See below for some handy hints to get you started in the right direction.
The Home Page –Get straight to the point of what you can do to assist your target audience. Make this information pleasant to read… use sympathetic fonts and sizes. Also consider “other” viewers who may be interested but who are not necessarily players.
Remember that correct grammar and spelling are essential components of a successful site. (Think how shocked you would be if your newspaper contained such errors)
The design MUST translate to smart phones and all things portable.
A scrolling page can work well – if you are just doing a single page and is definitely worth considering as it engages your audience more and more – they do not need to click to further pages because it is all there.

Websites designed for our clients
Good Web Design – Information Architecture
WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE / GOAL IN WANTING A WEBSITE
1. What problem(s) are we solving?
2. Who needs it?
3. What is the site for?
Focus on User experience. Create fictional user scenario ie what does the user hope to accomplish? What might cause friction? Make up a story about the potential user going to your website.
THIS IS WHAT THE CUSTOMER/YOUR VISITOR WILL BE THINKING
1. Am I in the right place?(You need to assure them they are)
2. Do they have what I am looking for?(Make it easy to find)
3. … or Do they have something better?(Give some options)
4. What do I do now?(Give clear CTAs)
PICTURE YOUR IDEAL CUSTOMER and design your site specifically for them
First-List their goals and their likely use of your offering. Next-Create User Flows by imagining situations when they:
know what they are looking for
TYPES OF PAGES
Navigation (menu/helpers) >>
Consumption (find out more) >>
Interaction (order/action) >>
The top menu does not EVER vary. Horizontal is best unless there are tons of choices and the top menu cannot display them, only then is it ok to use a vertical menu.
CREATE LOGICAL PAGES
Have your actual content available in writing before you start designing.Map tasks to individual pages.Each Page should:
1. Help the user accomplish 1 specific task
2. Make the next step easy to access
(ie create a relationship between many small tasks)
CREATE SITEMAPS AND WIREFRAMES
Using Cards as pages and subpages, arrange a site-map and then test as much as possible – use 15 testers … until the Customer IS in the right place because you have what they are looking for, and possibly even something better…. And now they are going to convert by applying/buying/registering.
METADATA(information about information)
Compile Great Content:
THE most likely details that need to be included – based on user interest/needs (and make it really comprehensive). If you are selling something describe it in every possible way, because how you see it may not be the same as how your customer does.
Before I begin my website – I know:
All my content is written
My site’s goal and my target audience
My competitors + good/bad design ideas
Which plugins my site will require
My budget Money + Time
Shipping / Payment / Legals
