Web Design & E-Commerce
Did you know that complex websites with a lot of flashy moving elements actually drive prospective customers away? Ditto for sites that load slowly or are hard to navigate.
There is a specific field of research, called Web Usability, that has discovered which design factors make websites effective. Bennaco designs its websites based on published usability guidelines. We believe that the way to give you a solid return on your investment is to design you a website that people will visit, use, and enjoy. The development process involves these steps:
explore your products or services with you in detail
ask you to share the URLs of some websites you like, and tell us what you like about them
find out how you will want to maintain (update) your site. Who will do it, and how often? Depending on your needs, we'll explain your website maintenance options and design a site that will support your choices.
agree on delivery timelines (we stick by them!)
develop a site structure that will present your products or services effectively
write the web text and optimize it for search. (What good is a website if no one finds it?)
once the information content is complete, only THEN will we design a visual package that fits and supports your message
show you the proposed design and fine tune it as needed to meet your needs
combine the text and design into a fully functioning website
implement any special features, like e-commerce or mailing list (newsletter) management
At every step of the way, you'll be seeing the results and giving feedback, so there is absolutely no risk of being presented with a site you hate, then being charged for "revisions". You will see and approve every stage of the emerging website. The end result will be an effective site that you'll love.
If you're looking for a website that focuses on clear, effective delivery of information, . First the message, then the packaging. That's our motto.
