Oy vey. We are scathing about websites. We really are.
It's just the way our minds work. A spelling mistake here, some garish colours there, big chunks of text that immediately make our eyes glaze over.
When it comes to websites, we don't like lazyand we don't like sloppy. If the first impression isn't good, chances are we will never visit that site again.
There are so many badly designed websites out there. Is yours one of them?
Good design is as little design as possible.
How's Your Bounce-Rate?
'My what now?'
Bad website design causes a bounce-rate. This means when your design is ugly or unattractive, people will not click on it after the first page. This act is called bounce and it's a proven fact with online behaviour.
Let's cut to the chase. Is your website ugly? Does it make your audience click away after viewing just one page? If it is, your website is working against everything you are trying to achieve.
Your website is your crystal clear reflection online. It has significant power for positive or negative first impressions that once created will prove difficult to change.
In 2020, we innately judge the credibility of organisations and businesses by their websites.
