The first step to create a website

BeginningIt can seem like a daunting task to create a website. There are so many things to consider in the design structure and functionality. But, if you take this first step, the rest will be easier.

Create a website around your message

There is a little debate about what the first step is in the development of a website. If you ask designers, they might tell you to design first. If you ask developers, they will probably tell you to code first. What’s the right answer? Neither.

The first thing you need to do is answer the question, “what’s your message?” Every website should do or say something. It should provide a service or describe your product or service.

Create your content

Once you know what your message is, you can start building your content. This is where the typing begins. Develop a strong message and work around an outline of your key ideas. This will help you structure your content for better SEO and a more organized website.

A designer would have to create a design around your content and a developer needs content to start creating your pages. So, whether you decide to design first or develop first, you will need to have your content ready. And creating your content is clearly the first step to create a website.
