Scrolling through stock image sites like Unsplash is a great way of finding inspiration. Just type in some keywords relating to your product or industry and pick out a few images that you feel best represent your business.
Try picking images that use similar colours, as this is a subtle but effective way of creating a sense of brand consistency, especially if these colours are also incorporated into the design of the website.
Have these images ready to hand over to your website builder and not only will they love you for it, but they’ll be able to create a platform-friendly, tailored site that perfectly showcases your brand.
The next step is to decide how many pages your website is going to have. You may think you don’t need to do this until after it’s built, but the number of pages and style of content will influence the structure and overall design of the site. So it’s much better to have this ready beforehand, rather than have to waste time (and possibly money) later on tweaking and adapting the design to accommodate any changes.
