You’ve Designed Your Site, Now Test It Right
As with most creative processes, there are a variety of ways to build a website. Some minimalists will design sites using outmoded mediums simply because they’re more easily processed in certain service regions. This is best done with a thematic element of the “meta” variety. That is to say: the site is self-consciously antiquated; like modern vinyl use.
But being mired in antiquated solutions also happens if you don’t have access to, or knowledge of, the most recent website development tools. In this secondary scenario, you’re likely to experience effectiveness losses as a result. Your website won’t work as well as it could, and it won’t work as well as it needs to.
Especially in scenarios where something is being sold, clients visiting your site should feel they can trust it. If it runs poorly, that’s a red flag. It may be a subconscious red flag, it may be a blazing “don’t buy here” klaxon. But it’s not some silent indicator.
Know What Your Site’s Primary Concentrations Are
Will your site be used in an informational way, will users be downloading software from it, will transactions be made? Is there a blog? Is there some combination of all these factors simultaneously? Know what you need, and what must be properly streamlined for regular use.
Once you’ve figured these things out, then it becomes time to test them. Unfortunately, some test solutions that deliver metrics end up costing quite a bit. As a one-two punch, the ones that cost the most don’t always deliver the most.
According to Stackify.com, ASP.NET performance monitoring solutions will vary from application to application: “Depending on the task, some of these tools will be much better than the others.” What this ultimately means is that these tools may not be the best solution in all categories, but in several they have a great deal of pros compared against tangent options.
Here’s the thing: tool suites like ASP.NET, which is an Open Source platform that has been in continuous development since 2002, are going to save you money even if they don’t outperform competition. When competition has a price tag attached, the question becomes: where does the ROI lead you? Return On Investment is exceptional when “investment” is nil.
Time Is Money
This is a common expression, and one which yet stipulates using the most appropriate testing and metrics generation solutions. When you have to spend a lot of time honing something, you lose a lot of opportunity that could subsequently yield profit. Ergo, time is money. In most cases, ASP.NET applications save both, making it a default choice.
Additionally, when you can free up time, this allows you to develop disparate applications. You’re able to do more with more time, it’s that simple.
A Burgeoning Quotient Of Infrastructure
Trends tend to travel from the top down. Where in the late eighties and early nineties, websites were a curiosity among those who could afford them, today they are so ubiquitous anyone with an e-mail address can host their information on a “website”. Maybe it’s through Wix, maybe it’s through WordPress. But they’ve got a URL they can give potential clients.
You don’t want to be lumped in with those who haven’t the funds to design their own website; that’s a different tier of professionalism. But if you pay to design your own, it should be dynamic and functional enough to supersede such low-level applications.
Professional, infrastructurally relevant websites should communicate security and a design integrity which tells the user that all care has been put into operations.
