A sleek, functional website is a must for any business in 2020. However, it’s impractical to set aside a massive budget dedicated to building a website. The good news is that your business can create a great website even on a tight budget! Follow these tips to get the most out of your site!
Select a Content Management System
Content management systems like WordPress and SquareSpace make the site building process much easier. If you’re having trouble getting your site to perform specific functions, there’s a good chance that someone has already created a plugin on one of these platforms that will do it for you. Plus, if you decide to supplement your site with additional content like a blog (hint: you should absolutely do this), a content management system will make the process a breeze.
Purchase Your SSL Certificate
Regardless of the size of your budget, you should set aside some of it for the purchase of an SSL certificate. When new potential customers visit your site, the last thing you want them to see is a warning that your site isn’t secure. Purchasing an SSL certificate will give your visitors the peace of mind that they’re working with a business that is legitimate and cares about their privacy.
Emphasize Mobile Compatibility
In 2019, 40 percent of time spent on websites came from mobile users. It’s no secret: mobile design is fundamental to the success of a site. Regardless of your budget, make sure your site is fully operable on desktop and mobile. Your customers will appreciate it, and your search engine ranking will likely improve as a result!
