Website design is based primarily around the user experience, referring to the actual design and layout of the site, how it looks, what content is available, logos, graphics, colours etc rather than the actual software and functionality of the site. Web development is an extension of this, taking this development and turning it into a fully functioning website.
There are seven basic steps for the design and development of a website, beginning with information gathering, planning and design of the site. Then the content is created (words, video, images etc) and assembled. After this, the coding process can begin to make the website functional. Finally, the site is tested and reviewed and then launched to the public. The final step is ongoing maintenance.
How long is a piece of string? Like anything, you get what you pay for and websites can cost anywhere from around $2000 to $12,000 to completely build in Australia. There are DIY options available, but if you want your website to be a tool that helps grow your business and serve your customers around the clock, you will need to make the investment so you can be better than your competition.
It is possible to create a website without spending any more, but there are going to be restrictions. You are not going to get a custom URL, for example. If you are using a free templated tool to create your site you are going to have to pay money to unlock a lot of the features including the ability to have your own URL (which also attracts an annual fee). If you want a professional website for your business, there are going to be fees associated.
Put simply, the web designer is the one that shapes how your site is going to look, where objects, assets and creative content are going to be placed, your logos, your colour scheme – everything about how your site looks. The web developer is the one that will place these assets and make your website functional.
This depends on your level of experience. There are many simple DIY, templated sites that will allow you to create basic sites. These are perfect for sole operators and businesses with a very small budget that just requires a web presence and nothing more. The more you learn about website development and coding, the more hands-on you can be when it comes to the development of your site.
Templated sites are usually cheaper and quicker to put together, but the negatives are that you can’t truly put your own personality onto your site, you risk using the same templates as other websites (including your competitors), they may not be search engine friendly and you will not be able to do any customisation. Custom sites take more time but will deliver much greater results in search engines, across all browsers and will include all of the features you want.
The scope of a web designer is enormous. They can help shape your entire brand including the creation of your logo and even your business name. They will design all of the content that goes on your website (which can also be included on other business assets). Whether you are an established business or starting from scratch, they will ensure all of your branding and messaging is clear in the design of your website.
First impressions are everything and your website is how you are going to instantly impact your audience. A professional web designer is going to be able to work with you and ensure all of the right messages and branding are present, as well as taking care of the aesthetic and user experience side of things to ensure your customers are met with a positive experience.
Here is the key thing you want to establish from the start, are they coming into the room telling you how to do things, or are they asking questions and listening to you? You want the latter, a company that is going to take the time to get to know you, your brand, your challenges and your goals and then bring in their skills, ideas and expertise to bring it to life.
User experience is about more than just how your site looks, it is also how it performs. Developing your website is important to ensure that it is running and loading quickly and that the user experience is seamless. This development is done behind the scenes and involves coding to optimise and maintain every aspect of your website.
