What makes your business plan truly tangible and accessible is the website. It forms the interface between the consumer and the seller.
For a newcomer, to establish a potent website can be a challenging task. Several online platforms exist to help you build your website.
For a business that is just gaining pace, picking a platform can be a challenging task.
Here are some factors to consider before you select the best bang for your buck.
- What are your requirements?
Instead of directly looking up all the available options, you must first brainstorm with your team as to what you will need from your potential platform.
These requirements can be matched with the features of various platforms, before finally taking your pick.
- What are the design features?
User-friendly appearance scores over a complex appearance irrespective of the other features. If your dashboard/home page does not direct the user in the right direction, they will likely be lost and migrate to other vendors.
The design is the key feature of any website- picking the one that suits your business best is the key here.
- Templates v/s your own build
Another factor to consider is whether you can invest in a full-fledged web development endeavor instead of using the tools available already.
Some ideas require a unique build that cannot really be served by what we have online today. It is your call to invest in your build and maintenance versus a ready-made template available online.
- What is the nature of your business?
Some businesses work with digital deliverables while some, with physical. In either scenario, the logistics, management and working greatly vary. A detailed study of your working strategy will hint at the perfect platform you require.
- How do you plan to pay?
If you plan to use a third party payment processor, you must know exactly which platform is compatible with this medium.
Analyse if paying a monthly amount rather than a percentage of your total earning to the platform is a more viable business option.
