Website designs these days can be created by anyone with a computer, from a 13 year old to a 80 year old with little or no experience. The difference is that not all webdesigners are the same nor are their web designs.
While some designs are excellent and work quite well, all to often we hear of problems associated with websites created by someone not necessarily involved full time within the industry nor is it their first point of business. From not being able to contact the person to updating the website, to not having access to the website at all, to being totally dependent on that person who will update, change or alter your website when it suits them be it today, next week or never, just to name a few.
Some types of website designs work better than others, so remember while you might want an all singing all dancing website, with all the bells and whistles, and while it may look great for your potential clients, all will be lost if the search engines don’t rank your website highly, or indeed a potential customer can’t view your site because they don’t have the latest computer or plugin, or fast internet access and it takes forever to load.
The design of your website does and will reflect your business image, just as your premises of your business reflects your business and or the way the telephone is answered. First impressions are important!
Your website needs to be designed in such a manner that it is easier for the search engines to spider and decide where in the search engines (such as Google) your website will appear for certain keywords. While your website will not just appear no 1 in google and requires much more than good webdesign to achieve this, it all goes towards the goal of good traffic and enquires and or sales for your business.

When a potential client lands on your website, you have approximately 22 seconds to impress them….not much time, granted ….. however, with a well laid out design, good navigation, loads fast and has relevant content, 22 seconds is more than enough.
Until Next Time …
