Web creation Mauritius – 5 steps to be online

Your internet presence is your business card on the internet and should make an impression. Here are the key steps to creating a website.

Okay so you feel your company needs a fresh new website for this year 2019. At Web, we strive to give our customers the best tips and insights before even signing any contract. This information is provided for free. And, free does not mean cheap or unimportant here. We’ve taken our 20+ years of experience and created this article to help you better create your next website.

In the beginning, the creation of a website, especially in Mauritius, can be intimidating. Add to that the number of questions that pop up in your mind when designing the idea of a website which will represent your professionalism on the web. These questions can be, how many menu items do I need. Which languages do I make my website available? What can I sell on the website? Is there even a demand on the internet?

If you do not have a proper concept for the site, you can quickly lose track of how to create the site, and in the worst case, the site becomes an impenetrable labyrinth for the reader. To prevent this from happening with your website, we have put together some most important steps in creating and maintaining a website for you.

1.      Why do you even need a website?

Almost everyone today has a website to showcase a facility or products. Nevertheless, you should ask yourself why you want a website. You should never create a website “just like that” or “just fast”. Your website is your figurehead on the web, where visitors can find out about your offer. So, you should consider before creating your website: Why a website at all? What do you want to achieve with it? How should your institution be perceived in public? Is your website for information purpose only or do you intent to sell your products on it, maybe later?

In most cases, the need will be justified, but sometimes, business owners don’t just realise it, they pay a lot of money for designing, creating, trashing, redesigning and recreating websites that they don’t even need. Know your purpose, it is not just because your competitor has a website, does it mean that you should have one. If you know exactly why you even need a website in the first place, we can help you and you are allowed to read point 2 below:

 

2.       Who do you want to reach with your website?

Now that you have solid reasons for investing in a website. The next thing to think of is your users. Before you create and maintain your website, you should be aware of which audience you want to target. This is very important, because you have to keep in mind that the website you are building needs to satisfy your customers, existing and new.

Say your are looking to invest in a website for the Mauritian audience. We as a web design company in Mauritius, we know that you will need a website in English, French or maybe both. Know your target audience, create buyer personas, and know what your customers need. We will be able to deliver a better website for your users when knowing this information.

 

3.      What do you have to communicate?

Show your visitors what characterizes your community, facility or project and what offers you have. Think about what your target audience might be interested in and what added value a visit to your website has. Create your menu structure accordingly. But beware! It should not be more than eight menu items, otherwise it becomes too confusing for the reader.

Creating a website is an art, but not the type you are thinking of. The art of web design is to make your users feel welcomed, at home, just like you do to welcome them in your business location, shop or showroom. We recommend you implement a blog and SEO to make your website more accessible to your users. Take a look at our SEO services following the link below:

4.      Who maintains the website and creates new content?

Creating and maintaining a website takes time. That’s why website design is so important. Therefore, be sure in time who should be responsible for the construction, the updates, and maintenance tasks. How often should something new appear on the page? Does the person responsible have enough time to maintain the website and create new content? Only if this is the case, you can successfully create your website and keep it up to date.

With Web Companies we can help you in all aspects of your web design and web development. We are probably the most flexible web design company in Mauritius right now. Do you want us to create, maintain or update your website with fresh content? We have a team of the best content creation expert who will learn your industry and talk about your news for you. If you want to maintain or update your website on your own or have a team in-house to manage it, we create custom access for your administrators, editors and writers.

5.      What will your website have?

A website can be expanded to different degrees. In any case, must be present contact information, products or services and privacy policy. One of the things that depends on a website success is how much time you want and can invest. For example, the Tip of the Week section makes little sense if you can only create new content once a month. Also, notifications and events have to be maintained regularly.

You can also choose to implement marketing strategies on your website. This can be anything from building a list of subscribers or installing web analytics tools to track how your users are interacting with your website.

We hope you now have a clear structure in your mind for the creation of your new website. If you need any further information, contact us:

The new web trends 2018: Dare creativity

As everyone knows, the digital world is constantly evolving from year to year, and 2018 is no exception, far from it! Take advantage of the latest innovations and web trends to bring it up to date. Here’s what will mark 2018 in web design.

1. Animation and interactivity

As we all know, customer experience is becoming increasingly important and redefines sales standards and marketing strategies. Today, it’s no longer enough to praise the quality of your products and services to attract customers. It is now necessary to know how to capture the interest, and I would even say the imagination of customers, to offer them multi-sensory experiences that will captivate them.

This new desire on the part of customers to take part in personalized experiences has been heard by web designers and that is why the animation and interactivity of websites are at the center of their strategy.

Changing colors, shapes, position and even photos: everything is possible. Everything is done to offer customers and Internet users an artistic experience that will charm them.

One of the innovations that will likely resonate with many people is without a doubt the Parallax effect. The latter has the particularity of creating an effect of depth to the different pages of your site. But if you want to stay simple then bet on graphic effects and trends.

2. The contribution of the video

As we have already mentioned in one of our previous articles, video will be an important and even a determining factor in marketing strategies in 2018. More than ever, this means of communication will be the key to exploit to seduce your customers.

This will be the perfect time to be creative and innovative. Surprise people while working on your brand and your notoriety. Attract attention while giving relevant information. That’s the challenge for this new year.

3. Online Shop

Already present on the web for a few years, online stores are still relevant as online shopping continues to increase. Having a showcase in the world of the web where it is possible to expose its products and sell them becomes a must for almost all businesses.

The benefits are many. As a first step, this gives you the opportunity to sell your products at any time of the day and night and to offer additional products during a purchase made by a customer.

Another important fact is that it also gives you a bank of information about your customers thanks to which you can then send them information about your promotions through a newsletter.

Web Trends: Dare to change

In 2018, things move a lot and you will have to do the same to stay in the race. The market is tough and companies will stop at nothing to get their share of the pie. Use creativity and dare to innovate with new web trends!

Top 4 graphical trends for 2018

We have decided to make a Graphical Trend forecasts for 2018 and we’ll see how it works out. To be certain to recommend the most meaningful trends, we asked for the opinion of experts, whether they come from digital, design or communication. Between algorithms, VR, vibrant colors, authenticity and refusal of design, the year promises to be exciting!

1. The return of the reasons

According to experts the patterns – or patterns for English speakers – “are experiencing a revival in all forms: from classical dress to the setting in motion. This is indeed gaining in popularity and can be noticed on many new websites designs.

 

2. Vibrant colors at Spotify

This is the trend of the year, which the majority of interviewees spontaneously cited. A reference that set the tone: Spotify, and its new identity … dating yet from 2015 we might see more and more vibrant colors coming to website as the year passes by.

 

3. Algorithm or creative coding design

For Tristan Macherel, Executive Creative Director at Landor Paris, and president of the Design Jury at the Cannes Lions in 2016, there is “a fundamental trend that designers are not sufficiently trained in: the creation through algorithms, 3D, creative coding “. New techniques that come out of Adobe’s usual Creative Cloud suite (until a future update?) Taught in schools. In view, the creation of identity, packagings that are based on the visualization of data. The idea is not here to digitize forcefully “physical products, the concrete, the touch that people always seek” but to bring innovation behind the scenes, meaningful. Tristan Macherel voluntarily quotes “the home page of Google, layout very simple, and very colorful logo. This almost childish interface masks yet one of the most powerful algorithms in the world.

 

4. The movement

The interfaces will come alive more and more thanks to the new technical possibilities and the talent of the developers. This is a real plus for the user experience, with some surprises, as well as remedies for “wait-time anxiety” – as time passes by more and more website will be interactive and will fill in the waiting time gap for those impatients of the net.

Web Design Mauritius in 2017

Web design is halfway between form and functionality. It is therefore logical that new trends are largely influenced by technology, be it devices, operating systems, browsers or program libraries available on the market. But the recent aspirations of today’s graphic designers go even further, they also influence the very principles and philosophies of design. Recent years have been marked by unprecedented technological advances, including:

The democratization of mobile phones

The appearance of integrated dynamic 3D interface (via WebGL) The adoption of HTML5, CSS3 and the rise of JavaScript frameworks. As well as the increase of the speed of internet download (on computer as on mobile).

Together, these technological advances have created a real turning point in the history of web design, particularly with the emergence of adaptive sites (“responsive” in English) and more generally, mobile oriented designs.

In terms of aesthetics, we cannot ignore the supreme reign of flat design, three years ago. Then it was Google’s turn to introduce Material Design to push us further towards abstract design. In 2017, we have seen that the trends bring us a little closer to reality: 2017 has been the year of hybrids, in forms as well as in colors or functionality, where technology and reality come together to create experience so far unequaled.

Without further ado, here are the 3 trends that we believe have wreaked havoc this year:

1. Menus that defy any navigation paradigm

Since the archaic birth of web design (that is to say, 20 years ago), we have seen two types of navigation: top (menu bar at the top) and sidebar (menu bar at the sides). It was the arrival of responsive design that led to the arrival of the hamburger menu. What would you say to us?

2. Simply delete the menu

No need to tell users how to navigate a website. They know the principle of scrolling and will use it instinctively until they find the information they are looking for. Some graphic designers have chosen to remove almost all menus and let users evolve freely.

3. Adopt the hamburger button and forget everything else

Instead of designing two different menus, one for the desktop version and the other for the mobile version, many websites opt for hamburger navigation. Since the designers realized that it is no longer necessary to occupy space on the screen with a navigation bar. Of course, you do not have to put a hamburger icon … We are seeing more and more graphic designers play on typography to indicate to users where to click to access the menu.

Web Design Mauritius: 2017 on the Web!

Web design remains one field that is always evolving. Meaning that you always have to upgrade your site to fit the current generation of features. This year began loudly on the web design side of things – three dominant features are ruling new designs and this is what our article is all about. Here are the three trends to keep an eye on this year and to maybe add on to your website to be on the trendy side of things.

A video to replace images

The display of large-format video clips to replace banner images is a good way to boost a website. Increasing the speed of web connections allows us to integrate more and more media items in better resolution. The html5 video tags allow us to easily integrate them and ensure a good cross-browser compatibility. The only barrier to this trend: Apple mobile devices do not support automatic video playback to preserve battery life.

“Landing pages”

One very common feature being used nowadays remains the Landing Page. Landing pages allow several companies with a smaller budget to maintain a high-quality presence on the Web. They also allow a company that already has a web presence to launch a targeted campaign or online offensive and increase the conversion of visits – thus not only increasing their visibility but also increasing their gain in clients.

Endless-scroll pages

Web pages without a scroll bar presenting all the content inside the initial window are becoming more and more popular. The scrolling action is often re-used in these pages to advance the content, which is built as a story or timeline. On these pages, you will often find a multitude of animations and transitions to reveal the content. These pages look like a book or a brochure and cause a wow effect.
