The Risks Of A Poor Website Design For Your Business

Some business owners may not yet be convinced that they need a professionally designed website and are prepared to continue with their existing site, or worse, continue with no website and thus have no online presence at all. Their reasons may vary, but they may include not knowing where to find professional web designers or a fear that the costs of a new website may be beyond them. We can address both right here, as Slinky has web designers and programmers who can build the website, and as for cost, we have packages to suit all budgets. We even have monthly payment options so that every business, regardless of size, can benefit from a new, professionally designed website. If, even after these reassurances, you are still not convinced that a new website can benefit your business, it may be more appropriate to consider the risks to your business of a poor website and the damage that it can do. These risks are many and varied, but in each case, they either make it harder to attract new customers or, worse, can drive existing customers away. Coupled with this are the additional risks of trying to cut corners. Instead of using professional website designers like Slinky, you opt for a cheaper option, like a freelancer on Fiverr, to design your website. Whilst we are sure many of these freelancers try their best, they do not have the resources to plan, design, and build a fully functioning website for a business.

3 Common Web Design Mistakes Made by Small Businesses

These Web Design Mistakes Are Common but Completely Avoidable When a visitor comes to your website, your first priority should be to engage them and grab their attention so that they convert from prospect to customer. With this aim in mind, you might feel overwhelmed and make a few mistakes. While we all live and learn, these mistakes can cost you hundreds of dollars within hours – a luxury you cannot afford. Having a not-so-better understanding of your target audience and focusing more on appearance rather than content are some of the common web design mistakes made by business owners every day, causing enormous loss of money. 1. Rushing the Job without Doing Any Research The first step is to be patient and focus more on web design concerning the target audience instead of pondering the time it takes to get the website online. If you define your target market before starting with the design, you can find out the direction you’ll be heading. Now, plan your whole design around this research. For example, at this point in time, you need to know the age, gender, buying power, problems, needs, etc. of your audience. Do not think about how much time is spent in the initial phases; your website will be your online identity, and your patience will be worth it.

Grow Your Company Using A Web Design Team

There are a couple of things to consider when planning any project, including web design. Firstly, you will need to decide whom to work with, you will need to determine your clientele, get sufficient quotes and of course, after sale service. Let’s look at some of these points in detail. 1. Choose People You Want To Work With Saying you should work with people you like is a little corny, but let’s face it, you are going to spend some time with the team you choose to do your website. Moreover, you will have to share at least some of the big ideas you have for taking your business forward. So, don’t spend that valuable time with people who talk too fast, who don’t understand you… or that you just plain old ‘don’t like’. Choose people who share your objectives for your new website, it should take about 15min. to figure this out at the beginning of the meeting. You’ve got to feel something good here, folks.
