Technologies keep improving year after year but the importance of a website for companies and professionals will always be at the top.  Website designing and web development are not new. There are several websites designing companies in India but not all follow the customer-centric approach as we do. Majestic People Infotech is an experienced web designing company in Coimbatore, India, and is also an offshore development center for international clients.  Our approach to website design concentrates on giving solutions to clients, which is beyond eye-pleasing templates and advanced features. MPI at first identifies the purpose of the proposed website. We determine if the website is to

  • Help end-users buy something they need.
  • Help them find information.
  • Help them contact others
  • Help them to talk to the organization.

But there are always two sides to a website- visitors to the site and the website’s owners or handlers. MPI ensures that all stakeholders receive the maximum potential out of our website designing services. Hence, the brand identity of our clients along with the products/services they offer, and the interests of the core target audience will be reflected in the web templates that we create. For these, we focus on the following design features as well as other aspects:

Home Page 

This is arguably the most important of a website. The Home Page is what people first see when they visit a company’s website. MPI makes it sure that all information of the brand name and products/services/information offered is visible on the home page. The template will be visually appealing and the fonts/colors which are used will reflect the prime objective of a website.  For example, the website of an educational institution will be different from that of a plastic manufacturer. We also will pay special attention to the placement of images, headers/footers, and navigation menus on all pages.

Mobile Responsiveness 

It is and will always remain the most important aspect of web design. The websites we create will be uniformly accessible on mobile devices of different sizes and screen resolutions, along with being uniformly accessible on all other devices. MPI recognizes that people may visit a client’s website from different platforms. We thus use advanced tools along with the right coding to ensure maximum mobile responsiveness in our coding.

Content Management System 

We understand that the websites for businesses or even websites for government departments in India would have regular activities and modifications.  It may not be productive to entrust all activities that include posting of blogs or small changes to content, on web development company in India. MPI thus utilizes user-friendly content management systems to manage the websites we create, and training is provided to clients. A content management system (CMS) is an application that is used to manage web content, allowing multiple contributors to create, edit and publish.  MPI has expertise in all popular CMS including WordPress, Drupal, and Sitefinity. The most apt one will be chosen for your business and we will guide you on its usage.

Call to Action

The objective of having a website is to convert visitors to customers. MPI recognizes this factor and hence implements proper call-to-action buttons in our web designs. These are in the forms of fill-in-forms, shortcuts to emails/phones, social media links, live chat and more. It could also mean on a website that tells the user to take some specified action. We normally integrate a command or action phrase, such as ‘Sign Up’ or ‘Buy Now’ and generally takes the form of a button or hyperlink.

There are many more such aspects that we at Majestic People Infotech include in a modern web design that is custom-built for your business. Give us a call, mail us or directly visit us for a quick discussion.

Anti-Virus Installation: Such programmes should be installed in all systems and other devices used for business purposes. It is also highly recommended to have a multi-faceted security solution that employs additional protective technologies such as heuristics, firewalls, behavioural-based threat prevention. The purpose is to identify malicious attempts for accessing data or infiltrating your systems before it is too late. A customized anti-virus solution can be preferred when compared to several on-the-shelf products available.

Employee Training: Your workforce should be trained to identify phishing and other malicious attempts by outsiders. Sessions needs to be conducted for security awareness and to ensure that links as well as attachments in mails from unknown senders are not clicked. The questions that need to be asked by your employees include, “Is the sender known? 2) Is there really a necessity to open that file or go to that link? Phishing is a common entrance vector for ransomware and because most end-users never think twice, it’s extremely successful.

Backup the Data: This is mandatory! Your data should always have an alternate storage. This could be extremely useful in unexpected incidents such as natural disasters or lockdowns as we seen now. Options are many from backing up to cloud providers to local storage devices or even network attached drives. Backups need to be regularly maintained and its security needs to be analysed for ensuring no gaps. With this, you can relax even if there was a sudden loss of data from your main systems.

Patching: It requires assistance from third party software such as Java, Flash, and Adobe. These will undoubtedly prevent many of these types of attacks from even being successful in the first place. However, it needs to be noted that patching is only the “tool”. Subject matter experts and/or experienced IT security teams are needed for the implementation.

Reduced Privileges: Confidential data and access to administrative features on systems should only be provided to senor management and experienced members of your IT team. These could be from your own employees, experts hired on a contract or even from an established IT Security firm in India such as Majestic People Infotech.

Designing a website for your brand

We at Majestic People Infotech recognize a brand to be a symbol. A brand is meant to package all of the associations, experiences and characteristics into a single name or symbol. A few decades back, a brand name in India used to be represented or rather promoted through newspapers, television and at times radio networks. However, a brand’s presence as well as its relevance in today’s digital economy necessitates the designing of an official website for the brand.

It isn’t as simple as it sounds. Every professional organization as well as individual operates a website today. So what makes the website of your brand name unique? Moreover, not every website design can complement the unique products and services of a brand. Each business or brand name has its own target audience. For example, designing an online travel portal such as MakeMyTrip.com or Yatra.com would require a web template that is different from a social media network such as Facebook. Here are some of the basic features you need to consider while designing a website for your brand:

• Colour: The choice of a good colour palette is very important in branding. Colour isn’t just about creativity. It stimulates different kinds of emotions for the visitors of your website. For example, red symbolizes passion, energy, power, and excitement. Green symbolizes nature, environment, profit, money, and health. Which colour does your target audience prefer? Other colours carry different associations and effects. However, you need to be careful while selecting a colour theme for your brand’s website design. Varied cultures, religions and even age groups react differently to the same colour.

• Structure: The theme and structure of your brand’s website should also be given attention. The placement of your brand’s logo, the positioning of the menus and the presence of media files play crucial factors. The accepted norm when positioning your site’s logo is to put it in the upper left area of the page. The size of the logo is also important. It shouldn’t be too small or too big.

• Emotion: Emotion is another factor to consider while designing your brand’s website. What feelings and emotions do you want people to experience when they visit your site? What sort of things do you want them to associate with your brand? It isn’t enough if your website is designed only based on the latest trends. The “Human touch” that adds life to your website should be present. Give people what they want. Your website should make them feel that you are one of them.

• Tone: This refers to the language as well as style of content on your website. It should be modelled on the target audience. If your brand is a friendly and down to earth, and your audience are young, tech savvy people, then informal and fun tone of voice may work well for you. On the other hand, if you’re making a website for an investment bank, the tone of voice should reflect that by being much more formal.

Adhere to these points and you can be ensured that your brand’s website stands out from the crowd. A lot is being spoken about the technical aspects of developing a website. Why don’t you leave that to us at Majestic People Infotech? We invite you for discussions on how to develop a unique and cost-effective website for your brand-name.
