Why is website design important?
For a long time, many companies treated websites as an online brochure for their business. That line of thinking is not only antiquated, but it can even hurt your business nowadays.
At Swiss Tomato, we think of your website as an extension of your brand identity and one of your best salespeople. And here’s how web design plays into that:
It’s Often the First Point of Contact That Customers Have with Your Company
By the time a potential customer contacts your company to discuss a product or service, they’re more than halfway through their decision process.Read more
And most of that decision process happens through online research. A well-designed and easy-to-read website is the bare minimum some consumers will look for when researching purchase options online.
In contrast, a website with an outdated visual design and a lack of responsive design will often make potential buyers completely ignore your online presence. According to research from Adobe, 38% of people who find a website’s layout unattractive stop engaging with it.
A Good Website Will Increase Your Conversion Rates
A customer’s entire purchase journey could start and end at your website, given the site is properly designed. That entails creating content and optimizing your design for every step in your sales funnel.Read more
Our experienced team of web designers will tailor calls-to-action, opt-in forms, and other design elements to fit your customer’s expectations every step of the way.
Alternatively, a website with poor design choices might not have a clear path for a consumer to follow. Without an obvious answer to the question of what to do next, consumers lose interest in short order. A shocking 70% of small business websites don’t implement calls-to-action on their homepage and throughout their website. What a missed opportunity…
Your Web Presence Reflects Your Brand
One of the most important online marketing tools in your playbook is your website. As such, the content of your website is a key channel to communicate your brand identity to audiences.Read more
Advertising and outreach that leads back to landing pages within your site can continuously reinforce your brand to consumers.
Failure to line up your website with your brand image creates confusion. Faced with a disconnect between your brand image and your web presence, audiences tend to lose confidence in your business.
What are the benefits of a good web design?
We’ve established why web design plays such a major role in your business. But at SwissTomato, we focus on what tangible benefits it can provide for your company.
While the principal benefit is improved revenue, a good website helps you get there in several crucial ways.Read more
1. It Improves Your Search Engine Ranking
How easy you are to find online is directly related to how well your website ranks on search engine result pages. And design elements, such as website structure and navigation, visual hierarchy, and page layout, all impact your ranking.
2. It Allows Quick Access to Your Site Across Devices
When customers, both new and established, need results, an underperforming website will make a huge difference in their choice of provider. Moreover, audiences increasingly expect websites to follow them in terms of what device they’re using, so responsive user experience is paramount.
3. Prepares You for Future Updates
Website updates and eventual migrations are all but guaranteed. How well your website is designed and the content management system you use will make a substantial difference in how difficult those updates will be.
4. Improves Sales
Your website can be a sales generation engine far superior to any single person. But one of the key factors of its impact on sales is how well it’s designed.
From the moment someone lands on your page, you have the opportunity to start selling your product or service. Don’t squander it.
5. It’s Necessary to Keep Up with the Competition
Any business in today’s online-driven market that hasn’t realized the potential of web development to improve their performance soon will. Your company is in a position to either invest in high-quality web design or risk falling behind irreparably.
6. It Saves Money in the Long Term
In addition to making future upgrades and updates faster, it also makes them cheaper. Professionally-designed websites are made to scale as needed and you won’t have to invest much in future additions to your online presence.
7. Improves Dwell Time
The longer your potential customers remain on your page, the better it is for search engine ranking and the more likely they are to buy. And how long they choose to stay (dwell time) is directly linked to how well your website is designed to keep them interested.
The principles of good website design
Effective websites have a few shared elements that are indispensable to make them work. Without these, it’s difficult to gain the benefits described above from your website.
Many companies make the mistake of being close-fisted about investing in a website, even trying to get by without spending anything. But they soon find that a free website often ends up being the most expensive choice they ever make. Here are just some of the key elements we take into account when designing a website:Read more
A Website Needs a Purpose
Every good website needs to have a goal it’s trying to achieve. Going one step further, every page within your site should have a clear goal that’s apparent at first glance. It’s worth repeating that your website should be more than just a brochure for your services and the right web designer will understand that.
Responsive Design Is a Must
At SwissTomato we understand that contemporary websites exist in a multi-screen world. Optimizing a website across all devices is practically non-negotiable for everything from good SEO to streamlined user experience.
Content Optimized for Search
It’s all well and good to have a gorgeous website but that won’t help your business if no one can find it. For better or worse, most consumers trust the top sites in their search engine results. If you’re not there, you’re missing out on sales.
Yes, you need engaging content for your site, but that content serves a purpose that goes beyond simply engaging your readers. A web design agency that understands your business will understand how your needs fit into the competitive landscape and how to leverage content-driven SEO to meet those needs.
Good Visual and Navigational Hierarchy
The elements displayed on your website communicate a lot to your audience. It draws their attention to important things and downplays components that are necessary but distracting to the sales process. In the same way, your site’s navigational map can either facilitate your buyer’s journey or hinder it, and an experienced web design agency will leverage that resource.
It Works on an Emotional Level
With a website tailored to your buyer persona, you’ll be able to speak to them from a purely analytical approach to the buying process to an emotional approach. Strategically employing things like video background and emotionally-charged imagery is a critical tool to accomplish that.
Let’s Shape Your Online Destiny Together
Web design is an ever-changing process but the more things change, the more they stay the same. It’s important to know how to separate passing fads from basic design principles. Our proven web development and design agency understands how to implement all the elements to achieve tangible results for you.
Whether you’ve already created a website or you’re still operating without one, it’s never too late to apply quality design to achieve your goals. With the right partner, you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish with even a modest investment in your web presence.
