Did you know: Every minute, over 150 new websites are created?

150! That’s a lot of competition…

Or is it?

Websites across the world are being built for businesses, charities, clubs, and some just for fun. And it’s no secret that it’s never been easier to build a website with the many different online builders out there.

But just because anyone can build a website, doesn’t mean that all websites are equal.

In many cases, a website is the first impression someone gets of who you are and what your company represents.

It’s a business card that doesn’t get lost. A salesperson that works 24/7 to spread the word about who you are and what you can offer. That’s why having a well-designed and functioning website is so important.  

Here are a few eye-opening website facts we think are important:

Website Tricks and Trips

Building Trust – 3 out of 4 users will assess the legitimacy of your company based on your website design. Designs that look professional and fresh encourage trust. Outdated and poorly designed websites might make someone have doubts.

Usability – Have you ever visited a website and gotten completely lost? Unsure where to find the information you need or perhaps clicking on something that results in a completely unexpected result. This experience can be frustrating and is an easy way to make someone click out of your website. We want our visitors to say on our website, because when they do it can lead to….

Conversions – Your website’s design and function can highlight calls to action, promote unique offers, and make it easier for consumers to find buttons and other clickable features…driving them towards the actions you want them to take.

Responsive – Technology changes in the blink of an eye and there are many websites out there today that were built with no knowledge of what an iPhone or iPad was. And when you visit those websites, they are impossible to navigate. A well-built website not only accounts for the now but for the future.

Your website is one of the most powerful tools for your business.
