Tips on Building a Great Business Website

 A businesses website is fundamental to its overall success. A badly put together sire, with a lot of outdated and irrelevant content in a seemingly incoherent manner, is not going to get you anywhere. It will definitely reflect negatively against you. If you have not given your website much thought until now, or if it is pretty basic and the content has not been updated for a while, it is time you paid it much more attention. Pretty much all businesses worth their salt have a great website. And if you need ideas, just check out your competitors. You're bound to find something suitable. Okay, so here are some tips on building your own business website:

Site Plan

Before you start creating content and taking photos, you need to work out exactly what you need. It is probably worth doing a little investigation into similar websites and discovering more about how theft is laid out and all the information that is required. You need, in the first instance, a great home page. Your home page is what entices your potential customer to stay. You then need the home page to have a logically laid out menu structure. You will want a menu with no more than seven items, any more than this is too much and distracting. So you need to carefully consider why a customer will be landing on your website and ensure your home page reflect this, and your menu headings do too. What you want is a logical and easy to navigate site. You will also want to consider the functions such as a shop, and live chat. There are a lot of places you can go to to get help on your website, such as WebX360.


Your Content 

Relevance, preciseness and ease of reading are absolutely key. Remember that less is more when it comes to content. You do not want to have all the essential information lost within a ton of text. If you believe that more content is better, you are mistaken. You are far better off having concise text with a relevant matching image rather than a page of waffle. No one has the time to search through that for the golden nuggets they are after. It is also important to use relevant images, vlogs, gifs, etc. Anything that distracts from the point is to be removed. 


SEO

You will also want to ensure that your content is optimized for the search engine. SEO (search engine optimization) is an essential part of your marketing strategy, as it determines how a search engine will find you. What you need to do is look at your customer data and determine how your customer communicates, the language they use, words, phrases etc. What are they likely to type into the search engine? Ensure your pages have these words and phrases in their content. Another way to ensure that your content is always updated and relevant to help the search engines fins you is to have a blog that is loaded with keywords.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
