If any of these 5 features are still on your website, it’s time to consider a new one.
Think of your website as the face of your business. While there are many aspects to consider when creating a website—usability, SEO, domain name, hosting, etc.—design is one of the most important parts of a quality website.
Design elements include color, sound, size, and navigation. If your website is ugly, for lack of a better term, or it’s confusing for users to find what they need, it’s simple—they will close your website and find a competitor offering similar services with a better, easier-to-use website. If they have no choice but to use your site, then they will probably become frustrated and your brand’s reputation will take a hit.
If your website sports any of these 5 elements, click here to inquire about a re-design!
1. It’s Confusing
Can users tell exactly what your company does when they see the home page and header? Is your site easily navigable?
This is pretty self-explanatory. Pop-ups are not only visually unappealing, they’re also annoying to users.
3. Automatic Audio
This is your company’s website, not your Myspace page in 2005. Any music or audio that is playing upon opening the site must be removed.
4. Clashing Color
A matching color scheme is very important. Don’t use too many colors, colors that clash, or colors that don’t represent your services.
5. Wrong Size
If users have to scroll horizontally to see your websites content, they probably aren’t going to stay long.
