These days anybody can build a website, it really isn't that complicated. However just because they can build a site doesn't mean that they can design it. There is a lot that goes into a well designed website and it is important that you keep this in mind when you are designing your site. A well designed website is critical to your success.
The main reason that you need to make sure that you have a well designed website is that it makes your company look more professional. More accurately a badly designed site makes your company look very unprofessional. Internet surfers are much more sophisticated than they used to be and their expectations are a lot higher. If they come to a site that doesn't look like it was professionally designed they are going to quickly leave and go to another site. Certainly nobody is going to buy whatever you are selling if your site looks unprofessional.
A well designed website should be easy to navigate since this is one of the things that will cost you customers faster than anything else. People expect to be able to find what they are looking for quickly and easily, if they can't they will just go to another site. It is easier for them to visit another site to find what they are looking for than to spend time searching yours. This is one of the reasons that you have to have a well designed site, it is simply too easy for people to go somewhere else to find what they are looking for if you make it difficult for them.
It is important to keep in mind that your website also has to be well designed in order to get your visitors to do what you want them to do. When you build a website it is usually for a reason, it may to make sales directly or it may be to have people sign up for your mailing list or just to provide them with information. Whatever it is you are trying to accomplish your site has to be designed with this in mind. There is little value to getting lots of visitors to your site if they are not doing what you need them to do.
One thing to consider when you are designing your website is that it is one of the most visible aspects of your company. In large part it will affect the way people view your business. This is something that a lot of companies forget when they are designing a website. They focus on using the site for sales, which is fine to a point but you have to remember that there is more to it than that. Your site has to show your company in a good light or it is going to do you more harm than good.
