Web Design or Web Development?
Web design is a process of conceptualizing, planning, and building a collection of electronic files that determine the layout, colors, text styles, structure, graphics, images, and use of interactive features that deliver pages to your site visitors. Web designers are architects of the web. They focus on the look and feel of the website; and so, they should be visual arts experts, who are skilled in color scheming, graphic design and information flow. Designers are typically more in tune with their right brain hemisphere, utilizing their creativity, intuition and imagination, to design amazing user experiences.
Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). A web developer creates the inner workings of a website and competent in programming languages (PHP, .NET, Python, C, Ruby). They are responsible for developing the user interface. Technical hands-on coding experience is required (either your own products or github).
Webclick is both web designer and web development agency in Nigeria.
Do you Need a Web Designer or Web Developer?
When it comes to building new websites or updating existing sites, most people don’t know the types of professionals they should hire to get the job done right. You don’t need to run the risk of hiring the wrong person; you just need to know how to compare your Web needs with the services that professionals can offer. Generally, Web professionals fall into one of three categories: back-end developers, front-end developers, and Web designers.
Back-end developers are essentially computer programmers who focus on creating Web applications. They can create content management systems, security features, and data management tools. Having a good back-end developer gives website owners the security and flexibility they need to keep their sites running, gather information about users, and give users access to specific profiles.
Front-end developers are more experienced with creating tools that will enhance the user’s experience. If you have a design concept that needs to function on multiple browsers and computers, then you want to hire a front-end developer. Consistency is key here, and the site design should be scalable enough to address all types of users. This means that no matter if the user is on a desktop or is accessing the site remotely via a tablet with a mobile or satellite Internet connection, the general experience should remain the same.
Web designers don’t usually have as much experience with computer programming. They might know the basics of HTML, CSS, and other common tools, but they aren’t the people you want to rely on when you need someone to build a website. They are, however, the people you need to create professional graphics that will appeal to your site’s visitors. Web designers might also create an overall concept that tells the developers where to build navigational features.
A team approach: More often than not, companies need to hire Web teams that can work together to create sites. A reliable Web team will have at least one developer and designer. The best ones often have multiple developers and designers who can work together to make a website that matches the client’s unique concerns.
Now, if you’re still stuck for selecting the right professional, you’re in the right place…
Why Would I Need a Website for My Business?
If you don’t have a website, then you might not realize what it can do for you. Maybe you think that because your business is too small – or maybe you don’t even have a business there wouldn’t be any point! Perhaps you think it’d be a lot of work for little reward. Or maybe you spent a lot of money for a site back during the dot-com ‘boom’ days, only to get nothing but trouble out of it and shut it down a year later. Whatever your situation is, though, here are few reasons why you need a website.
- Websites Never Sleep. Many people surf the web in the evening when most businesses are closed, which is perfectly fine because websites never take a break. A website will allow your business or organization to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Having a website is the equivalent of having an employee working around the clock – even weekends and holidays!
- Your Top Competitor Has A Website. If you are in direct competition with another business that has a website, they have a clear advantage – especially if they are adequately marketing their website. A website is a great way to level the playing field.
- “Just Google It”. More than ever before, people are turning away from traditional means of finding information and looking online, especially by way of mobile devices. Your business should be at their fingertips when they look in the search engines.
- Websites Improve Customer Confidence & Corporate Image. With a professional website, you will improve you overall impression to the public and, in turn, your customers will develop a greater sense of confidence in your organization.
- Small Businesses Have Higher Revenue. According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses that have websites are averaging $1.07 million more per year in sales than small businesses not online. That equates to 39% higher revenue.
- Do You Know 60+ Million People? That is the number of Nigerians that regularly use the Internet. Worldwide Internet usage is pushing two billion.
- Websites Help Establish More Customers. According to the Small Business Administration, 50% of Internet sales are from new customers. Having a website significantly improves your customer reach no matter what services or products you offer.
- Websites Are Not Just Local, They Are Global. My business mentor use to say start small but think global. Most small businesses are only able to market to their town and surrounding communities. With a website, you can take your goods and services across Nigeria and around the world, if you so choose.
