Know your brand before you begin

Before attempting to design a website, businesses must first identify their core brand values. It is essential that these values are reflected in their online presence while ensuring they are meeting the demands of their target audience. As a business, everything you do or say must send the correct message to your audience.

One way to achieve results is to invest in market research where you can ask your target audience what they like to look at. Also, by viewing your competitors' pictures and their visual language you can start to improve your own, and see what works and what doesn't.

·        Timeliness - how new is the image?

·        Uniqueness - is your image one of a kind?
