Starter Website Page Hierarchy

Our starter website design provides a menu structure that is logical and easy to navigate. Having a simple navigation menu helps visitors to find what they are looking for quickly and easily.  Our website design is based on insights gained from our proven website design & development services that we use for online assignments.   

A website hierarchy and typical content density & layouts for a starter website are shown below:

Header

  • Header with logo, contact details,  website navigation and social share. 

Home page

A home page for a typical starter website design is described below. 

The  image opposite is an example home page. 

  • Section 1 – Hero image, banner text & call to action.
  • Section 2 – Challenges your website addresses.
  • Section 3 – Services that meet market need (with links to the service page).
  • Section 4 – Case studies.
  • Section 5 – testimonials.
  • Section 6- Enquiry form and data collection.
 

The example broadly aligns with the bullet list. The icons in the services block link to a specific service page. Icons provide easy site navigation. The ‘more information’ section gives contact details and an enquiry form.  A subscription button is provided. 

The header and footer repeats throughout the website. The footer includes social media sharing buttons.

The website design provides scope for creativity, re-ordering of sections and for content variety that include video clips and your own photographs.

Services navigation page

The services page is an opportunity to present your portfolio of services in a compelling way using copy and images. 

The example opposite shows three services that links to individual service pages. Note the call to action that carries into each page. 

We plan for the following layout.

  • Hero image & text.
  • Services block with icons and summary text.
  • Call to action.
 
The design and content is flexible and agreed at the start of the assignment or as change control during the development.

Blog Posts

Having blog posts is an options we recommend for a starter website design.  It involves writing one or more blogs to announce the new website for sharing on social media and to set the standard for future posts. 

 Blog posts are a option that we recommend  where we write create content and upload posts. This can involve attending events to create professional photographs and video clips.

The image opposite shows a post for an event we attended to create videos, professional photographs and copy.  

As the number and variety of posts grows, posts are categorised so that visitors can sort what they want to read and watch.

Recommended Website design enhancements

Adding pages and post to the initial build is inexpensive.  We source photographs from stock images sites and on occasion we may need to charge for commercial use, but this is very much the exception. 

We recommend that your starter website design choice is strengthened with our SEO site architecture service.  This uses market and competitor research combined with keyword and SEO research to design your site map and to rank in Google when combined with ongoing SEO.   

Our included copy editing can be developed to include copy writing were we craft the text content for the website or for sections within the site.  

Web design workshops are ideal for problem scoping, planning and problem solving.  

SEO content creation and website familiarity training is advised to equip your team for success.

Finally, we recommend a personal web design pricing quote for your website project to take advantage of promotions, charity discounts and prefered projects.
