Attributes of a Successful Website
Your website is considered your “online footprint”. There is also hosting, which is the location where your website is stored and is responsible for ensuring your website loads in a timely manner for visitors to your site. So what are the attributes of a successful website? I have outlined them below.
- Efficient response time when loading site
- Professional display and clean looking (IE images scaled properly, no typographical errors)
- Ease of navigation
- Use of a Content Management System (explained in detail below)
- Website content is high quality and provides value to the visitor
If you can execute these 5 attributes, you will be on your way to running a successful and profitable website. In order to proceed however, you need to be utilizing a platform that will simplify the process and turn your ideas into a fully functioning website. I recommend WordPress for it’s ease of use and functionality. You can actually create a FREE WordPress site by entering a domain name in the box below (how cool is that?)
WordPress – An Authentic Content Management System (CMS)
I’m sure many of you have heard of WordPress as it is the most widely used content management system with over 23% of the top 10 million websites created by WordPress as of January 2015. You are actually looking at a website created by WordPress right now! (and no, I do not have a computer science degree)
It wasn’t too long ago though that you almost needed a computer science degree as programming knowledge was essential in order to code HTML, which prevented many entrepreneurs from creating their own site. With the introduction of Content Management Systems such as WordPress, it provided the tools for ANYONE to build a website and succeed. No more hours spent manually coding HTML! (cue happy dance music)
