Types of website design
Here are the different types of websites:
The homepage is your site’s main hub and serves as the face of a brand.
Helps site visitors get to different areas of the site, and it can also serve as a conversion funnel. It’s important to remember the purpose of the homepage as the main navigation and point of interest for site visitors.
A magazine website features articles, photos and videos that are informational and educational. The magazine website type works well for informational websites, particularly publications from universities and organizations.
An e-commerce website is an online shopping destination where users can purchase products or services from your company.
Because the system is interconnected, sales, logistics and marketing are all kept apprised on what’s working well. e-commerce platforms offer several templates that match the needs of nearly any business type.
A blog features regularly updated articles, photos and videos.
They started with more casual, personal content compared to magazines. Adding expert content improves the overall credibility of a company or an individual. Blogs also provide material for social media posts and email campaigns.
A portfolio website allows creative professionals a place for showcasing their best work. This is perfect for artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, furniture builders you name it.
A landing page is a specific page created for a marketing campaign that drives visitors to take a specific action.
The content on a landing page should be limited and point toward the call-to-action (CTA) you’d like the user to take. Allow plenty of white space around your CTA and save elements not related to the purpose of that campaign for other pages.
Social media websites
No matter who your target audience is, you’ll probably find them on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Snap chat or LinkedIn.
Although you can’t redesign the platforms themselves, you do have some control over the look of your page, and you can create content (entertaining videos,info graphics,memes) that drives social media shares.
Directory and contact pages
A directory or contact page is a place where users can connect with you or others.
This type of website works well when you want to list a repository of businesses or people within an organization. For example, a local restaurant directory features eateries in the area with menus, price ranges, phone number and reviews.
