As a business owner, you are always looking for the edge to keep your business competitive in today’s marketplace. As such, when you get ready to launch your next website, there are 9 key business web design package features you should look for.

9 Business Web Design Package Features

1. Fixed cost

Few things are more frustrating than planning on spending one amount on your website, only to be continually hit with price increases. To avoid this, you should only consider a web designer that will give you a flat price up front. This removes the uncertainty from the process and provides you better value, as you know you won’t be hit with cost increases every time you ask a question or suggest a change.

2. Custom-designed website

Some web design teams use a template for every website they build. The result is your website could end up looking exactly like your competitors’ websites. Instead of settling for a template, insist that your web designer custom design your website from the ground up.

3. Mobile responsive design

If your customers are forced to resort to scrolling sideways to see your website, they will be annoyed and likely leave your site. A mobile responsive design will cause your site to automatically reconfigure its layout to match the screen to the device used to view it. This keeps your site looking good and reduces customer annoyance.

4. SEO search engine friendly

Search engine optimization (“SEO”) is key to a successful business. You need to show up in the search results, and to do that, your website must be designed so that search engines find it easier to navigate and understand. Your next business web design package features absolutely must include this attribute.

5. Social media integrated

A strong website is nothing unless you have a good social media presence to go along with it. The best websites are integrated with social media platforms, making the transition from one to the other seamless in terms of content and experience.

6. Stock images

People, including your potential customers, are visual creatures. You need strong and colourful images throughout your site to engage them and draw their attention to main points. Your web design package features must include good, relevant images.

7. Ability to add more pages after launch

You don’t want to pay your web designer to put together a website and then, later on, find that you have to pay more if you want to add pages. Worse yet would be finding out that adding pages is not even an option. Instead, find a web designer that uses a platform such as WordPress, making it a snap to add more pages down the road.

8. Private website training

A website you can’t use is of little use to you or your customers. You need the ability to add information and updates as necessary. Make sure you’re using a website designer that offers training on how to use your new website.

9. Ongoing Web Hosting, Support & Maintenance

Some web design businesses will launch your website, shake your hand, and wish you luck. Then, down the road, if something happens, you’re on your own.

You should find a web design company that offers ongoing support to ensure your site stays up and running in the future. At Pixel Fish, we offer future support to all of our customers.

In addition, we offer all of the above features as a matter of practice when we design and create a website for a client. If you have any questions about web design, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to helping you!
