What is Web Design?
In simple terms, web design is a structured design that should be eye catching to your visitors to make them want to buy your services. Along with having an eye catching web design, there are a few other factors that go along with getting more online traffic to your website.
- SEO or Search Engine Optimization – SEO is very important when it comes to wanting to be found online. It involves adding keywords to your content to help make your website found by search engines. When it comes to adding the keywords to your content you want to add your keyword about once every 100-150 words.
- Good Quality Content – Every website should have good quality content to ensure that readers are interested in what you have to offer. Good content and a seamless web design can make visitors stay on your website longer.
How can my business benefit from a seamless web design?
If your website is professionally laid out and organized with good content, nice images, and call-to-action buttons that leads your customers to contact you. Your website will surely make you money. Istock is a great place to find images for your website. You want images that aren’t blurry or pixelated. That look nice and match what you’re trying to achieve with your business. Another idea is to hire a professional photographer to take images for your website. Both Istock and/or a professional photographer can surely help your website look great! Overall, a seamless web design is all about images that look good and a website that is properly laid out.
Another idea is to hire a content marketer or an SEO specialist to help give you good readable content and to help you find the best keywords that fit your business.
What are some things you should stay away from that could harm your web design?
WEBSITE BUILDERS!!!! Website Builders offer business owners cookie-cutter designs. Which means they offer you the same designs that other businesses use. You want to look for a one-of-a-kind, stunning web design that will make your business rank higher in search engines. Website builders also don’t provide your ‘cookie cutter design’ with SEO(Search Engine Optimization) which is an essential part of customers trying to find your business online. These website builders you should stay away from include:
These website builders don’t offer enough creativity to meet the needs your brand will be looking for in the future. Some of them get to be more complicated to use once you get through the stages of adding your Business Name, Primary colors, content, and images. Once you get done doing all of that you’ll be like, “Wait, I want to change one button to be a different color from the other ones.” It starts to get more and more complicated as you work with a website builder. So, another way to go is to find a web designer/developer or to go with a web development agency like us.
If you’re looking for a website for your business, wasting your time with a website builder really won’t benefit you at all. That’s why going with a web development agency like Electrify Web Development, or a web developer or web designer will be your best bet to having a website that drives traffic to your business. In other words, having a website that makes you money!
