There is a famous quote ‘First impression is the last impression’ and this is actually true in case of the websites. Your website is the first image of your company, so it is really important to design it in such a way that it looks trendy as well as catchy.
It doesn’t take a genius to appreciate that if you aren’t designing and building websites today with the gamut of available devices (mobile, tablet, laptop, portable game station, desktop etc.) in mind you’re very quickly going to fall behind.
Think about it – if a user is clicking on the About Us tab it is because they want to know more about you. So tell them! You need to include biographical information on the founders and senior staff.
Where are you? If I want to find your office then I’d like a proper map. Which means one I can scroll, zoom in and out of, and print. Link to Google Maps. You can also include a large photo of your front door – this really helps first time visitors.
A poll of 400 small business owners by software firm Serif reveals that 74 per cent have not designed a mobile version of their website, and 86 per cent have failed to produce an iPad compatible version. Almost half have never considered how their site looks on a smartphone.
It is not 1995. You should not be using flash layouts, wire-frame, Java icons or any other craptacular gimmick.
People who want to get in touch are potential customers. So make it easy for them. List all the people in your firm, complete with email and direct phone numbers.
Your site should tell customers everything you do. In clear language (you are not a “solutions provider” unless you actually sell chemical solvents). Your site should list every product, every service, and be retrospective.
