Do you find that everyone’s websites are starting to look the same?
This is because most web design agencies (both here and abroad) use a handful of stock templates on rotation that they simply copy and paste your content into. If you want to stand out from the crowd and be recognizable within your industry you need a professionally designed custom and responsive website or online shop. One of the advantages of Steve Sot Websites is that you get a one on one experience from the first point of contact right through to your website launch with minimal back and forth!
When you are ready to start you will receive a checklist to commence the design of your site. Once all your content has been received a mock up of two potential designs are submitted for A/B Testing.
Your Content Checklist
✔ Images- Banner, Gallery, Profiles
✔ Contact details
✔ Information- intro, categories, promotions
✔ Existing website link if applicable
Your Design Checklist
✔ Desired colour scheme
✔ Minimal or Compact
✔ Page Layout
✔ Links to any sites that inspire you
✔ Preferences/pet peeves
A/B Testing provides invaluable real life feedback by the general public and your target market.
From the two designs submitted you receive insight and feedback on what your customers are looking for in your website and ultimately help you choose a design that will achieve your online goals.
