Creating websites: selecting the necessary components and modules
Creating websites for modern companies involves the development of a number of components and modules necessary to implement the functions of these sites, determined by the needs of their target audience. Without functional components and modules, sites will not be able to provide all the necessary information or services to their visitors.
Selecting the necessary components and modules is an important step in the site creation process. In the future, it largely depends on whether the site will be effective. What are the components and modules may be needed?
News. The module for displaying news is present on almost every site today. It provides site visitors with convenient information about all new phenomena and events that are of interest to the target audience.The news module is almost always needed on sites, except in cases when the site content is updated very rarely or not at all.
Image gallery. Without an image gallery, it is difficult to imagine most sites on the global network. You can use the gallery to present your company’s completed projects and products on the site. Graphic images or photos provide information in a very convenient, almost universal form, and are easily perceived by visitors.
Subscription and mailing list. The component responsible for sending news to all site users who subscribe to it, as well as the module that provides convenient interaction with such a component, must be present on sites with regularly updated content. News sites, online stores,as well as official web representations of companies and corporate resources-all of them require the inclusion of a subscription and mailing module in the creation of sites.
Feedback form. It is always important for site visitors to know that there is a real company behind it, which you can contact at any time. In this case, the feedback form is convenient: messages sent through it get to a specific mailbox, which can be assigned when creating a site. Interaction with the target audience through the feedback form increases the level of trust of visitors to the site.
Guest book. To date, the creation of sites involves the development and installation of guest books only in rare cases, they have mostly been replaced by components and modules for commenting, allowing site visitors to Express their opinion about each published material. However, in the field of online sales, for example, the guest book on the site remains an important element of its usability.
Forum. Perhaps the most” controversial ” of all components and modules for the site is the forum. Creating sites often involves developing and installing a forum, but only in a few cases is this really necessary. If the forum is empty — this is a serious blow to the reputation of the site and, as a result, the entire company.
Online consultation. The ability to provide advice to site visitors online will be very useful for online stores, as well as sites of companies that advertise their services and products on the Internet. Thanks to the components and modules for online consultations, the effectiveness of selling products over the Internet is growing, because visitors get comprehensive answers to their questions in “real time”, which undoubtedly contributes to increasing the trust in the site.
