There are probably thousands of websites on the internet that offer exactly the same product as you for probably a very competative price. So why should a customer stick around to see what you offer?
Aesthetics: People are interested in what they find visually appealing.
This is where the design of your website plays an important role, you are here reading this possibly because you like the design of the site, it caught your eye and you decided to investigate. Another reason linked to why you are here is the link that you clicked on to get here. Either 7th Dimension studios appeared in a web search engine result, or you followed a link from another site that you possibly liked the design for.
So once you have firstly got the viewer on to your website, and the design has caught their eye, what next?
Well there are a few important factors to consider at this stage...
- Are you showing what your company has to offer?
- Is your best/most important product forefront?
- Navigation is very important ( can the user find exactly what they want within a few clicks?)
- Is the Contact page easily accessible?
- Is the site neat?
- Does the site fit within the theme of your business?
- Does your website say 'you care about your product'?
When Designing your site we take in to consideration all of these factors to give you an easily navigational and aesthetically appealing end product. view examples in portfolio

A basic site would only generally develop the customer experience, where an advanced site would develop both the customer experience and the site owner's management console.
In the management console you as the owner will be able to edit dynamic content, maintain your Meta Data (keywords and site descriptions for search engines), and manage your products for sale. (edit, add, delete, attach photos and videos)
You will also be able to set usernames and passwords to allow employees to access and edit cartain information (controlled by the privilages you set their account to.)
