The Importance of a Good Website Design
Your website is the centre of activity of your online business; it serves as a virtual representation of your firm, whether it is physically present or not. People cannot see you physically when conducting business with you online, as they can when dealing with an offline company. As a result, people do evaluate you by the covers of your books. This is where a well-thought-out design comes into play.
Assume you’re the owner of a brick-and-mortar business. Would you allow your salespeople to interact with your consumers dressed in bad or informal clothing? By requiring your employees to dress professionally, you are showing to your clients that you value quality. This works because initial impressions are important.
Similarly, your website is in the same boat. If your website is badly put together and appears to be a 5 minute “quick fix,” you are effectively telling your visitors that you are unprofessional and unconcerned about quality.
On the other hand, having a completely professional-looking website layout gives your visitors the impression that you have paid close attention to every aspect and that you value professionalism. You’re well-organised, focused, and serious about your work.
On the other side, everything relating to your business should be well-designed. Every detail counts, from business cards to letterheads to promotional brochures. This is because, as your company grows, these objects will become the face of your company. Consider the “salesperson dressed unprofessionally” analogy once more, and you’ll see what I mean.
