A good website must have good planning, which includes setting up goals, knowing your target audience and gathering all required information. Having a website doesn’t not only cater to your company’s needs, but also to your customers. I usually ask my clients what they want their customers to see when they visit their company’s website; this helps me analyze their needs and understand their customers. Capturing the customers’ interest is key to having a good website.
In Uganda/ Africa, having a company website is still a new idea to most businessmen and therefore considered a luxury. There’s a possibility that business people who want to have websites are following the trend blindly, this leads to getting manipulated by website developers. Most website developers seek money first without considering the client’s needs. Whereas clients are willing to go in for a cheaper option only to regret later when the website is not serving its purpose.
It is easy to set up a good and working website, but does it speak to your clients’ customers? Take time understand your client’s business. This will help them gather the appropriate information and it also help you earn their trust which is very important.
Here are some of the reasons as to why customers need consultancy before they decide to get a website;
- It helps in planning and getting the required information
- Helps you understand your audience and therefore speak to them directly
- Saves time and money
- A developer who gives you advice before they take your money is worth trusting
- It involves you in the design process
- The ability to update your website due to free training
