Web Design – where it all begins!
Have you ever considered the impact that effective web design makes for the overall success of your business? Did you know, for example, that if even a small number of your website visitors are clicking the “back” button within seconds of landing on your webpage, not only will you likely lose those customers to your competition, but your overall reputation on Google will begin to suffer! Yep, it’s true. That’s why effective web design is so crucial these days. It truly is an extension of your physical storefront. And in the same way you’d like to leave every customer of your physical store with a memorable experience, the customers in your virtual storefront need to be shown the same amount of attention and consideration, because ultimately, their response will without fail also carry a lasting impact on the success of business.
Take a second and just consider all the ways you try and create a memorable experience for the customers at your physical store: the environment you choose, the location, the decorations, the cleanliness, the friendliness and helpfulness of your staff, the values and philosophies you’d like to convey as a business, etc. Now consider how effective your web design is in conveying these same ideals. Well, if you’re like most business owners today, you probably spend all your time considering the physical location, but nearly no time considering your virtual location(web design), when in reality they are both crucial to your steady growth as a business.
This is why the web design you employ for your business is really the start of any success you might have online. If, for example, you are considering advertising online, or setting up an aggressive SEO campaign, or even asking customers to share your website through facebook or twitter, you will only be as effective as your web design is appealing, interesting, engaging, and trustworthy.
Sloppy Web Design = Sloppy Business
I know, sounds a bit… over the top, right? Well, let’s draw a quick analogy – consider a pizza shop in a small city. Even if this pizza shop is advertised on all the major billboards in that city, and has television commercials on every primetime channel, and even if it’s mentioned on the front page of every local newspaper, all this advertising won’t amount to anything if, when a customer walks through the door, the shop is dirty, slow, full of unfriendly staff members, dim and disorganized. No matter how they got there, any customer who walks into the pizza store’s physical storefront will not feel compelled enough to take action.
And in the same way, your website and web design is the central hub for any marketing and advertising you might do over the internet. It needs to be stocked with web design that is powerful and engaging, well organized and professional, and most importantly, it needs to convey a sense of trust and culture right away. In the same way that customers would walk out of a pizza shop if it’s dirty and disorganized, a website that’s full of bad grammar, a lack of culture, a poor layout, and a “cookie-cutter” template will ultimately be doing your business a massive disservice.
And without even considering how incredibly fickle consumers are today, your web design really needs to lay a powerful foundation of trust and memorability, so that customers are so engaged they are compelled to take action with your business.
