🖥️ Building Trust
Three 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 Outdated and poorly designed websites might cause doubts for your prospects.
Many of the visitors to your website may not have a personal connection to you. In those cases, your website sets the first impression for your business. Even if someone was referred to you, it’s important to set a positive impression – showcasing your brand and capturing the attention of your prospects.
A professional site signals trust with your audience. It also elevates your customer service appeal. An updated and modern web design is the equivalent of a friendly face greeting your new visitors.
Have you ever visited a website and gotten completely lost? This experience can be frustrating and is an easy way to make someone click out of your website. Visitors’ attention spans are short. If your navigation is poor, you’ll discourage your audience from engaging on your page.
A properly designed navigation will help them get to the information they need quickly while encouraging them to check out additional information.

Responsive design ensures that your visitors have a good experience on your site, no matter what device they use. A well-functioning website will adapt to ensure the view is sized appropriately for any device. This is valuable for keeping leads engaged and interested in your site.
