Website Design

We don’t need to tell you that your website is a crucial element.

We so often refer to it as a ‘shop window’ but it is much more than that today. Websites are expected to convey so much more.

When you visit a website today, you quickly judge for yourself if that site represents a company you trust, one that you would be willing to spend your money with, trust your business to, or recommend to a friend. That decision  is made very quickly.

So how can a website do this for you?

There are many elements that make a website user friendly, starting with the look and feel of the site.

How does the site make you feel when you first visit?

  1. Does the page look balanced with enough space around it to be able to read the content clearly?
  2. Does the navigation make sense to you? Can you find what you want?
  3. Is the content up to date or are you looking at copy written a few years ago?
  4. Has it been well written?
  5. Is the balance between content and graphics right or is a triumph of design over useful information?
  6. Is there a section that allows you to find out more about the company, such as a blog so you can start to learn about that company – do your research?
  7. Is the site connected to social media so you can be more interactive if you wish?
  8. Does the site draw you in or is it so slow that you have rapidly lost the will to live and moved on to the next one?
  9. Is it mobile friendly or are you having to scroll around to try and get to the content?
  10. Is the site easy to find? How far up is the site with its search engine rankings?
  11. Is the site secure or are you getting warning signs that your data may be compromised if you continue?
  12. …and so on..
