Why is web design important?
Web design can mean success or failure for your business.
A great web design positively influences visitor experience, brand perception, credibility and trust. Google and other search engines work to understand how users perceive your site and content and reward websites accordingly. The design, therefore, directly impacts the rankings you get in search engines and the results you see. This, in turn, results in more people becoming customers, more sales or whatever other results you may need.
What are the key elements of a good web design?
A good web design keeps the end-user or visitor in mind from start to finish. Simply put, a good website attracts the right audience and works to convince them to take whatever action you wish.
Some key elements of a good web design include:
High-quality user-focused content (Optimised for SEO as appropriate).
Responsive design and mobile optimisation, suitable for all devices and screen sizes.
Compelling design and calls to action.
Fast loading speed (As fast as possible, under 2 seconds).
How long does it take to design a website?
Timelines vary and depend on client expectations, project complexity, and client responsiveness. I believe in setting realistic timescales and will endeavour to set clear expectations for your project.
Planning and my proactive approach allow me to streamline the web design process as much as possible.
If you have specific deadlines, please communicate these to me so I can accommodate your needs.
What is responsive (mobile-friendly) web design?
Simply put a responsive web design changes to work on different screen sizes and devices.
You may also have heard the phrase “mobile-friendly”. Responsive websites are also mobile-friendly.
A mobile-friendly site also factors other elements, notably how fast your site downloads on mobile devices. The benefit of a mobile-friendly website is that it is excellent for your site visitors no matter what device they use. Also, in particular, Google rewards mobile-friendly sites, and they typically enjoy better ranking.
