- Let the Website Designer Know What You Want.
An important tip when using a website designer for your project is to know what you want and explain exactly that to them so that can work out a quote for you accordingly.
Many clients contact us for a website and are vague in what they really want which means back and forth contact to get finer details. For example you may want to sell things online or offer services. Let the website designer know what you wish to sell or what type of services you want when inquiring. Even better if you look up competitors in your products and services and send links so that you can give the website design company a better outline.
2. What is the Purpose of Your Website?
As mentioned above an idea of what the purpose will be of your website should be supplied when inquiring. What products you want to sell, what services you want to supply, or do you need a personal informational website, or portfolio? Maybe you simply want a blog to post content to for your readers connected to social media, or you might want to monetize a website with affiliate links and Adsense for another example?
3. What Type of Website do you Prefer?
One of the most popular and may we add easy to manage CMS systems currently online are Word press which Ritcor specialize in. However you might want a static HTML website built onto templates of your preference. Perhaps you want a squeeze page to build an email list linked to social media or one when you can post special offers and banners as a means of monetization?
When requesting quotes let the website designer know in detail so that they can work out the quote accordingly.

6. What Every Website Needs
***Every live website needs a home and a name which means a domain name suitable for your business and hosting which is like paying rent for your domain to live in.
You may want your website to get lots of visitors so this would mean some online marketing tactics like SEO, social media and paid advertising to get your brand known.
It is important to remember that new websites take time to get ranked and Google can take up to 6 months to list you which is done because some websites are here today and gone tomorrow.
However some dynamic online marketing can still make your website become profitable and most website design companies will be glad to punt you a few ideas to help. For example Ritcor offers help to manage your social media and build your Facebook page up.
Keeping your business website updated with fresh new content is vital and search engines, and new visitors watch for this too.
