The Internet has only been mainstream for a very short time! Even 20 years ago, few people had access at all, but in today’s ‘connected world’, all businesses, from startups to multinationals, need an online presence to be effective.
Some may shy away from this, but the truth is that it really is important, and aside from the lucky few with the technical skills, one of the biggest challenges for small businesses is how to start an online store or create an information website that is effective at a price that falls within their often limited budget. In the past cheap costs meant cheap looking sites, off-the-shelf, badly designed sites with limited functionality, that were difficult to maintain and often even had data limits that added huge unseen costs if you managed to build to a lot of visitors.
Fortunately, as with the ability to access the internet, having a website has moved on considerably. Today, those looking for small business website design in Sydney, or across Australia, have genuine quality websites available at affordable prices, with modern user friendly design and reliable web hosting. Indeed, rather than the problem of not having a choice of what an affordable website is, todays small business has the problem of what they want their cheap website design Sydney to accomplish for them.
Off-the-shelf designs with mundane themes used to be dull and uninspiring. Today’s offerings are beautifully designed. But for a new business starting out, the first question is what do they want to achieve with their new website? What kind of website you need it dependent on what type of business you want to do online. With this, when looking for small business website design in Sydney, understanding what the goal of the website is of utmost importance.
Several choices beckon, depending on the business itself. Your new website could be a purely online marketing tool. Used to inform and connect with existing or potential customers. This would include information about services or products, news and so on. Or it could be an ecommerce site, where the goods, and sometimes services, are sold directly from the website itself. These two disparate uses for a website require very different solutions, and so when looking for cheap website design Sydney this isa strategic decision that needs to be made from the outset. For most businesses, this choice is straightforward, and indeed it is possible to shift to an ecommerce system later if it makes sense. However, if it is about promotion only at the beginning, the extra expense of an ecommerce site is perhaps something to be avoided.
Once the basics are sorted, the look of the site itself needs to be decided. For budget site, usually the style and layout is chosen from a range of template themes. Today’s themes are attractive and well produced by a graphic designer and web developers. Once the layout is decided, you can add your own content and usually create a really unique look for your new site.
