Your website is your online storefront, and a well-designed website may be the storefront you need to boost your sales this year. A fully responsive, user-friendly website will allow you to engage with your customers on a personal level, just as you would in real life. For many people, your website will be the first introduction to your brand. Include these three elements in your website to create a user experience that will make a stellar first impression!
How often do you leave a website because you can’t find the contact page, information about a company’s policies, or a place to check out? Easy navigation is one of the most important elements of a well-designed website. Every page of your website should be clearly labeled and easy to get to. Not only does this help with creating an aesthetically pleasing website, but it will also help retain visitors and decrease your overall bounce rate.
Responsive Web Design
What device are you reading this blog on currently? Do you use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to check the weather every day? If we asked you to search for the best restaurant in your area what device would you use to find that information? Our guess is that your answer to at least one or maybe all those questions would be your smartphone. According to a survey conducted by Google, 48% of website users felt that a company did not take into consideration their mobile users if they did not have a responsive website that was easily accessible on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
The informational footer of a website is commonly overlooked although it is a very important element of a well-designed website. Your footer should be simple, legible, and informative. Think of your footer as your last chance to grab the attention of your website visitor and influence them to take action, whether that be checking out your Facebook, Instagram, or even sending you an email. The informational footer should be an element of your website that aggregates some of the most important pieces of information that are spread throughout your website.
