you cannot neglect today.
That is why it is very important that you place buttons or links to your social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc. in some very visible space on your website. In this way, people who visit your website can also get to know your social networks.
These are some of the most important elements that you must consider when creating your website. If you invest a little time in this project and plan it carefully, very soon you will start to see the results.
