The main objective of having a web page for a restaurant is to provide internet users with smart and user friendly websites that turn them into reservations, and eventually repeat customers. If you are planning to get a restaurant website design, here are 3 simple ideas that can help you get started:
1) Hire a Professional Photographer
People want to see what you serve and how it looks on a plate. A restaurant website design is for the most part incomplete if you don’t have professional photographs of the premise, the staff, and more importantly the food. Photographers can provide you with photos from a customer’s point of view by using focus and lighting primarily.
2) Avoid Excessive Styling and Texts
You have a short span of time to put a striking impression on potential customers that translates them into reservations. You don’t really want to welcome users on your website with some cheesy music playing in the background and a flash animation playing along with it. Excessive styling of menus and page layouts along with long stories about the owner, history, and the staff of a restaurant just make matters worse. Brief content and simple yet elegant styling can work in your favor to put it all out there in the few minutes an internet user spends on your website.
3) Serve Mobile Users Too
A restaurant website design should be optimized to cater to mobile users. All you need to get is a small code line on the homepage to recognize mobile users. Mobile users will be redirected to a mobile optimized page where the summary of all the content in the website is featured. As mobile users increase by the day, this may very well be the deciding factor in the success or failure of your restaurant website design.
We make sure your website represents your restaurant and brand with built-in marketing tools to attract customers.
