Does my business need a website?
Nowadays your website is more likely to be the first place potential customers will look to find out information about your company and its services. Whether they simply want to know how to find you, need an answer to a question, see the products you sell or want to place an order; having a well designed website, is crucial to the success of your business.
Good web design means good business
The quality of the design of your website will influence not only how a visitor feels about the professionalism of your services (maintaining a corporate look, connected to web 2.0 services like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Linkedin), but also their sense of trust in using your website.
Research has shown that website design can impact customer’s credibility judgments. It can boost users’ likelihood of believing content; it can influence their probability of trusting the organization operating a website; it can create a strong and lasting first impression. Poor design can evoke mistrust, disbelief, and disregard. When competing in saturated online environments, credulity is a factor that increases or decreases a users’ willingness to believe, act or buy from you, as opposed to your competition.
Web Usability means happy customers
When new visitors arrive at your website, they must see instantly that the website is relevant to their needs and will deliver their goals as quickly as possible. This means good branding, clear navigation and expertly written content (yes, we also develop content). Your website also needs to be as accessible as possible whatever platform or browser your visitors choose (from PC to Mac, to Smartphones).
