Integrating an illustrated map by Maria Rabinky on your eCommerce site can be a great marketing strategy. It will allow users to determine the location at a glance because prominent parts of the landscape are highlighted. Another option is Google Maps to help prospective clients find the business in the easiest and most convenient way possible.
Meanwhile, in web design, the sitemap is used to organize and incorporate a high volume of information. Expert web designers usually create wireframes and mock-ups to plan a site before starting on design but for non-designers, a sitemap will a more effective planning tool.
The website’s goals must be clarified before it is designed and before the content is created. By making a decision on what you exactly want from the website and then mapping it out, you will be assured that every part of the website will reinforce the goals. Parts that are not directly important to the website’s purpose can be removed before they become an integral part of its architecture.
Very often, companies usually start with a “business card” website and then hack off the choice pieces for functionality. It is better to determine the goals of the website before launching it to save money, time, energy, and resources. An example is a duplicate content which is a waste of time and resources. Existing content on a page can be linked to another place that needs the same information.
Without a sitemap, it will be difficult to determine duplicate content. Pages will be created without tracking content that has already been created. In some instances, this can result in conflicting information on the site with one page updated while the other isn’t. Things can be simplified by ensuring that duplicate content is combined in a single page and linked to wherever it needs to be referenced.
While sitemaps are for websites, illustrated maps are for businesses. If you want an illustrated map of your town, city, resort, or campus, you can email Maria Rabinky for a proposal to meet your needs. Illustrated maps can be described as a product of creativity and skillful combination of geography, architecture, and information.
