Typically, organisations redesign their websites every two years. But some organisations put it off. Why? They often feel it is too expensive or they don’t have the skills to do it themselves. What if we told you, you don’t have to spend big bucks to get your website designed. In fact, here at Advance, we can develop a website for your business and its specific needs at a fraction of the cost you might expect.
Do you know why good website design is so important in this day and age?
It all comes down to 4 important points.
Today, everyone is mobile, so your site designed by Advance will be mobile and tablet compatible. HubSpot have found that 74% of potential customers will wait 5 seconds for a page to load on their mobile device before abandoning the site, and 46% of consumers are unlikely to return to a website if it didn't work properly during their first visit. This is the time to make your website mobile compatible.
Layout & Colour
First impressions (as well as load time) are what affect your site’s performance, but you don’t want your website to be dull as well. 50% of your site visitors concentrate the most on the first two paragraphs and the other 50% scan the first few words of subheadings, bullet points and keywords in the paragraphs. Above the fold is where all your critical/relevant information and imagery should be to keep both these types of visitors engaged.
We will produce a website that is easily indexable by search engines. More than half of internet users, do not scroll past the first page of search results. With our SEO expertise, we will get your website found so you don’t miss out on the valuable leads and potential customers that you deserve.
It may not sound that important, but why would you want a website that takes 3-5 seconds to load? Although 3-5 seconds is not a long time, it does make a difference. When it comes to building traffic and keeping visitors on your site, load time plays a viable role. Faster load times also mean lower bounce rates!
