The Importance of a Good Website Design

Jun 15, 2008
For those who operate a commercial site this is a critical point to note. Poor website development will significantly reduce the potential to make sales because visitors wont stay on the site long enough to make conversions viable.

Imagine if you were a visitor to a site and quickly discovered that the site was a slapdash site loaded with web development disasters. That is, the website was cluttered with text, limited in the amount of graphics it possessed, and filled with annoying pop up ads. Would that even remotely sound like good website design?

Hardly! In fact, it would seem that the website designers either didn't know what they were doing or they flat out didn't care. In such a case, visitors to the site may very well look at the site and think "Well, if the web publisher doesn't care then I don't care." Needless to say, such of visitor will depart the site within a very short period of time.

It is also important to point out here that visitors will not separate the low quality work of the website designers from the website's publisher. They are not going to say "I think I will waste 20 minutes on this confusing website because I am sure the publisher meant well.

No, they are simply going to be dismissive of a website as amateur hour. Clearly, this will shatter the confidence in the visitor in regards to the individual who is publishing the site. This is understandable. What decent level of confidence can a poorly composed website provide? The answer is obvious: ZERO!

If consumer confidence is shattered then it is highly doubtful that the customers will even remote agree to a purchase. If the website design is awful then how could the products sold be any better? Even if the website publisher has a sincerely outstanding product, poor website design will completely undermine his ability to promote his wares. This is an undeniable fact web development publishers need to be fully aware of!

Of course, the inverse is true as well. If solid website designers are employed and they do a solid website design job then the ability for a website to be commercially successful will be possible. Because so much commerce is conducted on the internet, the demand for website designers has increased.

Now, there are so many designers out there that deals are easier to come by. Considering the low cost options available for hiring a web designer, there is really no reason to avoid putting one on the proverbial payroll!
