The Key Elements of Website Design

“Styles come and go. Good design is a language, not a style.”
–Massimo Vignelli

I happened to read a very good article written by Barry Adams about making websites. A website must possess elements that are both attractive and functional. Generally a website is designed and it’s pages featuring the text and images are structured in a logical way. The content management system of the website allows the owner to add or change content. These are the bare minimum requirements for a website but it does not stop here, the key elements for a good website design are listed below:

Responsive website
Owing to the rise in the number of the smartphone users, people prefer to do shopping on their smartphones, on-the-go. This makes it vital for developers to design a responsive website that works good across the devices like smartphones, tablets, laptop, and desktop, irrespective of their screen sizes.

Page Speed
No matter how attractive the website is, the page speed is critical to it’s success. The faster load times help boost your search engine rankings thereby improving your conversion rates.

Web Analytics
Studying web analytics is indispensable as it features the impact of a website on its users. Analytics provide you with the number of conversions and the conversion rate for your website to evaluate the effectiveness of your online business and marketing campaigns.

SEO
Your website must possess on-page SEO tags and elements, including schema and XML sitemaps that will increase the amount of visitors to your website and help in obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page.

Conversion Optimization
It helps owners to create landing pages for the specific campaigns that would help in the conversion of the visitors to your website into leads.

Content Management System (CMS)
A good content management system enables owners to upload, edit, and manage content displayed on the website. The developers need to make sure that they integrate a good CMS with the website they develop.

Social Media
Integrating social media channels with your website work seamlessly to promote your brand and result in the sales.
