Your website is your opportunity to showcase your products and services globally and the idea that it just has to exist and ‘be there’ for people to start piling in and buy what you’re selling could not be further from the truth.

It is very interesting & informative post for everyone who wants to start or already stared a website including me.Mostly I like your image or picture which is very helpful to understand your points instantly. I like specially the part of article was technical requirements & backend. Thank you!
Thanks Akshay. Its feels great that you found the infographic interesting.
Thanks for this amazing post with a unique way to express. I was just wondering about the slider, is it really necessary for my home page?
Why don’t i use the new single page view style like big it compaies? They are more attactive then sliders.
What do you think?
Slider and single image have pros and cons. Some people do not like sliders because it can slow a website but other hand having just one image may limit the website on how much you can communicate to your potential customers. I usually suggest that if you sell or promote just one product/service/concept then it might bet better to use one image but if you sell multiple products/services then sliders might be better for you.
This is truly an amazing post. I like how the illustrations have been used to convey the message better. Personally, I am a huge fan of the online chat service. I think navigating becomes a lot easier. Also, the job gets done faster. Other than that, I think every site must be user-friendly and simple. If it’s an online shopping site, then the payment gateway has to be quick and hassle free.
Absolutely agree with you. The most important feature every website must have is that it should be user-friendly and easy to navigate and find the information that a reader is looking for.
I don’t understand why you say flash elements should be avoided in all kinds of sites. It cannot be generalized. It might be right only for content based sites or blogs. Sites like bet365 that are listed companies are using flash entirely to build their site. It is a site with millions of transactions happening every day. The site creators say that using flash makes the site more secure against hacking. Flash has more client sides concern but html 5 has more server side concerns. “Avoid using flash” is the common thing I see across the web. But I don’t know why?
I think its important to note that we are talking about small businesses in this infographic. Having a site in flash is fine on desktops but the same site would not load on mobile devices like iphones. So, you would then have to make a separate mobile version of the website. This can add to the cost for small business owners. Instead its less costly, and less time consuming to do a mobile responsive website in html without flash.
Security is a bigger concern for sites like bet365 because of how many online transactions happen everyday on it. But for a small business having an informational website its not a major concern because not much online transactions happen on their site.
A must read for them who are running small businesses and wants to promote their products through their website. Great Infographics
Glad that you found this helpful, Sateesh.
