07 Apr Why Website Design is Everything in 2021
Even though we’re nearing the end of the pandemic, there are lots of people who are still shopping online. For example, just because your local customers are shopping at your physical location, your out-of-state customers, International customers, and/or customers with underlying health conditions who have yet to be vaccinated, are less likely to walk through your front door.
Suffice to say, your web design is everything.
Benefits of upgrading your website design
Take a minute and do a mental inventory of your closet. Are there pants, shoes, or belts that are outdated? Do you have things in your closet that were once in vogue, but are now, shall we say, a bit outdated? Would you still wear these items when you go to the market, your kids’ softball game, or a business luncheon? We’re guessing the answer is “no.”
Similar to outdated fashion trends that no one misses, there are tons of old web design trends that are best left in the past. For example, if your website still has a hit counter (i.e., code that tells visitors how many people have visited your website before them), it’s time to update your web design.
Does your website still have a little box at the bottom right corner that tells visitors your website is best viewed with X browser? (such as, “Best Viewed with Microsoft Internet Explorer.” If yes, it’s time to talk to a web designer.
Lastly, are there certain pages on your website that are marked as “Under Construction?” If so, well, you get our gist.
Put your best foot forward
Remember, when your customers find your business online, your website is the first impression they’ll have of your company. It should be easy to navigate, your content should be well written, and its layout should be aesthetically pleasing. It should have a clean, polished appearance, your website’s pages should load quickly, and it should be designed in a way that keeps visitors on your pages for longer.
