The youth always love technology because it’s a market dominated by young people. In this market, young individuals have an advantage, as their knowledge, planning and creativity outweigh the need for experience. That’s why we see successful companies like Facebook and Google in the USA or Seven Seas in Kenya, all founded by individuals under 30.
Today, I’m addressing you, a budding innovator who wants to launch a website for your company but lacks experience in basic web design. Let’s explore some important considerations:
Efficiency trumps beauty: While everyone desires visually appealing websites with captivating graphics, it’s crucial to prioritize functionality. Focus on designing a website that is easy to use and navigate. Incorporating excessive design elements can increase website planning costs without necessarily improving usability. For example, Bing’s daily wallpapers may be admired for their beauty, but users still prefer Google for their search queries.
More accessories mean longer loading times: When planning a website, remember that all the mentioned accessories require bandwidth. Bandwidth determines how fast a site loads and affects its hosting cost. This is why very few websites open with a theme song. It’s not due to a lack of creativity or royalty fees for a soundtrack, but rather the need to prioritize loading speed. Consider the various devices users may access your site with, including older computers with slow modem connections. Users with limited data plans should also be able to browse your site without excessive data usage.
Your visitors shouldn’t see this page for too long.
To use an example of this Kenya web hosting company’s website,You can see that the product and graphics maintain a high standard and can load on any format. It’s not because it can’t be improved further, but we must remember that not everyone in the region is connected via high-speed cables.
