We have been building websites in Palm Springs, California for over a decade and have seen many trends in web design. While designs may differ, there are essential elements that need to be included in any successful website design.
1) User Friendliness:
The main purpose of a website is to communicate. Communicate to your viewers what your business does. That is why having a website that is user friendly is essential to a successful business. When your website is hard to read and difficult to navigate, you are going to lose viewers and potentially customers. That’s why it is important to design your website with user friendliness in mind.
2) Personal Branding:
Your website should be designed to look unique and personalized for your
business. You should make it a point to make sure your website has elements and colors from your existing marketing material. Your business cards, flyers, brochures, and website should all look like they belong to the same company. If you have drastically different colors and styles, then it works against your brand and the effectiveness of your website.
It is important to provide your customers and viewers a way to provide feedback. A lot of people are wary of doing this as it can open the door to a negative response. However studies have shown that you are more likely to get positive responses than negative ones. By interacting with your audience you are able to retain customers and help gain new ones. With the advent of social networking, it is even more effective and easier to achieve this.
These are just a few broad guidelines for an effective website. There are many more that may apply depending on the nature of your business.
