We design with the end user in mind. Who is your target demographic? What appeals to them visually? What device are they most likely to view you on? Is your site informational or interactive? We have Superhero nerds who work out the programming, but the front end is all about customer experience.
MINIMALISTIC HOME PAGE
We rarely read every word on a website. Instead, we quickly scan pages, picking out keywords and sentences. With these known behaviors in mind, it’s better to appeal to emotions rather than word count. The less someone looking at your site has to read, click on or remember, the better they’ll be able to process and evaluate what’s going on in front of them. That makes it more likely for them to do what you wanted them to do in the first place. We have about 15 seconds and the space of a cell phone screen to engage our customer and make them stay on our site. If they can’t tell what you do in this period of time, they are on to your competitor.
With computer screens and smartphones, as the technology to display information evolves, it remains the designer’s job to arrange the content in a clear manner. You only have a few seconds to grab someone’s attention and tell them what your site is about. If you establish a clear hierarchy to your information, readers can’t help but unconsciously follow the breadcrumbs you have left for them. Then apply color, contrast, size and spacing for further accentuation, remaining conscious of what is drawing attention on your page and making sure that it’s always intentional.
EASY TO READ, EASY TO NAVIGATE
“Readability” measures how easy it is for people to recognize words, sentences, and phrases. When your site’s readability is high, users will be able to efficiently scan your site and take in the information in the text without much effort. It may be of your design nature to break the mold, but website navigation is not the place to be avantgarde. Don’t send visitors on a wild goose hunt when wandering through your site. A site with a solid navigation helps search engines index your content while improving the viewers’ experience.
RESPONSIVE, MOBILE FRIENDLY
We live in a mobile society, which makes it important to ask the question: What do my visitors see when they access my website on the go? Never fear! We automatically create a mobile-friendly version of your site for you so that you can keep pace with the increasingly mobile world. Be sure to put yourself in the position of the user, and test out every page, user action and buttons.
FLEXIBILITY & COST SAVINGS
Online is much cheaper from print advertising, advertisement is accessible for a longer period of time, has wider reach, and can be edited along the way with less cost.
The Internet has allowed small businesses to break through the geographical barriers and become accessible, virtually, from any place in the world.
ADD VALUE & SATISFACTION
By offering convenience, one point of reference with around the clock customer service, a business ultimately adds value to their customer experience creating a higher level of satisfaction.
A business website gives the opportunity to educate and inform potential customers. Most people go online these days to research particular supplier or brand before decisions are made.
