It is widely accepted today that a website plays a critical role for a small business. For example, a dental clinic that offers dental implants needs a website to inform potential patients on the dental implants process, benefits and prices. The website tells about successful stories of patients who have regained their beautiful smiles.

The field of web design has different areas of expertise that include graphic design, user experience design, scripting and coding, content creation, network security configuration, information design and search engine optimization or SEO.

The key skills that a web designer or web developer must possess include both HTML and CSS; programming languages that are used to create parts of a web page and their visual styles. Web browsers use HTML and CSS code in determining what users will see in a website. HTML or Hypertext Markup Language is coding language used in describing content on web pages and how it is structured.

JavaScript is a programming language that is used to dynamically control the content of a web page. Web developers often use JavaScript to make websites interactive. JavaScript is also used in the creation of web apps, interactive maps, scrolling images and dynamic videos.

Potential web developers need basic working knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript to get started in web design and development. The amount of information that has to be learned in web development is overwhelming particularly when information has to be geared towards advanced web design.

However, it may seem surprising that there are still businesses that do not have websites. GoDaddy’s recent Global Entrepreneurship Survey revealed that 43% of respondents in business savvy Hong Kong do not have business websites. Many of the businesses simply rely on social media channels like Facebook and Instagram to gain awareness for their brand.

Patients who have regained their beautiful smiles will tell you that undergoing dental implants process is the best decision they made in their life. Even if the process takes about 4 to 6 months, patients prefer dental implants because it gives their smile a natural look. They exhibit a newfound confidence that they never had before.
