4 Tips For Providing Your Web Designer With Helpful Feedback

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.

Is your slow website killing your business? In short, YES!

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's when we don't have time, and that impacts our browsing behaviour.

Creating Custom Membership Websites

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.
