If you have contracted a web designer, or web design company, to build a website for yourself or your business, there will come a point in the process (or possibly several points) when they ask you for feedback. This can be a daunting task if you’re not used to evaluating websites! But you don’t have to be a pro to give relevant, constructive feedback. Use the following tips to help you out!

  1. Start with colour

The first thing a person (i.e. prospective customer) is going to notice when your webpage first loads are the colours, which will immediately evoke specific emotions – this means that your colour palette is so important! What is your initial gut reaction when seeing the mixture of colours the web designer has used for your site? Do they make you feel happy? Confused? Are they professional or fun? Do they convey what you’re hoping to achieve, and do they match your brand? Is there too much, or to little? Your instincts will help you out here – don’t ignore them.

1. It’s Loading Slowly

If a potential customer or client clicks on a link to your website and it loads slowly, chances are they’re going to leave again, really fast.

DIY Onsite SEO

One of the things I'm most often asked about with websites these days, is how to get on page 1 of Google - and I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but there is no fast or secret way to do this. It takes months or years of consistent work and effort.

Don't be completely disheartened though; There is good news! You can make changes to your Joomla website that can help Google (and real people looking at search results) understand what your website is about AND improve the ratio of people clicking through to your website.

Think about how you use Google. Are you on the couch at night using your phone or tablet? Or is it during your lunch break at work? Or how about when you're trying to solve a problem? Most of the time, it when we don't have time, and that impacts our browsing behaviour.

After clicking on a search result in Google, how long do you wait for the website to load? 5 seconds? 10 seconds? Keep that answer in mind...

Now, have you tested how long your business website takes to load? How does that compare with how long you are willing to wait for someone else's site when your time is critical?

INCUB8 have had the pleasure of working with some amazing clients recently, and we are proud of what we have achieved alongside these businesses.

Something that we have been building more of lately are membership websites – sites that not only require generic pages for the general public to access, such as Home, About Us and Contact, but also a custom-built section for potential members to sign-up, and for current members to log in and use for specific purposes.

At INCUB8, these sites are built using Wordpress and a variety of plugins, particularly the WooCommerce and MembershipWorks platforms.

We won’t bore you with the nitty-gritty, but using these tools allow us to build a site that fully meets the needs of our clients, and their members.

Let us take you through an example.

I'm not bragging, but this afternoon, I built INCUB8's entire year of content topics. OK, maybe bragging a little... But guess what? It was EASY. That's probably because it's my fourth year doing it - and that kind of time, mixed with trial and error has helped me create a super simple system to plan out all of our Web Eggsperts blog posts for all of 2017. Want to know how to do it for your own business? Then, read on!
