10 Tips and Tricks to Make Your Web Development Project Run Smoothly

Make-Your-Web-Development-Project-Run-Smoothly

“I’ve never done this before.” – “Where to begin?” – “Why is this so difficult?”

Creating a comprehensive new website for your organization or even updating what you currently have can be a daunting process. The web development process can actually be quite easy and fun. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you make the process run smoothly and remove most of the bumps along the way.

1. Domain Name

Be sure to purchase a domain (www.domain.com) name that clearly connects to your name or service. If your organization is a nonprofit you can also purchase (.ORG). Keep in mind, you can have several domains that point to the same website.

2. Inspiration

Starting from scratch can be difficult; an easy way to draw inspiration is to look at websites that you admire. You shouldn’t copy it but you can surely find elements that you like and use them as inspiration for your website. Create a list of links to websites and pages that inspire you.

3. Content

Before we start, you will first need to collect and categorize your content, i.e. sitemap, copy, photos, videos and any other pertinent info. Start with a sheet of paper and draw, sketch, scribble and doodle your ideas – like you are visiting your site-to-be!

4. What do you want your site to do?

Your site doesn’t need to be an e-brochure. Do you want to drive sales or donations? You could also use it as a platform to share blogs and articles or videos. Your site can host resources like downloadable documents or even have a store where customers can buy your products.

5. Images and Video

Each page and section in your website usually requires an image. While stock photography is available, we highly recommend using your own images to bring the site to life. Video is even better as this is largely the way media is being consumed – adding video is a big plus for your site content.

6. Calls to Action

A way to make the goals of your website come to life is with calls to action (CTA). A call to action might be “sign up to our newsletter” and then a form where someone can add an email address. Do you want to collect donations? Tell them so with a “donate now” button.

7. Add a Face

New businesses or organizations often get caught up in trying to make their model look big, but that’s not always helpful. A lot of web users want to know that there’s a real person who’s going to be working with them. Including a good photo of yourself or your team is almost always a smart idea.

8. Testimonials

Testimonials can be a great way to build trust and credibility around what you are doing. Focus on a few high value testimonials rather than a lot of bland recommendations. These do not need to be a page long; a few lines to a paragraph is plenty. Remember to have a high quality digital image of the person writing the review.

9. Mobile Friendly

Most web traffic is consumed on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Making sure that your site is mobile friendly and responsive is very important. You will end up losing a lot of site visits if your site is difficult to navigate on mobile.

10. Maintenance

Once your site is complete, the work is not over. Your site requires hosting, security maintenance and updates. You will also need to update your content to keep the site fresh so that people return often. Put a plan in place to make sure that your site stays current.

These tips are not rigid rules and every site development is different, but they’re worth keeping in mind as you begin the process. Faith Branding design professionals will help you make the right decision as you take a step towards creating your impactful brand experience.

Choosing a Color for Your Brand

Here is quick guide that will help you in choosing the best color for your organization.

CHOOSING A COLOR FOR YOUR BRAND

Color Psychology Chart

“Having a basic understanding of the psychology of colors is vital to designing an effective logo and brand” says Karri Cole, Senior Designer of Faith Branding.

Here is quick guide that will help you in choosing the best color for your organization.

Choosing colors for your organization shouldn’t be about your favorite color, but rather what you want your logo to say about your church, ministry or organization.

People are very responsive to visual stimuli, and colors are one of the major defining factors in that response. On a conscious and subconscious level, colors convey meaning. In design, we use color psychology to bring resonance to our designs – the most important place to instill this process is in the field of logo design.

Although it’s difficult to determine exactly how a certain color will impact your brand, it is possible to make some broad sweeps to help you narrow all of your options.

WHAT DIFFERENT COLORS MEAN

    • Red implies passion, energy, danger or aggression; warmth and heat. Choosing red for your logo can make it feel more dynamic.
    • Orange is often seen as the color of innovation and modern thinking. It also carries connotations of youth, fun, affordability and approachability.
    • Yellow requires cautious use as it has some negative connotations including its signifying of cowardice and its use in warning signs. However it is sunny, warm and friendly.
    • Green is commonly used when a company wishes to emphasize their natural and ethical credentials, especially with such products as organic and vegetarian foods. Other meanings ascribed to it include growth and freshness, and it’s popular with financial products too.
    • Blue is one of the most widely used colors in corporate logos. It implies professionalism, serious mindedness, integrity, sincerity and calm. Blue is also associated with authority and success, and for this reason is popular with both financial institutions and government bodies.
    • Purple speaks to us of royalty and luxury. It has long been associated with the church, implying wisdom and dignity, and throughout history it has been the color of wealth and riches.
    • Black is a color with a split personality. On the one hand it implies power and sophistication, but on the other hand it is associated with villainy and death. More mundanely, most logos will need a black and white version for use in media in which color is not available.
    • White is generally associated with purity, cleanliness, simplicity and naiveté. In practical terms, a white logo will always need to stand in a colored field to make it show up on a white background. Many companies will choose to have a colored version and a white version of their logos.
    • Brown has masculine connotations and is often used for products associated with rural life and the outdoors.
    • Pink can be fun and flirty, but its feminine associations means it is often avoided for products not specifically targeted at women.

These associations are not rigid rules, but they’re worth keeping in mind as you make your color choices. Faith Branding design professionals will help you make the right decision as you take a step towards creating your impactful brand experience. Click here to receive a free consultation for your branding project.
