Web Design Thoughts
When your audience visits your website, it gives them their first impression of your business. They will judge your business within seconds. In these first few seconds, you want to make a positive impact on your audience.
If your website looks unappealing or outdated, your audience will immediately have a negative impression of your business. The impression you make on them can either get them to remain on your page and learn about your business or leave your page and turn to a competitor. People don’t trust poorly designed websites. If they see your poor design or the information looks outdated, they won’t trust your site.
It’s important to build trust with your audience so they remain on your site. When visitors remain on your site longer, you create more opportunities for your business to capture those leads.
Your website’s design is an opportunity for you to set your business apart from the competition. When you’re competing with other businesses, you generally have the same services and similar pricing. A well-designed website could give you the edge.
I work mainly with CMS systems, like WordPress, Squarespace, WooCommerce, and Shopify if you need online sales. The tools they provide are outstanding and allow much of the implementation to be done with very little coding.
I take every opportunity to work on a design that satisfies. And I work with clients blending our ideas to help get us to that place. My goal is visually eye-catching, uncluttered, clear, and functional.
