Congratulations! You’ve taken the plunge into the online world. This article is written by the Pava web team, and we’ll be taken you through the simple steps to take before going to any web design company you might choose. So let’s waste no time and dive right in!
Copy, commonly known as text on your website is the back bone of your website. It’ll engage your customers keeping them on your website for longer. So make sure your content is print ready for your web design company to add on straight in.
2. Domain Name
It might sound silly, but we see it all the time. You MUST purchase your domain name (website name – www.domain.com) as soon as possible. If not, you could lose out to competitor and be left searching for a domain that might not best suit your company. Why not sure for your domain at www.lcn.com.
One extremely common mistake is to rely on your web designer to provide your images. Here’s why – being the busy owner or marketing employee, you know the business best. So find the images that best suit your business, and save time by reducing the amount of time explaining to a designer what it is you’re looking for. However, be sure to have the rights to use those images on your website.
Before starting your website you’re going to need a logo. We’ve had many customers come to us to begin a website, but how will your customers know who you are without one! So, make sure you have your logo ready before you begin looking into websites.

Research, Research, Research! It’s crucial to understand your competitors. Browse large brands in your industry and local competitors; get a feel for what all sized companies are doing. It’s important to understand how the big companies design their websites, after all they have teams of people working on their websites daily, so you can guess they know what to do.
