What is web development?
In broad strokes, web development is creating (developing) your website from scratch. It involves ideating, creating design and incorporating copy, features, functionality – everything you need your website to do and say – and then making it a reality with computer code. And then, of course, all the testing and optimisations that go with it.
It’s taking your brand’s look and feel, along with specific functions and features and then translating it all to code to make it a reality in the online space.
Why is web development important?
These days, everyone needs a website. And, at the same time, everyone seems to offer web design services of some kind. But a website is not a simple listing or mere “online presence”, no, not anymore. Today, your website can either attract thousands of potential customers to interact with your brand every week, or it can just get lost in the clutter of the web.
Who you choose to do your web development will decide which one of those it’s going to be.
