Best website design software : Part IWebsite Design Considerations IThere was a time long, long ago in technological advancement years when website design was out of thereach of all but the relative few who could write the hyper text markup language better known by itsacronym html from start to finish.Website design, then as now, was in high demand for those with the tools and ability to help a clienttarget an audience, develop a world wide web presence, and populate it with fast loading (at 28.8 Kbps)web pages.Of course those early days saw sprites rendered in 256 colors as opposed to todays true colorprogramming (eats up lots and lots of resources) , and those historic basic colors ruled in a tile-basedworld and we thought they were something. Specificity of product, of course, especially if images wereto be employed, became the real challenge as they could be inordinately cumbersome and slow to load.The result being one of three options, to wit: (1) wait and wait and wait - maybe while you mow thelawn, (2) become exasperated with the tedious task of internet speed - actually modem speed - to thepoint of "clicking off" the website, or (3) losing your treasured internet connection.In 2008, companies such as AOL, Net Zero, and many other Internet Service Providers (ISP) offeringcheap internet connections assures that there remains enough people using dial-up to connect to theinternet that one doing website design must be ever cognizant of loading speeds. The standard for thismeasurement remains 28.8K for the Computer Man Website Design Team although no one in theUnited States can expect to efficiently, if at all, cruise the internet at that speed.The difference being that almost anyone can design and build some measure of a website in the 21stcentury with little or no help. Many companies that offer internet hosting also offer basic website designand promotional tools. One can sign up for a sub domain, build a nice web site, add an avatar andpromote it to a few search engines in an hour or less.Missing in this scenario are the tags a website needs and any special requirements of theentrepreneurial enterprise. If the site is personal for family and friends such an under taking may bemore than sufficient. All that is left to do, is an e-mail to your contacts to let them know where they canfind your postings, photos, etc and you only need to change the web site when the spirit moves you. If,
however, you hope to use the site to generate revenue either as a hobby or primary source of incomeyou could be way off base.Let’s be clear. There is no problem with a sub domain per se or as pertains to search engines. The searchengines treat a sub domain as the separate website that it is. Perhaps we can cover this complicatedsubject in a separate article.No. The problem is with the flexibility of the primary domains shared website design templates. Theseare templates set up specifically for sharing as little bandwidth (space) as possible with sub domains.When you compare the features and space allocated to you with that of the host, you will quickly seemany of the limitations of the majority of these hosts and arrangements.Best practices, even if using a free sub domain, is to create your website the way you want it with a thirdparty program and upload it to your new sub domain. This can be done relatively easily with suchprograms as Alley Code, Evrsoft, Coffee Cup, Page Breeze or other free html editors. You can also usefree WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get - maybe) website creators such as Nvu or Sea Monkey. Fora Free online store creator one might try the free version of "easy store creator"... of course. What elsewould it be?For more complicated and user friendly websites most will still need to retain a professional websitedesign team. However you go about designing your website, make sure you understand and complywith the pre-requisites of the host or you will find that all of your work was in vain as your site will berejected one way or another for one reason or another - too numerous to cover here.Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you back a fewthousand bucks. But you can do the whole thing yourself and make it drag and drop simple for merepennies with a tool like Breezy Websites.

Website Design ConsiderationsThere are several heavy duty website design and HTML editing programs out there to help you design,write, and publish your website, Blog, or newsletter template. They are, however, not the be all and endall. Anyone wanting a properly working web site must...simply must...have some knowledge of scriptand code as well as search engine optimization techniques and internet promotion tactics.These cover email lists, advertising, press releases, Blogs, article writing, wholesaling and drop shipping,website design, SEO and other promotions.A decent doorway can be a simple information site. It doesnt need much in the way of graphics orwebsite design prowess, and can even simply be one page as we see in most internet MLM. The greatsales gurus of the world wide web raking in the big bucks typically have one web site though they maybe selling several products. Each product has its own sales pitch page...just one page. KISS (keep itsimple stupid) is the golden rule!When most people create doorways, they are trying to get something for nothing. They spend small(sometimes large) fortunes buying information from illusionists who use slight of hand to tell theircustomers just enough to keep them coming back and purchasing one more "How To" E-Book.Without proper experience or website design background many mistakes are made. First, try analyzingthe web site of the information promoter, and try copying what he or she is doing and not get caught inthe trap of just doing as they say. They have no incentive to give you or me the real deal...the wholetruth and nothing but the truth. If they lay it all out step by step they are immediately out of business.What would they then sell you in their follow up e-mails?Although Microsoft had such a template in their web design software in 98, I think it was, it would beconsidered crass and distasteful to make your website look like the command center of the starshipEnterprise. Now remember the old Tennessee Mountain Man is as about as backwoods as it gets andeven I chuckled at how red neck the polished Microsoft Corporation rendition was. Having said that, afew smatterings of high tech applications can give your website design reputation a good boostespecially among the younger generation, the wanna be, the treckie, and the 2.0 socialite. Know youraudience. Who do you want to reach? Dont over do it! Regardless of what the SEO purists say, contentis still king. Keep it simple. Keep it clean.
Start with as clear and simple website design as possible. Some sites will require more dazzle thanothers. But, remember, the more bells and whistles the slower the web site loads and responds tobrowsers and searchers.A good website design should be easy for your human visitors to navigate, enjoy, and understand. Atthe same time it should also be intelligible for the search engine robots that also visit your site. It mustbe accommodating to cross browser platforms such as internet explorer, Netscape, ougo, AOL, fire fox,opera and more.Your goal is to attain the best level of internet marketing. As 12steppers would rightly say, "there is noeasier softer way". There is no free lunch. There is no such thing as working 30 minutes a day with asite on auto pilot while you rake in millions while frolicking with Playboy Bunnies on your yacht so getthat picture out of your mind right now.Proper marketing goes a long way in attracting the target customers to your website and thereby,achieving maximum commercial success in the long run. It is a process. This is not for Harry Potter norBur Rabbit. The DSL Turtles actually have the advantage here. Take it easy, but get it done.Procrastination is a killer!In order to maximize target audience visits to a website, one of the first steps to be taken is creating awebsite design that simultaneously runs parallel to your business objectives and is attractive enough toengage the attention of your visitors.Your website design is the first impression. If it is a mess or if no one can find it and potential customersnever see it, it is also the last impression. Either they never got there or they never stayed or they hadno reason to return.You must decide if you really have the time, knowledge and technical ability to devote to websitedesign and, most importantly, keeping that site maintained and up to date? If not, maybe you shouldconcentrate on growing your business and let a website design professional concentrate on making yourwebsite work for you.
