Creation of a website is not just the duty of the web designer. In fact, website that are only created by a designer seldom taste success on the world wide web. A successful website is one that is a joint-effort of both the client and the service provider i.e. wherein bot the client and the design team, sit together, have a brainstorming session and come to mutual conclusions to decide the course of the website design project.

Define your audience and their needs
Defining the purpose and objectives of your website should be your first step. Focus on what you want your website to achieve. Create a profile of your intended audience and try to understand their needs and tastes, and design the site with them at the forefront of your mind at all times.

It’s taken a decade of baby steps, but the Web is finally starting to grow up. We’ve banished the bleak days of brochureware back when companies thought that scanning their yearly reports page by page into half megabyte GIFs was the way to build an online presence.

A slow website will not only lose a current visitor but potential future visitors, as well, causing a decrease in conversion rates.
