Planning An Effective Website

It all begins with a plan...

  • You should have a Statement of Purpose for the website: What do you want the website to accomplish?
  • Well Defined Goals for the website are important: How will you determine the website's success?
  • Are your website visitors looking for information, education, or entertainment?

An effective website begins with a Statement of Purpose, Well Defined Goals, and knowing What the Website's Visitors Want. Effective websites exist to inform, educate, persuade, or entertain a target audience. Jonathan R. Allen Web Design will create an effective website and/or WordPress blog that communicates successfully with your target audience.


What Type Of Website Do You Want?

Business Websites

A website increases your communication capability with your customers. Through a website you can provide information about the goods and services you provide and allows your customers to contact you when your physical business is not open. The Internet never sleeps! A website can put you in touch with your customers at all times and from anywhere. Your business is not limited to its physical location and its surrounding market. With your website, the world is your market.

Organizational Websites

An organizational or non-profit website has its own special needs. Just as with any website, it needs to be user friendly, have clear and easy navigation, and have appropriate typography, colors, and images. An organizational or non-profit website should also state clearly what its cause and purpose is, communicate to visitors how they can get involved or volunteer, how to make donations can be made (with links to do so online), and make it plain and easy for people and media to make contact with the proper personnel of the organizational or non-profit.

Personal Websites

These websites can be about anything and everything - whatever your personal reason is for having a website! They can also be the most fun. Just like Business and Organizational websites, Personal websites should communicate effectively with the audience you wish to provide information to, and they should be constructed in a professional manner.
