For this reason, you need to find information related to building a website, you can search via the Google search engine, social media, or YouTube videos.

10 Easy Steps to a Usable Website, Let’s Listen

Here is a quick guideline to help you on your way.

1. It’s all about your content

To get your website listed appropriately the content of your website needs to be nested between the tags.

This way it gets read by the search engines. Your content also needs to be unique and get your point across.

What is it about your product or service that is better and different from your competitors? 

This is called your usp or unique selling proposition and should be conveyed clearly and immediately upon hitting the page.

2. Make effective use of your title and description tags

These are your two most important tags when it comes to referencing your page content. Meta keywords rarely have any impact whatsoever on your page listings.

3. Make sure content is well formatted

It is very important to break up your content with italics, bold text, bulleted lists, etc. Well-formatted content makes your pages more accessible to visitors the search engines also.

Visitors scan across your page rather than read it so it makes sense to format your page so it can be browsed yet still convey your message.

4. Proper code

Having proper programming in place is quite simply a must. Web standards have changed substantially over the years and it is important to make sure your pages validate both HTML and CSS. Think of it this way.

How effectively could you get your point across if you were talking Swahili? Your code is no different. Why make it difficult for search bots to index your content?

5. Do not use Front Page, Dreamweaver, or any other WYSIWYG editor

While accurate, MS Front Page, for example, makes it easy for just about anyone to throw up a web page it doesn’t take W3C compliance into account Hence the code it outputs is an absolute train wreck.

This is terminal for your website as you need a strong code base (foundation) or your site will never stand up to the competition.

6. Don’t design in Flash

Seemingly technical in nature or “neat” perhaps flash animation only serves to distract visitors from what they came to your site for in the first place, your product or service.

Your services are what visitors are interested in not a blinking, noisy, website. Flash also creates major problems with getting it properly indexed.

There is no way for the search engines to extract content from your website as it is all contained within the pdf. If you absolutely must have a Flash page it is imperative to offer an HTML version as well.

7. Easy on the eyes

Graphical elements play a huge role in website design as well. You need to make sure you don’t have any extreme contrasts between colors and that you don’t use really bright colors as they are quite hard on the eyes.

Your logo or brand should be clearly displayed on the home page and in more than one place.

8. Instill a sense of well-being with ease of use

Make sure you have all legal documents in place such as privacy and return policies. It is also important to have all of your contact information pricing etc. displayed in a manner that conveys legitimacy.

It should be very easy to contact you for any questions your visitors may have.

9. Include an opt-in newsletter

A great way to generate return customers is to offer an opt-in newsletter. This allows for direct marketing to people who you know are already interested in your product or service.

What better way is there to keep customers abreast of new products or changes in the services you offer?

10. Use a trademark or tagline

In our case we trademarked the manipulated symbol with the phrase bringing e-solutions to you, thereby effectively increasing the strength of our brand.

We are now able to effectively convey who we are and give a good creative idea as to what we do.
