Web designing is the essence of every website. With the availability of around 206, 026, 787 independent websites, it has become really challenging for web designers to make a website design that will stand out from rest of the sites. For a beginner, it’s even more challenging to be at par.
There are plenty of easy-to-learn software and online tools to help beginners in learning details of web designing. You don’t have to worry about the cost as many of these are free of cost or low cost tools. With little efforts and sheer determination, you could become a persona of excellence.
You could enroll yourself to a web design course that will help you in learning various aspects of web designing. You can take this course in person or over Internet. There are many online web designing schools that offer a wide variety of online web design courses. You can easily learn designing directly from your home itself. Before applying for a course, know the purpose of your education. If you want to get a degree or diploma, go for some reputed web design school. It would really be useful if you compare some selected web design courses. Look for duration of the course, cost, course details, reputation of the school or included study materials. This will definitely help you to choose the right course.
Useful and easily available web design tools are:
HTML Editors: Adobe dreamweaver is an industry standard, commercial application among web designers. It has rich features and it easily integrates with other popular products such as Photoshop and Illustrator. Other good graphic editors are Nvu and PageBreeze.
Drawing and Image Editing: Pen/Pencil drawing programs are important. GIMP is powerful software for image composition, photo retouching and image authoring. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. Photoshop is a great graphic editor but is paid one. It is the most popular in design community but this is not great for image manipulation. ColorZilla and ColorLovers are great to create any background or pattern.
Testing and Tutorial: W3C is the best tutorial site from where you can learn web design. It offers validation tools to test errors in CSS or HTML.
Choosing the right e-commerce solution for your online business can help you convert more sales. Having the right tools and applications, integrated in your e-commerce website, will help you compete more efficiently in the Internet market. There are so many existing and emerging companies in the online business world; do we remember all the names? No, just a few names, that are unique in design and functionality, are etched in our brain.
When choosing an e-commerce template for your business, you must choose a thought-out design concept. This will make your website stand out from the rest of the websites. You must ask yourself some basic questions before buying an e-commerce solution:
•Is this a reliable e-commerce solution?
•Does it come with flexible design options to suit my requirements?
•Which shopping cart is the best for me?
•What would be the payment gateway?
•Are they providing a customizable and easy to use e-store?
If you plan to operate your online business in more than one country, you should look for features such as multi language and multi currency support in the transactions. It would be great if you can get free live chat and other value added services in your website.
You should also choose the correct design for the website. All e-commerce applications have their own template System, be it OsCommerce, Magento or ZenCart, you can find templates for all of them.
You can get free e-commerce templates on various online template sites. You can buy good quality e-commerce templates for as low as $20.
A shopping site is an e-commerce site. An e-commerce site is more than just installing a shopping cart and uploading products to sell on it. For a successful shopping website, you need to make a good site plan and then to execute this plan. This planning would cover your website budget, product type, e-commerce platform and the latest features you want in your site.
Open source e-commerce software would be a good cost effective solution for your business. Choosing and installing the most appropriate shopping cart is the most important aspect of any e-commerce website. After you have decided on your product type, the next step would be to choose your shopping cart. There are many powerful and established shopping cart platforms available. Some of the popular and widely used shopping cart platforms are OpenCart, Magento, and Prestashop. Shopify is also popular but it is not open source, it is a paid shopping cart solution.
A shopping site’s design should focus on the products not on the site design. As soon as you open the site, your immediate attention should fall on the products. Background color and font type and colors should be carefully chosen so that they do not make products look dull. Site should be easy to navigate and users should be able to find their products quickly and conveniently. There should be sufficient information about each product regarding its features, price and other specifications.
Other important features that a shopping site should have are:
Wish list: This feature allows your customers to save and create the list of the products that they liked on the website. They might not buy these products but can consider them in the future when they again visit your site. Users can share this list with their friends also who want to buy a gift for them.
Facility to Track Shipped Items: There should be some feature by which your customers can track their shipment. They should be able to know the status of their ordered products and services.
Ability to Download Downloadable Products as soon as the Payment is processed: Don’t make your customers wait. They would like to download their products or services immediately they have paid for. Don’t involve any kind of offline process at that time.
Add to Favorites: With this feature, logged in users can add a record or page to a personal list of favorites by clicking on “Add to Favorites” feature.
Ability to Share Products on various Social Media Sites: Users should be able to share any product they find interesting on popular social media platforms such as Facebook. It will give extra publicity to your products.
Product Reviews on Product Pages: There should be a column for product reviews. Buyers should be able to comment on a product. Or you can ask your customers for a product review. Many customers look for product reviews before they buy a product.
What’s the difference between website templates and cheap websites? Web templates are fully realised ready to use web designs that can be customised by the user: so they’re effectively working web sites where you add the content as it applies to your business/objective. They’re economical because we only need to build them once – you do the rest. That’s not the same as a cheap web site, which is cheap just to try and tempt you to buy. A cheap site is still built for you – so for the same kind of price as web templates, you’re getting a site that has been built from the ground up just for you. Sound good? Not when you think about the amount of work we’ve been able to do on all of our website templates for the same money. Here at www.templatekingdom.com, we charge a rate for web templates based on the amount of work it takes to create each template site: because we sell the same templates to thousands of customers, we can charge a seriously low price per template for a lot of functionality. In effect, buying web templates means you can pay cheap website prices for properly built, solid, functional pages – because the cost of us building them is spread over multiple customers. Unlike cheap websites, which are just, well, cheap. For our full range of website templates (we’ve got 5000+ unique templates for 53 industry categories) check out www.templatekingdom.com.
