Creating a presentation website for a company, a non-profit organization, or a project, is the basis of your digital presence.

Creating a website to present your work, your company, to launch an event or a product, allows you to create a dedicated showcase, containing all the related information, and which is accessible and durable.

Today, on the internet, you can create a free presentation site. Especially with online software like ours.

So, how to start on the web by making your presentation website? How to optimize it, and quickly create an effective online presence?

Let's see it all together now…

Why make a presentation site?

Creating a presentation site is one of the best ways to launch yourself into the internet. Indeed, it gives you a digital presence while allowing you to create a showcase for your future projects.

But then, are there really any benefits to a presentation website, compared to social media, for example?

Increase your visibility

Indeed, ranking high up on Google is the best way to improve your visibility.

First, because the search for information on the Internet has become a reflex for most of us, especially before making a purchase. Thus, consumers will be able to find your website by typing your job, your name, or your skills on Google.

Then, because your website is part of your communication strategy, and it allows you to develop your brand image. Finally, because with good tools, a website allows you to increase your sales and revenue…

Controlling your presence on the web

Nowadays, E-reputation influences recruitment and personal image, especially during a job interview. By making your presentation website, you have control over an important part of your digital reputation

Indeed, when a potential client or recruiter will type your name on Google, they will come across your site rather than your Facebook page.

Stand out from the competition

By creating a presentation website, you will have a personalized space, corresponding to your graphic charter. You design your own digital space, and you get rid of the constraints of social media. You can create a permanent website that you can customize to your own liking.

Creating a presentation site is an opportunity, accessible to everyone and a guarantee of professionalism, to establish one’s presence on the internet and improve one’s image.

However, we do not all have the necessary skills to develop a website from scratch…

Get started, it's free

Easily create a presentation site: is it possible?

The suspense won't last very long because the answer is: yes.

With tools such as website builder, creating a presentation website without technical knowledge is (almost) child's play.

But before launching into the web, consider these few things:

Prepare yourself before starting….

The first step: domain name registration

Registering a domain name for your website is the first thing to do.

First, for your brand identity: it is important that your visitors immediately identify you through your web address. However, a subdomain (as it is the case with social media) can lead to confusion.

Moreover, acquiring a domain name is essential to your SEO: it is favored by Google's ranking system. It is therefore essential to register one quickly to add it to your website as soon as possible

Respect your graphic charter

When you are about to build a website, it is usually a few pages. So you have to focus on its  appearance.

Even if you only have a few pages, they must be perfect:

  • In terms of aesthetics: they must be attractive and in harmony with your values.

  • But also in terms of ergonomics, so that your information is clear and accessible.

Respect your graphic charter, the values you wish to convey and the design of your communication materials. If you have a precise idea, you can save time and build a coherent website.

Designing a presentation website: the essentials in terms of content

Regarding the content of your website, there will be two kinds of content:

  • On the one hand, all the information concerning your company or your project.

  • On the other hand, the contact, information, or purchase features.

Think about possible evolutions, such as the creation of a blog or the sale of products. This will give you a clear vision of your progression and the new features you can use in the future.

Now you have all you need to create your presentation site.

And this is where a new character enters our story: SiteW.

Create a website to succeed on the web

The ranking of your website

Even if a presentation website design is very fast and easy, your work is not yet finished once you press the publish button.

Indeed, to have an effective site, which pleases your visitors and the search engines, it is necessary to update it regularly, and never stop improving it.

To improve your SEO, here are some points to respect:

  • Add relevant content and keywords

Your ranking depends on your content and on what you publish on your website. Which allows Google to make you appear on search engines.

You must therefore establish a relevant content strategy by using precise keywords that define you and that can be searched by users who may come to your website.

To integrate these keywords, you must produce content. For this, consider adding a blog or creating a space dedicated to content (about your company, your work, your background…) to optimize your SEO. You can also integrate these keywords in tags and meta tags for search engines.

Easy, isn't it?

  • Check the technical aspect of your website

The technical aspect of a website is also essential to ensure its ranking on search engines.  So the loading time should be reduced, all buttons should lead to existing pages, and the navigation should be fluid and smooth.

Although… In fact, we already take care of that for you.

  • Check your statistics to improve your site

To do this, you can consult the statistics of your site: the Google tools allow you to know your number of visitors, where they come from, and how they behave on your site.

By studying this data, you can know which aspects of your site should be kept or replaced, by testing modifications and observing the results, for example.

Don't forget the following features

On SiteW, some features can help you create a presentation site and add relevant information to it.

Indeed, you may find it useful to add elements such as:

  • A location map

If your business requires you to focus on a specific geographical area, or to meet someone in your office, a location map is a great way to show where you are

For this, consider adding a Map block.

SiteW blocks: Map

  • An online agenda

If your business requires you to make a phone or physical appointment, you can display your schedule or your calendar to allow users to find their preferred time.

Add an Agenda block that allows you to display your schedule or agenda, depending on the mode you choose.

  • Downloadable files

White paper, resumé, form, overview of your work… To give something free to your visitors so that they remember you, you can integrate a Download block.

You will only have to fill in the document to be downloaded in order to make it freely accessible to everyone.

SiteW blocks: Download

  • A subscription block for your newsletter

If you want to build an expert image in your field and improve your reputation, why not create newsletters?

SiteW blocks: Newsletter

Indeed, thanks to the Newsletter block, you can let people subscribe for free in order to offer them quality content and improve your marketing strategy.

  • A FAQ section to inform visitors

Finally, in order to add content and make your site complete, you can also add a FAQ.

SiteW blocks: FAQ

Thanks to the FAQ block, you can create questions and answers in order to give all information to everybody, and anticipate the most frequent questions.

A beautiful and high quality site

Finally, you must take care of the design of your site, because it directly impacts your brand image.

To create a quality design and make it original, you can use:

  • Images and videos

Of course, images, and videos will be an essential component of your design. By using the corresponding blocks, you can add your own images and videos to your website.

This allows you to show your universe and your personality, your work methods or your artistic skills.

However, if you don't have your own audiovisual content, you can pick a stock image from the library of choice, or a video from YouTube, to illustrate your website.

SiteW blocks: Images

  • The illustrations

Without being an expert in graphic design, you can easily illustrate your site with high quality vector illustrations.

Add an Illustration block to access free Illustrations matching your website.

  • Shapes and stripes

Finally, to structure your pages and create depth, you can add shapes and custom bands. This can allow you to segment a page into different zones, highlight your call to action buttons or create a background for an illustration.

Now you're all set to create a great presentation website that's nice and effective, meaning it attracts, retains and convinces people. 👍
