Web pages are a fundamental part of every modern business, today we will see what is the process to create them.
The first thing you need to know is what types exist and which is the one that best suits what you need.
Types of web page
They provide information about a company. They usually consist of a homepage, contact page and in many cases a news section or blog.
See an example Here
These are designed not only to display information about the company, but to introduce and display products in a way that customers can see, rate, comment on and even buy online.

they are made up of a set of dynamic tools and functions for various areas.
These normally specialize in some specific type of business.

Once you have identified the type of web page we need, the next thing is to decide what the creation method will be.
This is the fastest and cheapest method to create a website. It consists of using one of the pages designed to allow users to create their own.
some of these are:
Wix: Beautiful to look at and with many templates available.
wix has become one of the most used web builders thanks to how easy it is to use.
WordPress.com: One of the best known and most used web construction systems.
A favorite of many due to all the different options it provides and the vast community of programmers supporting it.
The disadvantage of using constructors is that the site is not completely ours, what we actually have is a space within the constructor website that allows us to customize and place our information, this creates a dependency on it and the options it has.
This means that if that platform falls your page will suffer the same fate.
It is because of this that many entrepreneurs choose the next option that we will analyze.
Creation of your own and independent website
Step 1: Data collection
Analysis: You will need to state what the purpose of the site is, the objectives you want to meet and which audience it is aimed at.
If you do not perform this step, you could be throwing blows to the harvest and it will not have the impact you are looking for.
Planning: Select the technologies you will use to create the site, its structure and map.
Design: We need to decide the appearance of the site, it will require that we investigate some templates and define the style that will be used prioritizing the one that is easy to use.
Content: The writing of the texts and the use of the correct images will be decisive so that your clients not only enter your page, but also stay on it.
The correct writing of the texts will help the search engines so that they place your page on top, this generates more visits.
Step 2: Development
We already have everything we need, it is time to get to work.
Once the page is mounted (created)
We will enter the information that we chose in advance (if the page was created from 0 you would have to enter the information as you build it.
This is the most complicated and extensive stage. It requires that we be soaked in the technology that we are going to use, that we divide the work and that it be supervised so that it is done according to international safety standards.
Optimization and launch
Testing: The work does not end with the completion of the project. All parts of the site need to be tested to make sure everything is working properly.
This step also looks for ways to improve aspects such as loading time, weight, user interface, site security positioning (anti-attack protection, SSL certificate, virus protection).
Upload it: We will need to rent a Hosting and Domain service, then upload our site and link our site to our domain. Then it is necessary to carry out another series of tests to make sure that everything is in order.
I know what you are thinking, and yes, the list of steps that we analyze are only a summary. The words “website” sound pretty straightforward for the development process it takes to create them.
The creation time is usually 1 to 2 months for professionals in the area depending on the type of project and the quality used. That is why many better entrepreneurs choose to hire a web designer or a digital consulting company.
Both cases have their advantages and disadvantages. The web designer is usually cheaper (in some cases), but being a single person in charge of a complete project could neglect some parts of the site. Many do not have much experience and it is something that you will have to deal with as their clients.
Although consulting companies tend to be more expensive to hire, they tend to give better finished and higher quality jobs. Usually they only hire professionals in the area and this has a positive impact on the project.
Digital consulting firms specialize in the development of digital solutions, including websites of all kinds.
Whether you decide to use a web builder, hire a web designer or a digital consultancy, we hope this information was helpful.
