As a Phoenix website design company our goal is to help you become successful online. There has been numerous times when a client would come to us to have their website redone and we noticed design mistakes that make us cringe. They appear to be small mistakes on the surface but ends up costing them big time. That is why it is so important that you take your time when hiring a web designer because if you don't they will do things that you may not catch but it will silently be costing you business. A more expereinced company understands what is that makes an online business successful. They not only will have experience designing websites but also experience helping small online business owners much like yourself become successful. Let's take a closer look at the mistakes that make us cringe everytime we see them.
- Don't write books – So many websites have a ton of text all jumbled together and it makes it very difficult for the visitor to find what it is that they are looking and it visually looks very unappealing. What you should do is let the images or videos speak for themselves. Only give the needed information as text and make it visually appealing.
- Make your website images clickable – With responsive web designs becoming popular due to the popularity of mobile devices to search the web you want to make sure that you make your images clickable. There are times where the image not being clickable on your website makes sense when viewing it from a desktop or laptop computer however, when you view it from a mobile device such as a smart phone or tablet the images become much larger. Because the images are larger all of the sudden it appears that they should be clickable and users get frusterated because they think the link is broken.
- Make sure your pages are easily found – Many times if you talk to a website owner that owns a brick and mortar store what page or product they believe their website visitors are visiting the most and most of the time they will assume it is pages of their products that is the best selling in the store. This would seem logical however, many times this is not the case because those pages are hidden deep in the website and visitors to their website can't find those pages.
- Make sure that users are safe – We live in a world that our identities are very fragile and purchasing things online make people feel a bit uncomfortable. That is why you need to make sure you assure your vistors that they are safe when entering personal information on your website. There are too many websites that don't mention this at all and it causes a large number of visitors to shy away from using their website.
These are the mistakes that make any professional Phoenix web design company cringe when they see them. Unfortunately, these are mistakes that we see more times than not. Make sure that you take your time when searching for a web design company. They will make you more successful and save you money down the road from having to get another website redesign.
