Before you start planning your website, you must be clear about your goals, your audience and your brand image.
Also, make sure that you have a way to measure the results, so that you can make further changes in design to improve your website. Because until unless you improve your website performance it all goes in vain.

Ultimately, it’s all about creating a website that works, not just a beautiful website.
