Try These Web Design Tips To Boost Your Online Presence

Posted on March 24, 2015

The Internet is full of more than a billion web pages and it never stops growing. That means there’s no end to the number of different formats and designs companies and individuals can use to create a website unique to their industry, product or service. The fact is you can create a website to cover just about any topic and reach just about any audience. However, in many cases websites function as vital part of a company’s business and they are not built to reach just “any” kind of audience. 

Stand Out From The Crowd

In order to stand out from the crowd and not only reach your target audience, but also grab their attention and keep them coming back, your website has to be unique and offer them something they can’t find anywhere else. So what does it take to find the right website design that will help increase your traffic and in turn create actual sales? Let’s look at just a few helpful hints:

  • Are You Responsive – perhaps the single most important website design function these days is whether or not your site is responsive. In other words does it format to the device being used to access the site? If your site does not fit a mobile device most people will not stay long; and with so many people accessing the web on the go these days, you will miss a lot of potential visitors and customers if your site is not mobile-friendly.
  • Keep Navigation Simple – some web designers like to get tricky or creative with their nav bars. However, it’s best to keep your nav bar simple. People look for those all-important links – contact us, about us, services, shop, etc. – on every site. Most users prefer functionality over style when it comes to navigating a website.
  • Don’t Go Too Big With Images – one of the most popular trends in web design is using large images as a background. This is popular because you can easily switch it out, which means your site can look newly refreshed on a regular basis. However, it’s important not to think too big. Some images can slow a website down and reduce functionality. Therefore it’s best to keep it simple, clean and not overbearing.
