E. Studios Website
Of course we created our own website!
Our website has been designed for simplicity so that our customers will easily be able to find what they need. It’s also completely mobile and tablet friendly!
Prior to actual website development, the team needed to create a functional and appealing design. The image above was the initial sketch of how the URLs would be structured. Often this stage may take a few iterations. A lot of amateur business owners will skip this stage as they only see the website like an advertisement piece placed on the newspaper but the website actually has a lot more potential and not paying attention to your linking can cost you more for your business.
We used a content management system (CMS) called WordPress. Just so we’re on the same page, WordPress has two types: the blog version and the standalone version. The standalone version can be installed in your hosting while the blog is restricted and managed by WordPress themselves. We simply needed the standalone WordPress to create the “shell” of our website without having to start from scratch. This greatly speeds up the process but there are still a few technical aspects that our developers needed to check.
- Functionality – the design looks great on paper and on a basic interactive plan but will it work properly once it is online?
- User Experience – can our users find what they want and is everything easy to understad?
- Responsiveness – WordPress has a natural structure for responsiveness but certain customisations still need to be checked.
Our website was planned to be rolled-out in a few stages. The first stage involved a landing page. Yes! A single-page design. It was quick and practical and it didn’t need too much; just a single menu at the top that links to every section on the page. This is always my recommended layout for people who just want a website but don’t really need to touch it. We did it ourselves with our site since the team was already operating and had little time to complete a full-blown development.
After six months, we decided to expand the website by adding the service pages, About Us page, Contact Us page and a Terms of Service page. Then after another six months, we added a Store to show our standard pricing. This is the beauty of WordPress; you can expand it to many different avenues. You don’t have to get all the features at once, just make a plan and follow it.
For now, our team has continued to enhance and improve our website. If you have any feedback for us, feel free to send us a message.
