Why Having a Professionally Designed Website Is Best for Your Business

Monday, February 15th, 2010

In this day and age, a website is an important, almost essential feature of any business. Having a web presence gives potential customers somewhere to go in order to find the information that they need on your company without having to go through the hassle of contacting you or travelling anywhere. They simply need to type a few words into a search box and all of the information that they need is right there in front of them.

Of course, you could use a free website builder to make your website or you could even try a hand at learning some simple coding and knocking up a basic design. You can’t go wrong with some flashing lights and vibrant text colours, right?

Wrong.

In fact, those things and design features are the cardinal sin of web design. So many websites with great potential are ruined by the fact that people do not have an eye for the best kind of web design. People seem to think that adorning their pages with flashing pictures and garish colouration is the kind of design that will bring the visitors flocking in.

Whilst these kinds of design techniques may work on posters that the eye only has to fixate on for a second, a web page that customers may look at for an extended period of time should be simple and easy on the eye. The need for fancy banners is minimal as it is highly likely that the person visiting your site is already interested and thus does not need to be “drawn in” by your graphics.

For these reasons, it is best for your website that you hire someone who has an eye for detail and a level of experience in making a website look exactly how it should. If you are truly serious about increasing your sales with an online presence, what you need is a professional web designer.

It is easy when browsing the internet to tell which websites have been designed by proper web designers and which ones have simply been knocked together by someone with a few minutes and a copy of Microsoft FrontPage to play around with.

A professional is able to produce a reliable website based around a skin that has the correct level of flashiness compared with easiness on the eye. They can produce the kind of website that someone would be happy to look at for long enough to read through the information. If you look at the most popular commerce websites, eBay and Amazon, you can tell that they are both easy on the eye. This is done so that people can spend hours happily browsing these sites without being distracted by stupid graphics and these sites pull in millions of pounds every year.

The moral of this all is that it is certainly worth shelling out the money when making your website to hire someone who can produce a proper design. If your site looks good, then people will buy your products. It is that simple, so make the right decision today and show just how serious about business you are.
