What to Know About Website Design for Tech Companies

Incorporating factors such as user experience, graphic design, coding, and software design, website design as a whole is the process of creating and maintaining a website for a company’s customers.

For technology companies, you are going to want a website that is easy to navigate and understandable to visitors who may not be familiar with your brand. The goal of creating a sleek, user-friendly website is so prospective customers can easily access your products and services and, ultimately, become clients.

Web Design FAQs for IT Companies and More

Want to start redesigning your website, but don’t know where to start? Our team wants to help.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding the web design process, as well as some of the top things we recommend for your company going forward.

Why should I invest in website design?

User experience and compatibility are crucial to not just successful tech and IT websites, but all websites across any industry niche. That is why it is important to invest in creating and maintaining a better website now.

Plus, it is important to note that every $1 invested in UX-friendly web design possesses a return on investment (ROI) of $100. And as digital media and marketing continue to expand, we must adapt and accommodate these changes.

Why should my website be mobile-friendly?

With roughly 58.16% of web traffic globally originating from mobile devices (as compared to 39% from desktops and 2% from tablets), it is safe to say that mobile searches are the leading generator of searches as a whole. Having a website that caters to that audience – especially from a lead generation perspective – is imperative.

How do I incorporate an email signup into my website?

Creating an email marketing strategy is a great way to convert additional leads through your website. Whether you are sending out a newsletter or making an announcement with a strong call to action, it is important to be readily equipped to get the job done.

With that in mind, some of the platforms that we recommend incorporating into your overall website design include MailChimp and Constant Contact. If you are looking for an email marketing management system that includes a variety of additional features for tracking website success, our team also recommends using HubSpot.

How long will it take for my website to land on the first page of Google?

Though website design is important for ranking in search engines, it is not the only factor that will help you rank on the first page. If you are looking to completely optimize your website so your interface and content are search-engine-friendly, we have the solutions for you.

Some of the additional digital marketing tactics you can use to further increase your tech company’s ranking in search engines include:

Even after incorporating one or more of these digital marketing tactics into your strategy, it might take anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple of months to see results. Don’t be discouraged if this is the case, though; it is completely normal, as you need to give search engines time to thoroughly crawl and index your updated site.

Why We Recommend WordPress for Your Business

Did you know that 42% of the web is comprised of WordPress websites? That is because it is easy to use, visually appealing, and includes a variety of tools to customize your tech or SaaS website to your liking.

We recommend WordPress to everyone looking to redesign their website because of the following:

  • The block editor feature – Want to design a website but you’re not an experienced web developer? No problem! WordPress has developed a drag-and-drop feature so you can simply add features, such as patterns, graphics, forms, and more to your website.
  • Custom theme development – With thousands of themes to choose from, you’ll be able to tailor your website to match your brand’s look and vision. Choose from various designs and colors to find the results that best fit your needs. Best of all, these designs and layouts are mobile-friendly, eliminating the hassle of optimizing your site to accommodate different devices.
  • Numerous tools to choose from – Depending on the goals of your website, WordPress has all the tools (called plugins) you could possibly need in one place. This includes design, editing, SEO, marketing, monetization, statistics, and even overall site management tools.
  • Each site has a built-in blog – A blog is a perfect way to boost the digital marketing initiatives on your website. For those still curious about how to rank on the first page of Google, incorporating SEO strategies and sharing your industry expertise on your blog is a great way to gain relevant organic traffic.

Shopify for Ecommerce Websites

If you happen to sell your software or services online in a store format, we also are skilled in building custom Shopify stores! We recommend that anyone in the ecommerce industry choose Shopify as their content management system for similar reasons above for WordPress.

The Tech Companies We Help With Our Web Design Services

Here are just some of the types of tech companies that could greatly benefit from a web redesign:

  • Software/SaaS– As a software provider, you will want to make sure that your website reflects your products’ abilities while having strong calls to action that encourage users to make a purchase or schedule a consultation.
  • Technical products – Ecommerce websites require special attention to detail that allows users to easily make purchases. Proper marketing aspects need to be built in as well to help drive traffic.
