There are so many exciting design concepts and ways that you can deploy a website these days. However, it’s important to make sure that you get the fundamentals right otherwise you’ll end up needing to rehash your website on a regular basis. Start with careful planning of what you want your website to do and then build your design and functionality with that in mind.
The important elements to consider:
- Long-term maintenance of your website
- The relevance of your content
- Responsive design
- User-friendly code
- Technical SEO
- Your content management system (CMS)
- Being too trendy with your design
- The website experience from a user’s perspective
Updating your website
Yes, it is important to update your website regularly. You can change content on pages, add new sections to your website and write blog posts. All of this will keep your website doing well on the search engines and will keep users coming back because your website is useful.
However, it’s not a good thing if you have to completely overhaul your website regularly because it isn’t working properly, it isn’t adapting to new technology, or the design has dated quickly. Small changes on a regular basis are good. Big changes on a regular basis, however, will cost you time and money.
